Leftists are now waging a war against Mother’s Day, as is the case in an Australian school where the principal decries such a holiday as “offensive” to “non-binary” individuals. The Daily Wire reports:
An Australian school renamed Mother’s Day, calling it “Acknowledgment Day” as the principal stated, “We no longer subscribe to a binary world.”
As The Daily Mail writes of Brunswick East Primary School in Melbourne, “In previous years, the school has hosted a fundraising stall where children could buy Mother’s Day merchandise such as mugs, trinkets, candles and soaps.” But now the stall will be called the “appreciation stall” instead, where children can buy gifts for anyone.
Principal Janet Di Pilla wrote in the school newsletter:
“You will see further in this newsletter a fantastic poster for our first “Acknowledgment Day.” We will be holding 2 of these days each year; one to coincide with the “traditional” Mother’s Day and the other to coincide with the “traditional” Father’s Day. There has been a lot of discussion about the reason we celebrate these days and the naming of the celebration. I believe that days like this are important because we do need to stop and show gratitude for those around us. However, it is also very important that we make these occasions as inclusive as possible.”
Mothers are critical to the rearing of law abiding and productive citizens, and denigrating them does nothing but continue the breakdown of the family.
