An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
If you’ve come around to our little corner of the blogosphere for a while, you’ll know that we use to live in Waupun, WI. When I heard about this example of PC run amok, I just about fell off my chair.
The principal at Waupun High School has had the school’s fight song rewritten because he feared its use of the word “fellow” could be construed as sexist.
Principal Jeff Finstad says most people didn’t know the lyrics to the song, so students wanted to paint them on the gymnasium wall.
That’s when he read the words, which included the line, “Fight fellows, fight, fight, fight.”
He told students he wouldn’t allow those words on the wall.
Is this clown serious????
Finstad asked junior Bridget Nickel to rewrite the words. She came up with a version that removed gender-specific terms.
Well, HE might be gender neutral, but I’m fairly sure that a good 99% of the students aren’t. Come to think of he probably is neutered. Any MAN with balls wouldn’t even considering such stupidity!
The school has dealt previously with an issue of political correctness. The school logo used to be a “W” for “Warriors” but it’s been replaced by a character that looks like a knight.
A warrior depicts strength and courage, but evidently PC has pussified EVERYTHING these days. No wonder we’re stuck with a generation of simpering wimps.
