School renames Mother’s Day and Father’s Day for being too ‘binary’

Snowflake Alert!

An elementary school in Brunswick, an inner suburb of Melbourne, Australia, has renamed Mother’s Day so as not to upset children who don’t have a mother.

Citing the Herald Sun, Charlie Moore reports for the Daily Mail, May 8, 2019, that in previous years, Brunswick East Primary School had hosted a fundraising stall where children could buy Mother’s Day merchandise such as mugs, trinkets, candles and soaps.

But this year, the school renamed the fundraising stall to the Appreciation stall because some families were offended by the stall being called the Mother’s Day stall. One parent told the Herald Sun: “Some kids, for whatever reason, may not have a mother in their lives, so I don’t mind if they broaden the stall so those kids feel included.”

In the Appreciation stall, kids can buy gifts for any special person in their life, not just their moms.

Principal Janet Di Pilla said she had consulted with staff, parents and students before installing the change. She explained in a newsletter to parents:

I am sorry that in the past we have offended some members of our community and I hope that this acknowledgment goes some way to address any hurt which has occurred in the past.

I sincerely hope that this change in name will show that we as a community recognise that our families are not made up of any particular combination of people and that we no longer subscribe to a binary world.

According to the Daily Mail, “Right-wing” political party Australian Liberty Alliance “slammed” the school for the change. It wrote online: “We believe the natural family is the core building block of human society and must be protected.”

Yahoo News Australia reports that the school will also scrub Father’s Day. Principal Di Pilla said in the newsletter: “We will be holding 2 of these [Appreciation] days each year; one to coincide with the ‘traditional’ Mother’s Day and the other to coincide with the ‘traditional’ Father’s Day.”

Di Pilla’s announcement received mixed responses from the community at large, some expressing outrage at the change of name in emotionally charged posts to Facebook. As an example, one Facebook poster wrote: “The more I hear about what they are allowing to happen to Australia, the angrier I get. Shame on Brunswick East Primary School. They have now decided to drop the Mother’s Day and call it Appreciation day. That Principal needs sacking for allowing this.”

They should just add an additional day called “Perverts Day.” That would cover all of them. Leave our moms and dads alone!!

The corruption and perversion of public discourse continues, and these mentally ill people forget something—two things, actually. First, everything is binary or supposed to be binary: Either one is male or female. (Exceptions to this rule, e.g., hermaphodism, are extremely rare). But second, and just as important, all our thinking is binary. “Should I go to work today or not?” Well, why would such a question come up? I feel “under the weather.” So one would, in the end, decide either to go to work or to stay home. What third choice is there? Just as important, these educational freaks… Read more »

Whether or not Mizzz Di Pilla “subscribes to a binary world” (I wasn’t aware one needed a subscription) or not, states of binary opposition exist and have always existed and always will. Good and evil for instance. Guess which side she’s on. The side that says Mothers Day is “offensive”. These self-important freaks think they can just cancel reality on a whim. Yes they are destroying gender and sexuality. Another example, The Marching Pussyhats have declared a “sex strike”

Funny! I don’t recall being asked if I subscribed to a “binary world” or not. The Central Committee need to do a better job of getting those memos out whenever THEY make a decision.

So not only do we take a special day away from Mothers (and later Fathers), nobody gets recognized for there contributions. Wouldn’t want a showy cow in the herd, now would we? What am I saying, I can’t make a decision. Someone might take offense. I”d better call The Committee.

When did anyone ever tell us that life was always going to be fair–and even Steven? This business of sucking up to those who wish to decimate the idea of real families . . . Moms, Dads, and children was just take a long walk on a short pier. Even if there are unfortunate children who do not have a mother in the home–they may well have a grandmother, or a aunt who stands in the place of a mother . . . . and more than that, every child should aspire to being either a Mother or Father who… Read more »

This is wrong in so many ways, I don’t know where to begin.

What it indicates to me is they are just not even interested in supporting appropriate, decent, moral, family structure.

Celebrate children, it is LESBIAN DAY! Celebrate children, it is QUEER DAY! Party, party, party. For us common sense people, we cry and cry because all values are crumbling in a perverse society.

Australia is rightly nicknamed, “Oz.” They are definitely not in Kansas anymore.

Tell me that this is not a deliberate attempt to brainwash and influence children. The educational system must focus on being just that: Educational and not propagandist.

You think they can’t sink any lower, then they surprise you.
Some people don’t have money, that means we should stop using banks.
