    Default R.I public schools ban ‘father-daughter’ dances following ACLU complaint

    another hurt feelings agenda...

    CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) — The mayor of a Rhode Island city that ended father-daughter dances and mother-son ballgames because of the state’s gender discrimination law is calling the move an attack on time-honored traditions.

    Cranston Mayor Allan Fung says he’s “utterly disappointed” the school district ended the gender-based events after the state affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter of complaint last spring.

    Schools Superintendent Judith Lundsten told school organizations in an August letter that district attorneys found that while federal gender discrimination laws exempt such events, Rhode Island’s law does not.

    ACLU Executive Director Steven Brown says the complaint came from a single mother whose daughter was precluded from attending the father-daughter dance.

    He said gender-specific events are not appropriate and commended the school system for banning them.

    It's amazing to me, how devoid of meaning and purpose, some people's lives are.

    Only in America.

    I am amazed this country has gotten to the point where 1 "offended" person has to be coddled to so their feelings aren't hurt while the other 99.99% suffer.

    Unbelievably so. I think I will start apologizing to my daughter for bringing her into this mess of a world lol.

    Back to that girl...you mean there isn't a single male figure in her life that could take her? Uncle...grand father...an uncle thats not really an uncle, just a friend of her moms...I doubt they check birth certificates at the door.

    Her mother fufills the role of father too, being a single parent.

    Make a statement and dance with your mother. That would have sent a positive message.

    BUT NOOOOOO!!!!

    She had to get ACLU involved.

    Why doesn't the ACLU actually rattle it's saber on something that matters?
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Reminds me of Damon's character in The Departed and how he says that he will always have a job... Even if he has to arrest innocent people. Maybe these fuckers have no big battles to fight.

    Hell, I'm sure there are girls that could have brought more than 1 dad due to mom not knowing who the baby daddy really is. Could have just loaned him out.

    Next thing you know they will file a lawsuit to allow little dike girls into the boy scouts.
