Idiot Mom Proves Society's Lack of Accountability

I recently read a story that got me so worked up I had to make my way to a blank page here on the DP to begin punching the keys to vent. The story is in regards to a bisexual Queens student who was sent home from school for wearing a "I enjoy vagina" T-Shirt. Yes, you read that correctly. 

The story can be found here

What really drives me up a wall is the fact that after being sent home for refusing to change the shirt, her mother has now come to her defense and has claimed that her daughter's first amendment rights were violated. 

Yes, I hope you are rolling your eyes. Because I just did after typing that, even after reading it once before.

The mother (who I refuse to give credence to here on the DP) is claiming they are also discriminating against her bisexual daughter. She goes on to say, "She wore a shirt the other day that says 'I'm the B---h From Down the Block'. She can wear whatever she wants. You can't stop somebody from being who they are. My daughter is whoever she wants to be" 

Wow. 

What a clown...

Let's disregard the fact that schools have dress codes, and it is a place for learning, not "expressing" yourself. 

Let's disregard the latest fad of if something is even slightly or remotely tied to anything of sexual preference, or dare I say related to the Gay community, it suddenly becomes a class action lawsuit or discrimination accusation.

Or hey, let's simply disregard the idea that this girl thinks it is cool to actually wear a shirt like that, and honestly have some type of pride or class for herself. 

[sideblog: Can you imagine if a boy wore that shirt? He'd be a goner the next day] 

My problem is with this idiot mother who instead of disciplining her child and explaining to her the rules and regulations, and even, heck, teach her some self-respect, is defending this type of garbage claim! 

[sideblog: Yes, I think we have ourselves a candidate for DP Idiot of the Year]

Is this stupid shirt, which is not even funny in any way, and pretty much makes you look foolish, worth having your name synonymous to this story, and just a Google search away for college recruits and future employers to view? 

Accountability. 

It's a word quickly vanishing from our society. 

When are parents going to stop attempting to be their child's friend, and start being their parent? 

When are we going to stop looking for every damn way to find attention? 

When are we going to stop pointing fingers at everyone else when we are clearly in the wrong? 

And we wonder why our education system is in shambles? 

It's because we're so busy with hearings on T-shirts and dealing with poor parents like this idiot mom, that education takes a backseat in our schools.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/22/22

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/10/22

3 Up 1. Ketanji Brown Jackson - The new Supreme Court Justice is a win for black and brown girls everywhere. Representation matters.  2. Women's College Basketball Ratings - I'm giving the women's tournament its due as it garnered the highest television ratings ever for the national championship game in eighteen years. And that was head-to-head with the Grammys! Spare me the "women's sports don't draw" tired narrative. Invest in women's sports, period.  3. Baseball Returns - Sure, the sport bothered fans over the winter with its ugly and insulting labor spat. However, it's back, and that's cool.  3 Down 1. Ukraine Images - Unfortunately, I had to put the ongoing acts in Ukraine back in the tops spot. Have you seen some of the images coming out of the country? For me, it was the image of parents writing children's information (i.e. names, details of eating habits, etc...) on their backs - on their backs! - in anticipation of being separated

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Amateur (2018)

What is it about? The recruiting and exploitation of a teenage basketball phenom expose the immoral undercurrent world of amateur sports and business.  Who is in it?  Michael Rainey Jr. - Terron Forte Jr.  Brian White - Vince Josh Charles - Coach Gaines

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/27/22

3 Up 1. Volodymyr Zelensky - The President of Ukraine delivered a speech this week that certainly went viral not just for his take as the current war on Ukraine ensues, but for his honesty and courage throughout it.  2. Kentaji Brown Jackson - In a world on fire, here at home President Biden nominated Jackson, who becomes the first black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation. That's so cool. I'm happier for the tons of little girls of color who can dream of being a Supreme Court Judge, and now believe it.
