These Kids Nowadays

Here’s a story about an eighth-grade boy who was told by school officials that he couldn’t wear make-up to school.

The kid’s mom is crying ‘discrimination’ and vows to fight the ruling.


These kids nowadays. Good lord. . .

When I was his age, boys couldn’t even wear hair on their heads where I went to school. Well, just a little, but it couldn’t touch the ears or the collar - - and this was in the 70s!

Girls couldn’t even wear jeans to school until my sophomore year. Can you believe that? Polyester pant-suits, but not jeans.

God, we were ugly back then.

As far as the case with this boy, I don’t see it as a discrimination case at all.
Because if I had a daughter in the 8th grade, and she wore makeup like this to school, she'd be grounded until she was 28, maybe 29 years old.

Girls this age should not be wearing make-up to school.

Well, maybe a little blush and some lip gloss on a special occasion, but that’s as far as it should go.
