Mother's Weak Response Regarding School Who Assigned a Boy to Sleep in Bed with Her Daughter Is Part of the Problem
An 11-year-old Colorado girl on a school trip, accompanied by her mother, was assigned to sleep in bed with a boy who identifies as a girl. This, obviously, is both mindboggling and infuriating, yet what concerns me almost as much is the mother’s weak comment to Laura Ingraham during an interview about the matter. After briefly explaining what took place, the mother, Serena Wailes, sitting next to her husband, Joe, transitioned into, “And I just want to point out that we love our principal. We love our school. We love our teachers.” What’s up with that? Why do people who are being wronged, who are being violated, whose child’s safety is being disregarded feel the need to pussyfoot into their justified complaints about the asinine policies being adopted by adults who should know better? Enough of this. If you’re not raising hell over your children, and doing so even in front of the media, where everyone can see that you mean business, you’re part of the problem.
Let me be clear: I’m not suggesting she go in and throw punches at those associated with the Jefferson County Public Schools or even use profanity, but even Jesus overturned tables with righteous indignation when His Father’s house was being dishonored. So when one’s daughter is being dishonored, there needs to be zero tippy-toeing around the issue. These child abusers are bold. Boldness must be met with even more boldness. If they pulled this mess with the mother close by, just in another room, what do folks think they’re doing when parents aren’t around? Moms and dads do not owe allegiance to any school or individual demonstrating disrespect for the dignity of their child. Schools don’t even try to hide it anymore. It’s right in everyone’s faces, and they either dare people to have a problem with it or they act dumb or try to rectify it with dumber measures. In this case, the school reportedly changed the assignment so that the girl did not have to sleep in bed with the boy, but they still had to share the room.
