What happened was wrong, but the parents are overreacting. We all bitch and moan about the PC movement, but our reactions, like the actions of the parents here, just do the same kind of thing in a backwards way. The message they are sending to their son is to cry when he doesn't get his way, as bad as it sounds there is an important skill to being able to suffer silently. At work for example we are all expected sometimes to do things we don't want to- the good employee just gets it done.
The message here is you didn't get your way, something bad happened to you, lets make a mess of it.
Talk to the teacher, talk to the school board whatever... make it into a national story and pull the kid out of school etc? Psh, hogwash.
I see it happening with my brother every day and regularly call my parents on it. They are currently working to get him all the "good teachers" next year, on the basis that he has behavior problems and so it will be better for him if he has teachers that are a better fit. Hogwash, what he needs is a teacher who isn't afraid to whoop his ass, and our parents need to not be afraid to support it (figuratively).
Vladimir, I would imagine that if some one tried to shut you up you would raise three kinds of holy hell, and rightfully so.
How can you fault this kids parents of sticking up for his right to free speech.
God and the soldier we like adore,
In times of trouble, not before.
When troubles ended and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the soldier is slighted.

Hope is not a plan, and not all change is good. The resistance is here; the resistance is now. RESIST!
