On occasion, a grand politically correct gesture makes sense. There are certain phrases and words that just shouldn’t be uttered. And that whole not saying “Merry Christmas,” but “Happy Holidays” makes sense to some. But sometimes people take their PC-dom way too far. Like opting to call the classic Easter egg a “Spring sphere.” That’s just what one elementary school in Seattle is doing in order to try to appease those who are trying to keep their kid’s existences as religion reference free as possible. But did this school go too far?
One big thing about the name “Spring Sphere”… an egg is not sphere shaped. Oval yes. Sphere no. The school may be trying to teach the children to be non-offensive but in doing so shouldn’t they use an accurate moniker? Couldn’t they call it a “Spring Egg,” or “Eggers,” or “Pastel Plastic Ovals Filled with Candy.”
Do you think these folks in Seattle have gone to far? Or did the educators simply make an uneducated name change?
