Oh my, a school in Rhode Island had the audacity to continue their tradition of hosting an annual father-daughter dance knowing full well that doing so might exclude those girls living in alternative settings. But have no fear, for the ACLU is here, ready, willing, and able to bash those bullies with a threatening letter using what seems to be their bottomless coffers of cash to enforce the cultural mandates that would proscribe the outrageous public flaunting of families with fathers.
In the very progressive New England state of Rhode Island, the liberal sob sisters (and in the name of diversity and fairness and justice for all, I must also include the liberal sob brothers and the liberal sob transgendered sisters and the liberal sob transgendered brothers and of course those liberal questioning sob sisters and those liberal questioning sob brothers) are on the move and out in force making sure that no little kiddie ever has to face that evil demon of alternative family diversity known as Daddy.
In a move that has taken some parents by surprise, the school department has announced that it is banning traditional “father-daughter” and “mother-son” activities, saying they violate state law.
Supt. Judith Lundsten said the move was triggered by a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of a single mom who had complained that her daughter had not been able to attend her father-daughter dance.
Gee, apparently this single mom could not offer her daughter a paternal stand-in—no uncle, no brother, no cousin, no granddad, no friend, no male adult of any make or model who could have escorted her daughter to the dance. How very sad.
And of course, the rest of the schoolchildren must be made to hide their good fortune, for the only suspect alternative abode these days is the one modeling a Mom and Dad.
