Ok People, listen up.
For the purpose of this post, I don’t give a hoot what your personal views on abortion are.
Regardless, the above image, found on a T-shirt offered through the American Life League, is inappropriate for your child to wear to school.
Especially if said child is a mere 7th grader, attending an educational institution that consists of Kindergarten through 8th grade.
The fact that this even needs to be discussed is quite unsettling.
Even worse is the fact that the school, because officials made the kid change her offensive shirt, is now being sued.
Her parents claim the school violated her first amendment right to free speech.
Schools have the right and the responsibility to keep offensive clothing- whether it be a too-tight pair of daisy dukes, a shirt with a gang-sign or the Confederate Flag, and most especially a disgusting, adult themed anti-abortion rag- out of the classroom.
My litmus test is this- if the attire in question causes a disturbance, an uproar, a distraction… it’s inappropriate.
This kid’s mom was smokin’ crack the day she let her daughter wear that thing to school. That she is now taking legal action against them for doing what she should have done to begin with- making the child take the darn thing off- is absolutely ludicrous.
Only in America, I suppose.
