    So you're okay with ANY t-shirt being worn at school?

    What's similar about wearing a t-shirting promoting same-sex or ANY sexual relationships and wearing a shirt with the flag on it?

    This is the huge strawman on your part.

    First of all, what a Gay Pride shirt does promote is a person's pride in who they are. Remember, sexual orientation is by far a larger factor in a person's life than their nationality. Not everybody is an American, but EVERYBODY has a sexual orientation. Why should some be ashamed of theirs when others are accepted?

    Secondly, a t-shirt saying 'Gay Pride' doesn't promote sex anymore than a rainbow flag does.

    Finally, they are comparable in terms of how a person identifies themselves.

    Get it? Got it? Good.

    We are making comparisons between t-shirts which have been deemed offensive to some in the past. If you find a gaypride t-shirt offensive, you have absolutely no room to complain when somebody finds your t-shirts, regardless of what they have on them, offensive. It's a two way street.

    In a world where you can't wear American Flags on the 5th of May: you can't say "Happy Holidays" on Christmas, you can't burn the American flag, you can't wear anything other than an American flag on the 4th of July, no opinion can be expressed that does not correspond to the pre-approved "dominant" opinion.

    In short, it's not a world I want to live in.

    We're not talking about the world. It's a HS campus. It's been determined many times over that students do not have any rights at school. I don't hear anyone putting down the other aspects of the dress code. When a lad wants to wear long hair, everyone here sides with the school. What's the difference?

    So you're okay with ANY t-shirt being worn to school no matter what it says?

    Students have no rights at school? Huh? So a teacher can smack a kid across the face and nothing will happen to the teacher?

    I think what should happen is little Annicia Nunez's parents should make a statement apologizing for their daughter's lack of respect for her new home and enroll her in some after school civics lessons followed by a visit to the rats nest of a country she came from to reinforce how good she has it here.

    Wasn't there a kid sent home for taking down the Mexican flag from his school? I wouldn't care if that flag was just there for Cinco de Mayo, but it certainly shouldn't be there all the time. Does anyone know the full story yet?
