My family is friends with a couple who have a child with a pretty severe peanut allergy. This child attends the same Elementary School as we do. When the child arrived at the school they did not ask for any special considerations when their child showed up. The teacher of their child's specific class decided to make the classroom peanut free, but that was all and the matter was dropped.
Until a few soccer moms rolled up in their Escalades and decided to make the matter a massive issue. The fact that entire school was not now peanut free was an outrage and they were taking up the cause for the poor child who's rights were being trampled by the school who clearly doesn't care that this child is at risk. On and on they went, raising the flag of 'PEANUT FREE! PEANUT FREE!' while the actual family actually didn't care.
The moral of this story?
