No, I Can't Be It

Good Lord, the sissification is nearly complete.

I'd heard tales of this before, but c'mon, are these kids total pussies?

Red Rover, Red Rover, tag's all over
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - An elementary school has banned tag on its playground after some children complained they were harassed or chased against their will.

"It causes a lot of conflict on the playground," said Cindy Fesgen, assistant principal of the Discovery Canyon Campus school.

Running games are still allowed as long as students don't chase each other, she said.
So what now, they just run in circles? That'll help build up self-esteem.

Actually, it's probably not so much the poor kids, who'll now just be subject to merciless verbal ridicule.
Fesgen said two parents complained to her about the ban but most parents and children didn't object.
So because two parents have issues, a children's game we've all enjoyed for generations now must stop.

UPDATE: Thankfully, someone else noticed this.
