Father-Daughter dance runs into gender discrimination problems
As always, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is at the forefront of raising a ruckus about what’s truly important in our society. Their latest frontline clashes with the degrading practice of gender-based events such as father-daughter dances and mother-son ballgames.
The ACLU’s Rhode Island state affiliate sent a letter to the school district of Cranston, Rhode Island, complaining about the discriminatory nature of such events. The letter was promoted by a complaint by a mother whose daughter was precluded from attending a father-daughter dance.
Hopefully the U.S. administration will take not of this newly discovered discriminatory practice and pass a Federal law which bans all such events, including the widely practiced Take Your Daughter to Work Day.
Even more importantly, the ACLU should put two of the most destructive gender-based celebrations in its crosshairs, namely, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Parents have suffered this discriminatory practice long enough. We should just have a Parents’/Legal Guardians’ Day.
