Jae0o0: My daughters primary school has Donuts with Dad on one day and Muffins with Mom another day. I wonder if someone could sue over that too.


WTH? No bagels with brother, or scones with sister?

Soooooo, if they have Mother-daughter dances someone will biatch and consider them MILFs and potential sexual predators, hints of incest will be tossed about, the Oedipus Complex will be hinted at and someone surely will toss in something about gays and/or Cougars and those dances will be banned.

All it takes these days is ONE big mouth.

Wow, I bet none of these "conservatives" here attacking liberals and Obama actually read the article.

"...the matter was amicably resolved with school officials over four months ago."
"[Parent-teacher organizations] remain free to hold family dances and other events..."

Nothing's changed other then the name.

Seriously, crawl out from under your rock, it's not that scary out here.

skullkrusher: Latinwolf: 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.

Complaining about pc = white man's victim card.

this has nothing to do with race you knew that, Lupo Burro


The majority of people who complain about PC are white males who are attempting to play the victim card. No amount of Libertarian propaganda will dispute that.

mafiageek1980: I'm a Transgendered person and while I agree with WHY the ACLU did what they did, they COULD have went about it a different way instead of it being banned. For example, why don't they just make a "parents-kids" party or something so that EVERYONE is included, no matter what. THEN no one would have a right to biatch about it (ok, maybe the really hard-core fundies that give Christians a bad name), and everyone wins? If they whole point in this is to celebrate families being together, why ban it? We should CELEBRATE families, no matter HOW they are constructed.


Making it a parents-kids dance will then upset the orphans.

In fact looking at the later posts is seems my point had already been confirmed.

marleymaniac: I would LOVE to just live my life, but apparently everything grounded in morality and common sense is frowned upon and taken so god damn personally they feel they have to put an end to such atrocities. Such as Father-Daughter dances. OH GOD THE HORROR. Mother-Son baseball games, FOR SHAME! When the hell are they going to fight the PURE EVIL OF SEGREGATED BATHROOMS! FOR farkS SAKE!..


The issue for me is that they're spending school funds on school activities that not all students can participate in.

Like I stated in my post: Just cuz my crazy-peta-hating-Vegan-ass thinks not eating meat/dairy is normal doesn't mean I expect you to think the same. It's nuts but I have to remind people that I am completely COOL if you eat a cheeseburger in front of me. It's your choice, we are all different, let's party-on man!

It's farking creepy.

Worldwalker: Also, the ACLU merely sent the school district a letter which pointed out that the exclusion of the child was in violation of state law. The district's attorneys looked at the state law and they were the ones who said "Y'know, they're right. There's a law against this." It's not the ACLU, nor even the mother of the child who was prohibited from going to the dance, but the Rhode Island state law that said this was illegal.


Except no one actually read or understood the article, as demonstrated by all the posters mentioning how the ACLU banned the dance.

The ACLU doesn't have the power to just go ban something, nor did they even ask for the school to do so.

kiwimoogle84: jaylectricity: crispyone: Funny how none of you fartard liberals get upset about the schools in OR with drum bands with no whites allowed.

Who wants to listen to some honkey play the drums?

Google Mike Portnoy, Danny Carey and Joey Jordison.

Three white guys who wail on drums.

You're welcome.


Ummm... there's a lot of white drummers. Phil Collins (a white guy) whose name you will recognize, Keith Moon (a white guy) from The Who, Steven Adler (a white guy) of Guns N' Roses fame.
Don't forget Levon Helm (a white guy) who became famous as a singing drummer. Face it CrispyOne, HONKEYS CAN DRUM!

/R.I.P. Levon. you were one of the greats.

stonicus:
School is compulsory, a hair style contest isn't. Now, if somehow the town you lived in ponied up tax money to host the contest and then denied you entry into it, then yeah, you have a complaint.

That changes absolutely nothing to the fact that I would be a gigantic donkeyhole to file a complain, ponies or not.
I need legs to run. If I don't have legs then I'll use prosthesis. If I don't have prosthesis and I want to enter a 100m race, what do you think is gonna happen?

Anyway bravo for the pun.
