Melbourne, Australia (Storch Report) — In Nebraska they want to call boys and girls ‘Purple Penguins’ for ‘gender inclusiveness’ and in Melbourne, Australia they want to revise the nursery rhyme “Baa Baa Black Sheep” to infuse diversity into the rhyme so that the sheep can take any form or color that the children wish.
Political correctness has become so infectious today it has spread globally and by the time kids get into high school they will be visiting their local shrink on a daily basis with no vaccine from the CDC to treat them from educators who want to abolish racism and sexism as though it was the black plague — another term that should be deleted from the English language for political correctness.
With the advent of gender inclusiveness and mandating gendered expressions we are neutering everything from boys, girls and sheep while insulting black and white Penguins by coloring them purple.
Baa Baa Black Sheep was penned in the early 1700’s and has been a preschool staple around the world. It actually had nothing to do with racism when it was written, it related to a heavy tax placed upon wool during the 1730’s . And to add another nursery rhyme to the mix of color,”Ring Around the Rosey” related to the Black Plague.
And, so to foster political incorrectness I propose we change the nursery rhyme Mary had a little lamb. It reads,”Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow, And everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go.”
I suggest it now read,”Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was black as coal,” . . . this way I can be politically incorrect on two fronts.
