Purple Penguins

I sincerely suspect that contemporary liberalism is descending into madness.  Either that or people are playing very elaborate practical jokes:

A Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools.

“Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug,” it advises.

Go here to read the rest.  Did you ever think you would live to see the day when calling boys, boys and girls, girls would be considered offensive?  The people pushing this are complete, unadulterated nuts.

  1. The students have names and ought to be called by their names, first and last, or reminded of their station in life by their titles, Oh, that’s right, Miss, Mrs. Mr. and Sir have been banished long ago. Are the people to whom we entrust our children so lazy that they cannot remember a student’s name? Or is this a show of power? Or both?

  2. Really this has been going on a long time- not so much about gender, but I remember they were calling kids names of animals instead of saying what they mean, I think the advanced third grade reading group was called bluebirds and the other groups were robins and something else. I’m sure no group was called crowd! Or blackbirds!

  3. That way the kids weren’t s’posed to catch on that some people were better readers than others. .
    .

    But no matter how the staff tries to re-order society and blur the natural truth, those little kids will figure who is a boy and who is a girl; and who reads well and who doesn’t.

  4. A great and mighty INJUSTICE is transpiring here!

    That Barney the purple dinosaur is being thrown under the bus by the penguins and their super intelligent liberal teachers.

    My word! After all that Barney has given and done for America…then this! To be passed over and not even considered.
    Unbelievable!

    That’s why we’ve started the “Children are purple Dinosaurs” campaign. With your support, and a humble contribution of $2,499, we can set things right. As
    Joe Biden would say: “The mind is a terrible thing.”
