It’s back to school time and you know what that means — an influx of ridiculous stories involving bonehead school officials! Hooray!
Here’s the first of the new school year involving a little girl and her Wonder Woman lunchbox. Please enjoy this asinine letter that the girl’s parents received from school.
Wonder Woman and her history of violence are not welcomed in this school! Wonder Woman and her history of being a strong female character are not welcomed here!
Just look at how violent she looks with her awesome hair and the golden lasso that makes people tell the truth. And that awful message to little girls explaining that women can be both BEAUTIFUL and SMART is NOT WELCOME in this institution of homogenization and “one of us” mentality.
We don’t need little girls thinking they can be anything they want to be around here, thank you very much!
Wonder Woman and her violent looks are distracting children from lessons about the Civil War, slavery, the way we wiped out an entire people because we wanted their lands and…
well…she’s too violent!!!
This Wonder Woman lunchbox story hits close to home — not long ago, my son came home with his Superman shirt turned inside out. His teacher made him turn it around because the superhero clothing “encouraged him to play fight” and be aggressive. He’s a 5-year-old boy. I could put him in a Snuggie and the kid would still figure out a way to turn himself into a superhero. “I’M SLUG BRO! BEWARE MY SLUGGISH BEHAVIOR!”
So I just smiled and said “ok” and then let the kid wear superhero shirts for a month because have you seen kids clothing today? EVERYTHING HAS A FUCKING SUPERHERO ON IT!
But seriously, go ahead school officials, and spend more time writing letters home about Wonder Woman lunchboxes. It sure beats teaching children, amma right?!?!
