It’s become painfully obvious that the “progressive,” PC, “social justice warrior” left ruins everything it touches, from sex to the NFL to late night comedy. Now, add to the list the Boy Scouts. Oh, sorry: just “the Scouts.” Having spent the past few years pushing boys to the back of their priority list as they admitted gay Scoutmasters, transgender Scouts and girls, the organization announced last week that it was finally dropping the icky, toxically masculine word “Boy” from its name. This was allegedly a move to make the Scouts more “inclusive,” to help boost declining membership. Well, that sure worked.
The Mormon Church, whose members account for one-fifth of Scout membership, stood by the organization through all the controversies, but this was the last straw. The church announced that it’s severing ties with the Scouts, which could result in a loss to the Scouts of 425,000 members over the next two years. Too bad there’s not a merit badge for Self-Destructive Appeasement.
Speaking of once-beloved things that the PC left has ruined, tomorrow is Mother’s Day. Leftists haven’t ruined that yet, but boy, are they trying hard!
A search of this year’s news on the holiday turns up story after story about various people whining and complaining for the most arcane reasons: Mother’s Day is sexist; celebrating motherhood is exclusionary because it suggests that childless women aren’t deserving of being celebrated for their nurturing abilities; cards that mention the word “mother” are “triggering” to transgender men who had children when they were women but no longer identify as mothers; and on and on and on.
You have to feel sorry for the poor card writers at Hallmark. It’s hard enough to come up with something original to say about Mother’s Day, but now, every single card is expected to cover every conceivable permutation of “gender identity” (of which we now have more than Baskin Robbins has ice cream flavors), yet at the same time say nothing that offends anyone in a world where some people seem to be offended by absolutely everything.
Luckily, the perfect solution already exists: cards that are blank on the inside. Just buy one of those for your mom and don’t write anything on the inside; just give it to her blank. Tell her you didn’t want to offend her. Of course, she’ll probably be offended by that, but what are you gonna do?
