At McMahon, political correctness has been visible for some time, as we’re a school that takes pride in diversity and inclusiveness. When President Trump was elected in 2016 Pride Time ran pieces on the fearfulness of students, and fights that erupted the morning after.
During the first holiday season of his presidency, Trump promised to bring back the use of ‘Merry Christmas’ alone.
And while Chris certainly isn’t alone in thinking this way, there certainly is counterweight within the student body, as was expressed through the view of former Class VP Jackson Dino, “for article’s purpose I would probably print Happy Holidays, but I really don’t see anything wrong with saying Merry Christmas”.
The debate rages on, in a society where polarization plays an increasingly crippling role in how we all get along - where do you stand? Comment.
Let’s hope it leaves the holidays alone, and lets us get back to what truly matters this time of year - fighting with relatives and Iphone x’s.
