Father-Daughter Dance Cancelled Over Gender Issues


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A college in NYC has cancelled it's Father-Daughter Dancing. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Mark Thompson, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why. Inform us exactly what you believe in the remark section listed below.

Find out more here:

" A New york city City institution terminated its father-daughter dancing set for Friday as a result of issues it might go against an area addition policy.

The PTA for P.S. 65 on Staten Island abruptly called off the occasion after realizing the dancing might run afoul of a city Department of Education and learning regulation needing gender-neutral events unless there is a certain instructional purpose.

City school authorities claimed the event will certainly replace the dancing with another one following month, however some moms and dads told Information 4 they thought it was a situation of political accuracy gone as well much.

" I believe it's stupid," stated one daddy. "However I presume politicians have absolutely nothing better to do than to politicize day-to-day life."

Another parent claimed he was amazed to read about the termination. One trainee stated her schoolmates had currently gotten outfits for their children before the dance.

And also former Republican mayoral candidate and city councilwoman Nicole Malliotakis claimed in a letter to colleges Chancellor Carmin Farina that the plan was likened to a "ban on every semblance of tradition."

" As opposed to robbing every trainee of the chance to produce a long-lasting memory, the institution system need to rather focus on establishing accommodations should transgender pupils desire to participate in, a feature," she composed in the letter, which was likewise posted to Facebook."

    i’d bet $100 that a grand total of zero trans women genuine actual trans people wanted this event cancelled. but ofc theres going to be power manic people on the left who gonna use our name & draaaaaaag it thru the mud because if they gonna shut something down it might as well be those damn trannies amirite. we got bigger problems out here than some dance. actual trans folk, not far left jerkoffs.

    This gives the right ammo. Whenever I have one of my right wing friends about to come to sanity, I see this coming from the left. We can’t claim sanity on the left when lefty schools do this.

      Geometry Dash Kenaz lol they created safe spaces because they couldn’t stand letting conservatives have their free speech on liberal campuses..

      claiming hate speech isn’t free speech

      the conservatives always ask what is hateful in what they say.

      I think many on the right who so adeptly point out leftist insanity and wonder why more don’t hop the fence forget about all the ‘Jesus is my flu shot, send me prayer money to make money, evolution is a lie and the earth is flat cuz the bible says so’ wingnuts standing behind them that they’ve learned to tune out. No side has a monopoly on stupidity.

      It’s BS like this why the left is losing and most of the county thinks us liberals are a bunch of wacko lunatics.

    • Posted by kahmaal14, at Reply

      Gay Bottom Pride well to be fair, the majority of liberals ate left thinking, thanks to Obama and the media.. us conservative leaning libertarians exist too.

    • Posted by Gay Bottom Pride, at Reply

      I think the majority of liberals are moderates who are center left like myself. It’s these radical far left lunatics that are doing stupid BS like this that are giving us a bad rep.

      Yeah, the “it’s not gross, you’ve a dirty mind!” folks mostly probably found Trump’s admitted semi/full attraction to his daughter to be gross.

    • Posted by Edward Bernayse666, at Reply

      not to little girls who love their daddies. was your dad around as a girl? do you like your daddy? 😀

    It’s a FATHER DAUGHTER dance. If a child doesn’t want to go because they don’t identify as female, fine, they don’t go.
    I’m amused that this is an issue now because of trans issues and people that can’t decide. Why has it never been brought up that there was no mother son dance? That’s equally exclusionary and covers more that 3% of the population.

    • Posted by Will Nottel, at Reply

      Damn, I kinda figured there was, it just makes sense to have both :
      That’s pretty sad.

    • Posted by Edward Bernayse666, at Reply

      no boy is going to want to go to a mother-son dance. lol anyways there’s nothing wrong with not fitting into certain groups or events. that’s life for you. it should and normally is character building to feel like an oddball at times around certain groups of people growing up. now the schools want to take that away? if someone can’t handle that then the problem is a lot deeper and more serious then just some symptomatic …….that kid would seriously need some therapy because for whatever reason, they have no inner strength at all.

  5. Posted by Blue Wolfe, at Reply

    I’m Trans but seriously? I think it should’ve just been called “Parent-child” dance. It would’ve made things easier, and they wouldn’t have had to feel the need to shut it down. They wouldn’t have to waste time on debating who should or shouldn’t be able to go. What a waste of time!!!

    • Posted by Princess Ameatia, at Reply

      marlon alston I dont think you know what its about either. Unless you mean the creepy tradition it came from of demanding your daughters chastity until marriage and making her promise to do so by the exchange of rings. What a grand tradition!

    • Posted by Megan Henderson, at Reply

      marlon alston wtf do you care what is in someone pants so much??? hell you wouldn’t know if someone was trans just by looking at most of em. jesus, grow up, accept people are different than you, and move on in your life.

    So what do girls who lost their fathers do, stand there awkwardly like lemons while they’re barred from going to those dances with their mothers instead?

    Make it a parent-child thing and let the sons and mothers join in too, there, problem solved!

    • Posted by OneRandomVictory, at Reply

      I highly doubt they would bar the mothers from dancing with their child too

    • Posted by Dill Rogerz, at Reply

      They do what they’ve been doing for the last half a century of father daughter dances being a tradition.

    Wait, Cenk and Ana don’t agree with this? Oh how the turntables……

      That’s what I was thinking. I was honestly really surprised.

    • Posted by DicedTulips, at Reply

      The Young Turks Critique Channel I feel like if you watch them, you would expect them to think this way about this story.

    • Posted by Edward Bernayse666, at Reply

      part of me doesn’t like the idea but for different reasons listed. i figure that some of these girls don’t have their daddies around which of course would exclude them. that would be something to make a little girl cry and feel bad about herself. just not for any superficial reasons listed in not fitting in with the other little girls who have their dads in their lives. it would be simply because they got an insensitive reminder that they are being raised without a daddy.

    Pfft easiest fix in the world. change it to parent child dance and carry on. Adapt and overcome

    Men need to act more like men and women need to act more like women.

    • Posted by Melly Kidd, at Reply

      That wouldn’t work, with how the human brain is built; each section of the brain can have a male or a female attribute, but leas than 8% of humans have a fully male or a fully female attributed brain. The remaining +94% have brains that are varying mixtures of male and female attributes. You’re basically telling people to go against how they were made. XD

    This kind of development has nothing to do with a progressive policy. That’s completly totalitarian agenda based solely on moral blackmailing by a agressive minority.

    • Posted by Titus Orelius, at Reply

      Regressive Liberals.

    • Posted by NoNameTheFirst, at Reply

      Except for the progressives who are in favor of this kind of policy, but let me guess, they aren’t “true progressives”

    • Posted by Edward Bernayse666, at Reply

      it’s also trying to stunt the kid’s independent development. nobody is supposed to fit into every group or event. that’s life for you. it’s even weirder to me because i would think that some of the girls don’t have their daddies around and they would be the ones who feel bad and not a boy who thinks he’s a girl. anyways there are constantly things that will come at people that will make them feel like an oddball and so for schools to try to do the impossible by trying to make EVERYBODY feel included is futile, stupid and really does the kids a disservice. it teaches them that they should try to conform and adapt to the conventional, conformist way of doing things without thinking. that’s the kind of thing that will set them off course with a broken compass in life.

  11. Posted by Darthmufin, at Reply

    You can’t call it “gender issues” if there is no issue.

    • Posted by Edward Bernayse666, at Reply

      what’s weird is that they use the whole “gender issues” BS argument. i would think that some of these girls don’t have their dads around. a dance like that is going to make them feel bad but not because they feel like they don’t fit in with the other girls at their school. it would be simply because their dads aren’t around and they would be getting a friendly reminder of that fact.

    I’m a liberal, but it’s starting to get out of hand, and this is a perfect example of that. This is why Trump won. We need to find balance.

    • Posted by Melly Kidd, at Reply

      Ehh…Trump’s not for balance, from what he’s done so far. America is so unbalanced that they’ve never been as close to another civil war as they are now, and so out of hand that it’s like a repeat of the cold war, but with North Korea instead of Russia. Hawaii is doing nuclear war drills for crying out loud, and they’re not the only place. Puerto Rico, a US territory, is in ruins with any hope of actual help from the mainland pretty much void at this point, the weak health care system America had is going down in smoke bit by bit with no real plan to build it back up but a bunch of vague boasts, he supports the disastrous mistakes the police force keep making, war efforts overseas are apparently now turning towards conquering foreign land with oil for America’s usage, increased xenophobia and nationalism is hurting their tourist industry, he insults almost every other world leader he meets, research towards cleaner energy is being scrapped in favor of increasing the drain on natural resources and adding to pollution for bigger bucks for the rich, America is now being left out by other leaders on discussions on the world’s economy because they feel Trump has nothing worth adding, and their debt is looking to go up even higher instead of down, with all the expensive stuff Trump keeps requesting.

      Trump barely won at all, and he didn’t win in popularity. In fact many people voted for him because they hated him, but hated crooked Hillary much more. Hate to be brutally honest with you, but Trump won because he could lie better than her on stage, was a TV star, and many considered him the lesser of two evils. Add to that, he’s reversed almost every promise he made and done the opposite, while making things worse and worse for the middle and especially lower-class citizens. Canada, a major ally and trade partner, is even preparing to cut America loose and trade with other countries should things continue to go south. So…where is this balance?

      Examining the facts, it’s much more like he’s shoved his hand down on the opposite side of the scale, tipping the whole thing over. Then bragging cheerfully about how it’s never, ever been as balanced as it is now while the scale lies on it’s side on the table.

      Lol the writings and research on this are much, MUCH longer. That’s merely a summary, and doesn’t even summarize everything!

    • Posted by Ryan Carroll, at Reply

      Its the same with union rights, the backlash against too strong unions etc things have a natural elasticity to them, they eventually go too far and people scream “ok enough enough!” and you’ve found the line, it’s a natural process.

      I think what started as a commendable concern for peoples feelings, bullying, depression and mental health, sexual harassment, and respecting peoples personal freedom around sexuality…is starting to reach that point now, it’s starting to take the piss and become a parody of itself – were nearly at that line.

      Parent-child dance defeats the intent of the dance. Father-Daughter Dance is fine, just say that father-figures and daughters daughter-identifying are invited to blah blah blah.

      You can literally complain about anything not being inclusive. I mean, this dance explicitly excludes sons. But, what about the students w/o father figures. The school isn’t being inclusive. And the agenders. Are we really going to go through this BS of making sure that we have an infinite number of events for the ever-increasing number of identities?
