Growing Movement in Australia to Rename Father’s Day ‘Special Person’s Day’, Schools Adopt New Term

Growing Movement in Australia to Rename Father’s Day ‘Special Person’s Day’, Schools Adopt New Term, by Victoria Friedman.

An ‘early child activist’ wants Father’s Day in Australia to be renamed ‘Special Person’s Day’ to be more “inclusive” to children in “special communities” who do not have fathers.

Australian academic Red Ruby Scarlet, convenor of the Social Justice in Early Childhood Activist Group, told TodayTonight’s host that scrapping Father’s Day in favour of a non-specific ‘Special Person’s Day’ was not political correctness, but about “rights”. …

Host Rosanna Mangiarelli noted that a “growing number” of politically correct schools and kindergartens were adopting the move and asked the childhood activist what kind of feedback she was getting from parents and teachers.

Oh sure. Anything white, male, straight, cis-gender, or Christian has to be demoted and disrespected in identity politics, to boost all the the other groups. All to get lefties into power.

As usual, the activists are given a showcase with well-rehearsed arguments, while a few incoherent “conservatives” are briefly shown with often poorly conceived reactions. There, debate over.
