What happens when leftism runs amok?
In New York City, a school has canceled a traditional father-daughter dance because it is not gender inclusive.
From Daily Wire:
A traditional father-daughter dance at a Staten Island school has been postponed on the basis of not being inclusive enough of other genders. The school claims city policies are to blame, according to CBS New York.
“This year’s dance was supposed to be on Friday, right before Valentine’s Day, but the school’s principal directed the Parent-Teacher Association to reschedule it because of the Department of Education’s gender-neutral policy,” reports CBS. “It was originally put in place a year ago and requires school events to include all types of students and families.”
Parents have already begun to complain, saying political correctness has ruined a fun event. Girls are also disappointed, as they have been anticipating the dance for months.

“It’s kind of a let down,” 5th grader Angelina Lubo said. “At least I could still spend time with my dad.”
“It’s supposed to be father and daughter,” grandparent Traci Javois said. “Father and daughter need to have a relationship, you know, feel good.”
“It’s father-daughter dance, not a grandmother slash son slash daughter dance,” another parent said. “Absolutely not.”
The dance has been rescheduled for March, and will be open to the entire school community. Some parents say being politically correct is getting in the way of reinforcing a special bond.
“It’s almost as if they’re taking it away,” father Matt West said.
This is stupidity at the highest level.
Liberals are the worst!
