I don't usually object vehemently every time a group attempts to curtail the behaviour of others to prevent offense (a.k.a. political correctness). I will make an exception for this, especially since it's one of Kai's favourite songs.

Why don't people take intent into consideration before they react? I highly doubt that small children and preschool instructors are thinking to themselves, "I really hope I offend some deaf people with the hand gestures to this song. Muahahahahahahaaaaa!"

What gets me about these things is how something that has been going on for so long is suddenly pointed out as being wrong. It's not like this hand gesture is new, right? There is no reason to SUDDENLY ask for it to be banned since no one has cared for ages. Geez.
