Cancelling Halloween over 3 Children in a Boston-area school. Seriously, this is some stupid shit. I'm so sick and fucking tired of hearing about how this offends one or two people (in this case, 3 children's families) and everyone is so quick to bow down to them. Complete bullshit.
If I were the principal of this school and some parent threatened me by holding their children out of school, I would have said, "Fine. But this will go down as an unexcused absence." I wouldn't have cancelled anything.
This country is becoming too fucking PC. Seriously, what is next? No days off because of Christmas because it is a Christian holiday? What about Martin Luther King Day? George Washington's birthday? Fuck! Everyone can take offense to something. You know what I say to that? Boo Fucking Hoo!
Here is the story that prompted this.
