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 - 12/11/22

3 Up 1. Protection of Same-Sex Marriage - Well, what do you know? Our elected officials CAN work together to get important policies completed that accurately and democratically represent the people. Cynicism aside, it's good to see this bill get passed. Imagine the huge step back that this would have been. 2. Britney Griner Home - I honestly don't care about the politics around this story. Griner needed to come home. And I'm glad she finally is.  3. Impact Wrestling Main Event - Everything that was "Speedball" Mike Bailey vs. "The Walking Weapon" Josh Alexander on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling was what makes pro wrestling so great. Both guys put on a classic that lasted almost an hour, and it was one of the best matches I've enjoyed in a long time. Kudos to both men.  3 Down 1. Grant Wahl - It's the kind of story that is super emotional for the following reasons: 1) Wahl was the premiere journalist in the soccer real; 2) Wahl was be

3 Up 1. Bad Bunny - Congratulations (and major breakthrough props) are in order for Bad Bunny who made history with the first Spanish-Language Album of the Year nomination. The dude has been crushing it with major cross-over appeal - and yes, he's a helluva wrestler.  2. Taylor Swift - This could be a down because of the entire Ticketmaster ordeal, but Swift gets the "Up" solely because only she can break Ticketmaster like this. The star power continues to be amazing.  3. FIFA World Cup - Sure, there is plenty of negatives to get into here, but the event itself is amazing. I'm ready to get caught up in it all.  3 Down 1. Iran Protestors - The nation is in political unrest and many protesters being caught are being sentenced to harsh penalties, or worse, death. Just more instability  2. U.S. Mass Shootings - We just continue to give access to individuals who shouldn't have guns. We've become so numb to this. What have we become?  Prayers, comfort, and positive

3 Up 1. Healthcare Debt Removed from Credit Score - This is a small win in a direction that just seems, well...reasonable. Healthcare is expensive and not exactly the fault of an individual's ability to handle their finances responsibly. The subtle change (with restrictions) is a nice addition that ought to help many battling health issues, yet not derail their entire personal life.  2. Alyssa Thompson - The teenage phenom comes off gaining some International play but becoming the first overall pick in the NWSL. Thompson's future is SO bright, and this should be part of that narrative when we marvel at her journey.  3. Ozone Layer Recovery - For years, as a kid, I remember hearing that "we were constantly damaging the Ozone layer". Many thanks to Captain Planet and the Planeteers for that insight. I'm glad to see there has been some progress there.  3 Down 1. Brazil Democracy - It's a shame to see politicians around the world pull from our history with senti

Dome Pondering - 2022 Year in Review

What a wildly, polarizing year that was 2022.  Sure, as we close the year, 2020 feels like a decade ago, and "pandemic life" seems like a time that is difficult to remember (or understand). Yet, no matter how much we attempt to pull away, the awfulness of 2020 and all of its impact has left us in 2022 unpacking from it, cleaning up after it, restoring ourselves after it, and/or learning to deal with lingering leftovers as we move forward.  2022 was the perfect bundle of reflection and renewal. For good, bad, excellent, and worse.  Before jumping into this year's Year in Review, I want to THANK YOU , the continued reader of this blog and this eighteenth edition (!) of the Dome Pondering - Year in Review. It is not lost on me that my contribution to this site has slowed down (as such is life), and of course, the world consumes content in a much different (and some would say easier, but not better) way. Yet, after all of these years, it's still pretty damn cool to see th
