It's finally come to this: a school in Canada has determined that Mother's Day and Father's Day are non-inclusive and therefore will not be celebrated at the institution.
The Dartmouth elementary school said it is aiming to celebrate diversity and inclusivity while avoiding making children who are part of non-traditional families feel left out.
“Children can be isolated in a classroom if they’ve lost their mom or are in a family without a dad or in a family with two moms or two dads,” Education Minister Ramona Jennex recently told CTV Atlantic.
Well, we certainly wouldn't want a precious snowflake's feelings to be hurt, now would we? While, quite frankly, the two days have always seemed contrived - much like Secretary's Day, just another opportunity for Hallmark and their ilk to peddle off $5 pieces of paper - the action seems, once again, to exemplify political correctness run amok. Increasingly, it seems that the Leftists who predominate in all institutions of public vegetation insist upon foisting their own personal hangups onto other peoples' kids.
