NY Issues Banned Word List

Does everyone remember that NY has mandatory sex education for children that includes field trips to the drug stores to teach our youth to shop for condoms and find the nearest clinic for STD’s? 

The “open” forum for the sex ed program makes their latest mandate a little surprising.  I mean, come on, you are going to allow your kids to learn about the varied methods of sex, up to and including bestiality, but you can’t talk about animal shelters?

I have always thought California would be the first to fall into the abyss, but New York, it may be time to bid you adieu.

This list is entirely inadequate.  They forgot Wagner.  And Disco.  Both upset me very much.  And Jackie Smith’s dropped touchdown pass in Super Bowl XIII.  I still haven’t gotten over that.  Not to mention that whole unfortunate affair with Jerry Kramer in the Ice Bowl.  Unforgivable.  Did I mention how upsetting it is to me to be afflicted with the pretentious bombast that is Wagner’s ... ahem ... music?  Oh, and let’s not forget that whole occurrence in the top half of the ninth inning of Game 6 of the 1985 World Series.  Reminding me of that can cause foaming rage.  Yes, and some of us weren’t too happy when Cop Rock got cancelled.  We don’t especially appreciate being told it is a candidate for ‘Worst TV Show Ever.’  There are lots of subjects out there that would offend my tender feelings, and I want them prohibited.  The subjects, I mean.  Not my feelings.  Like Wagner, for instance.

If I were a resident of New York, I would want ‘New York Department of Education’ added to the list.

I just shrug at these things, keep my head down, and carry on with home educating my kids.

[1] carl,

I am thankful that you did (ultimately) identify the Wagner to whom you were referring. Upon the first encounter of the name in the referenced comment, I wondered what it was about Mayor Wagner that so “got your goat,” not considering you might have intended the German composer.

Pax et bonum,

Just another instance of the state pandering to the culture of entitlement—the rapidly proliferating ideas that:

• what I care about is all that matters, your concerns are irrelevant;

• it is my time that matters, not that of others, so kindly get out of my way as I cut you off on the road;

etc.,etc.,etc.

Modern American culture is becoming increasingly rude and unattractive, starting with those who are viewed as celebrities and seeping down through the strata of the society, where it may eventually overwhelm the nation.

Pax et bonum,
Keith Töpfer
