Is political correctness getting out of hand? These parents think so. Check out these comments!
A Staten Island elementary school, PS 65, has canceled its annual father-daughter dance because of new guidelines regarding gender handed down from the Department of Education.
The DOE ordered schools to “eliminate” any “gender-based” practices like the dance in a March 2017 policy update unless they serve a “clear” educational purpose.
The PS 65 shindig, set for Feb. 9, was abruptly postponed until next month after the school’s PTA realized the dance would run afoul of the rules.
“Until we understand what we are legally permitted to do, we need to table this event,” PTA president Toni Bennett wrote to a private school-parents group on Facebook.
The principal attempted to explain the situation but ended up just causing more confusion.
Principal Sophie Scamardella instructed the PTA to change the event “to ensure all students and families were welcome to attend,” DOE spokeswoman Miranda Barbot said.
“We have clear guidelines in place that require school-related events to be inclusive of all students,” Barbot said.
Still, while the PTA president was pointing to gender policies, the principal announced in a confusing letter to befuddled parents on Wednesday that the dance was postponed because Bennett “wanted to host it at a bigger venue.”
“The DOE . . . has strict guidelines about how we present information,” Scamardella wrote. “They have a ‘gender neutral’ policy that must be adhered to at all times.”
Oh, by the way, the same school held a mother-son bowling event last year.
This is the problem right here:
WOW❗️I didn’t know there were so many genders⁉️ They never taught me this in school 👀💀. I would make a video about this but I honestly can’t pronounce half of these genders. Which one you do identity with ? pic.twitter.com/TcNV8NYDiP

Is the school concerned that people will feel excluded from a ‘Daddy-Daughter’ dance?
Parents were outspoken about their disappointment and the caving to the PC culture.
It’s upset a lot of families.
“They’re trying to take away everything that everybody grew up on and has come to know and I don’t think it’s fair or right,” said Matthew West, a 32-year-old father of two daughters at the school, Lily and Willow. “They should leave it the way it was — father-daughter, mother-son.”
Of PC culture, he said, “I hate it . . . People are just becoming too scared to talk.”
“It’s not fair at all,” said Jose Garcia, 37, who’s gone to the past two dances with his 9-year-old daughter, Jolene. “I have nothing against no one but I don’t think that it should affect the school, or the kids for that matter.”
A disappointed Jolene said, “They had a dance party. We got to wear dresses and hang out with our friends.”
“All this gender crap needs to just stop,” said mom Akaia Cameron, who added that her third-grader had a “great time” with dad last year.
Other schools just ignored the new politically correct regulations.
PS 30, also on Staten Island, has already planned a pricey dance “to celebrate your little girl and the father figure in her life,” according to a flyer for the April 14 event. Tickets for couples cost $100.
PS 232 Lindenwood, in Queens, had a “Daddy Daughter Dance” on Thursday night, according to a school calendar. PS 83 in The Bronx plans a “Father/Daughter Dance” on June 6, as well as a May 19 “Mother and Son Field Day” and a “Mother/Daughter Spa Night” on April 27.

So much for ‘equality’ if some schools have the dance that celebrates little girls and their dads and some don’t.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
