why don’t we ban testosterone while we’re at it?

They banned tag long ago here in the People's Democratic Republic of Montgomery County, Maryland. The took out a lot of the pleasant playground equipment in the local grammar school, even though it was all harmless and the playground surface was some sort of soft, springy material like a mattress, so falls wouldn't result in scraped knees.

At the local middle school, the new rule is no touching of any kind. You can't pat a buddy on the back for a job well done, hold a girl's hand, hug someone, shake hands, take someone's arm to help him, examine someone's new ring by taking her hand, nothing, nada. Do, and you get detention; do it twice, and you're suspended. For touching.

Thank God there are no real problems in our school system--no gangs, drugs, or performance deficits--so school administrators have time to worry about such things. < /s>

Read the story. Freep the poll! (at the bottom of the home page. http://www.gazette.com )
the comments on the article are pretty funny, too!
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!***
FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list.
And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin’, if I miss them.
(looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

generally, parents and children didn’t fuss about the new rules

This why freedom is so rare in the history of the world and why it never lasts: people don't want to be free, they want to be taken care of.

Why do all these crazy things seem to happen in Colorado? It seems second only to California in terms of sheer PC lunancy

My only surprise was that they still were allowed to play tag. Thought it was already banned.

In 2005, two elementaries in Falcon School District 49 adopted a structured recess program, Trouble-Free Playground, that did away with chasing games in favor of other activities that cut down on physical contact...

So much for the BS socialization argument that socialists use against us home-schoolers.

Let’s all make SURE none of these kids grow up with the ability to deal with conflicts cause we ALL KNOW that in the adult world, everyone is at peace with one another....
