Dad goes viral after blasting his daughter’s school for controversial move
Do you agree with him?
What an interesting day for this story to come into our lives.
A frustrated father has written a letter to his daughter’s school infuriated at their old school view on children’s excursions.
Dubbo West Public School’s newsletter read:
“Our Year 6 Boy’s and Girl’s day will again take place on the Monday 11th December as our girls are treated to fabulous hair and light make-up.
“The boys will not be left out, going to Bunnings, activities and a BBQ lunch.”
The New South Wales father wrote to the principal in a letter he later posted on Twitter.
“I must draw your attention to a serious incident.
“When Ruby left for school yesterday it was 2017 but when she returned home in the afternoon she was from 1968.
“I know this to be the case as Ruby informed me that the ‘girls’ in Year 6 would be attending the school library to get their hair and make-up done on Monday afternoon while the ‘boys’ are going to Bunnings.
“Are you able to search the school buildings for a rip in the space-time continuum? Perhaps there is a faulty Flux Capacitor hidden away in the girls’ toilet block?
“I look forward to this being rectified and my daughter and other girls at the school being returned to this millennium where school activities are not divided sharply along gender lines.”
This is absolute gold.
News.com.au contacted the father of three daughters:
“I don’t want to make a huge fuss ... this is mainly to point out everyday sexism.
“We’ve still got a long way to go in this area.
His daughter Ruby “was affronted that she wasn’t given the choice” and “very indignant that only the boys had the Bunnings option.
“Yes the boys should be given the hairstyle choice too but girls and women still bear the brunt of thoughtless sexism.”
What a great Dad to look up to!
