My teacher stated that Sting's lyrics, "If you love somebody...if you love someone, set them free."...were grammatically incorrect The line should have properly read, "Set him or her free."
So I raised my hand and said, "But what if the Beatles had sung, "She loves you Yes Yes Yes"....instead of "She loves you Yeah Yeah Yeah!" I told my female teacher, you should never sacrifice feeling for grammar when writing a song.
She just glared at me and moved on to another topic. She failed me that year as well. I was the brightest student in the class, but my right-leanings pissed her off.
So everyone around me graduated because they just rode the wave and refused to stand up to her. I can't imagine how many young minds that woman warped.
This was in 1983, but it was the beginning of the Left's not being able to see the forest for the trees. It was the beginning of the end of free thought perpetuated by feminist liberal teachers.
And I remember it like it was yesterday.
