What happens when we get too politically correct? When we implement laws and ask the government to protect everyone. Because we don't trust anyone to protect themselves. We may being doing this with the best intentions, but it doesn't take too much to get out of hand. Think of our children. Right now we have dress codes, peanut-free classrooms, antivacinator movements, you name it. First we take away their playgrounds, so nobody can get hurt. Then we take away certain foods, so no one has an allergic reaction. Next we stop forcing vaccines upon our children. Then we take away sports, recess, art, music and censor literature. This piece sums up helicopter parenting in an extreme way. Grim as it may be. I've made a point and I like to look at it. Kids in gas masks are creepy cute. I think everyone should hang a copy in their kids playroom.
I was listening to Queen's Platinum hits collection while painting this piece. I wondered what Freddy Mercury would think about peanut free classrooms, and parents suing schools over minor playground injuries.
