School Renames ‘Mother’s Day’ To Avoid Offending Anyone

Oy.

Ok – so before I start, let me make it clear that I understand that mother’s day can be difficult for children without moms.

Here’s the thing – I think every day is difficult for children without moms. Or dads. It’s just reality. One day isn’t going to change their reality.

But is this about children who have tragically lost their mothers? Or is this some PC bullcrap about how binary traditional families are offensive.

Hmm.

According to Daily Mail:

A school has renamed a Mother’s Day stall to avoid upsetting any children without a mother.

Brunswick East Primary School in Melbourne will call the stand an ‘appreciation stall’ instead.

In previous years, the school has hosted a fundraising stall where children could buy Mother’s Day merchandise such as mugs, trinkets, candles and soaps.

But staff have decided to change it because some families were offended – and now children can buy gifts for any special person in their life.

Offended.

By Mothers’ Day.

I mean… really?

Principal Janet Di Pilla explained the change in a newsletter to parents, reported the Herald Sun.

She wrote: ‘I am sorry that in the past we have offended some members of our community and I hope that this acknowledgment goes some way to address any hurt which has occurred in the past.

‘I sincerely hope that this change in name will show that we as a community recognise that our families are not made up of any particular combination of people and that we no longer subscribe to a binary world.’

Theeere we go. “We no longer subscribe to a binary world.”

This has NOTHING to do with children who have lost their mothers.

Just as I thought.
