No more mother-son dances, either, so some good came of this.

ACLU kinda does have a point. Stupid as it may be, it is consistent with civil rights ideology.

Let's be clear...this is at a school. Nobody is stopping anybody from holding a private father/daughter anything.

Hell, it's Rhode Island, if your daughter is old enough you can sell her services so long as it's behind closed doors.

I think that particular loophole was closed within the past few years, but I am lazy and don't feel like looking it up to make sure.

People participate in these types of events? I would never have wanted to go to a dance with my parents when I was a kid.

What does that have to do with anything?

"Oh, I'm sorry. Let's go on pretending that some families aren't smarter than others, or more talented, or stronger, or more coordinated, so it's time for everyone to start wearing Diana Moon Glampers's mental handicap boxes."

And if a single mother or any mother wanted to dance with her daughter at a father daughter dance, do you think anyone would care?

Typical. Woman can't keep a husband and decides to ruin everyone else's fun. Congratulations.

When I was in grade school we had a big party at some time (I think it was 6th grade). The dj did a father-daughter and mother-son dance at the same time.

PLEASE tell me the school is just overreacting and the ACLU just asked that she be allowed to attend with her daughter or something like that.

Same here. No dad in the picture, but I never gave a shiat about father/son activities at shool.
 
2012-09-18 10:15:47 PM
I must of missed the part in civics were dance attendance was a fundamental civil right.

I can't join any Woman's groups as I am not a woman...should we outlaw this too? Does the ACLU have any REAL issue to look into? I know the stupid libitards are screaming about voting rights, maybe they could go look into that for a while and let the rest of us enjoy ourselves.

The ACLU does more to discredit themselves and dig a whole for all the good work they may have done in the past.

My daughter has no Grandparents for "Grandparents day" at school perhaps that is age discrimination. Or maybe I go instead as a special guest and we all go about our lives without lawsuits.

This is not hyper PC garbage:

public schools have no business fostering the notion that girls prefer to go to formal dances while boys prefer baseball games.

Do you also think that insisting women be able to drive or have their own checking account is also hyper PC garbage?
 
2012-09-18 10:16:11 PM
Father-daughter dances are a cute idea, and I'm sure the families who participated had fun.

If the school is genuinely unwilling or unable to make occasional exceptions ("Oh, you don't have a dad? No dance for you, you bastard") then they shouldn't keep doing it. If they'd said, "Meh, okay, a few single moms dancing with their daughters won't hurt," then they wouldn't have dug their own grave quite so efficiently.

Non sequitur. Weak attack, try harder net time. I have no issues with a mother/son dance as well. I even have no problem with this single mom going to the father daughter dance, who the hell is going to tell her no? Our national policy should not e be "I have the right to never be offended no matter how ridiculous my demands are"

This is hyper PC garbage and discredits the aclu

I'm sure you're trolling, but honestly? Why couldn't they allow the mom to attend the dance with the daughter? Why attack something someone else gets when you can't have it? RGG. Take an uncle to the dance or something. Don't halt a time honored tradition because one single person went boohoo.

Or they can bring their grandfather. Or their uncle. Or their moms new boyfriend. Or ANYONE!! I can't see a school not making an exception for girls without a dad.

But this sounds more like a shrew with an absent ex who would rather ruin things for everyone else.

Good. This is just a slippery slope. What's next, father-horse dances? cat-son dances? I won't have any of it. Unless they start up a snake-Salma Hayek dance. Did anyone see From Dusk Til Dawn? It wasn't great, but not terrible. Parts of it were fun. If you can catch it on TV give it a watch.

One of these days you may need their help. I hope they refuse you.

... a complaint from a single mom who said her daughter was prevented from attending a father-daughter dance in the Cranston Public Schools district

Prevented = Discrimination

This is why we can't have nice things people. Let a kid from a single-parent family bring somebody else, or go with another family. Let a gay kid have a prom date. Let a farking school assembly go by where you don't have to stick your religious dick in the mashed potatoes.
