Father-daughter dances and mother-son ballgames -- those cherished hallmarks of Americana -- have been banned in a Rhode Island school district after they were targeted by the American Civil Liberties Union.There is a culture war against the Ozzie and Harriet family. The single moms, gays, atheist lawyers, etc. are winning.
The ACLU, the self-proclaimed guardian of the nation's liberty, says such events violate the state's gender-discrimination law. The organization challenged their existence following a complaint from a single mom who said her daughter was prevented from attending a father-daughter dance in the Cranston Public Schools district. ...
For its part, the ACLU scoffed at the uproar, calling the change "old news" and defending its legal position in a statement laced with a touch of snark. Here it is, in part:
"... the school district recognized that in the 21st Century, public schools have no business fostering the notion that girls prefer to go to formal dances while boys prefer baseball games.
"This type of gender stereotyping only perpetuates outdated notions of 'girl' and 'boy' activities and is contrary to federal law.
"[Parent-teacher organizations] remain free to hold family dances and other events, but the time has long since passed for public school resources to encourage stereotyping from the days of Ozzie and Harriet.
Even the New Normal gay couple is too much like Ozzie and Harriet for some. That is the TV show about a gay couple where one man wears the pants and the other has uncontrollable urges to go shopping for baby clothes. The polyamorous bisexuals feel left out.
The San Fran. paper reports:
If one Pride celebration isn't enough for you, pack up your party hat and come to Berkeley.The problem here is that the gay lobby has based their whole political strategy on convincing everyone that being gay is innate and not a choice. Their dirty little secret is that half of them are really bisexuals who insist that there preference is a choice.
Berkeley on Tuesday could become what appears to be the first city in the country to proclaim a Bisexual Pride Day, separate from the LGBT events that light up the calendar every June across the globe. ...
Bisexuals have complained for years that they're shunned by the LGBT mainstream, that they're considered fence-sitters or that they're not a legitimate part of the gay movement because they may occasionally be in relationships with the opposite sex.
"They think we have 'straight privilege,' and we hide in that," said Martin Rawlings-Fein, a director of the Bay Area Bisexual Network, a nonprofit educational and cultural group. "We get pushed to the side in the LGBT community and told we don't exist, that we're actually gay or lesbian and just not totally 'out.' "
In reality, more than 50 percent of the LGBT community considers itself bisexual to some degree, and sexuality for most people falls on a spectrum, Rawlings-Fein and others said.
Another myth is that bisexuals are polyamorous, he said. Just like people in any group, bisexuals can date many people or be in long-term monogamous relationships, he said.
Berkeley might seem very broadminded to have all these Pride celebrations, but they are not. They just canned their black school superintendent because they discovered that he once supported California Prop. 8, affirming marriage being between a man and a woman. Isn't he entitled to have his own personal views? He especially ought to be able to have a mainstream view that was in agreement with both the Republican and Democrat leaders at the time, including B. Obama and H. Clinton. I guess not. Everyone must be dedicated to destroying the Ozzie and Harriet family.
