If this is the worst you ever get in your life, then thank a democrat for protecting your rights. The only reasons republicans care you were mocked is because you were wearing a republican T-shirt. If you were wearing a dem t-shirt they would be the ones mocking you, and removing your right to complain because you are a woman and the bible says you are not as good as a man.

    I just cannot believe her whining she wants respect while endorsing the party of overwhelming sexism.
    That is a bit of a caricature.

    They are setting themselves up to sue the school, anyone can see that. Even without that financial incentive, some people just crave attention. Look at the way people humiliate themselves on "American Idol" and similar shows.

    The school district confirmed to CNBC that an incident occurred and it is conducting an investigation to determine whether disciplinary action is necessary.

    I would say that those two highlighted statements would confirm the girl isn't lying..... but hey I understand the need for liberals to come to the defense of another liberal ... no matter what was done

    No one would ever say that CNBC was a conservative station , yet that is the what was used as a source.
    Yes, an incident occurred, that doesn't mean the girl's version of the story should be considered engraved in stone. Another example of let's hear both sides of the story unless one side is what we want to believe.

    I don't see it. They seem to want the teacher to be punished, where do you get the idea that they're going to sue?

    Well, first of all, that seems to be the norm in cases like this anymore. Secondly, it sounds like they are doing their best to establish a mental/emotional anguish angle which would be needed since no physical harm or monetary loss occurred. I guess I just believe that unless they were looking to cash in that having the teacher apologize, not teach her class anymore(which has already happened), and perhaps a letter of reprimand would be enough. It doesn't sound like it will be for these people however. As I've said in other posts, I don't think the parents showed the greatest wisdom allowing her to wear the shirt if the environment is so hostile and I also believe that schools in general, which can prohibit anything they deem disruptive as long as the standard isn't biased, should prohibit all political themed items. You're there to learn not campaign.

    Not really. A couple of years back I would have thought so myself. After seeing the birth control incident where the sausage fest barely had any women speaking, and the onloy one of note that did was called a slut and a whore by the right for standing up for medication. Then we have the idea thjat Ann Romney has a clue what it means to be a woman in the US. Then there was the whole women don't get pregnant by rape bull****, accompanied by the legitimate rape bull****, and finally them just settling on rape as a form of conception to be respected. Then there is the fight against equal pay for women. The republican party has doubled down on their sexism in the past year or so. though i dislike using the word war to describe what they are doing, the sexist attacks, and attacks on their ability to earn incomes and be healthy has really looked like a war on women.

    Wow! And you honestly list "other" as your "political lean"?

    You mean because no one ever invents an incident, or blows a minor one out of proportion, just to get attention?
