I think the teacher ought to have tore his ass up with a paddle. If his parents can't raise him right let the school do it. Naybe they can make a man out of him.

There was nothing fair or just about the way this teenager was treated.. Do we punish girls for wearing make up? No we don't, and we don't get to pick and choose who gets what liberties. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

these rulez are getting to the point they infringe on peoples rights .. its left up to the teachers opinion as to whether or not its a desraction , so if the teacher finds u wearing a cross and their jewish is that destracting ? its hogwash b/s and until we stand up for our children and their rights its only gonna get worse .. id like to see this family hire a lawyer ans sue( would glad attend a protest or fund raise where proceeds went to fight such injustice) but no so much for money but to get the rules changed to better support their freedoms rather than confine them .. these kids are our future

Funny , no one has a problem when male actors wear make up. Its because the kid is gay is why it's a problem.

If I was the parent I'd have this in every media outlet that it could be in.

Teachers are forgetting what their fucking job is . It's to teach the curriculum and prepare them for the next level of higher education.

For the church morons who are anti gay and like to teach hate towards any one who is. The bible only has like 3 verses in it about gays being " an abomination" . Which for one was written by a man not god. 2 it's written in the old testament which Christians aren't supposed to follow the old testament because of the supposed fulfillment of the prophecies by Jesus.
3 Jesus never spoke against it .

Small wonder then that modern Fundamentalists and Christians usually have to ignore everything Jesus and the Apostles said and turn to the Old Testament to find justification for their actions.

whats wrong is telling people how to live their life,we have free will yes we have laws to curb dangerous free will but has the kid broke any laws,i dont care for guys wearing make up myself but hey its his thing not mine.people say a person should do this or that but tell them not to do something,they go nuts.why dont we concentrate on what we do and let others figure out what they want to do.i have my likes and dislikes,for one i'm not gay but i like chocolate cake.if you want to suck on a sausage go for it and i'm gonna have me a piece of chocolate cake and perhaps a glass of milk

What annoys me is people using the defense "he broke the rules that's all that matters" bullshit I remember high school and I wore make up every day and guess what not once was I disciplined for it, because I am a girl. What's next are we gonna start suspending every girl with a bobbed hair cut and jynco jeans? This was just another excuse to shove religious convictions Down the throats of others. I am a Christian but I will never try to force my beliefs on another person especially when it means treading on their civil liberties. I hope this kid sues the socks off that high school and reminds them their place to teach not minister or parent!

Everyone wants to blame this on Christans,but the queers are the ones always saying they are offened! Does our beliefs not stand for anything, maybe it offened someone at school and this was done because of it! Plus two men can't create life! Sorry it's not going to happen!

That would be like if cell phones aren't allowed in class and the teacher suspended a kid for having their cell phone after school.
