American Silliness Mar 14, 2017 (Updated)

U. Minnesota drops homecoming ‘King and Queen’ — replaces with genderless ‘Royals’  . . . "Taking it one step further, University of Minnesota officials also point out that the winners don’t even have to be one biological male and one biological female, stating on its website: “‘Royals’ … can be any combination of any gender identity.” 
"Campus officials called the change a move “toward gender inclusivity” that promotes “a spirit of inclusion at the University of Minnesota.”. . . 

High-School Kids Slammed for Wearing USA-Themed Attire to a Basketball Game 
. . . "But that is kind of beside the point. After all, even if every student from a refugee family at that game hated every single thing about this country, that still wouldn’t change the fact that it is completely absurd to be in the United States and expect that you won’t have to see United States–themed attire. "

Update: About That Letter of Apology…  "A few days ago, Valley High School faced off against Des Moines North in an Iowa High School State Basketball Tournament game.
"Valley won that hard-fought game, at least, they won it on the scoreboard…but elsewhere, they lost it big-time.
"You see…it is something of a tradition at Valley High School, that when they play in the state tourney, their fans forego the school’s colors of black and orange, and instead wear red, white and blue as inspiration, cheering on their team to something greater than just a high school behind where the weathermen stands.
"It is Iowa, after all, in the heartland of the nation where patriotism grows like crops in the fields and pride in one’s country is as natural, and normal, as going to the movies on a Friday night.
"It was after their victory in that game, that Valley High School did something…odd…they wrote and sent a letter of apology to Des Moines North High School…not for defeating them in the game, but on behalf of their fans." . . .

California Elementary School Ends Father-Daughter Dance Tradition After A Few Parents Say It’s Not “Inclusive”…  . . . "Officials in a taxpayer-funded California school district have scuttled an annual father-daughter dance — as well as annual mother-son hike — because a handful of parents complained that the event is not sufficiently “inclusive.”
"The father-daughter dance and the mother-son hike had been traditions at Crocker/Riverside Elementary School in Sacramento, reports local Fox affiliate KTXL." . . .
