Paperduck,

The reason I brought up "the fallacy of appealing to ignorance" is because Gerry said "You say it`s fake... .prove it."

Trying to prove a document does not exist is near impossible.

The notes that you have provided in your link were not included in your original post. They do however state:

"However, there is not yet absolute certainty about the authenticity of this document. It still may be the case, as some have suggested, that this is an urban myth made up in the 1970s."

He also says that he got a phone call from an 85 year old woman that remembers seeing these when she was 7 -- not exactly a great source.

The link Gerry provided pretty much says that this list cannot be verified.

I`ve also provided a link to snopes that supports it`s an urban myth.

My point is that this has been around for years now. If it was the list of rules was that common, then an original copy of

Rodin, yes we understand that principle but generally it`s used for something that is unexpected. For example if I say my 1995 Chevy was built in Michigan and you say "prove it" is quite a different thing than if I say it was specially built in France and you asked for proof. The Chevy built in Michigan in 95 is with reason of what we know. Why would you think it wasn`t built in Michigan? Actually proving this particular car was built in Michigan may be very difficult. Do you see the distinction? So I think what folks and myself are saying is that these rules are within reason for what we know. Also, read the notes at the bottom of the link

Gerry, the burden of proof falls on the person making the original claim. I was being a critic of that claim. Alex Michalos, in "Principles of Logic" states: "If this responsibility or burden of proof is shifted to a critic, the fallacy of appealing to ignorance is committed"

That sounds like an interesting book, I`ll definitely keep an eye open for it.

Rodin, search for a book called "Mamie Papers". It`s a brilliant collection of letters from that time between a one eyed jewish immigrant prostitute and a Bostonian socialite. It gives an insight into what the world was like for poor and middle class. Their daily troubles and rules they lived by...so very different from ours.

I think these are reasonable limits for a school teacher. You say it`s fake... .prove it. Show me a source that has different rules than these.

Gerry, believing it`s real and wanting it to be real are different from actually being real. A little like believing mountain goats are really goats.

My point is that nobody can come up with the original source to prove that it is real.

Rodin, I think it`s real. I`ve done a bit of reading from this era and it`s a time when girls who worked at the counter in department stores were considered "easy". I have no problem believing this list is real and they wanted "morally pure" girls to teach classes.

These are basically still the rules for teachers; both male and female.

I`m not trying to troll. This has been passed around the internet for years and has never been verified. Gerry`s link confirms this.

Just calling out a piece of BS.

#4 specifically prohibits loitering only in downtown "ice cream stores." There`s no mention of bars or opium dens.

@paperduck: i believe that once a woman married it would be an embarrassment to her husband for her to continue working.

@pduck, its hard to marry if you can`t keep the company of men. But yes teachers would get fired if the got married, it was assumed they wouldn`t be able to take care of both their class duties and home duties.

This continued on for many years, even in the Netherlands, a progressive country, female teachers were to remain single to remain employed until the 60s.

My only question... #6 excludes husbands, so were teachers expected to be single for life? But other than that I bet everyone was happier and better adjusted back then. Also, the source is at the bottom of the link (where they are supposed to be), and nothing really in here strikes me as out I character for society a century ago.

I can confirm that you are an idiot who is too lazy to check for himself. I`d post a source but the ones already here are good and I wouldn`t do your work for you anyway.

Rodin, You`re calling it BS YOU check the source.
But I picked up the gauntlet and throw it back in your face. These rules are posted at the New Hampshire History dot org / edu page. A reasonably reliable source.

Blance Debois couldn`t follow these rules in "Streetcar Named Desire" and was run out of town. Great movie.
