Unlike Twitter, Twitchy doesn’t have a built-in filter that warns of potentially sensitive content, so we’d caution readers about scrolling down and seeing the horrible quote that was removed overnight from a Houston middle school wall after a photo went viral on Twitter.

Last warning …

The Dallas Morning News reports:

A misogynistic quote pasted above the lockers at a Houston ISD middle school was removed overnight after a photo of the quote went viral Friday on Twitter.

Lisa Beckman originally tweeted the photo Friday afternoon, saying the quote was “perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women and relinquishing boys of all responsibility.”

She said her friend took the photo at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School and sent it to her, which turned into a viral post with about 18,000 likes and 7,200 retweets as of Saturday afternoon.

Good thinking tagging in Shannon Watts of Moms Demand.

Whoa. Thank goodness the school acted quickly before any kids saw it.

Phew, that was close.

Didn’t you read the story? It’s right there in the first sentence: “A misogynistic quote pasted above the lockers ….”

What will they be learning?
