‘Marriage Is So Gay’ Tees Not Appropriate For Colorado High Shoolers

Another gay t-shirt in school, another uproar. Let’s zoom in on Colorado’s Kate Cohn, a straight senior whose “Marriage is so gay” tee has administrators furious.

“Our district does have a dress code policy, all the students are aware of it,” says District 49 spokesperson Stephanie Meredith. “If it’s obscene, lewd, or anything that might be disruptive to the educational environment,” administrators can request students get rid of the clothing.

She’s right! The clothing must be disruptive. But wearing a shirt that says “Marriage is so gay” does not automatically cause students at Falcon High School to lose their shit. We learned that from Sommer Collins, Cole Gofort, and Ali Lai, whose fashion choices were only made controversial by whiny administrators, not students making a positive statement. [KKTV]

      So according to the admin. the word “Gay” is lewd or obscene? Well that right there shows us how bigoted they are.

      God, won’t schools just give up already? This is clearly an impermissible First Amendment encroachment. Now we just have to waste more ACLU money to prove the obvious, again.
