Default Deaf 3-year old not permitted to sign his name...

...because school administrators think the symbol he uses looks too much like a gun.

When and where does this ride stop because I'm getting sick.

Some of these look like "Gang signs" that they flash to each other.

I am going to congress......HELL.......THE SUPREME COURT IF I HAVE TO!!!! to change the entire signing alphabet before the possibility some child could be scared so badly it could scar them for life!!!!

If there ever was a WTF!!!! moment, this is it.
THIS insane BS has got to STOP!!!!!

Thats what happens when you let retards ,gays and tree huggers make decisions for the rergular people....even if they do have a handicap.

I'd teach the kid how to sign his name to certain people with a middle finger.\\\


Edit: oooops I see somer of us think alike. I reiterate those who said the same thing before me

Their rule says "device." That implies to me an artifact of some kind, not body parts. I hope nobody tells them about "pocket rockets!"

As to what the sign may resemble they need to consider that almost any sound you can enunciate will probably mean something rude or obscene in one of the thousands of languages in use around the globe.

Well...I hope this solves the problem of all those 3 year olds packing uzi's to daycare.

Seriously.....the youngster looks so sweet....hardly a gangbanger or rowdy youth....and who is going to be threatened..other 3 year olds?

Or the teachers?

Sad that some people can be so blinded by their anti-(fill in the blank) that common sense is no where to be found. Idiots.
