“Political Correctness is ruining America” [Darleen Click]

Elizabeth Bierenday, a junior at Pilgrim High School in Warwick, was asked to create a mural for the school.
She sketched a mural that showed the growth of a boy into adulthood. The last image showed a man with a woman and child and wedding rings over their heads.
Bierenday showed the school’s assistant principal the sketches, which were approved.
Bierenday said she started to paint the mural last week, when an assistant principal came to her with a problem.
Some people at the school felt the mural didn’t accurately represent many students at Pilgrim and school officials decided to paint over the right side. [...]
On Friday, Bierenday spoke with John DePetro on WPRO-AM about the mural and said she was told that her original design may be offensive or a religious symbol.
Schools who want an image to represent every student take a class photo and frame it on a wall.
But, of course, the “accurately represent” is not the real problem. Note no one is “offended” it depicts a boy when so many students are girls, nor offended by the pallor of the boy, nor by his choice of childhood activities (OMG piano players might be offended he is shown playing a guitar!) What “offends” is the depicted ideal of a child growing to aspire to marriage and children.
And the family unit of two opposite-sex, biological parents, raising their own children is a threat to Big Nannystate Government. Every measurable has demonstrated how Western marriage benefits the individuals involved, so the hostility towards it from all factions of the authoritarian Left comes from the realization that marriage stands in the way of its goals — creating a herd population depended on Government.
So what’s wrong with bullying a 17 year old student artist when such a Glorious Future is to be had?
