Some people just don't like Gays , Its not because they aren't nice people , Its the thought . Same with Blacks and Illegals. People that holds authority , tries to push there belief and the government beliefs into a law , that you must except. Some males acts girly , I think they are funny. Some pretend to be Gay , because they think its cool , but many was borned this way . Because of the past , many cant except Blacks and White Mix . As for me and what I think , To each there own and hope you don't live in a glass house .

Simple and inexpensive school uniforms would solve such problems.

You want to stand out in some way?

Do it academically.

It's what you're there for.

I bet they wouldn't suspend a [email protected] for wearing a rainbow shirt though.

The religious shirt student failed common-sense 101:
.
Gay pride t-shirts do NOT condemn anyone
.
Her religious t-shirt condemns specific people
.
Feed her to the lions!
.
Even if her religious t-shirt had read "GOD loves You"; that is also out of place; arrogant; and contemptuous; because that is proselytizing and insulting to people of other religions
.
Hint: If her religious t-shirt had read "GOD is Love"; she might have gotten away with it.......just maybe
.
Certain GOD people have given religion a serious black eye
.
They really need to get their noses out of other people's business and start working to improve their own image; like the gays are doing

Would a heterosexual pride t-shirt offend the gay students? I promise you it would. This is political correctness gone mad.

Now you make an interesting point; because it has been discovered gay guys are born with a different brain and 6 more neuroreceptors connected to their spinal cords
http://media01.commpartners.com/AMA/sexual_id...
.
This gives gays the 'smooth moves' you're talking about
.
Occasionally you will find a straight guy who has smooth moves; but this is rare. Straight guys are just naturally clunky; clumsy; and herky-jerky
(swagger)
.
po'thangs ;o))

They can't wear shirts with alcohol or guns on them because they promote violence drinking.

They shouldn't be able to wear a shirt promoting being gay or straight that way either side can't get offended.

Personally I am straight and feel it is wrong to be gay but that is their choice it should not be imposed on us that feel it is wrong, as we should not impose being straight on them. If they are gay then so be it but they don't have to advertise, we don't advertise we are straight.

Exactly!
.
That's because the unrelenting psychotic homophobes among you have given the heterosexual image a serious black eye
.
Sitting around feeling sorry for yourselves because nobody cares about your arrogant supremacy; does nothing to endear you the greater population that celebrates diversity
.
Heterosexuals need to work on improving their public image; just like the gays are doing
.
That cannot be accomplished by badmouthing everybody who is different than you
.
So try this:
.
Practice celebrating all the different breeds of humans the same way we celebrate all the different breeds of dogs
.
Celebrating diversity is the only way we have to make the world a better place. Fighting among ourselves only makes matters worse
.
LOVE conquers all

You have good intentions; but you're still display a subconscious edge of discomfort with gay people
.
Gay guys are born with the same sexual orientation your mother was born with; attracted to men; one and the same
.
So try this:
.
Every time you find yourself feeling uncomfortable around a gay person; think of your mother
.
You'll be amazed at how many new friends you'll pick up along the way
.
LOVE conquers all

WOW!
.
You're on to something admirable; so lets take a look
.
Wear a heterosexual pride t-shirt that reads 'Heteros LOVE everybody'
.
Live up to that motto and you will be a winner; Herbert
.
Suddenly; you will feel GOOD about yourself; and so will everyone around you; especially the ladies
.
Don't you see?

LOVE conquers all

Now I don't agree that a "God Loves You" shirt is insulting to anyone and it is certainly less insulting than a lot of other things I have read on a T-Shirt, and I believe that people of other religions should be able to wear religious shirts within reason, as long as it doesn't cause a disruption, and so should Christian people. Now I definitely think this person should be made to take the T-Shirt off, "being gay ain't right" wasn't being worn to practice freedom of speech, it was most definitely used to be disruptive.

You make an exceptionally good point about attempts to disrupt
.
Ahem! However (lol) lets do a little micro-tuning and put your 'GOD loves you' t-shirt theory to the test:
.
Imagine you are changing classes and a person wearing an 'Allah loves YOU!' t-shirt walks past you.....!! Would you not find that to be a teeny bit combative or annoying?
.
So lets change the shirt and do it again:
.
Imagine you are changing classes and a person wearing an 'Allah is love' walks past you.....no problem; eh!
.
So you are correct; intent to disrupt; sometimes by subtly shifting a few words around; DOES justify appropriate discipline
.
Peace and love; H.K.Kitty

Hi Not quite;
.
I have a little sign in my guest bathroom that reads "Show no respect for others; and you'll get no respect in return"
.
So when a person dishes out abuse; they can expect to have it tossed right back at 'em; just like the student wearing the disruptive t-shirt
.
So the best plan is for that person to dish out LOVE so they can have LOVE tossed right back at 'em; and as an added bonus they get a Stay Out of Jail card (no suspension)
.
How sweet is THAT!
.
Peace and love; H.K.Kitty
