Gelded History

Political Correctness is still alive and well, despite the naysayers. Just when I think it can't get any more ridiculous or funny, it does. Laughing at historians taking some of this stuff serious does provide lots of opportunity to understand and explain their mindset and agenda. From removing flags to removing monuments, the Social Justice Warrior class continues its march to cleanse the American landscape of everything "offensive". Well, not everything. (That one's ok - fits the agenda, don't you know?) History's symbolism isn't the only thing being torn down. The perpetually offended have broadened their sensitivities.

The latest example is the removing of a Kentucky school district mascot - a stallion. No, I'm not kidding.
Superintendent Manny Caulk announced on Tuesday that the high school would get rid of the stallion mascot in favor of a more gender-neutral horse mascot, which he believes will be more appropriate as a symbol for the several female sports teams that Frederick Douglass High School will field.
After reading this story, I was immediately reminded of a C.S. Lewis quote.

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." 

I have a suggestion that might make everyone happy. Keep the stallion, but castrate him. This would make him it gender neutral, right? Make him a gelding for the team mascot.

Go geldings! 

Inspiring, no?
