Ban Bossy: The Latest Progressive Bullcrap

Someone’s offended? Ban it. Something’s not equal? Tear it down. Progressive bullcrap is killing us. What do you say, we ban it?

Seriously, when is enough, ENOUGH with this progressive BULLCRAP?

Ban bossy?

That’s the new star-studded campaign being trotted out right now. According to the campaign, by middle school, girls are less interested in management positions than boys.

Well, there can only be one explanation for that; and it isn’t that boys and girls are just different from one another, with innately different interests. No, the only explanation is this: having been called “bossy.”

Now, either boys have never been called “bossy” or somehow, some way, through some incredible miracle, they struggled through the horror of being labeled as such, and went on to management positions anyway. Yes, being labeled “bossy”, seems to be an affliction that is affecting girls, alone.

It is also apparent that the “b” word is not problematic; but bossy? Verboten. Wait, I’m sorry, that’s a German word that was sometimes used during the Nazi-era and can no longer be used either. Uh oh, did I just use the word “Nazi?” Oh my.

Whatever, I’m 100 percent committed to banning words, as you should be. We should ban the word “pain” so that we won’t feel any, any longer. What about banning the word “icky”, so that nothing would ever taste bad or gross us out again; and if we ban the word "disease," how much longer will we all live? The possibilities are endless.

Personally, I would also love to see a ban on all level-two, lookalike firearms. I’m speaking of course, of the forefinger and thumb, placed in such a way on ones’ hand, that they resemble a gun. A teacher in Ohio recently caught a 10-year-old “brandishing” just such a “firearm.”

Fortunately for all involved, the kid was quickly disarmed and suspended from school for three days. Whew. That was a close one. What if his finger had gone off? Last year a 6-year-old was suspended from school for doing the same thing! It’s an epidemic.

In March 2013, a second grader chewed his Pop-Tart pastry into the shape of a gun and said, “bang, bang.” Luckily, he missed; and was suspended from school. Isn’t it time to ban the word “bang,” especially when followed by the word, “bang” again?  I think you know the answer to that.  And don’t even get me started on pastry weaponry.

When will these little maniacs learn?

Brandishing fingers and pastries is dangerous and deplorable. Don’t give me the excuse that they’re just little kids and we all did those things when we were little. Times have changed, there’s no excuse for this type of behavior anymore.

I don’t have the exact statistics in front of me, but the number of innocent people killed by “fatal-finger-fire” has to be in the millions. Or even the billions. Again, I don’t have the exact number, but even if it’s only one, (which of course it isn’t, the number of “finger-fire-fatalities” is zero) it’s too many.

But we all know, the number of casualties from level-two lookalike firearms is not the point. The point is to send a strong message to our children. Like the one sent to Plymouth High School in Canton, Mich. A powerful message of equality was recently sent to the parents and students involved with the boys varsity baseball program there.

Apparently, up until six years ago, it was difficult to view the baseball games being played there, because of a chain-link fence around the field. So a group of parents got together and privately raised the money to build raised bleachers so that they could better see the games their sons were playing. Not only did they raise the money, but they all chipped in and actually built the bleachers as well.

Those new bleachers were just torn down after six years. Why? Well come on; obviously it was because they were nicer than the adjacent girls softball bleachers; and someone complained to the U.S Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights about the inequality.

Wait, couldn’t the parents watching the girls softball games have gotten together and privately raised funds to build themselves better bleachers like the boys baseball parents did? Don’t be silly. It’s so much easier to tear down than to build up, so that’s what they made the school do. Tear them down. The bleachers were also not handicap accessible; but you sure couldn’t add a ramp, could you? No, the bleachers had to go. It’s the progressive way.

So, why would anyone get upset over a few stories about word banning and bleacher inequality?

If these were isolated incidents or stopped with these examples, maybe no one would. However, the problem is, the same mentality, the same progressive ideology is applied to income inequality as to bleacher inequality.

We can’t build up the poor; we have to tear down the rich. We can’t build up third world nations; we have to tear down the United States of America.

So much of what we see every single day in the news is attributable to the progressive mentality that has crept into American thinking over the past 100 years.

Someone’s offended? Ban it. Something’s not equal? Tear it down. Progressive bullcrap is killing us. What do you say, we ban it?
