Quote of the Week

"We can all agree that children are ugly. Their heads are to big, their legs are too thin, their fingers too fat and grasping -- they are a complete mess. But what's most shocking about them is that their greatest ugliness is on the inside. I speak, of course, of their bigotry. I shouldn't even have to mention this, because it is a natural extension of their stupidity, Stupid people are bigoted because they don't know any better. I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slighly different from the norm.

I happen to be slightly different from the norm."
