Who could have seen this coming … elitist institutions in elitist, leftist-led cities have now decided it’s appropriate to cancel Mom and Dad. Literally.
And Grace Church School, which comes with an jaw-dropping annual tuition of $57,000 per year, has decided that the most important things for students to learn, just after schools have barely reopened, is about the effective dissolution of the nuclear family, a core “principle” of BLM.
“Families are formed and structured in many ways. At Grace Church School, we use inclusive language that reflects this diversity. It’s important to refrain from making assumptions about who kids live with, who cares for them, whether they sleep in the same place every night, whether they see their parents, etc.”

Wow. How about it is “important” from schools to nose around into that sort of information in the first place. How about sticking to the basics, like mathematics, writing, vocabulary, and, dare it be said … civics and history?
Nope, apparently at this ultra-exclusive school, “gender inclusive language” is apparently the greatest skill that America’s youth need to develop. Because that skill is so clearly in demand across the world’s increasingly complex operations (not).
“Using gender inclusive language can provide critical affirmation to students across the gender spectrum.” [Source: The Blaze]
No surprise that when it comes to Democrats, “inclusive” of course must be accompanied by every possible variant of gender out there, all of which are likely invented by utterly out of touch professors dependent on massive tuition fees from Chinese students to retain their largely useless jobs.
Unfortunately, those same jobs have resulted in the gendered nonsense that multiple millions of Americans are repeatedly subjected to on a daily basis. And, apparently now in “guides” for students, their parents, and school employees.
Including convenient “bullet points” regarding “inclusive” language, as seen below.
- Instead of saying, “mom and dad,” say, “grown-ups,” “folks,” “or family.”
- Instead of saying, “parents,” say, “grown-ups,” “folks,” “family,” “and guardians.”
- Instead of “assuming gender based on stereotypes,” people should “respectfully ask how they identify if familiar establishing a culture of sharing affirming pronouns in class.”
- “If someone articulates sexual orientation is a choice rather than an identity,” respond by saying, “who we love/are attracted to is part of who we are.”
- Instead of saying, “diverse/minority,” say, “person of color, marginalized identity/population.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Great. So, the school effectively wants to cancel “Mom” and “Dad,” a cancellation that frankly defies any type of explanation, given how insane it is. Geez, how many times did Barack Obama refer to his daughters and his daughters, for instance? And, as he, and everyone else, should be able to do!
Plus “articulates a sexual orientation?” Is this school aware that the vast majority of its pupils are well under the age of 18? Exactly how, and why, would “sexual orientation” need to be discussed at all in a school’s curriculum?
And now the word “diverse” is apparently offensive?! Instead, children should say the (much lengthier) “person of marginalized identity?” Who on earth dreams up this stuff, and, more importantly, who pays for this nonsense to be drilled into their own children’s heads?
So, that’s a $57,000 per year education? Great expenditures, coastal “elites.”
George Davison, the administrator of the school, predictably defended his school’s insanity with the following statement.
“At Grace we understand the power of language both to include and to cause alienation. We also know that it is our job to give community members resources to allow them to make informed and generous choices …
So if the boorish ‘cancel culture’ press wants to condemn us a newly dubbed ‘Woke Noho’ school of politeness, dignity and respect, then I embrace it, and I hope you will too.” [Source: The Blaze]
Thank you, Pelosi 2.0.
Do us a favor, Mr. Davison … Stick to your ultra-rich, ultra-leftist parents who apparently think paying nearly $60,000 per year only to have their own children “cancel” them is a good idea … And never, ever consider running for public office …
