cant say fairy anymore

Post by marksman » 02 Aug 2019, 7:18 pm

so I have just been informed by my young son that he got a reflection at school today for saying "fairy" :lol:

I just about fell to the ground in laughter as he was telling me :lol: :lol:
he was explaining that he has seen fairy penguins in port phillip bay while out fishing
the teacher scolded him saying that they are not fairy penguins but are called little penguins
and that fairy is a bad word that offends people :unknown: you lose your lunch time in reflexion :wtf:
so he went to the reflexion room and the teacher there asked what he had done?, he told the teacher who had a laugh and told him to go have lunch :lol:
so I checked out wikipedia and they call the fairy penguins little penguins now :lol: :lol:
I can see I will have to take this up with the teacher and sort him out about it :lol: :lol:

what is this world coming to :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yep for a few years now. But dont forget to tell the teacher he/she is an idiot for me. They were called fairy penguins for about 120 years. Sheesh what is he smoking?

Tell the teacher that being called 'little' offends you and if he keeps calling them fairy penguins little... he won't be able to SEE his own reflection.

It's when you have to sit there and reflect on what you've said or done. :lol:

Basically time out or similar.

reflection is when your child gets a time out and has to stay in a classroom instead of out in the playground for lunch :crazy: to reflect :shock:

it's really hard when your 10 year old is being indoctrinated by activist teachers who think they’re entitled to inflict their politics on impressionable children
I spend so much time unteaching my children what they are being taught to think :thumbsdown: they should only be being taught how to think :thumbsup:

On the other side of the coin - I have a mate who is a teacher. Recently at some kind of meeting involving himself, a student, and parents I think, the student was looking very uninterested in what was going on. My mate said to him "I can see that you are really excited about this". The kid complained, and the parents have complained, and he has had to "please explain" why he was using sarcasm with a student.

Political correctness is out of control.

Google the story about the name change of the fairy beat up and tell your son's dopey teacher what really happened.
Here's a bit out of the Herald Sun at the time - very funny...

Rebecca Smith, spokeswoman for Sea World, confirmed: "We didn't want to upset the gay community.

"We didn't have any complaints about the name of the penguins, but someone thought it could be seen as offensive so we decided to change it to little penguin instead.

"The name is more politically correct. We're not treating it as a big issue."

But the name change has had the opposite effect. Queensland's gay community described it as ridiculous and unnecessary.

"If they were called poofter penguins or something more direct, it might be a problem. But I don't see the name fairy penguin as a mickey take," Kamahl Fox, chairman of gay support group Gold Coast Breakers, said.

Someone told me some of the southern states have school programs or something that encourage kids to choose from a bunch of genders? Like new York with its 36 recognized genders and Canada with its infinite genders? They are removing the precision of language with all this crap. Which might sound trite but words have power. Common folks basically got free of oppression by applying agreed definitions, backed by common law and eventually strengthened by science. You take that away and the powers that be can have us back in the old days when the church used to say " All men are created equal, unfortunately 1/2 of you still have to be serf class".

I suppose the Black Garden Spider can't be called black anymore just in case it offends someone? ... the PC term for it is the Non-reflective Garden Spider :unknown:

I'd be looking forward to my next parent teacher interview if I were you, although I probably wouldn't wait that long, a phone call to the School Principal for a "please explain" would be in order, and a letter of apology from the teacher would be the demanded.


I'm offended by leftard teachers standing children in the corner for calling Fairy Penguins, Fairy Penguins.

Due to over-sensitive, new age snowflakes, Fairies shall now be called Littles
