I confess to being just a little steamed.
I just read where some hair-brained school administrator in Michigan stricken with the horrifying disease of liberal wussification did not allow some little boy to put toy soldiers on the cup cakes he brought to school. Why may you ask?
Well, toy soldiers have guns and guns are bad. Therefore, toy soldiers must be some kind of bad influence.
This is what happens when liberals start to run the world.
I guess I must be messed up because back in the day (1960’s) my little friends and I played with toy soldiers and toy guns. We must be screwed up given the amount of time we devoted to the “little wars” we fought with our army men and the time we spent playing “army” with our toy guns (and sticks we pretended were guns).
Just about every little’s boy’s dad had served in World War Two. My dad was in the Army as an MP. His best friend was in the Navy, on a cruiser I think. Another friend of dad’s was a B-24 Liberator pilot. My best friend’s dad was in the Coast Guard as part of a air-sea rescue unit. Another friend’s dad was in the Marines. That friend was among the coolest because he had a toy Thompson machine gun and he always got to be the squad leader when we played “army.”
To us, it was quite normal to play army. You were a boy, that’s what you did.
Yeah, back in the day little boys played with little boy toys like army men and toy guns and little girls played with dolls and tea sets but that all started to change when the liberal wussified establishment declared war on “war toys” and American History in the 70’s.
Toy soldiers fell out of favor as did toy guns and little boys started to grow up getting in touch with their feminine side, meaning the liberal wussified of whatever that was supposed to mean.
And now it’s to the point we can’t have toy soldiers in public schools. Just another reason to be for school choice.
