Don't Kiss Her, Junior,
that Girl Might Be with the ACLU

September 30, 1996

Richard Brian McCarty

Recently a shocking story came to me from Lexington, NC. It was not about one of the hurricanes that had passed through the Carolinas, or about some other tragic event. But, it was about a kiss, and what it can lead too.

It seems that a six year old boy has been charged with sexual harassment by his Lexington, NC, elementary school for pecking a classmate on the cheek. Should the child be corrected if it was inappropriate? Of course. Should the little boy be formally charged by the school district with sexual harassment? No, unless you are one of the poltically correct morons who are in charge of that school district.

One of the activists who supported the school district stated on CNN that young men needed to be taught at an early age how to act. What? Why don't we just find a way to remove their Y chromosome? And, why don't we tell little girls how they should act? But, more importantly, why even make a big fuss over a six year old boy's innocent peck. Should we now consider Norman Rockwell's famous picture of a boy pecking a girl on the cheek as sexual?

What is ironic is the same people who would rally to punish the six year old in North Carolina would be more than happy to point out that a grown man who abuses his wife was probably abused as a child and deserves some amount of sympathy. Or, they would be open to giving furloughs to convicted rapists. The Liberal point of view just offers utter nonsense. In their world, the six year old who makes the peck needs to be trained, and those like Willie Horton, who killed and raped on furlough, need to be understood and not exploited.

Reality demands a different approach. The six year old needs to been seen for what he is--an innocent child. The adult abuser or rapist needs to be put away. But, that is not to come from the Liberal crowd.

And, there are two reasons for that. First, in their minds, they know best how to raise children. Parents are just ignorant folk who can not raise their children without the Liberal's help. Training the children at an early age to think like Liberals is the only way Liberals see them as having a chance to become solid adults. They know best. Everyone else just does not understand.

And, that is because of the second reason. It comes from something my grandfather warned me against--becoming too educated for my intelligence. Educators and sociologists spend most of their free time striving for more degrees. Those degrees lead them to become full of themselves, among other things. It leaves them blind to how the real world works. They see everything through the eyes of the text book; thus you get a six year old getting the treatment that some adults, who deserve it more, do not get. They can control the six year old. They can make their sacred models and theories work.

What I suggest for the school district and its supporters to do is to take a long hard look at reality. I urge them to compare the peck on the cheek to real problems in the world. And then, hopefully, they will see that their educations will be better used elsewhere. Or, perhaps, as my grandfather puts it, they are educated beyond their intelligence and just ain't worth nothing with their degrees.
