A Florida public elementary school recently sent students to a gay bar for a field trip.
According to TheBlaze, Broward County Public Schools, one of the largest school districts in the U.S., said that parents were aware of the destination and signed permission slips allowing their kids to go. Sarah Leonardi, a Broward County Public Schools board member, was a chaperone for Wilton Manor Elementary School students on their field trip to Rosie's Bar & Grill.
Leonardi was so taken with the task that she posted the following to Facebook: “I was SO honored to be invited to chaperone @WiltonManorsES’s field trip to the incredible Rosie’s! The students and I had a fun walk over and learned a lot about our community! A huge thank you to @RosiesBnG for hosting this special field trip every year.”
Rosie’s regular menu features items such as “Motha’ Cluckers,” “Naked Sweaty Lovin’,” “Ivana Hooker,” and “Rhoda Cowboy,” but the establishment says the students were provided with their own limited—and sanitized-- kids’ menu.
Rosie’s Bar & Grill touts itself as providing “amazing food and refreshing drinks and sassy fun.”
“Sassy fun!” Wink, wink.
Why take elementary school students on a field trip to a bar, period? Let alone a gay bar.
Is it now passé to take kids to a zoo, historic site, or even a bowling alley? How about an orchard or an effing arboretum? They had to walk across the street to a gay bar?! Don’t tell me the school’s budget doesn’t allow them to go on a short extracurricular bus ride.
Where will the school take the kiddies on their next “field trip?” To a local Pride! Parade, B & D dungeon, or wife-swapping party? Perhaps to an orgy to fulfill an early sex-ed requirement?
