NY Bans Being A Kid... The Pussification of America Is Complete




NY Daily News
– State bureaucrats have identified a potentially deadly hazard facing our children this summer – freeze tag. That’s right, officials have decided the age-old street game – along with Wiffle Ball, kickball and dodgeball – poses a “significant risk of injury.” And classics like Capture the Flag, Steal the Bacon and Red Rover are also deemed dangerous in new state regulations for day camps. “It looks like Albany bureaucrats are looking for kids to just sit in a corner in a house all day and not be outside,” said state Sen. Patty Ritchie (R-St. Lawrence County). “I don’t think Wiffle Ball is a dangerous sport.” The Health Department created a list of supposedly risky recreational activities – which also includes more perilous pursuits like archery, scuba and horseback riding – in response to a state law passed in 2009. Kimberly Baxter, 27, a medical assistant from South Ozone Park, Queens, said she played freeze tag with abandon as a youngster. “I never got hurt, maybe scraped my knee once in a while but that was it,” said Baxter, mom to a 1-year-old girl. Deborah Graham, 51, a mother of two from Harlem, said moving around was less harmful than playing video games all summer. “You could develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,” she said. “And when (kids) eat, eat, and eat, they get diabetes. That’s dangerous.” While many New Yorkers scoffed at the idea of tag leading to traumatic brain or spinal injury, Bronx resident Kim Wainwright said it’s better to be safe than sorry. “Kids these days are kinda brutal so I can see those games being dangerous,” said Wainwright, who has a 5-year-old. “I agree with it.”


I can't count how many career ending freeze tag injuries I saw as a kid. Dodgeball...forget about it. What ever happened to the days when you weren't really having fun until someone went home bleeding or crying? It's sad the kids today will never know how much real fun, and life experience they could be having.

what's wiffleball

society is fucking stupid for overprotecting children, they dont get smacked anymore and you see them behaving worse and worse as a result. and it makes it easier for these kids to pick on the over protected ones. and then the school turns a blind eye to the resulting bullying. it's all bullshit

It is scary how much big brother is starting to pass down the laws controlling what we do, say, eat, drink, etc.

I am going to let my kid be a kid and a part of it is playing and possibly getting hurt.

Re: NY Bans Being A Kid... The Pussification of America Is Complete

The town built the local rink at the public school in the small town where I grew up. All we had on were skates, no helmet or pads and you allways got a bruise or two when you got hit with the puck. I got a stick in the head once, above my left eye, still have a bit of a scar in my eyebrow. Went to school, they put a band aid over it and I went back to play.

Kids are so wimpy nowdays!

Re: NY Bans Being A Kid... The Pussification of America Is Complete

It's really upsetting. Scrapes, bruises and broken bones are part of growing up. You have to learn how to fall, how not to get hurt and how not to cry like a bitch when you do. My daughter jumps off everything, I let her. We have great insurance.

I don't want my daughters to be fat wimps. lol.
