As far as I know she didn't use pot or alcohol or any of the rest of that ****. She didn't endanger herself or anyone else. She simply indulged in the evils of rainbows. Who knew that was a crime?
    Perhaps, but, again, there's a two year history there and without additional information there's no way to see the full context of the situation. The school has a very good reputation and I do not see the logic in them just arbitrarily kicking out students without cause. It appears they gave this young woman multiple chances. Again, without more information, there's no way to understand the full context of the photo and cake.

    Actually the Gay and Lesbian Alliance do not own a copyright on the colors of the rainbow, or the rainbow image itself. 15 year old girls are not in violation of copyright law by having multiple colors of frosting on their cakes, or their clothing. It is not associated with any one lifestyle or subcultural monopoly.

    Now the glitter referenced in the letter to the bakery is under our patent.

    Nobody has any business using glitter without our specific written permission on any baked goods.

    I'm only assessing from the information I have. I think that if there was anything more, that the school would have put it out, because the bleacher thing was, in an of itself, humiliating for this girl. It leads me to think they aren't holding back from any principle. It's not like they're bound by any confidentiality agreement.

    Its a matter for the courts to settle. Glitter was ours, before it was theirs.

    I doubt the school would release private information on a student much less an underage student. The information in the Newsweek article probably came from the parents.

    My guess is the parents are more humiliated than the student. Kayla seems to do whatever the heck she wants.

    They had no problem releasing the fingering on the bleachers thing. That's as personal as it gets.

    You really think the parents put that out? Really??!!!! Are you a parent? Of course not. What am I thinking! I have three kids. No parent is going to put that sort of information out. Not going to happen. FULL STOP!!!!

    It's less likely to cause a lawsuit than if the school did it.
