Albert McMahon Elementary School in Mission, British Columbia, Canada, has decided that its first- and second-graders won’t be allowed to observe Mother’s Day or Father’s Day in school this year. They will no longer be making gifts for either parent in order to “celebrate diversity, inclusivity and also nurture our students who are part of non-traditional families.”
Yes, far-sighted progressives are leading the push to eliminate the observance of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, in order to avoid offending those that may not have a mother or a father, or either. And also to be more respectful of those whose parents, if around, are transgender, gender-fluid, or simply not confined to arbitrary, rigid, “assigned” roles, etc., etc. Perhaps we should all blind ourselves so we can’t see protruding breasts, facial hair, and other features that could tempt us to unfairly label someone “male” or “female,” thereby allowing us to see past those hurtful and illusory constructs.
Maybe we could have a “Parental Units Day?” On second thought, that still could be offensive to those who may not have any parents.
I suggest, instead, that we start observing a “Non-Mother’s Day” and a “Non-Father’s Day,” out of respect- and reverence- for those individuals or couples who have had the courage to terminate their pregnancies.
This would be in line with abortion, robots, sex dolls, A.I., and Islamic Extremist’s openly avowed preference for death over life. It is time to ban the observance and celebration of those who have themselves observed God’s command to go forth and multiply, and who have brought forth new life through the natural- and holy- consummation of a man and a woman’s love for each other. It is, rather, time…past time, really…to recognize and celebrate those who simply don’t want the work and hassle that a baby would bring, those that erased their baby as easily as they would slap a mosquito, and those that realized they couldn’t ethically bring a baby into this cold, heartless, unwelcoming and non-inclusive world.
