Which is Stupider, Government or Public Education?

The Oklahoma legislature is considering a bill which, if enacted into law, is supposed to combat school bullying ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3368179/Oklahoma-proposes-law-end-bullying-schools-FINING-students-parents-50-instead-suspended.html ) by giving classroom teachers the authority to fine bullies and their parents.

The way they will get rid of bullying is with more bullying.

No one in Oklahoma has bothered to define “bullying,” which they now propose to make punishable. (“Community service,” by the way, a nice name for forced labor, is one of the punishments that could be handed out. Another punishment is “counseling.” Notice how things that once had positive connotations are now punishments.) Perhaps some questions are in order.

Is it bullying when one atheist can demand that the whole community cancel its Christmas festivities?

Is it bullying when the schmendrick from the ACLU shows up at the school board meeting and vows they’ll “bankrupt this town” if anything but Evolution is taught in science classes?

Is it bullying when Christian children are forced to read homosexual fairy tales and create Kwanzaaaa cards in art class?

Is it bullying when all the children are told they’d better believe in Man-Made Global Warming, or else?

Is it bullying when white students are ordered to “check your white privilege” and “defer to minority students”?

Oh, I see! It’s only “bullying” when some non-progressive does it! For libs and their Cherished Minorities, it’s open season on everybody else.

And so once again Big Government and Big Education compete to see which of them can be the first to change, by coercion, some fundamental aspect of human nature.

Bullying isn’t bullying when they bully you for your own good.

Students Protest Boy Using Girls’ Locker Room

Apparently this easy-to-read sign does not apply to you if you are a boy who insists he is a girl. That doesn’t make you a girl. It just makes you a ninny.

So what have we learned since September 11, 2001?

Well, we’ve learned this.

Students walked out of Hillsboro High School, Missouri, recently to protest the school board’s decision to allow a 17-year-old boy to use the girls’ locker room because he says he is a girl ( http://www.worldmag.com/2015/09/missouri_students_protest_over_boy_allowed_in_girls_locker_room ). Three school board members have resigned in protest over that decision.

The school had even provided a special “gender-neutral” (ugh) locker room for this character, but that wasn’t good enough. Nope, he wants to use the girls’ locker room, with the girls in it, because he says he’s a girl, too.

Note this fact of elementary biology: Every cell in this  boy’s body, no matter what he says, no matter what he does, remains unalterably male because it contains a Y-chromosome.

We have seen this pattern before. A whole townful of Christians loses its annual Christmas parade because a single atheist objects. You can’t bow your head and say grace in a public cafeteria because a single misanthrope might sue whoever owns the cafeteria. And so on.

Let’s try this. An enterprising lad named William says he is now a cat, not a boy, and therefore is no longer required to go to school. He has renamed himself Fluffy. “Meow,” he says.

Does that make him a cat? Or just an idiot?

So now a whole high school-ful of girls can’t get changed in privacy because some boy who says he’s a girl demands to use their locker room. And the majority of the school board knuckled under.

No wonder ISIS thinks they will inevitably conquer us.
