    I don't care about all the issues with this story, but how ****ing stupid do you have to be to not know what a henna tattoo is?

    You mean a Mehndi tattoo, and why does not knowing imply stupidity?

    This war on Christmas is outrageous. How dare these schools try to expose our kids to different cultures and traditions.

    “It's upsetting to go through Christmas with another religion's celebratory symbolism all over my daughter's hands,” Tammy Samour told KHOU, noting that the removable dye is used in Hindu and Islamic tradition.

    The multiculturalism of this is pretty alright but if the school didn't do more than send a note (like provide pictures of the artwork) then I could see how she is upset. I'd be pissed if my kid came home tatt'ed up and I wasn't expecting it. Now would I report this to the news and look like a bigot wanting a pay out? Nope.

    So you have no idea what the note said? You're jumping to conclusions. As others mentioned, teachers should not be touching kids if its unnecessary, regardless of a note.

    No sure why you quoted me. I was giving my opinion to another poster that it would not matter to me what the henna tattoo was.

    Can you please point me to the link where it actually says there was a note to sign and the mother actually signed the note granting permission for them to place a henna design on her child.

    When I was in school and my kids were in school, if a note was not signed, it was the same as not giving permission.

    I'm pretty sure schools in Texas have the right to use corporal punishment on your children unless you sign a note opting out rather than opting in. Seems like drawing on a child is less invasive than hitting one.

    Do we require permission slips when kids play with watercolors or markers or do science projects or go out and play kickball in recess? All of those could leave marks or result in injuries or whatnot.

    You're wrong. It's relevant to the mom apparently.

    I'm fine her wanting to tell the school it is not OK to do that -- what were they thinking
    I'm not fine her apparently calling KHOU to make a big scene -- shut.up

    melodramatic crap that passes as nightly local news to spread all over the world via the internet and dailymail.co.uk

    This r e a l l y pisses me off. I'm so furious.

    I am a Hindu - Henna is not religious in any way - it's actually just celebratory and festive - it's beautiful and ancient. There is no reason to fear it.

    The irony of this whole thing is that the school is trying to eradicate the very ignorance the mother is demonstrating here. It's a shame she wouldn't at least try to understand that Henna is actually used to celebrate Christmas by Christians in India.

    suburb mom would go insane on her daughter for drawing on herself before Christmas. A school did it and she is also furious. ITT she is called racist.

    Total BS.

    You wouldn't react this way if they had face painting day - and face paint can ignite allergies, can be harmful if they're of ****ty quality, etc.

    It never enters the skin, it's 100% topical, non-religious and not even specific to India. Washes off with lemon btw.

    If you didn't know all this before making a judgement, it's ok to say you didn't know about it and felt uncomfortable or worried about it. But to now know what it is and still act like some special attention needs to be paid to it is so ignorant and childish.

    It's amazing these kids were just enjoying some temporary paint on their hands from a fun arts and crafts class meanwhile the parents have now indoctrinated all the kids in that school about this harmless thing lol. Uncivilized.

    It takes a 5 second Google search to find out how to remove henna, and then an additional 200 seconds to remove the hena using dangerous household cleaners shuch as Lemon Jiuce. Stfu. This b**** was easily irked and is a microcosm of the safe space evengelical right who believes their privilege is the same as natural rights.

    Maybe even regular literacy. This lady is the conservative version of the liberal social justice warrior. Someone needs to tell all these people to lighten up.

    It certainly is religious. It may be festive and celebratory, but it is religious. And nobody fears Mehndi art - nice straw man.

    Merry Christmas.

    No - Just an overall life literacy

    I don't know where you get it is religious. I think you are very poorly informed.

    And when people freak out about it - and make assumptions about something they don't understand - yes, that is the definition of fear. This woman is clearly afraid of things she doesn't understand.
