This isn't a PC issue, it's an equality issue. OH NOES they stepped on someones tradition. BFD.


what's the equality issue? Allow boys to go to the father-daughter dance and deal with the ridicule of being the farking douche who went to the father daughter dance. Yay, they can still have their dance and attention whoring boys can attend too! Yippee!

And just a little creepy.

Christ, this.

Dancing is and has always been a sex metaphor.


So you're extending the classification of sex offender to Dads who take dance classes with their daughters? Sorry dude, dance is an art form. There are many types of dances there are some which are anti-sexual and many which are hyper sexual. Leaving 'art' dancing behind, ever been to a school dance? Most farking kids can't waddle in rhythm much less actually throw down moves, that's something I'd get a kick out of doing with my kid.

I don't give a shiat about gender roles, if my daughter wants to take dance with Daddy, then Daddy will swallow his pride and dance. If she wants to take Hap-Ki-Do and kick some ass, I'll go do crunches with her.. Farking parental involvement is what's becoming extinct. In this case, fark the ACLU, there were many compromises that could have been found.

/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.


I do have a question. From your example it appears your in the same boat as most people who dislike the ACLU. That is, your examples have nothing to do with constitutional rights that the ACLU cares about. Would you care to give some actual examples or merely a coherent explanation behind your posititon? I have you marked as intelligent, so I'm honestly curious.

Hey, thank you, seriously, for putting this down so much better than I did.

Yes in fact, my daughter, 15, has been taking dance classes at studio since the age of 12. Many of her instructors are men. At the end of each year, the parents and public are invited to prominent recitals at a very large arena.

I am glad to know BuckTurgidson and stuffy and many others all consider this a form of pedophilia.

Because dancing can't be about art or passion.

Your arguement would be much stronger if many conservative Christian churches hadn't banned dancing among their congregations on the basis that it is a sex metaphor. You're statement is perfectly correct to me as a liberal, but to an old-timey Methodist you're completely wrong. Not your fault, sure, but you've been set up by stupid Christians.

Uuh, no. School banned daughter from participating. School's fault, not mother's. Not to say the ACLU is right though. But it's not wrong either.


of course the aclu is wrong. there is no right to attend the dance. not everything in life is equal or fair and childhood is the best time to learn it.

aclu knows if the threaten to sue the school the school will back down and the aclu gets their name in the national media yet again.

the aclu has replaced the mob in shaking down the neighborhood for "protection money"

There's this whole thing where science is starting to bring back our stereotypes --

Girls like to do social / takingcareofpeople things, boys like things that involve shiat moving around through the air.

It's true.

Without any sort of societally-instilled gender expectations, female toddlers are drawn to playing with dolls, males are drawn to playing with trucks and balls.

Genetic and hormonal differences between males and females are many, and they actually mean something.

So normal males like certain things, and normal females like certain things. Of course, there are outliers - and those outliers shouldn't be castigated or thought of as 'bad' for being different. But they are different. They are abnormal. The problem isn't that we have this false idea that certain things are 'normal' - the problem is giving 'normal' a value of being 'good,' and 'abnormal' a value of being 'bad.'

The problem is legislating or enforcing 'normal' modes of behavior on the outliers.

That all has something to do with this topic. You can make the connections if you're smaht enough.

You know, right before a lot of units deploy, they have Father/Daughter dances, so the soldiers or Marines who are leaving for 7 months to a year can have a night with their daughters, all spiffed up in their dress blues. They're a really nice event. The ACLU really needs to chill out.

If the school is a public school it's an extension of the government, and they have to be "equal and fair" that's the whole point.

if a private dance club doesn't let me in I go to another club. Where's this girl supposed to go? Canada?

I never would. And it's reasonable to point out that the majority of Christians don't oppose dancing. And I definitely wouldn't recommend dancing in Iran or Afghanistan, and that's got nothing to do with Christians. The point of my post was that some folks will regard these events as creepy, and the basis on which they do this is the church/mosque-based espousals which resonate in some communities.

That is, your examples have nothing to do with constitutional rights that the ACLU cares about. Would you care to give some actual examples or merely a coherent explanation behind your posititon? I have you marked as intelligent, so I'm honestly curious.


Here's my belief in a nutshell.

