The Tallahassee Classical School, which is affiliated with a right-wing Christian college, also opposes "pronouns" and the year 1619.
“We don’t use pronouns,” Bishop said.
Barney, please step to the board and diagram that sentence you just spoke.
Not surprised. Republicans reacted to nude statues with less maturity as sixth graders:
Wait til they find out about the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Not only is there nudity, but it's in a church!
“Parental rights trump everything else,”
Unless they have LGBTQI+ children.
I was 6 or 7 years old when DM took me to the ancient Greek art section of the Louvre Museum for the first time. I am sure if I talked about this post with her (she is asleep) her answer would be "Bande d'imbéciles" (bunch of morons).
“We don’t use pronouns,” Bishop said. “We don’t teach CRT and we don’t ever mention 1619"
Pronoun count = 3.
So, the sight of a 1,000+ year old marble penis is "pornographic"?
BTW, I live in upstate NY and yesterday a village just north of me had to evacuate all its schools because a right wing extremist emailed the news media saying they'd planted 2 or 3 pipe bombs in every school building. Why? Because of a book found in the high school library titled "This Book is Gay."
"What you may not have read much about are the school’s ties to conservative Christianity."
Hadn't read much, but had assumed plenty. Turns out my assumptions were right and I wish I had something stronger to pour in my coffee.
I am ashamed to admit it, but I never peed until I was 15. Up to that point, the Pee Fairy removed it. She always left me 5¢ in payment.
"You can show the hands, the arms, the muscles, the beautiful work Michelangelo did in marble, without showing the whole thing."
Did someone just come out?
More importantly, I guess every boy at this school has no idea what that thing is down there that we don't talk about.
Republican forbidden: a penis on an historic work of art. Republican acceptable for their presidential nominee: "They let you grab 'em by the pussy."
This statue is quite big, like five times larger than an average human big. So, this parent is probably jealous of the size.
Yes I’m going there, they deserve it.
I remember in elementary school, my dad volunteered to chaperone a field trip to the art museum with my class. This museum had a marble sculpture similar to David, though quite a bit smaller in scale. When my group got to it my dad stood back to watch how I would react. All the other girls in my group made a big deal about peeking at it and snickering while I just observed the statue. He told me later he was watching and I was very grown up, but really it wasn’t anything to get excited over and we were warned it was coming up.
This is like the woman who flipped out over the Bronco over Mile High Stadium getting cleaned up so she wouldn’t have to explain genitals to her children. How these people navigate the world is beyond me. How does she deal with driving past horse pastures all the damn time? Fuck! People are stupid and childish.
I still remember seeing Michelangelo's David for real in Florence, Italy, during the summer of 1969. Before that time, I had seen pix in a coffee-table book on his works, but to see it in person? WHEW! Breathtaking.
And to think that these jerks in Florida want to get all bent out of shape because sixth graders saw a piece of classic artwork? Just makes me sad (and MAD!) as hell.
And Florida pulls ahead of Texas by a full stride in the race to worse state in the nation.
This is a conservative Florida "classical" school. So the scare quotes are needed. By "classical" they mean dogs playing poker, not Botticelli. "Classical" music means Lynyrd Skynyrd, not Bach. And if the music teacher even mentions Mozart's The Magic Flute, they're getting fired.
"parent's rights trump everything else" 🙄
Including and especially their kids' right to an education.
On an unrelated note, whole bananas will no longer be served in the cafeteria.
