Hey -- Good News!

Schools across the country -- 5,100 educators from 36 states -- are taking up a “No Name-Calling Week,” a week in which students won’t insult each other about anything – appearance, background, or behavior.

Interestingly, conservative groups object. Guess why?

[The program] has the backing of the Girl Scouts of America and Amnesty International, but a handful of conservative critics have zeroed in on references to harassment based on sexual orientation.

See, mocking little kids is okay, so long as you’re mocking them for being gay and stuff.
