"Disdain for “political correctness” is often positioned as a concern that some important truth is not being spoken for fear of offending someone. But that concern is nothing but smoke and mirrors. To invoke “political correctness” is really to be concerned about loss of power and privilege. It is about disappointment that some “ism” that was ingrained in our society, so much that citizens of privilege could express the bias through word and deed without fear of reprisal, has been shaken loose. Charging “political correctness” generally means this: “I am comfortable with my privilege. I don’t want to have to question it. I don’t want to have to think before I speak or act. I certainly don’t wish to inconvenience myself for the comfort of lesser people (whoever those people may be—women, people of color, people with disabilities, etc.)”"

I can almost detect sense of disbelief at my presence when people tell me I’m the first Native they’ve ever met. There’s a tinge of disappointment in some people’s voices that tells me they weren’t expecting me and I’ve somehow ruined the fun. It’s as if they’ve spent their entire…

North Dakota students mock Native Americans with super offensive #SiouxperDrunk shirts

North Dakota had voted to drop the Fighting Sioux mascot in 2012, after the NCAA declared University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname abusive and hostile. But some UND students apparently don’t care, as evidenced by the shirts they wore to the school’s Springfest celebrations last weekend.

Teen Girl Ejected From Prom Because Horny Dads Can’t Stop Staring

A 17-year-old girl says she was kicked out of her homeschool prom because some lecherous dads complained that she was arousing “impure thoughts.”

In a guest post on her sister’s blog, a Richmond, Va., high school senior named Clare related how one of the women organizing the dance disapproved of her dress, even after checking it met the “fingertip length” dress code requirement. When she got into the ballroom, Clare, who is 5’9”, was amused to find herself surrounded by shorter girls in much shorter dresses.

On a balcony above the dance floor, a group of dads was, she said “ogling and talking amongst themselves,” which grossed out Clare and her friends a little bit.

After the kids had been “swaying with the music and talking and enjoying ourselves” for a while, the same chaperone who had complained about Clare’s dress pulled her aside to tell her that some of the dads felt her dancing was “too provocative” and liable to cause “impure thoughts.”

Clare protested that she hadn’t even been dancing, and was told once again that her regulation finger-length dress was too short. She was kicked out of the dance, and her friends decided to go with her.

The dance organizers said they would refund the group’s tickets, but only Clare got her money back, even after some of her friends’ parents called to ask about it.

In her post, Clare asks the Richmond Homeschool Prom to “refund my group as they verbally promised to do, and issue an apology for kicking me out of my senior prom because their husbands felt as though my body was something they had a right to control.”

"I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager," she concludes. "And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem."

The administrators of the prom’s Facebook group don’t seem to be swayed. They got so many negative comments about the incident that they gave up on deleting all of them and shut down the page instead.

Do you think some pokemon evolve by trading because they think you’re giving them away forever, so in their fear of abandonment they evolve into something better than they were so you’ll love them again?
