And today he wore a Human Rights Campaign shirt that we got at Pride yesterday to his school. At 8:35am I got a call from him saying he was being made to either change his shirt or wear it inside out. He hung up to get to his next class on time, so I didn't have time to find out what person on staff to yell at, but when I get him after school today I'll find out exactly who to direct my wrath towards.
What shirt did he have on? Was it the one for Astroglide or Ball-Gags-A-Go-Go? HARDLY.
And if this is in violation of the school's dress code, which is this: Clothing, including tee shirts, which displays, sex, violence, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, death, gang or hate slogans or pictures are prohibited, then I fail to see how it's in violation.
Oh, I'm sure it's because it "displays, sex [sic]." Which, if that's the case, then so does this:
And jewelry/accessories would also fall under clothing, which means this is also in violation:
Because a shirt that promotes equality for marriage (which is what the shirt my son wore represents) means that marriage as a concept promotes/displays sex.
Which means anything about marriage period is in violation. I mean, I know that when I think about someone being married (which I can't help when I see two people wearing wedding rings) all I have in mind is all of the sweaty contortions they get up to in the bedroom.
I am not in the mood for this level of stupid, I just really am not.
And I'm really proud of my son. And really angry with his school.
