Oh boy...another example of political correctness gone wrong...

CRANSTON, R.I. -- In a move that has taken some parents by surprise, the school department has announced that it is banning traditional "father-daughter" and "mother-son" activities, saying they violate state law.

Supt. Judith Lundsten said the move was triggered by a letter ifrom the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of a single mom who had complained that her daughter had not been able to attend her father-daughter dance.

Lundsten said school attorneys found while federal Title IX legislation banning gender discrimination gives an exemption for "father-son" and "mother-daughter" events, Rhode Island law doesn't.

The new ban was brought to light Monday by Sean Gately, a Republican running for the state Senate, who said if elected he will work to change the state law.

They host entire events just for fathers to dance with their daughters? Seems a little creepy if you ask me.

Um, you probably would (at least) know the person after living 17-18 years with them, right? :lol:

Wait, there's federal legislation that says it's ok, but since the state doesn't, it's not allowed? States are allowed to write laws that supersede those of the federal government?

The article mentions nothing about ages.

It's one thing to have a special father-daughter dance within a larger dance event, but if the entire event is just for fathers to dance with their daughters, that seems weird to me. Maybe I am reading it the wrong way?

The Father-Daughter, Mother-Son dances are for the graduating class (High School).

Yup, like how in public schools now they no longer take kids on field trips or do activities which would cost the parents money.

It's really unfortunate that some children can't participate in these things, but "My kid can't go, therefore no children should be able to" is not the solution.

I'm not a mom so I'm gonna get mother's day cancelled. Also, family day is racist towards single people who don't get along with their parents. :rolleyes:

They should ban dances all together - must not offend anyone.

While they are at it - shut down the schools - that way they can be sure that they will no longer offend anyone (other than those wanting school back).

I guess Victoria day will be cancelled as well - for half the people (more?) living in Canada have no ties to the Queen.

Religion will be banned as it offends some atheists.

Atheists will be banned as they offend some religious.

Cars will be banned, bicycling in public, wearing crocks will not be allowed neither.

We will have to lose all emotional ties...no longer be free to express ourselves - everyone will wear the same clothes, same colour...we will become a facist race of sorts - kind of like in Equilibrium...
