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.

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.

Shoulda, Woulda - Ehhh: Thoughts on the Ending to the 2021 Yankees Season

I've waited to write this post. After all, it's been a tremendously emotional season...well, for the fan base that is.  For me, everything about this year's Yankees playoff run - or exit - was expected. This team, was as complex and complicated of a team as we've seen in a long time. Bad? No, I wouldn't say that. And I know that may trigger some in the fan base - but bad teams just don't make the playoffs in baseball. However, this team was incredibly flawed - to a glaring fault. Rooted deep, deep, deep in a philosophy that currently drives the organization and has now proven to be fruitless - and even more so year after year.  So no, I never expected this team to do much other than possibly surprise me with a deep playoff run. We've seen glimpses of this team's conflicting identity by running the bases, moving runners, getting timely hits, and looking somewhat threatening to the rest of the league. And yet, we've seen this team play terrible defense

The Pondering 10 - Yankees Fandom Annoyance

I'm a New York Yankees fan. If you haven't gotten that already from this blog, then the surprise declaration gives you a small set up for this latest Pondering 10 post. Yes, the Yankees are having a challenging year, and there are so many discussions and breakdowns that can be had that are productive, beneficial, and enlightening to why this season is unfolding the way it is.  You know what is not helpful? Yankee fans antics. Ironic, huh? I've long since realized that I'm associated with this fan base than can be overbearing and at times, super annoying. However, none more so than this year. Listening to sports radio, Yankees Twitter, and talking-head television has made that more clear than ever before.  With that said, here is my Pondering 10 on my Yankees Fandom Annoyance:
