Rejection is a part of life. An important lesson for kids to learn and deal with. This includes being rejected by girls/boys, being rejected by sports team try-outs, receiving a failing grade when no effort is given, and not getting trophy handouts simply for wearing the uniform. I actually loathe the term "snowflake," but for real people, we're doing young people a disservice by treating them like they're little gods and goddesses who are incapable of handling the word NO.

This thread has brought out a lotta stupid.

It's a sixth grade Valentine Dance.
It's a school function, and the teachers are controlling it, like it's a school function, they are setting the ground rules that the teachers feel are appropriate to the particular setting.
They aren't rewriting the constitution to require women to submit to men.
They are probably dealing with a behavior issue that has occurred in the past.

What's next? Requiring students to ask permission to use bathroom is Stalinism?

Change women to girls and men to boys and actually, yes. They ARE requiring girls to submit to boys.

What is going on in the schools nation wide is important be it cutting out to kill ae mockingbird, letting young boys into the girls locker rooms, or teaching A is for Activist to children, telling young girls that no is not an option...the list goes on. Note that much of these examples are in MN, well that is because i pay attention to my surroundings..i am sure that it is bad in other states too.

Well this is a growing problem and it is not even bringing up.the leftist cancer that is infecting the colleges.

It's Mormon country. The real question is: Why the presumption any one or thing liberal is connected with this?

Women aren't exactly first-class citizens in Mormon culture. Ask Rob Porter's ex-wives. If this action by the school was not Mormon-approved, heads would be rolling.

Either way, what's it to you? Are you the trolling police? Before you ask, yes, I am the trolling police.

Because of all of the radical leftist insanity that has been going on in schools lately and that schools are predominantly ran by leftists. I believe that this is a very serious issue and would feel the same.way if the religious right would have successfully infiltrated the education system and started pounding their nonsense into the soft tissue of the american children. So, whats it to me...well if your just trollywooding then i can just dismis your.posts as.such, if not then i would.attempt 2 take them seriously.


Huh

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to educate you once again

That is the SECT of the MORMON faith you were defending.
You never read the links you post as proof of anything. I suggest you read the article. It's criticisms apply in spade to today's "christian" Trump supporters and to our "christian" president himself.

Jesus Christ was a socialist or communist depending on how the terms are defined. The early Christians surely weren't unfettered capitalists.

Cut and paste christianity cuts this passage:
Acts 4:32-35 -- Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.
Not exactly tax cuts to put more fat around your waist, eh TNV? And don't try to hide. You're on record of supporting an evil man because he's good for the economy. How do you reconcile allowing yourself to be bought with this?
Matthew 6:24 -- “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
That money in your pocket, that says "in God We Trust," legitimately it can be asked: Which god?

And please, don't quote Article Twelve of the 1936 Soviet Constitution to me:
In the USSR work is a duty and a matter of honor for every able-bodied citizen, in accordance with the principle: “He who does not work, neither shall he eat.”
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to educate you once again.

I'm dead serious.

Mind you, I think the school policy is pathetic, but I don't see it at any cross-purposes with the submissive role expected of Mormon women.

You're predisposed to that conclusion, but, that's part of it for sure.

However, anything that happens in Utah has to have Mormonism factored into it.
