Having a Puck for a Brain

This latest p.c. idiocy is from Dissonance and Disrespect:
A British Columbia hockey mum thinks that it's discriminatory to require her 14-year old daughter to change in separate changing rooms from the boys before and after the game. So she's going to the B.C. [Kangaroo Court] Human Rights Commission so that her daughter can be ogled or groped by her horny teenage teammates.
The mother, Jane Emlyn, believes tht girls’ rights are being violated because they’re not allowed into the boys’ dressing rooms. Her daughter, Jewel, in the meantime, thinks she misses a lot of team camaraderie by being forced to use other facilities.

Here’s how Dissonance sees things:
Unlike this blogger, Ms. Emlyn has never been a 14-year old boy. Equally unlike this blogger, she is completely devoid of common sense. Which is why she probably thinks that matters of high moral principle drive the support of her daughter's teammates quest to share a locker room with the boys.

No doubt Ms. Emlyn will win her case. If our governing classes think that gender is irrelevant to the fundamental institutions such as marriage, why should it matter for locker rooms?

And her daughter's complaint sounds not unlike that of homosexuals about marriage--I feel excluded, it hurts my pride to feel left out, and nothing matters more than soothing my feelings of exclusion.

Dumb kid. Dumber mother. This is the kind of woman that makes men tear their hair out. How can she have lived in the world long enough to have raised a child to the age of fourteen and still not understood that there are two -- count them, lady, one-two -- sexes and such are the differences between them that one group should not have to be oppressed by the presence of the pubescent derriere of a member of the other group while they're dressing out for hockey?

Twit and her offspring, Twitette. Pass that aspirin bottle.

Well, you're right. You're absolutely right, but a tiny, secret voice inside me still says: lucky dudes...

It'll be like the 50 Smurfs and 1 Smurfette.

Well, Baron, your *mother* would not have considered you a lucky dude and your dad would have suggested you find some other way to spend your time.

Like maybe stickball.

Jane Emlyn will be the first one to demand separate changing rooms as soon as one of her daughter's teammates takes liberties with her.

This woman is setting her daughter up for it.

Just you wait.

I hope that nothing worse happens. What irks me -- worries me, really -- is the total lack of understanding of dimorphism, i.e., the differences between the sexes and how they re-act to stimuli. This woman is guilty of criminal ignorance and of sacrificing her daughter's emotional well-being to the god of p.c.

As I said, TWIT. OF the first order.

This story is so "out there" that I had to read it twice to get what this mother is demanding.

Definitely, child endangerment!
