Lunch Break Read: What’s Wrong with a Wonder Woman Lunchbox?

While you are taking a lunch break, be sure to check out Jonah Goldberg’s latest take-down of the selective moral outrage of the left in National Review.

He makes the argument that not all violent actions are created equal, and it’s the intent and the context that matter most. (In other words, he explains why celebrating Wonder Woman is a lot different than celebrating her nemesis.)

Here is a quick preview:

Ridiculous stories about political correctness float around the Internet like so much ocean garbage. Occasionally, one washes up on Good Morning America with a larger story to tell. A little girl named Laura was sent home with a note because she had brought a Wonder Woman lunchbox to school. (The website the Mary Sue first reported the story, from a post on the social-media site Imgur.)

In the letter addressed to Laura’s parents, the school explained: The dress code we have established requests that the children not bring violent images into the building in any fashion — on their clothing (including shoes and socks), backpacks and lunchboxes. We have defined “violent characters” as those who solve problems using violence. Superheroes certainly fall into that category.

That’s true. You know who else falls into that category? George Washington and all the Founding Fathers.
