Don't get me wrong -- getting new people in here would be GREAT. THe more the merrier. BUt only so long as the new people are actually, well, merry. At least to some degree.

There's an unwritten protocol for joining already established groups on the internet (says someone who's been online for 18-19 years now). You lay low, stay neutral, get a feel for the vibe and the personalities. But this guy just came out swinging (starting with Race) and hasn't let up.

I like interacting with new people. With a few exceptions, most of y'all are idiots!

Pretty presumptuous. In actuality, assuming I had a family member with a severe allergy, my opinion would not change one bit.

This.

This group has been around a long time now, too (thanks to Andie) and we've had people come and go over the years (myself included)and we've always welcomed newcomers that added to the group and made things more interesting and fun. But this time, we've been sorely disappointed.

Hey! Where's my coffee!?!

Just kidding Redhead ;) I like your post, as I've been reading, but don't want to step on any toes, and just kinda getting the lay of the land here.

I find the allergy topic an interesting one, and clearly emotionally charged. I think, and this is just hypothetical, that if I had a child who was that at risk, I might consider home schooling her/him. I know there is still a need for involvement in social activities, but those environments might be more easily controlled, with less chance of exposure to peanut products. A severe peanut allergy is so frightening. My heart goes out to any parent managing that risk.

What about the vegan kids? Nuts and similar foods can be a major source of protein for vegans. Should they be forced to modify their diet because they go to school with someone with allergies?

You obviously have reading comprehension issues. I'm so sorry. Your mom must be really proud of you being able to use the internet with your intellectual disabilities.
I think it's STUPID to tell an entire school they can't have pb&j sandwiches in their lunches because a kid MIGHT be allergic. Now, if there's a kid in school who has a serious allergy that is so bad, he can't be in the same room with a pb&J sandwich, then fine, make a rule.
But until then, no school has any business banning them just to be "safe." It's on the parents of the allergic kid to make the school aware.
Now go away. YOu're not wanted here if you're just going to be such an idiot.

If your allergy is so severe you can't be in the same room (and many of those have been overdone and not true), the onus is on YOU to protect.
I am in the largest middle school in our district; asking over 1600 kids not to eat something because 1 can't is ludicrous.

No one had allergies years ago, then now we do. I know a lot aren't on the anti-vac train, but note many vacs are suspended in peanut oil....then the allergies kicked in. Something to research.

Veganism is a choice! Peanut allergies are not!

Vegan kids can eat a lot of stuff, they can live without peanut butter. most crunchy people I know don't eat peanut butter anyway -- they eat fancier things like almond butter, cashew butter, etc., that they buy in bulk from their organic food wholesaler.

I've never advocated for that. But having a separate table in the lunchroom and whatever allergy-free snack in the classroom doesn't really seem that onerous.
