    My school banned all trading cards when the Pokémon craze was at its top... except for ice hockey cards! Come on, that's really unfair to ban some cards, but not others.

      I know Pokemon was thought to be "satanic", but I was allowed to play it anyways, because my parents didn't think so...

        Yeah, thats card discrimination. It can also be counted as card racism.

          I remember back in my school days all the kids used to play with the Nintendo handhelds at Lunch time in the food court. man i had a Mario Bros Handheld i used to play all the time back then. I don't no why? they decided to stop kids from having these at school it wasn't like we were always playing em in class, we only used to play them at lunch period. So Yeah school kinda stop us kids back then from play these awesome handhelds, if you were unlucky and got caught playing one it was off to the headmaster's office and they would take your handheld and keep it. I remember i got caught one day and lost my in a box full of other kids Handhelds that was taken from them for playing at school. Even after Grade 6 i never got it back

            That can be counted as stealing. Infact, that could even be taken to court.

              Yeah! you right it is counted as stealing, but it was early eighties so who would listen to a kid back then, both my parents worked and didn't really have much time to complain with teachers. if i could go back in time i would for sure kick that Headmaster's butt and get my Handheld back

                      My mom is a front desk lady in an elementary school. They had to ban trading cards a few years ago. Not because they're evil or distracting or anything. She just got sick and tired of angry parents calling or rushing in to the front office demanding that the school drop everything & waste staff time to look for their kids' lost game boy or Pokemon Card worth $80 . My mom always wanted to tell those stupid parents, what were you doing sending your 10 year old to school with an eighty dollar collectable trading card, and why should this be my problem ??? Seriously, it happened all the time! It got ridiculous.

                        fatal fury, regarding your handheld problem, if you can remember the retard who stole your handheld and where the school is, call the police now!

                            I dont know wether this has been posted on here yet or not, but schools have actually started to ban the game of TAG recently. They can take away Pogs, and Pokemon Cards.. but when they try to take away a game that probably dates back to the cavemen.. uhm.. cavechildren.. I start to get a little pissed. but then again, according to what my little brother has sayed, they can get away with brutal childhood bloodsport no matter how huffy the schoolboard hippies get.
                            Im sorry, but our princess is at another castle.

                              Well when I was in Elementary, Pokemon was banned. Not the GameBoy or anything, just the trading cards. And if you were cought with them you had to get a note from you mom or have them call. They really cracked down on us for that. Hahaha

                              More than once I had them confinscated. :oops:

                                I loved playing tag in grade school. My kids won't even get a chance to play it at school so i'll play tag with them at home.

                                      What I don't see is WHY this has to happen. What's wrong with playing an innocent card game? How are you causing damage playign with a yo-yo? Is the school not PC enough so they must ban tag too?

                                      This is why I hate these PC Hippies that must make everyone's childhood so fluffy-pinky-sheltered that kids are going to keep getting wussier and wussier, and weirder and weirder. But the century has just begun. This is probably the tip of iceberg...


                                      FACISM.

                                        I think its pretty ironic that those very same hippies try to force us to read shit like Steinbeck when we hit highschool. good lord.

                                        EDIT: saay.. is there an auto-censor feature on these forums?..

                                          Or it could be that they're simply distracting from the ultimate purpose of school... LEARNING.
