ST PAUL, MN — Local second grader Tim Bumbly has been suspended from Rosa Parks 1619 Obama Elementary for repeatedly misgendering one of the M&M's candies he received in his lunch.
"After multiple warnings, Timmy continued to refer to his green and purple M&M's as 'they' and 'them', when Mars, Inc. has already confirmed they are strong, independent women," said Tim's teacher Franz Zenber (she/her). "For the safety of our student body, we had to remove him from the school as soon as possible. Misgendering kills."
The school board and superintendent backed the decision, confirming the student will be suspended for a period of two weeks and will be allowed to return to classes pending a lengthy round of inclusivity training and testing.
Several parents, however, are outraged by the school's decision. "We understand Timmy's offense was despicable. Misgendering kills, after all. But we feel this punishment is too severe," said one parent in the pick-up line outside the school. The parent has since been reported to the DOJ.
At publishing time, Timmy was allowed to return to school early on good behavior after joining the GSA club in his school.
M&M’s should melt in your mouth, not in the glands.
School Choice -- period.
I know this is a problem; but, no one ever mentions the "teaching colleges" in Universities. What are they "teaching" if this is the low quality of teacher that they are producing.
You know this is satire, right?
I totally agree with her!
Almost had me... 😂
The bee shows the insanity that reigns in schools.
They are gay and lesbian...
You take one out and it might read M&M (Man & Man)
You take another one out and it might read W&W (Woman & Woman)
The BEE is soooo good....
You just turn the first one upside down. No wonder we’re confused.
But I have never seen a M&W (Man & Woman)....*sigh*
Just wait til you see what they do to those little hearts on Valentine’s Day!
Sorry, Bee, if you had picked any one of those I would have continued my headline inspired rage for a couple more paragraphs. All three moved it from satire to farce.
In my defense, reality and satire are now very difficult to separate in our current society.
If it makes a little bit of sense, it’s probably satire. If it makes no sense at all, it’s probably real.
