This is kind of ironic. Here’s the lede:
A Fayetteville junior high made a teenager girl change T-shirts at school because they said it contained sexual content. She said it expressed her Christian beliefs.
Does a shirt that says “Virginity Rocks” contain “sexual content?” In fact, isn’t it kinda’ the exact opposite of that?
The 8th grader at Ramey Junior High in Fayetteville, Arkansas was called down to the office and told that the administration was worried her shirt would start sexual conversations in class. She said her vice principal told her, ‘I love the shirt, and I agree with it. But, I just don`t think it is acceptable for school. It opens up too many doors for conversations.’
Soooo, the Fayeteville school district is AGAINST conversations with middle schoolers about sex? Hmmm. Is that why in 2005, the school board voted to keep a sex education book called “It’s Perfectly Normal” on its library shelves despite full frontal nude drawings in it. It also shows adult cartoon characters naked and in bed together. One parent at the time reportedly said she felt the illustrations were too sexually explicit and that the book encouraged children to experiment with “both heterosexuality and homosexuality.” Hundreds of parents signed a petition against the book but the school district said the book should stay.
Seems they like certain conversations and not so much other ones.
