For Today in Cupcakes and Snowflakes we go to Battle Creek, Michigan where the PC police have again gone way too far. A middle school substitute teacher named Allison Wint says she used a “dirty, horrible word” in front of eighth grade students and was promptly FIRED.
Sad! This is why we need robots to each our kids. Robots don’t complain and work cheap!
What sort of sordid filth did she bring into the classroom? Miss Wint says that during a class discussion on art history featuring the work of noted American painter Georgia O’Keeffe she uttered the word “vagina” while describing some of O’Keefe’s famous flower paintings:
I’m no art critic, but yeah that is definitely a vagina. Wint admits that during the class she told the students:
“Imagine walking into a gallery when O’Keefe was first showing her pieces, and thinking, ‘Am I actually seeing vaginas here, am I a pervert? I’m either a pervert or this woman was a pervert.’ ”
So, are you a pervert?
Not sure what ya’lls’ vagina looks like but if it looks like this you might want to see a doctor.
It is fair to say that the O’Keefe paintings looking like gaping V’s. However the PC Police acted swiftly and viciously. School principal Kim Thayer told Wint the next day, that she had “used the term ‘vagina’ without previous approval” violating strict school policy.
She said “vagina” to your children!
Maybe the teacher’s union will go on strike and shut the whole school down until she is reinstated? Nah, she’s just a sub with no tenure who gets paper airplanes thrown at her head when she’s facing the chalkboard. The good news is nobody is going to have to sit through a Drama Club performance of “The Vagina Monologues” this year.
Spared from hearing the word vagina in these halls.
Weirdly this is not the first time the people of Michigan have had an issue with the V word. Four years ago a State Representative was barred from speaking in session after saying the word “vagina.” She tweeted her support of the teacher:
Wint says the kids giggled when she said vagina, but other than that they had a good conversation about the paintings. No need to lock her up in PC jail!
What do you think? Was it OK for the teacher to say vagina during an art history class for eighth graders? Or is this another instance of political correctness gone to far?
