  1. What? Kids need a reason to skip school now? Probably the lamest reason to skip school ever.

    Skipping school to do drugs and have sex behind the campus dumpster is a better reason than this.

  2. Yea I'm not going to be giving up my guns because a bunch of kids who still giggle when they hear the word "boobies" said guns are bad. Kids are fucking stupid and react emotionally, which is why we don't let them vote.

  3. A lot of these kids are going to hate their parents someday, when all this virtue signaling and attention whoring fails to translate into a meaningful career. The rest will probably rebel and become gun toting neocons.

  4. Your last sentence could describe half the country at least. That's why we have Electoral College.

    Growing up in a household with strict views of sorts always seems to backfire. Marilyn Manson grew up in a religious household and look at what happened to him. His case is hardly unique, same can happen with politics.

  5. Kids are emotional, so it's not a terrible idea to let them vent a little like this. But leading them to believe that this is going to accomplish anything beyond making them feel slightly better in the moment is irresponsible. Yes, by all means, let your voices be heard, but realize that our system isn't run by protest, nor should it be.

  6. They're sick of worrying about getting shot at school. I don't expect teenagers to have a great solution ready but I don't blame them for trying. They are forced to attend school and are right to complain about safety problems.

  7. Kids will be kids, and school sucks. I doubt most of them skipping give a fuck about the agenda message, rather the fact it's a day off.

    With predictions about the majority of Generation Z, the first of which are in college and basically telling liberal professors to go fuck themselves, I'm not too worried.

  9. So elementary kids actually dying in a school shooting didn't get Americans to disarm, but kids vaguely marching around will do it?

    This is purely about the midterms, I am pretty sure.

  11. Let the kids do what they will. These are weird, dangerous times and their environment could turn into a warzone the moment any attention-starved lunatic decides it’s time. Adults who use their problems to further political agendas deserve to be shot though.

  12. I bet you 90% of the people skipping are doing it so they can sit at home and play some more video games on the Xbox or hang out instead.

    A nearby school had some fundraiser style event and you'd get to take a day off if you participated, and you could choose any day. Every kid took it the day the new Call of Duty came out and few kids showed up to class.

  14. Teachers are probably telling kids (specifically those that were "victims") to shut up if they're pro-gun.

  15. Not to mention their TEACHERS' exceptional political agenda.

    Remember when people of all political stripes were in the teaching profession? Yeah, me neither. It's like they're all NDP/Green now.

  17. Just fucking make it a regular school day with regular consequences for skipping, or I'll adopt a kid and demand that he get some time off to go to a protest demanding that America become the 4th Reich.

  19. Maybe 50 kids a year die in school shootings, they're more likely to die of a heart attack in gym class.

    If the media wouldn't be autisticly screeching 24/7 about MILLIONS OF CHILDREN DIE EVERY DAY FROM AK-15s in an effort to fearmonger for ad revenue and push (((their))) policy, maybe they wouldn't be so scared.
