    Re: Political correctness run amok - 3 year old asked to change name

    He wasn't asked to change his name. He was asked to change how he signs (as in sign language) his name.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    I must say I got a little resistance when I signed my son up for kindergarten, all of a sudden Bazooka McBomberson 3TrueFans isn't an "age appropriate" name now.

    Oh well, that makes all the difference. Mods, can we change the spelling of his username to CloneAge because I don't like A&M and hate the word Aggie??? Thanks in advance. After all, it's all in how you pronounce it...

    Fair enough, but to a kid who has learned his name and doesn't hear, it would be the equivalent of you being asked to change your name from CloneAggie to C-L-O-N-E-A-G-G-I-E. You need to spell it rather than say it every time. What kind of message is that sending to the youngster (a three year old!) about him as a person?

    I wonder how a kid named Gunner would sign his name?

    Re: Political correctness run amok - 3 year old asked to change name

    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”
