Sounds Like Someone in New Jersey Needs a Hug

It’s too bad this rule from New Jersey’s Matawan Aberdeen Middle School wasn’t in effect at my school when my grandmother gave me that “Hugs are Better than Drugs” sweatshirt with a teddy bear on it back when I was 12 years old.  If it had been, then I could have blamed stupid liberals for my wise decision to burn it instead of taking the blame myself.

Thanks to this story and Ryan being a New Jersey teacher, I now know that kids at this NJ school can’t hug one another or say the words “gay” or “retarded.” But those rules pose a dilemma for the idiot leftists running the NJ school system.  What if two gay kids decide to hug?  Is that banned or is there some sort of exception?  And in either case, would it be unfairly discriminatory?  I suppose those are legitimate questions.

But I have a better one.  When do these teachers find time to teach things like math, science, and history?

Let me step up the conundrum: what if two retarded gay students decide to hug? Tough one! Maybe they have IEPs (Individualized Education Plans) for that now (through IEPs the state legally bends the rules to fit the kid’s specific needs).

By the way, what’s “math”?
