Go Ask Alice

On Yahoo news you might have seen the blurb called ‘No 'him' or 'her'; preschool fights gender bias’. A little story about a preschool in Stockholm that does not use gender specific language or toys or I suppose bathrooms.

All this is done, of course, in the name of equality. I know many of you are shaking your heads thinking those crazy Swedes and you might even be afraid to read the article knowing that with each step in you will get closer to having your head explode from the onslaught of absurdity. However there was line in the story where the loony grenade went off in their hands. To show how right thinking they are they mentioned a book where you do not need a mommy and daddy just two caring adults, "From a bookcase she pulls out a story about two male giraffes who are sad to be childless — until they come across an abandoned crocodile egg."

I do not know this book but all I could think of was when that crocodile grows up it will eat its parents.

Maybe I'm just projecting reality on to the situation which will always get you twisted up.

"When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said;
'Keep YOUR HEAD'."

I love your blog! I just came across it while searching on "Chestertonian". As for the content of this post, isn't it interesting that the science-based rationalists can't conceive of the possibility that a major chromosomal difference that exists in every cell of your body can produce differences greater than simple reproductive plumbing.

If you get a chance, come on over to The Scratching Post. You'll always be welcome.