I'm an odd bird politically. I believe and support things all over the map. I am absolutely in favor of equality. Slavery and segregation was bad, as was the KKK. I support gay marriage and rights for everyone.

However.

I think it's gone too far. The right to swing my fist end where the other man's nose begins, right? Why are women allowed a women only gym but men can't have men only gyms without women suing?

I am absolutely all for anyone who is qualified to have what they are entitled to. And they should be able to. But when you take a basic principle like this- a friend of mine was an HR manager. She hires 10 people for a new hire class. If she hired 10 white people because they were the most qualified, she'd get the pants sued off of her. She has to hire at least 3 minorities, even if they don't have the same skills. This isn't ok.

I'm totally fine with all religions having the ability to express the freedom of worship. But I don't think my Jewish neighbor should be able to complain about my Christmas tree when I don't complain about her menorah.

Everyone should be free to do what they want to do without fear of "offending" people. My thing is respect of all people.

I love the movie Crash for this. "So what you're saying is that you're mad because the white waitress didn't pour coffee you didn't order?" "she gave us crappy service because she knows black guys don't tip." "how much did you tip her?" "I wasn't gonna tip for that crappy service!"

What a nightmare.

I'm rambling.

In short, I think people should celebrate their differences and respect everyone else for theirs. Everyone will always be offended by something, so eventually we'll have nothing so no one will be offended.

Stop shoveling it, I can't imagine you believe you're making a serious argument.

You do remind me of a "after divorce marriage counselor" my ex took me too. This born again Christian was there to tell me (Jewish) that I couldn't give my six year old daughter a shoulder ride, because *gasp*, and this is a literal quote:

"Her vagina is too close to your neck"

www4.images.coolspotters.com

So keep peddling that message that daddies dancing with their daughters is about sex.

Yay! You've earned a favorite. How special.

Keep fighting the good fight for progressives with such messaging, but I'll warn you, it's bad news for Obama that you do so.

Last time I said that on Fark, I got hammered.

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.


Yes, because it's well known that in the US, white people are openly discriminated against. In the past, racial segregation was practised. This allowed all the coloured people the prime seats at the back of the bus.

And gays have always had it easy. It's not as if their group has ever been discriminated against by WASPs.

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

Well, the reasons for gay pride parades and black history month is that those segments of society were traditionally discriminated against by the straight, white majority. Would you not get a bit of a buzz from being able to, having been denied the right by social mores, display your identity, openly?

As a Rhode Island native and resident I find this slightly amusing. Amusing in that the state and it's cities and towns get all constitutional minded but heaven help our farking legislature, particularly the Senate from granting the last measure of equality to gay and lesbian people.

mat catastrophe: MoeSzyslak: mat catastrophe: Brostorm: mat catastrophe: Oh, I'm sorry. Let's go on pretending that it's the 1950s and every child has both a mother and a father in a normal American Nuclear Familytm.

so what? I was raised by a single parent. I have no sympathy for this pathetic hyper pc garbage.

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.

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.

Are you trying to make a point here? Because what you're doing is illustrating how not to make a point while thinking you're clever for doing it.


Way to shiat on your own point before even making it. As to my point, making assumptions and questioning motives seems to be liberal's stock in trade these days.

BuckTurgidson: RoyBatty: Because dancing can't be about art or passion.

Yeah. Of course. We're talking about Twyla Tharpe and Gregory Hines here, not about talentless suburban adult men slow-dancing face-to-face with their grade-school daughters.


which isn't weird or creepy unless you are prone to incestuous dreams of pedophilia. So... are you?

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

/Next thing you know Ladies Night will be targeted next.

Ladies night has been illegal in California for a long time.


I bet that it's still alive and kicking at the bearded clam.

I would need two dances. And then the argument over who went first.

/twin daughters

I'm normally in favor of the ACLU, but this is just a travesty.

Wouldn't it have made more sense to say that, in the absence of a father figure, the mother may attend the function with their daughter? And the same case for the mother-son activities. And there ARE mother-son dances, so this really isn't a matter of gender stereotyping as they've claimed.

Stupid. It's just stupid.

Friend, that's a rather personal question, the answer to which I haven't yet even shared with my parole officer.

I know this is insane, but how about if you don't have a dad, then you don't get to participate in the father/daughter dance? Just like if you don't make good grades you don't get on the honor roll, or if you aren't athletic you don't get to be quarterback?
