Schools Ban Having a Best Friend. Because it's not Inclusive Enough...
Nobody is more ban-crazy than a shameless leftist. If you can think of something good in the world? I can show you a leftist who wants to wrench it from your hands and kill it with fire. Consider it the worst magic trick in the history of ever. Some pretty odd things have become no bueno thanks to political correctness. But of all the things progressives could think of banning next, they chose... friendship?!
...When news broke that Prince George, the eldest son of Prince William and Duchess Kate, goes to a school that bans best friends — well, there was only one thing to do.
Our schools began to ban best friends, too. Most parents know that schools have been doing this informally for some time, but psychologist Barbara Greenberg caused a stir with a recent piece in US News & World Report, noting that she sees a trend of American schools implementing an actual ban.
Greenberg approves of the move because she is concerned by what she calls the “emotional distress” of a kid losing the status of best friend or the “inherently exclusionary” nature of best-friendship itself. Greenberg writes that “child after child comes to my therapy office distressed when their best friend has now given someone else this coveted title.”
So, now having a BFF is verboten? Because it's not inclusive enough?
Wow. This nosy micromanaging is going to some real extremes, isn't it? Now you're not even allowed to choose your acquaintances. Next they'll be telling straight guys they're required to get frisky with trannies. Oops, too late (read ‘Transwoman’ Says You’re ‘Cis-Sexist’ For NOT Having Sex With Him. The Internet Attacks…).
This is what happens when you let leftism go unchecked. They start meddling. Especially with the younglings' minds. Before you know it, your kiddo ceases to be that adorable little individual. Just like in The Thing, they're chewed up and replaced. But this time with a worse monster than Hollywood could dream up: a blue-haired, asexual genderqueer communist who identifies as a golden retriever. My condolences.
