    I read this earlier. Its fucking sign language, its how he signs his name. The parents shouldn't have to change the kids name just because some dumb fucks don't like the fact he signs.

    They can shove it up their bums.

    Doubtful, I'm afraid. I don't know if this story is even true, but when it comes to PC, I gave up saying "this is as bad as it's gonna get" a long time ago.

    Just mind numbingly dumb. I love the school officials statement and how this is in anyway in the "best interest of the child". I hate over the top PC and people who can't use common sense in situations like this.

    School Board Victimizes 3-Year-Old Deaf Boy
    August 29, 2012: A Nebraska school district is telling the parents of a deaf 3-year-old boy that the sign language for his name, Hunter Spanjer, looks too much like a gun and must be changed.

    Well... To a deaf person I would think that is his name as sure as a spoken one is to someone who could hear. It would be the same thing as a teacher telling the child you are pronouncing your name wrong to someone who could hear.

    I agree.

    *laughs*

    I like that.

    From the article:

    The school is claiming the entire matter is a “misunderstanding” — but still wants Hunter to change his name.

    The PC Police are pretty much everywhere. Kinda like cockroaches.

    And it doesn't take many of them to scare people into submission, they've been very effective. One good self-righteous, narcissistic, hypersensitive loudmouth can easily be enough.

    Whatever is beyond beyond fucking stupid is where this idiocy belongs.

    Reminds me of something my wife experienced in Catholic grade school, compliments of some nun. One day a new little boy shows up in class. He's from some European country and the nun has him in front of the class to introduce him. "Class, I'd like you all to say hello and welcome to your new classmate, Arpod Horvath...Arpod's a strange name so we'll just call him Jimmy."

    Yeah, and it will stop, as soon as we the people muster up the courage to push back at these blowhards, and push back hard, every single time they do something like this. This happens in your community, have the guts to speak out publicly and fight it. Just remember, there are many many more of us, than there are of them, and no matter how loud they screech, we CAN drown them out, and shout them down, until we silence them and the insanity of Political Correctness forever! This shit only happens because too many good people are afraid to challenge it. Damned if I know why! The people who promote this garbage are cowards and wusses in the first place, which is why they do what they do. Support any citizen, any business and any politician that fights them, and oppose any who support them!

    Kid's parents should change his name to Eada Bagadix. See how they like that.

    If I were his parents, I'd teach the kid to enter every classroom shouting one word.


    BANG!
