You only call it PC because you don't agree with it.

And, like most conservatives, you make the grossly arrogant assumption that your personal experiences supersede all other personal experiences.


Swing and a miss. Liberal from New Jersey here. Being a liberal should not mean blind allegiance to PC nonsense from the ACLU.

That settles it...I'm walking into a "Curves" tomorrow with my son and we are both demanding a membership!

I Know, I know farktards..."Curves is a private business and can allow membership to whomever it wants". Funny how none of you fartard liberals get upset about the schools in OR with drum bands with no whites allowed.

Those things are insanely awkward and awful. I had one at my high school and we all "strongly encouraged" to attend. My dad hated them too. We went twice, stayed twenty minutes or so, ate bad food and left.

This is kind of a relic of the nuclear family where Dad works as the sole breadwinner and doesn't really help co-parent, so you have to create this artificial time together. Good riddance.

Farklee: Why am I not surprised that the noobs on this page defending the ACLU have 'TFer' logos next to their names? Not to sound all politically, but I can't stand the ultra-lib slant some of these arrogant idiots constantly display on here.

/this is my opinion. you are allowed to disagree. that is your right.


Hey I'm TF and I'm incredibly anti ACLU.

At some point when the given population of any group HAD to be a certain percentage X and X and Y, jobs and opportunities were being given to people not because they were qualified, but because of the color of their skin. It's white supremacy backwards.

Can't a greeter in Walmart wish someone merry Christmas without that person suing? If someone wished me happy Kwanzaa I wouldn't be aghast and in shock. Jesus Christ.

By ensuring EVERYONE has freedoms, now no one does.

Thanks, ACLU.

Yeah, aren't you tired of all these racist conservatives with all their racist assumptions about people they know nothing about? I sure am. Who cares what those racists think or have to say anyways? I just can't believe they can find the time to biatch about the ACLU what with all gay bashing they must be constantly engaged in.

louiedog: 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.


love that cheezy flick. quentin gets punched smack in the face - win. salma is so smoking hot she could make a catholic priest forget all about little boys - win. clooney is a maniac with neck tattoos - win. and the guy with the crotch pistol, that shiat is hilarious.

The ACLU might seem like jackasses in this context, but they would do exactly the same for mother-son dances as well.

Just call it a parent-child dance, no self-respecting bay would be caught infront of his schoolmates dancing with his mother.

Pretty much this. The slippery slope is already started though, but we've become knee jerk PC douches, or victims. Nobody just wants to cough it up to "well that sucks, maybe next time."

All it does is single her out for how utterly pathetic her life must be; and chances are she's just pissed that she can't get a guy. And with that victim mentality and probably a raging case of feminism, I'm shocked.

Well at least there's now a great hole-in-the-wall Asian Fusion restaurant next door; if you're in Austin TX check out "Yummi".

So all of the true injustice in this country have been eradicated so now the ACLU can focus on non-consequential bullshiat harmless fun? How about focusing on the wrongfully imprisoned, racial inequality, brow beating the government into actually jailing wall street fat cats that have been breaking laws and stealing from the poor and widening the gap between rich and poor. I guess you're right a father and daughter having a nice memorable evening is the true injustice. Way to take a stand.

Absolutely, but the point of America was that we can have creepy perverse things like this. Hell the ACLU defends NAMBLA---there's gender discrimination right there. They refused my right to join because I wanted to be a perv with a girl! Or they refused my right to join as a Transgendered Man who loves boys...

I can go on, but you get the point.

What can I say? I live on the edge.

There is no hetero parade. There is no white history month. If I wish the wrong person merry Christmas I'll get sued. Yet there's a black history month and gay pride parade.

Not saying that's wrong. But we've gone past equality, here.

Father-daughter ballroom dances and mother-son baseball games? Nobody has a problem with this? Really? Girls aren't allowed to go to the baseball game, and boys aren't allowed to go to the dance? You're all cool with this? OK then.

The ACLU has sued several times...for your right to say "Merry Christmas". They fought in favor of being able to say it, not against. The government shouldn't be in the religion business, whether it's making you say "Merry Christmas" or forbidding you to do so.

If you had a daughter, you would know it's not creepy. Father-daughter's do dates and other things together. It creates a great-bond.

Of course there are pedos out there, but the vast majority of dad's would prefer the f/d dance versus some young slob clawing on her.
