A woman in her late 30s was planning on throwing her daughter a very small party for her ninth birthday. But when news broke that she was only inviting four kids, the school got involved, and she was accused of discrimination.
Her Daughter Was an Introvert
The woman said, ‘I have a daughter who is a shy, bookish introvert.’
She Wasn’t Very Popular
Her daughter wasn’t very popular at school, preferring to read at the library rather than attend social events and gatherings. So, when her ninth birthday rolled around, the woman planned on doing what they did every year: something small with her four friends.
Her Classmates Weren’t Very Nice
Her daughter was in a class with 30 other kids, many of whom the woman hadn’t heard very nice things about. Apparently, they didn’t treat her daughter very kindly, so the woman didn’t think twice about not inviting them to her daughter’s birthday celebration.
Her Daughter Never Had a Party
The woman would celebrate her daughter’s birthday every year by taking her and her friends out for ice cream. It was a tradition by now. Her daughter had never had a big party and didn’t seem to ever want one.
They Were Not Rich
Although the woman was not poor, she also didn’t define herself as rich. They lived in a small apartment, and the most she could do for her daughter’s birthday was go out for ice cream and possibly pay for an activity such as painting ceramics. So when she received a scolding email from her daughter’s teacher about her up-and-coming birthday party, she was shocked.
She Was Not Being Inclusive
One day, the woman received an email from her daughter’s teacher accusing her of deliberately not inviting members of her class to a party she was hosting. There was a rumor that she was throwing a party for her daughter, and the teacher was receiving emails from angry parents whose kids felt left out.
She Couldn’t Afford it
The woman was stunned. To make matters worse, her daughter was accused of being a bully for only inviting her closest friends to celebrate her birthday. The teacher demanded that she invite everyone to join in the celebration. But the woman couldn’t afford to host 30 kids!
They Were Harassing Her
She tried to tell the teacher that she wasn’t having a party, but a small get-together of her daughter’s closest friends. But she soon began to receive angry emails from parents, asking why their kids were not invited. It was a lot of pressure, and she was even accused of discriminating against one child.
It Wasn’t Fair
The woman said, ‘One even accused me of discriminating against their son because he has asthma.’
Was She in the Wrong?
After ten emails, the woman started to wonder whether she should have a party and invite her daughter’s entire class. Surely, that would put an end to the complaints? But her daughter might not even enjoy it, and it was supposed to be her day. The woman asked the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘I wonder if the teacher is encouraging the bullying rather than discouraging it.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘These people are entitled hypocrites!’
A final commenter was amused, ‘I was not expecting you to be accused of discriminating against someone with asthma. Sorry but that’s so absurd… it’s hilarious.’
