    Link: School Asks Deaf Preschooler To Change His Name - And you won`t believe why. This is the most ridiculous `sticking to the rules` idiocy I have ever heard of.

    The best solution for the child is for the school administrators to get their heads out of their asses. I would walk in, go to the principal, and tell him to F U C K himself until he bleeds. There is no way that these douchetards will be able to legally make him change his name. How moronic.

    PC GONE MAD!! That is happening here too. They are trying to ban Play Doh because it is apparently culturally insensitive to certain ethnicities which are told not to play with food (you know because of the flour in it). They already have banned macaroni necklaces and potato stamps.

    Our country has lost all common sense. Political correctness, the fear of lawsuits has taken over the basic idea of thinking. How do college educated people...grade school educated people for that matter make the leap from a hand gesture to a weapon???

    I`d tell the school administrator that as soon as he is willing to only print his name in Sandscript, I`ll have my son change the language he uses to represent his name. And if you have a problem with that, my lawyer will be happy to talk to you.

    this is going to sound bogus but there is a guy in my county named michael hunt. his mom didn`t think of the fact he would be called mike hunt (it is even a popular joke for ppl who don`t know anyone by the name, like seamore butts). he didn`t have to change his name, it was never even suggested. to even be offended by this kids name in sign language is just inventing new ways to be stupid, and goodness the planet already has enough of those.

    This is utterly ridiculous.
    It would be interesting to see what the schools reaction would be if a kid turned up with deformed hands; specifically if his index finger and middle finger had grown together, and/or his ring finger and pinky finger hadn`t developed. The kid would have a hand that looks "like a dangerous weapon". Would they try to force the kid to have surgery, I wonder. ^^

    The best solution for the child is for any idiot at the school that was pushing, suggesting, or even thinking that the appropriate solution was for the kid to change his name to be run out of town on a rail.
