The Further "Pussification" of America's Youth

The state of New York has recently released a new list of "dangerous" activities that summer camps need to keep out of their programs.

Yes. We are getting wimpier and wimpier by the year.

Here are a few things on the list:

  • Wiffle Ball -- How hard would you have to swing that yellow plastic bat to do serious bodily damage?
  • Kickball -- If kickball scares you as a little kid, real life is going to be a real shocker for your timid little soul.
  • Dodgeball -- Here's an obvious one. We know it's dangerous, and it makes skinny nerds feel terrible. But ... it builds character.
  • Capture The Flag -- Not dangerous at all, unless it's played with guns. But then it's called "war."
  • Red Rover -- This one makes some sense. There is the potential for a lot of dislocated shoulders.
