Wonder Woman’s invisible airplane was no match for the bastion of political correctness that is the elementary school classroom.
A concerning letter was posted to Reddit this week by user twines18, which, though lacking in context, is pretty unsurprising in what is now all too common when school returns.
The letter was in response to a lunchbox with superheroine Wonder Woman, who will be celebrating her 74th birthday in December - and still looks pretty good, I might add.
The letter, addressed to parents Daniel and Sarah, reads as follows:
“We noticed that Laura has a Wonder Woman lunchbox that features a super hero image. In keeping with the dress code of the school, we must ask that she not bring this to school.
“The dress code we have established requests that the children not bring violent images into the building in any fashion - on their clothing (including shoes and socks), backpacks and lunchboxes. We have defined ‘violent characters’ as those who solve problems using violence. Super heroes certainly fall into that category.”
The Redditor who posted the letter would not name the school, but said that it was a secular private school.
It’s well established that the left utilizes political correctness as a mechanism of control. And what better place than in the classroom, with a captive audience of impressionable minds?
We’ve seen a Portland, Oregon principal declare peanut butter and jelly sandwiches racist, a Massachusetts principal renaming St. Patrick’s Day “O’Green Day” to avoid offense, countless schools replace Halloween with “Black and Orange Day,” and sexual education curriculums pushing feelings over facts on a regular basis. In the grand scheme of things, the war on Wonder Woman is a pretty meaningless one, except it isn’t. It’s symptomatic of the bigger, more relevant battle eroding - hardly subtly - in the education system across the west.
The irony is that Wonder Woman is everything that the left should love in a hero or heroine.
She may use violence, but she doesn’t use a firearm, which has to be a mark in her favour. Also, she’s a woman: what better poster girl - I mean woman! - for female empowerment than a solo crime fighting babe pilot? Unless the sexual appeal is the problem: we know how feminists are mixed on that.
Maybe the problem is her Purple Ray, the healing device that reinforces stereotypes of women as nurturers. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Her most powerful weapon is her Lasso of Truth, which compels her enemies to be honest. Truth is political correctness’s greatest enemy.
