- Teacher Bans LEGOs for Gender Bias
Kindergarten boys in a Washington classroom were banned from playing with LEGOs, because their teacher found them gender biased. The Bainbridge Island teacher found it troubling that girls in her class were not interested in the toys, so barred the boys from them.
Ed: So, the boys really went for those My Little Ponies?
- Yoga classes have been banned at a Canadian university because of “cultural genocide… due to colonialism and western supremacy” after complaints from politically correct students.
So-called cultural appropriation is when a “dominant” culture supposedly usurps or inappropriately borrows from or mixes with an “oppressed” minority culture.
Ed: …tomorrow we picket Panda’s
- BlackLivesMatter Protest Bans Reporters, Unless They ‘Articulate Their Solidarity’
Reporters were banned from a Smith College sit-in supporting the #BlackLivesMatter protesters at the University of Missouri… unless they “articulate their solidarity” with their movement, that is.
“We are asking that any journalists or press that cover our story participate and articulate their solidarity with black students and students of color,” a protest leader told Newsberry. “By taking a neutral stance, journalists and media are being complacent in our fight.”
Stacey Schmeidel, Smith College director of media relations, said the college supported the activists’ decision. “It’s a student event, and we respect their right to do that, although it poses problems for the traditional media,”she said.
Ed: Just let us write the story for you.
- Xbox online community bans kid for typing the name of his town in his application.
His offense? Filling out his Xbox Live profile. You see, Mr. Moore lives in West Virginia. More specifically, in FORT GAY, West Virginia. As Microsoft says, the word “gay” is always offensive. Fort Gay Mayor, David Thompson, tried to intervene, but was told that the city’s name didn’t matter; the word “gay” was inappropriate in any context.
Ed: Everybody sing –
When you’re with the Flintstones
Have a yabba dabba-do time
A dabba-do time
We’ll have a gay old time!
- Santa Claus’s traditional catch phrase censored
Santa Clauses in Sydney, Australia, were forced to revolt for the right to say “Ho Ho Ho”, the traditional laugh of jolly old St. Nick. It turns out that their employer, the recruitment firm Westaff (that supplies hundreds of Santas across Australia), told all trainees that “ho ho ho” could frighten children and be derogatory to women. Why? Because it was too close to the American (not Australian, mind you) slang for prostitute. Instead, the Santas were instructed to lower their voices and say “Ha ha ha”.
Ed: Not funny
- Old Glory banished
Administrators at a California high school sent five students home after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. Assistant Principal, Miguel Rodriguez, asked two of the five teens to remove their American flag bandanas. The boys complied, but were still taken to the principal’s office for a chat. One of the boys told NBC “They said we could wear it on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it’s supposed to be their holiday, so we were not allowed to wear it.”
Ed: Does that mean they have to speak English for 364 days?
- Greenpeace saves starving Africans from GMO food.
The fear of genetically modified (GM) crops, whipped up by environmentalist hysteria in Europe and America, has prompted many African countries to ban ALL U.S. food aid because it may contain GM corn. There are no restrictions on these foods in industrialized nations, yet people too poor to buy their next meal are denied the same foods even when it’s free. They could realistically starve without it, yet Greenpeace prides itself on stopping shipments of GMO food to starving people.
Ed: Ironically this forced the starving people of Angola to eat whales
- MSNBC’s poster boy for “unfairly” targeted Muslims on no-fly list arrested for being member of ISIS.
Two years ago MSNBC said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”
A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.
Ed: Al Qaeda and ISIS are being discriminated against to this day
- CU-Boulder Anti-Racism Rally Canceled Because Organizers Are White
An anti-racism rally planned at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to show solidarity with University of Missouri black activists was cancelled because the protest organizers are white.
The rally was killed under pressure from the CU’s Black Student Alliance and it’s president, Ms. Ferribee.
The white students who wanted to protest racism had to apologize to black students, but were called racists anyway by Ms. Ferribee, “That’s a slap in the face and that’s practicing racism, whether they want to believe it or not,” Ferribee said. “They used their white privilege and oppressed voices and stifled voices that are experiencing this every day.”
Ed: Social Justice Warriors eating there own…Bon Apetit!
- DOE issued a document last year that offered additional guidance on the decades-old law: “Title IX’s sex discrimination prohibition extends to claims of discrimination based on gender identity.”
This ruling allowed California to pass a law stipulating that students must be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school activities—like bathroom use and sports-team participation—based on the gender with which they identify, regardless of the sex listed for them in official records. So, not only can an individual “born as a male” compete with your daughter for a starting position on her team, but she will have to shower with him as well.
Many school jurisdictions have made similar policy rulings to comply with the federal dictate, but one created a problem by inadvertently using the word “he” and “his” to enumerate the rights of a transgender student. This has led to push for new policies probiting the teaching of gender specific pronouns like “she,” “her,” “he,” and “his” in English and grammar curiculae.
Ed: I was born too soon to collect my full scholarship for field hockey.
