Absurdity, Squared...

Here is an interestingly shocking concept, a high school suspending three students for using the word vagina. I guess it would be more egregious if they weren't putting on a performance of the Vagina Monologues, at least in that case they can argue the vulgarity is for the sake of art. What really makes this transcend several levels of absurdity is that the school could easily have prevented them from putting on the show in the first place. Then they wouldn't risk permanently harming the students' records and preventing them from getting into college or graduate school. Call it just another symptom of our dumbed down society.
