It’s become a holiday, where people think they can do stupid things, and get away with them. It also becomes the time, when the normally stupid thing you’ve done, doesn’t go unnoticed, as it should.
It Stands Out.
For instance, my 16 year old came home from Commack High School after being dressed up in primary colors. I asked if her friends liked her costume? She paused, and told me no one understood that she was meant to be a ‘rainbow.’ Instead they called her “Gay Pride Girl.” She wound up making a note, and taping it to her back that said, “Skittles. Taste the Rainbow.”
We leave the Gay world,… and proceed to her next story. One white kid, painted himself black and called himself Aunt Jemima. He was suspended from school. It got worse, when his mother showed up, screaming at the principal, while of course she was dressed from head to toe, as a Pink Pelican! So now we’ve got Gay, Racist- wait, there’s more!
A Black kid painted himself white, we don’t know if there was a reason… but … he did not get any punishment for this. Gay, Racist, Backwards Racism- and finally…
she received a text from my 13 year old saying she had been sent down to the dean’s office because, in a world filled with Brittneys, Beyonces, and Madonna’s… her Sophie shorts were too short. Gay, Racist, Backwards Racism, Child Pornography…
Meanwhile, my 17 year old son, who was dressed as a warrior, schemed with 2 friends to bring an inflatable bed into the school, inflate it, and put it in the lobby’s pool- for what reason? So they could fish.
We end the Day before Halloween with “Gay, Racist, Backwards Racism, Child Pornography, and plain old Stupidity.
Wait till they get the candy into their systems!
