Australian Teacher Wants to Change Father’s Day to ‘Special Persons Day’

Dr. Red Ruby Scarlet — yes, that’s her real name now — went on television in Adelaide last week to talk about her idea to change Father’s Day to Special Persons Day. The backlash was immediate throughout the English-speaking world, but she stuck to her guns.

    I Blame Hallmark.
    On a different note, she had (has) one; wonder haw that went. He must be so proud…

    “Hey, Sam; isn’t that your daughter on TV?”

    That’s OK if I get to call her mentally retarded.
    No offence to the mentally retarded that were born that way.

    How about “Special Person I Call Dad Day”, or “Fathers’ Day” for short.

      I worked holiday brunches for years.
      Mother’s Day was always fully subscribed.
      Father’s Day not so much.
      Then I became a father.
      And I understood then that it was just leave me the fuck alone day.
      But, don’t change it.
      It’s still my mother fucking day.

        Heh… I’m on your team! Same for my B-Day; No, I DON’T want to celebrate my getting old.

          Hey DaninVan, I read your comments. We’re only separated by geography. Cripes, it’s another sun shower and I have to walk to the store.

        My father had the same attitude, it seems. I celebrated his birthday this year, with cupcakes, and without him as he passed away a few months ago. He’s very much missed.
        I will do the same on father’s day I think, but that will involve alcohol.

        • moraywatson

          Sorry for your loss.

          • Tooth&Claw

            Thank you, I appreciate it.

      As the father of two pretty great kids who have grown into responsible adults, all I have to say to her is, “Fuck off Bitch”.

    Oh please, spare us this horse-shit.

    Couldn’t care less about my Barfday but by God there better be fireworks food booze music plaques speeches ululating and etc on Father’s Day

    • If one’s birthday was on February 29th, I’m sure one would have fireworks! 🙂

      But, seriously – this is the left’s elimination of human uniqueness and all that is masculine.

      Coincidentally, my birthday precedes my father’s by twenty-four hours. A few weeks later, it’s Fathers’ Day.

      Someone gets spoiled. 🙂

    Australia would be better off if a great white shark bit her head off. So sick of all this bullshit renaming, rewriting history, destroying monuments, and gender bending stuff.
