Ba Ba Rainbow sheep

Dont you hate Political Correctness. I do. Well looks like the PC patrol is out and about. There advising kids to say Ba Ba Rainbow sheep instead of black sheep. They are also adivising to change humpty dumpty and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

"Dont you hate Political Correctness. I do."

Yes,

and what is so frightning is that so many
seem to be so willing to follow this to where it will eventually end:

totalitarianism.

It's your New World Baby!

I suppose I dislike attempts at enforced social conformity, Justin, but I can't help but notice that you always pick the most trivial examples of this phenomenon. I have my doubts that this actually happened, sounds a bit like the 'war on Christmas' to me, if you know what I mean.

TRADITIONAL nursery rhymes are being rewritten at nursery schools to avoid causing offence to children.
The first line says it all. We are too worried about how children will feel instead of teaching them to think.
