WISTV: Plans for a father-daughter dance at a Midlands elementary school have hit a wall following complaints by some parents. For the last five years, Brockman Elementary in Forest Acres has held a Father-Daughter Dance. During that time, they have raised $2,000 for PTO funds. The move to cancel the dance comes after complaints from a few parents who feel the dance is not inclusive.
The principal and the school’s Parent Teacher Organization mutually decided to cancel the dance and refund the money already collected. Richland One School District Communications Director Karen York says the flyer for the dance states that anybody is allowed. York says as a public school, they make extra effort to be an all-inclusive school.
“There were a few parents that did not think the father-daughter dance was inclusive, when actually, it was at all times,” York said. “It was never an event that was exclusive to only fathers and daughters. Mothers and anyone else who wanted to show up at the dance were certainly welcome to attend.”
“Right now, the principal is in communication with those parents that raised concerns about the father-daughter dance, as well as the vast majority of the other parents at the school,” York said.
The cancellation sent parents questioning the school’s move to cancel the dance.
“There are father-daughter dances that are held at other schools, have been held at Richland One, and other districts here in Columbia, as well as across the country,” York said. “In this particular instance at Brockman, there were some parents, fewer than 10, who raised concerns about father-daughter dance. So again they responded to that and the whole focus is to have a special occasion for all students and all parents, and we certainly hope that will take place next week.”
The scariest part about this is that social justice warriors are gaining ground in South Carolina. That state is almost always the last one to change on pretty much everything. Now it looks like they’re going out of their way to show the country that they’re one of the good ones.
Seriously though, this is asinine. Basically what the school did was side with a bunch of whiny, terrorist parents instead of telling them the truth – we are not canceling this lovely event because you had unprotected sex with an asshole who didn’t stick around. Because that’s what this all comes down to. A bunch of single mothers don’t want their daughters to be stigmatized because they chose to follow the advice of Beyonce and be an independent woman.
The worst part is that the school was actually willing to be inclusive (the favorite buzzword of SJW’s) by allowing mothers to accompany their daughters, which is great. But it still wasn’t enough. Because SJW’s are obsessed with imaginary “equality,” that can never really be achieved in a world where people make such vastly different life decisions. But we can’t have an event anymore where all people aren’t equal. And since some kids have Dads and other’s don’t, it means no one can have fun anymore. The SJW’s won’t allow it.
Father-daughter dances are one of the greatest things America has to offer. Because there is hardly a bond that is stronger than between a father and his little girl. Dads are supposed to stick around and they are supposed to help raise their children. And when they do, it should be something that we acknowledge is a good thing. But we can’t anymore because people who didn’t make these same responsible life decisions don’t want to tell their daughters that they got knocked up by a scumbag sperm donor.
The bottom line is that whenever you see the word “inclusive,” you know nothing good is going to come out of it. Because it sounds good on paper, but it’s really just a word that SJW’s use to make the world a shittier place.
