BLAH! It personally kills me to think that we have come to this as a society. It feels so torn. We live in a place currently obsessed with sex, vulgarity, and sin. Yet at the same time we flip out over the chance we may be offending someone!!! Really?!?! My personal thoughts on this is that if you are worried that the word Dinosaur, or Hurricane are going to wind up being talked about in school, don't send your kid to school! Homeschool them! Where you can essentially expose them to whatever you'd like and protect them from such horrible, insensitivity!
Its a tough world we live in.. and gasp, there are cases of Divorce... statistically there is a good chance their own parents are divorced! Natural disasters take lives, and ruin homes, and it goes on and on! That is the world we live in! What a rude awakening these poor, innocent children will get when they hit the real world, completely unprepared!
I'm a little surprised they stopped at 50! I mean, what about kids afraid of water... shouldn't we ban the word Water, because it could be considered offensive to those who can't touch it... or my have once heard a story of a man who died drowning in water?
I guess my point is, that I find it ridiculous that there are people who choose to be offended by every little thing. If something offends you, walk away. Change your surroundings, choose to ignore it. Act like the adult you are instead of crying and whining about how awful everyone else is, and demanding that they all change! You change! Sometimes I think we need to put on our big girl panties and just suck it up!

OH GIVE ME A BREAK!!! This is just absurd! Honestly I thought it was a joke at first. Just one of the many reasons my girls will never go to public school. If we ever have to leave their private school I will be homeschooling them precisely so that they WILL be exposed to the real world and learn a healthy respect for, not fear of peoples differences.

Oh boy...walking on eggshells while writing tests. What a waste of time! They don't hesitate to teach the Theory of Evolution yet they are afraid to use the word dinosaur on a test. Honestly, I don't think kids really care and grown ups need to step in and use any given offense as a teaching moment instead of getting upset. With any situation as a parent you guide your child.

I'm surprised they care about upsetting christians...that's a new one! Usually it's...be tolerant to ALL...oh except for Christians...we can be hateful and accuse them of all kinds of things.
