I still don't get why you begrudge people who normally live as you ask, nay demand, ONE sporting event where they don't have to worry, where a kid can just be a kid and enjoy an experience that 99.05% of people take for granted. Because they do stay home from places that serve peanuts, they wipe down the seat/table in public places just in case, they do carry epi-pens (probably more than one).
ONE game without peanuts is not going to kill anyone.
I think they're too worried about their rights to take some time to show human kindness to one little kid on one day.

Staying at home for every game, including this one, isn't going to kill anyone. So no one dies, either way. What's your point?

That is correct, sir. I can't marry my sister. Nor am I allowed to marry a woman who's already married.

My rights trump my "kindness." That's like saying "Show some compassion for innocent children and give up your guns."

No it isn't.

It's like giving up your bus seat for a 90 year old woman.

No it's not. It's like not wearing perfume or cologne even though you want to because someone who maybe around you during the day might possibly be allergic to it.

Sorry, that's the person who is allergic to fragrances problem, not the problem of every person who wants to wear perfume or cologne. I feel that way even though I don't wear cologne.

I notice how it is mostly the flaming liberals on here who are the ones that feel placing the burden of someone's peanut allergy on everyone in society and preventing them from eating peanuts is the right thing to do. Big surprise, there.

My point is you're being a d!ck about people with peanut allergies getting ONE sporting event where they don't have to worry about dying. You get that part, right? Some of these people are so sensitive that they could die just be touching something that once had peanuts on it. ONE sporting event where they can live life like a "normal" person. None of this is costing you anything, but yet you insist on basically saying a big "f*ck you" to these folks just because you don't like the idea of a the majority giving up something for ONE day to benefit a tiny minority, so they can enjoy an activity that almost everybody else takes for granted.

You do not have a RIGHT to eat peanuts on the stadium. They decide what you are permitted to bring on the premises. Outside food is usualy not permitted at sporting events. The fact that you can eat peanuts in the stadium is a PRIVILEGE merely based on the fact that they sell peanuts. If they choose not to sell peanuts, it is no more if a violation of your rights than them not selling lobster nor permitting you to bring it in.

Their peanut allergy is not my problem. Itís their problem. I resent the fact that they want to try and make it my problem and control my behavior because of something that is their problem. Itís their problem 365 days out of the year and not my problem 365 days out of the year. Not one day is it ever my problem.

I also donít give a fí about whether they can or canít enjoy an activity, i.e. going to a game, just like they donít care if I canít enjoy an activity, i.e. eating peanuts. So, if Iím selfish, so are they.

rif.org . I said mostly flaming liberals.

In your case it's not so much that you are a flaming liberal, but more so that you are complete f'ing bimbo.

Of course, that is their mindset. They don't believe in personal responsibility.

And first it's one day out of the year, and then before we know it the morons of society, including the folks on here, get together and elect officials that ban them completely from stadiums using this same logic ... "it's a few hours out of X days of the years where you can't eat peanuts while in a stadium watching a game ... the rest of the time you are free to eat peanuts. Is that going to kill you." Hells no. Eff off and die.

I already said I agree with you as far as general practoce, but I don't have a problem giving up peanuts for one froggin game so people who don't normally get to go can have the opportunity. If I was someone who got 3 bags at every game, I would not be pissed off of I was unable to one time a year.
