It sounds like new laws are being passed in various countries* that might make rolling your eyes illegal. Is that true where you live?

If so, will they now have to edit all the Disney movies where cartoon role models roll their eyes? :)


* Is Australia one of those?

In what countries are these being made illegal????

Many many years ago, the UCMJ (military law) used to have
a chargeable offense called 'silent insolence'.

Maybe this is what any 'eye rolling' laws would be about,
if those laws exist.

BTW it ain't a country, it's Elmhurst, Illinois – just
west of Chicago…

Ah. A micro aggression?

So Elmhurst is going for ban on all teens?

Cacique Caribe21 Aug 2017 12:53 p.m. PST

Is this it?



PS. And I guess schools are also using those as guidelines for their codes of conduct:

My parents certainly considered it illegal, I can tell you that. And they still do.

Cacique Caribe21 Aug 2017 6:52 p.m. PST

Lol. Parents should definitely make it illegal for their own children to do!

Crossing ones arms, and/or sighing as a response or comment were also both considered, "Silent Insolence."

It was for real!

Back before PC, I recall seeing in movies and books that the British Army called it 'dumb insolence.'

Old Wolfman22 Aug 2017 5:32 a.m. PST

Comedian Alan Sues did that stuff too.

A town council in Elmhurst ejected a woman for rolling her eyes.
And now they want to make it "disorderly conduct".
Who voted for these Yahoos? Will voting against them be considered disorderly conduct too?

Excellent points Winston.

I would think that it would be seen as a sign of insubordination in the military.

But to view it as an unlawful or punishable hostile act when between civilians/citizens, that's what would be sad.

I work with teens almost daily. If we could just affix dynamos to their temples, we'd solve the world's energy needs.

Cacique Caribe22 Aug 2017 12:34 p.m. PST


I don't envy you that job. (shivers)


Dervel Fezian22 Aug 2017 8:45 p.m. PST

Depends on how you acquired the eyes I guess?

Oh God. This is all SWMBO needs to find out. I am soooo screwed.

Persistent eye-rolling can be a sign of serious problems. And can lead to serious consequences:
