Parents protest: ‘Our children are too polite’

Parents protest outside the University School of Nashville

NASHVILLE—More than 300 parents gathered outside the University School of Nashville on Friday, protesting against the school’s tendency to train students to become too polite. Wielding a giant protest sign, parent Clarisse Gomez said, “Our children become progressively polite, and this leads to a wide variety of problems. They become mindless twats who don’t appreciate the finer things in life, like music, art, literature, cinematography, and George Carlin.”

School officials later made a short, albeit public, apology on the school’s front steps, stating that “we are sorry that we have not done more to prevent your child from becoming another brick in the oppressive wall of thoughtless euphemisms.”

Dissatisfied, parents loudly complained that their children are no longer able to appreciate the cultural significance of “impolite” or “inappropriate” music such as the rap group N.W.A.’s hit “Fuck the Police,” or to understand pieces of timeless literature. “My child accused me of being a potty mouth when she caught me reading Of Mice and Men,” said parent Joy S. Buck. “‘Oh, shoot, Mom. you shouldn’t read Steinbeck,’ she said to me. He says the ‘F’ word.”
