New York City has been really gender confused over the past year (see In NYC You Could be Fined for ‘Misgendering’ Someone. MASSIVE Fines… and In NYC, Using Biological Pronouns for Transgenders is Now Illegal…). So confused, in fact, a school district from the Rugged Lands of Shaolin (aka Staten Island) wasn’t sure if they were still allowed to hold a father-daughter dance.
Now with deBlasio at the helm, no one knows who is a father and who is a daughter anymore I guess.
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.
Some parents were hopping mad at what they saw as political correctness intruding on a quaint tradition, now in its third year.
“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.”
I’m failing to see what’s confusing. A father shows up with his daughter. They dance. Everyone has a good time. Or, at least had a good time. Them were the olden days. The kind of of era leftists now find problematic and racist.
Mind you, the school had a mother-son bowling event last year without an issue. In fact, it seems as though nobody had an issue with this dance. Save for the stuck-up leftist douchelords, trying to maintain their social justice bona fides.
So, because a hypothetical tranny somewhere might have his/her/xe’s undergarments in a twist over a gender-specific dance, schools can no longer celebrate fathers and daughters. At an event little girls actually look forward to. Way to be pro-woman, New York City.
Speaking of mothers and sons:
