Father–Daughter Dances Being Outlawed

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 21, 2012

After you think that you have thought you have seen it all, take another look.  Political correctness has been taken to a new level in Rhode Island where the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) successfully stopped age-old traditions, the father daughter school dance and another “gender-based” event the mother–son baseball game.

The ACLU filed a complaint on behalf of a mother who didn’t like the fact that her daughter could not attend a school dance because she did not have a willing father to accompany her.  According to the mother and ACLU, the child would feel “left out” of the dance.  Yikes!  Heaven forbid that we should blame the mother for her poor choice of a father for the child.

After receiving the ACLU’s complaint, school district superintendent Judith Lundsten halted the events stating: “I acknowledge that many of these events have long traditions and for many parents, these types of gender-based events are not an issue.  However, this is a public school system and under no circumstances should be isolating any child from full participation in school activities and events based on gender.  Please be all-inclusive when planning your events.”

As political correctness gains in ever stronger foothold in American society, it places at risk the very guarantees of freedom and independence that our founders attempted to guarantee in the US Constitution.
