Look out he’s got a peanut!
Obviously everyone went back to school recently(other than the kids in Chicago that is).
I learned that my nephew can’t take any peanut products to school in his lunch because apparently there’s a kid who’s allergic to peanuts there.
Naturally this means no Pb & J sandwiches, so much a staple of lunch I still eat them sometimes. There’s probably a few other things that will be excluded from some kids lunches because of this but it’s mostly the sandwich that’s taking the hit.
How soft are we as a nation that several hundred kids have to accomadate 1 little pissant because he can’t be around peanuts?
Now this is America and no one should be shunned for anything, but no one else should have to be penalized to clear the way for 1 person either.
Not knowing anything about this I looked it up. 1% of the population has peanut allergies. Damn 1%ers hogging all the peanut allergies.
And apparently there is not yet a known cure for peanut allergies. That being the case avoidance is really the only way to deal with the issue.
How then is it legitimately accepted that we have to make ridiculous precautions for 1 kid. If your kid has a known serious reaction to peanuts, to the point that even being in the same building as one is a concern, then why does the kid even leave the house, cause clearly it’s not a world safe for that child.
That’s where we’ll be in a generation or two if we continue this way. We’ll spend our whole lives in robotic lazyboys. Eating, sleeping, it will all be done in the chair. We’ll remain safe in the confines of our hermetically sealed homes.
Just because Johnny’s, wait no kids are named John anymore. Just because Hunter’s mom thinks he has a peanut allergy doesn’t mean he does.
Get full scientific proof your kids a 1%er. Then keep it at home. It’s a lot easier to inconvenience your 1 kid than hundreds of others.
What happened to the saying, “your rights end where mine begin”?
Again this is America and nobody should be shunned for anything, but if anyone has to make concessions it should be the person who has the issue that is being dealt with.
I’m not averse to the suffering of allergies. Though I think most people overblow what are simply intolerances to some particular thing.
I for have a reaction to dairy products. I’m not allergic or lactoseintolerant, I simply have increased symptoms of hayfever when I consistently eat dairy. However if I stop or minimize the amount of dairy i have the symptoms vanish.
Every suburban mom’s tendency to coddle their children and overreact to every single thing is falt out ruining this nations ability to support itself.
Check out this bro here. That’s somebodies grandpa 60-70 years ago. Do you think he’s worried about some measly little peanut causing a rash of his arm?
