I find it somewhat amusing, as well as sad, that we have a group of people so inept in the use of their native language that they have to make up words in order to communicate.

I suppose that, on the surface, one could say that it was indeed an "anti-bullying" measure set about to make sure that everyone has a "date" to the dance, but when you go deeper and consider the internal psychological motivations, perhaps even subconscious motivations, one may consider that their religious beliefs had quite an impact on this.

Perhaps this is what Paul meant to say. Perhaps it isn't.

Well, as it sits nationally we have a problem w/ radical left ideals being pushed onto children in schools so if in fact it is crazy religious people doing it in this case so be it. Still crazy being pushed into the soft tissue of children but just because it is utah i don't personally by that as enough evidance to show that it is not just part of the current trend.

Regardless of what/who is doing it it is garbage. Im going w/ it being part of the current trend untill i see some evidence otherwise.

Hey Hollywood, the can't refuse rule is so the boys won't be afraid to ask a girl to dance, don't you remember how all the girls would be on one side of the gym floor and all the guys would be on the other side, wanting to ask some cute girl to dance but were afraid to walk across the floor and ask for the fear of being rejected, and embarrassed in front of everyone?

I presume that some of the female teachers came up with this as a solution. If some male teacher had suggested it, there would have been an immediate outcry, of male dominance or misogyny.

This is being blamed on the left?

Yes, because they're the ones who want to keep women from being empowered, who protect wife abusers and child abusers, who believe that women in short skirts and tank tops are 'asking for it' and don't believe in the ERA

Yes, it's the left that wants to keep girls from saying no.



jesus, the right wing is so full of alternative facts they don't know when they've being dumber than buzzard shit
