Sometimes It’s Worth Risking a Fight With a Parent

I’m glad the teacher didn’t let this most unreasonable parent have her way:

A crazed feminist told a second grade school teacher that she hopes she gets beaten on a nightly basis by an abusive husband because she refused to hand out vagina shaped cookies to her class. 

The unnamed teacher asked a friend to post details of the bizarre encounter on her Reddit account. 

According to the story, the teacher regularly invites volunteer parents to cook snacks for her class on a Friday when the children have been well behaved. 

The teacher said the woman arrived at the school and handed over a plate full of treats and said: ‘I decided you can use these to teach the kids about the woman’s vagina today.’

According to the teacher: ‘Baffled and completely caught off guard I slowly peel the aluminum foil off the pan to behold a plethora of sugar cookie and frosting vaginas. 

‘Not just any old vagina, but ALL KINDS OF VAGINAS. There were small, puffy, white, brown, shaved, bald, and even a fire crotch with beef curtains. Perplexed I give the parent the most professional look I can muster and quietly reply “I’m sorry, but I can’t give these to my students. This just isn’t appropriate.”

The teacher said the outrage parent started shouting at her in front of the class of seven-year-old children. She said ‘I should be proud of my vagina and ‘I am settling for a women’s role in life’. 

The feminist, according to the story, shouted the word vagina repeatedly before storming out of the classroom. 

Later that afternoon the teacher received several phone calls and emails from parents wondering how their child learned the word ‘vagina’ while at school.  

Then, the crazed mother sent a series of abusive emails to the teacher, wishing domestic violence upon her.

    This is one parent horror story I hope never happens again. I applaud the teacher for being professional in the face of a crazed parent.

    One outraged crazy parent versus an entire classroom full of crazily outraged parents if the teacher had caved to the bullying? LOL Wise choice, teacher, wise choice!

    Oh goodness gracious! What has this world come to? I once had a parent who came in and abused the teacher in the middle of all our students. Completely unacceptable. Well done to this teacher for standing up!

    Well done to this teacher for standing up to a very rude and inappropriately behaved parent. For too long I have felt that we teachers often have no power. We are continuously asked to back down and be “politically correct.” I once had a student who threatened to sue me if I “laid a finger” on him because I’m actually “not allowed to.” I was in a situation where students could throw chairs and rulers at me yet I can not lay a finger on them. It is completely imbalanced and we need more teachers to stand ground. Our safety and well-being is just as important as that of our students and parents!

    Oh, God, please say that this story isn’t true! Please tell me that the parent was totally refused admittance to that school ever again!
