Won't somebody think of the children?

Won't somebody think of the children?!???!!

As if the various stories we've heard couldn't get any more ridiculous, the BBC has a treat in store for us:

A primary school in Weston-super-Mare has been criticised for banning Valentine cards to save pupils the "emotional trauma" of being rejected.

Children at Ashcombe Primary School were stopped from exchanging cards because the head teacher said they were not emotionally mature enough to cope.

Oh, for fuck's sake.

Peter Turner told parents of the 430 pupils that cards would be confiscated.

Has he had a few "difficult" rejections in his life or something?

So now kids can't be rejected on valentines, they can't compete in competitive races or sports in case they lose, they can't compete in tests in case they fail - what kind of fucking mollycoddled retards are we raising these days?

How the fuck do they expect these kids to cope later in life? Life is shit and it's full of fucking disappointments and rejections. If you're wrapped in cotton wool even at an early age, it can't make these any easier to deal with.

You fucking nannying cunts.

The thing is, the kids feeling 'rejected' will be the ones that don't get a card. So the 'rejection' is purely notional. If other people get a card and you don't, you are deemed to have been 'rejected'. That's the logic. If kids were sending each other cards that said "you are an ugly, gap-toothed ginge, and I wouldn't go out with you if you were the last person on earth, so nerr" I could understand. It's the same logic that says we must find fat people attractive, or we are being hurtful and rejecting them, which will never do. Or (true story) the school that sets the score at football matches back to nil-nil at half time 'to give the losing team a chance'.

Some people are good at things, others are not. Some people are attractive, others are not. If we all learn that lesson at primary school, we'd all be a lot happier in life.

This government will have targets on

Hey Dave..silly article! But that's the media these days. But maybe if you spent more time working, doing something useful you might feel less pissed off with everything. Ever thought of living abroad - you should try it but I bet that would piss you off too!!

I didn't get any Xmas cards from work last year and I'm oh so desperately traumatised (c)(TM).

Maybe they should ban Xmas cards this year. I'll drop it in the suggestion box...
