The world is a banquet:
“Valentine’s Day is about expressing your unique heartfelt feelings for your special loved one,” blogger Elizabeth Esther told Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. “To just robotically hand out, ‘Here’s your Valentine, here’s your Valentine.’ Like, what are we? It totally removes the meaning, the special memory for the kids.”
“You can’t make life 100 percent fair,” she added. “And why not let them experience a little of that, like, ‘Wow, okay,’ while they’re young and the stakes are low rather when they’re 20 years old and they’re still expecting everyone to give them a Valentines.”
Esther asserted that the children who would not have gotten a Valentine were only getting a “pity Valentine” if teachers required fairness in the classroom.
OK, aside from the pathology that a grown person would think that Mean Girls is a goal to which to aspire, I must wonder about the segment producer that thought this was perfect for the feel-good segment of Petunia and Pals.
