A Baby Shower in the Classroom

No kidding. My co-worker's little sister is in 11th grade. She called from school yesterday to tell her big sister (and legal guardian) that her teacher was in the middle of throwing a baby shower for another student during class. Gifts, cake, silliness, all for a 16 year-old who was knocked up.

Phone calls to the school ensued. Big sister is NOT happy with the implied message being given out by the teacher, nor the fact that the curriculum was tossed out the door to celebrate the unfortunate child that will be born to a soon-to-be welfare mom without a baby daddy around.

It's a rite of passage, I guess. The stupid cow gets to quit school and get government money, housing, food. She gets to play "dress up" like real adults!

While real adults pay for it.

Yeah, homeschoolers are a horrible cult of folks for not wanting their kids exposed to this sort of social acumen.

What a f**king carnival. These peeps should be sent to the moon. Wait till she gets arrested in a year from now for wanting to go to a nightclub and leaving the baby home alone. God willing, though, she'll make something of her life.

I'm surprised the child bearing child made it through the gauntlet of margaret sanger worshipers without the blood of murder on her hands. I'm sure they're holding out hope - the baby will be found wrapped in plastic in a dumpster.

GOD willing is right.

PS Spent 31 years at the "f**king carnival". Detested being assigned to put out fires at the HS level. You heard the so and so's pregnant, saw the counselor, gone for a week or two, never were the same. :~(

Better: a Golden Shower in the classroom.

Ick. While I'm all for exposing people to all kinds of stuff, I am against anything that glamorizes young-babyhaving in any form. Waitress, Juno, all that shit in the pop culture is Not Good.

That said, I don't know that it's fair to conclude she's necessarily a soon-to-be-welfare mom (unless you may actually know this from her sis). My brother was born when my mom was 19 and aside from some free government cheese, my mom always pulled her own weight (and more) in society. Not ideal, not to be condoned, but not the end of the world either.
