The dude just wanted to get a head start in life. The people who got offended were just a bunch of stiffs.

The judge should make the dick-head writer of this story apologize.

So how small would a penile costume have to be to qualify as an annoyance and not offensive?

As he stood limply before the court, matters well in hand.

What happened to Freedom of Speech?

What did you expect from a Saratoga Performing Arts Center student anyway?

We show men kissing men and women kissing women on national television and our children are supposed to accept that as "ok", but they're not supposed to know what a penis looks like?

Yes, this was (in my opinion) a tastless decision, but illegal? No, not illegal, just not popular with certain folks.

The Judge should be ashamed of himself as well here and/or file and injunction against all of the Art Museums for having nude sculptures and paintings on display for the public.

I just can't believe how our tax dollars are being wasted.

Yeah I guess that works, assuming they have a warning on the commencement pamphlet saying "If you don't like seeing someone is a penis costume, don't look in the direction of row 23, seat 14 and don't look when the name Calvin Morett is called."

I'm not offended by the costume, but that's pretty poor logic to avoid seeing it.

Maybe the boys in there could show him what a big one really looks like. if I were attending my son's/daughter's graduation and the a-hole pulled a stuntg like that I'd be pretty PO'd.
Wow. Really offended by a *enis, aren't you! Maybe we should string him up?!?
