Ugh! U.S. Schools Might Ban the Term 'Best Friend,' Not Inclusive Enough


Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!

Why can’t these Socialists just let people — especially kids — be? For people that are supposed to be “liberal,” they certainly like banning things — words in particular.

The educational system — or as I like to call it, the indoctrination system — is contemplating bringing a practice from a London school in which the phrase “best friend” is banned.

Yes, not only are we possibly getting more banishment of words in the English language, but we’re also getting the continued push for social engineering in the form of political correctness.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Barbara Greenberg is a proponent of the move to ban “best friend” from the youth of America’s lexicon.

“There has been a movement in some American schools and European schools to ban the phrase ‘best friend,'” Greenberg said. “The idea of banning the phrase ‘best friends’ is a very intriguing social experiment.”

Aha! Right there! Did you catch that?! She called the whole thing a “social experiment.”

People aren’t “social experiments.” The only people that think that way are Socialists who try to control people’s thoughts, actions and feelings towards certain things. People are people, and the quicker these Socialists realize that, the quicker they will see the light that Socialism is a very dangerous game to play.

“Let’s face it, you can’t ban somebody from having a close relationship,” Greenberg said, “and you can’t really ban somebody from having a best friend but what the schools are trying to do is foster the idea of kids having more than a single friend.”

I guess the whole point here is that the Socialists feel that the philosophy of having a best friend is exclusionary. But, if one kid is the best friend of another kid — and they really enjoy the time they spend together — then who are these “educators” to tell them that they’re being exclusionary?

Also, just because a kid — or an adult for that matter — has a best friend, it doesn’t mean that person only has one friend. Leave these kids alone! They have enough on their plates, they don’t need the adults to constantly make their lives more complicated with unnecessary structure.
