Cultural Wars 

A one-two punch today, from the front lines of the Moron Wars.

Seems a young girl checked out a book from the elementary school, a fairy tale about a prince who discovers the love of his life is another prince. The parents complained, as they are wont to do, because they can't figure out why the rest of the world won't simply conform to the values they raise their own kids with.

For once, a school principal stood up for her library and for her school.

"What might be inappropriate for one family, in another family is a totally acceptable thing," said Elizabeth Miars, Freeman's principal.

I'll second that. These parents, the real winners, are going to file a complaint about the book and are "considering transferring their daughter." Gee, that'll teach us. I just feel bad for the daughter, really. Those are the parents she has to grow up with. Fucked from the start.

Then there's this, which I find via die puny humans.

Okay. It isn't that the populace of that county are a bunch of fucking morons. That much is evident in that they throw a festival to celebrate the anniversary of John Scopes getting put on trial for teaching evolution. So that the residents of the fine Rhea County of Tennessee are total fuckwits is beyond reproach.

What worries me is that the measure to ban all homosexuals from living in their county (of total fuckwits), put forth by a man named J.C. Fugate (total fuckwit), passed among the commissioners (Homo Fuckwiticus Totalus) with a vote of 8 to 0. That's everyone. That's kind of scary. Every person in an office that matters in that county is, that's right, a total fuckwit.

We'll sidestep how completely unamerican such an ordinance is. I just gotta ask this question of the fine residents (total fuckwits, all) of Rhea County:

Do you really think gay people want to live in a county full of people like you?
