“Why? Honestly, why? I think dress codes are a good idea, as long as they aren't draconian and are completely reasonable. Some outfits just aren't school appropriate.”

Basselope on Jun 1, 2014 at 02:11:09

“What "outfits" are those and who gets to decide? It's just another form of nonsensical control with no purpose. What "outfit" is going to inhibit learning? If your child's learning is going to inhibited by an "outfit", then if you take away the "outfit" they going to find something else to be inhibited by.. and if you take that away they will find something else.

I remember, when I used to work for people, I would be told how I had to dress for work and so often the rules made no sense. I had a summer temp job entering checks in a database was I was in school. Sitting in a back room entering data in a computer. They wanted me to wear a shirt and tie. After a couple of days, I showed up in jeans and t-shirt. They gave me a talking to. I showed back up in jeans and a t-shirt. They threatened to fire me and I asked them if they could get someone to do the job as quickly and efficiently as I did it... I continued to wear jeans and a t-shirt for the rest of the summer. Sometimes even shorts.

As you grow up you learn there are times when dressing a particular way matters, important meetings, going to court, and other times, when it doesn't mean diddly.. sitting behind a desk not meeting clients. School is like the latter. Why teach silly lessons when there are important ones actually worth teaching?”

“My comment regarding an inverted crucifix was not to assert it was the unilateral symbol of satanism but rather as a symbol that is counter to and offensive to Christianity. I'd also like to point out that LeVeyan Satanism is not the only form of Satanism "on the market" so to speak and many of said other Satanist do hold the inverted crucifix as part of their iconography but I'm not one to knit pick either ;)”

“It is kidnapping. A man who had no custodial right took a child by force from his mother and left the area.”

mgman on Mar 8, 2014 at 01:14:44

“That depends...custodial interference, not kidnapping applies if the father had visitation rights...something the article does not address. It's only a kidnapping if the father was prohibited from contacting the child and had no visitation rights. Of course laws vary from state to state but this is a pretty good summary: http://www.andrewfarmerlaw.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=12:how-is-custodial-interference-different-than-kidnapping&catid=3:faqs&Itemid=4

“"Most fashion dolls on the market are dressed like princesses or wear funky outfits,"

Cause that's what little girls want to play with? When I was a girl, I went for the Barbies with the obnoxiously pink and sparkly dresses, I wanted to play with a princess. These new dolls seemed to be aimed more at parents than kids. I never looked at a Barbie and thought, "Why can't I be her?", she is a doll, an inanimate object, and certainly not something I looked up to as a child.”

“If genetics are such a big deal to you, then research what pit bulls were originally bred for. They didn't earn their nickname of 'nanny dog' by eating the mail man (unless of course he looked at the child cross eyed).”

Was keepalowprofile on Mar 2, 2014 at 18:46:22

“Oh boy, That is my exact point.
in the late 1800's the dogs were originally bred for family dogs, keeping a watchful eye over the children and wife. Often as a sporting event the man of the house would take that very dog out for a night of drinking, dog fighting and betting. These were not fight to the death fights, they were controlled and a winner would be declared long before death or major injury. (this is the genetic part, pay very close attention) The owners had to call off their dogs when the fight was over, If the dog didn't stop when called or tried to bite the owner when he put his hands on the dog, those dogs were put down, If they showed any sign of human aggression they were put down and not bred. Later around the 1970's these types of dogs were sought after for protection by drug dealers and gangs. They were for protection and status. Only they encouraged the ill behavior and bred for the aggression. Genetics play a factor in all living things.
Appearance, health, longevity and temperament. In dogs, none of that happens by accident and good breeder will breed for those qualities. ps as romantic as it sounds the term "nanny dogs" has NEVER been documented. Its a phrase that was coined in the last 20 years. I like it and it sounds good but it has never been historically documented.”
