asanine is right!!
some of the stuff schools are doing is getting out of control. if you don't agree with her message... don't read her shirt.
 
2002-01-28 09:57:12 PM
good fark the pro-life clowns
 
2002-01-28 09:57:32 PM
asinine... sorry
 
2002-01-28 09:59:49 PM
Haha. I'm torn on this. It's not a case of everyone being right. It's a case of everyone being wrong. Sure, an unenforced (and ambiguous) rule loses its authority to students, but it's still a rule. Then again, if if someone is offended by someone's shirt and complains about it, the rule gets enforced.

Please show me how God says abortion is wrong. It's only wrong during the third trimester.

Look here

Anyway, if she was wearing a shirt that said "I like killing fetuses", I'm sure she would have been suspended as well.

Canada is going off the deep end and we are next......
 
2002-01-28 10:03:17 PM
Oh well, she was probably just some slutty ditz who doesnt know the difference between a morning after pill and a coathanger.

Free speech is good and all, but if you dont want an abortion, don't have one.
 
2002-01-28 10:03:37 PM
I say she's a candidate for a fourth-term abortion.
 
2002-01-28 10:04:13 PM
"You will not silence my message; You will not mock my God; You will stop killing my generation."


I can see why people found the shirt "offensive" (more like anger toward the idiot who wears such a shirt when he/she knows it is not tolerated in the school). Being an Evangelical Christian, though, is as close to being a radical kids can get.

(Thanks Quick1 for the pic)

This ought to be good.

Louisville, The US has already gone off the deep end, Canada is just following suit.
 
2002-01-28 10:06:00 PM
Yay Canada.
Yay St. Thomas. What a hick town.
 
2002-01-28 10:06:08 PM
Hey, I didn't make that flamebait pic, I believe in wwas MojoGobo. I just regurgitated it.

Anyway, yeah, this should be a good flamewar. *grabs popcorn*
 
2002-01-28 10:06:52 PM


Eh, I don't see the big deal. It's hardly offensive.
 
2002-01-28 10:07:46 PM
I hate the shirt, but I gotta say, she should have been allowed to wear it. Now they've set a precedent that anything someone considers offensive is reason for a suspension.

See, I will stand up for people I don't agree with...

"In a public school, the focus is on learning and what's happening in class. It's not a forum for promotion of a cause."
 
2002-01-28 10:08:15 PM
What if she'd been wearing one of those huge white "Choose Life" Wham! t-shirts from the 80's? Would she have been suspended then, too?

"Wham! Bam! I am! The man!"

euugh
 
2002-01-28 10:09:01 PM
Just what we needed... 2 1/2 month old Canajen news.

No doubt t-shirt had a PETA slogan on the back which was the real reason for the suspension.

God forbid we should teach children to think about issues, make an informed decision and take action.

What kind of people would they grow-up to be if we did?

Oh yeah, this t-shirt really made every kid in the school want to home home and research what abortion was and make their own decisions on it.

[/sarcasm]

Come on. Why not simply bring it up in the appropriate class, instead of wearing it around in the hallway? You could have a much more civil discussion about it in a class, anyway.
 
2002-01-28 10:13:43 PM
Radicals and enemies of the public?

2002-01-28 10:13:49 PM
Wow, Canadians are more like Americans than i had thought.
 
2002-01-28 10:14:24 PM
Yes, I will mock your god. Your god sucks, your religion sucks.

But I don't see the big deal about the shirt. If someone wears a shirt proclaiming their own stupidity, that's their right.
 
2002-01-28 10:15:07 PM
Guess they did silence "her" message.
 
2002-01-28 10:17:38 PM
I will remember her name, perhaps I will see it pop up somewhere with "Army of God" and "clinic bombing"
 
2002-01-28 10:19:43 PM
I may not like what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

I think it's a dumb-as-a-brick shirt, but hey, it's an opinion. Leave her alone, let her be a psycho. It's not like there is a picture of a mutilated fetus on it. Cripes.
 
2002-01-28 10:20:30 PM
Exactly FifthColoumn.

They always start small...

Thing is, people can't mind their own business. They have to go around bashing gays and their marriages, attacking abortion doctors, hating this and that and them. We live in a world where idiots take things to the extreme, and there are a lot of idiots.

------------------------
Not a big deal when you do it on a message board, either, as you have proven. Talk about a lack of tolerance. Left wing farknuts are about as intolerant as they come.

If she were simply walking down the street wearing it, I wouldn't care. I might point and laugh, but it wouldn't bother me. Yes, every idiot is entitled to their opinion, but not in school.
 
2002-01-28 10:26:39 PM
that's right biatches!

no more will you oppress me with your religious thought and aggresive BS!

hahahahahahahahahaha! stories like this make me happy. really.
 
2002-01-28 10:29:00 PM
Yeah, bc we all know that there is nothing morally wrong in removing a developing child from it's mother's womb and placing it in a blender. Right? Right....?
 
2002-01-28 10:29:28 PM
If people are going to be stupid, I would much rather they are so loudly. For, their stupid words warn me to be on guard against their stupid actions.

I am not sharing my views of this girl's opinion, but I insist she be allowed to express them.
 
2002-01-28 10:29:49 PM
Whatever happened to tolerance in America?
When did offensive become more important?
 
2002-01-28 10:30:51 PM
Yeah, there's a real unbiased source for this kind of news item... www.lifesite.net

"every idiot is entitled to their opinion, but not in school"

Where-the-hell else is one supposed to develop an ability to objectively analyse one's opinion if not in school? I think school should be the first and foremost place one is encouraged to constructivly express opinions.
 
2002-01-28 10:35:06 PM
I find it annoying. YOU will not.... repeated twice. It is like a brainwashing device. And I would certainly not like to be seated behind it in a class. I am atheist; it would make me uncomfortable. But a suspension? Come on. Just make her change. Give her a pe uniform or something.
 
2002-01-28 10:36:11 PM
fifthcolumn please don't lump all pro-lifers with clinic bombing. That's just insane. There are extreme radicals in every group. Idiots, who will go to all limits for their cause, even if it proves them to be hypocrites.
Sure, she was asking for a reaction with that shirt, and it certainly was flamebait. Just like the guy who wore the straight pride shirt. However, it is interesting to see when schools choose to enforce their rules, and when they back off in honor of being pc.
 
2002-01-28 10:37:29 PM
The rule doesn't say, "no markings on shirt". It says "no offensive clothing". In a school, the kids are being taught that this belief is offensive.

If it's being enforced, if any clothing that might offend anyone is being banned and resulting in suspensions, it's a bad rule for what purports to be an educational establishment, but it's fair. If it's being only selectively enforced, if some can express their controversial opinions on their shirts and others can't, that's wrong.

2002-01-28 10:38:38 PM
Wonder why she worships a god that oviously hates women?
 
2002-01-28 10:38:39 PM
Just remember... if you want others to be tolerant, then you must be tolerant yourself. To do otherwise is hypocrisy.

And in this case, I think both sides are guilty of that.
 
2002-01-28 10:40:08 PM
Where-the-hell else is one supposed to develop an ability to objectively analyse one's opinion if not in school?

How about everywhere but?

I couldn't have worn a shirt in school that said "Christians are mean and intolerable." With the back saying "You will not silence my message, you will not mock intelligence with the belief in an invisible man written over 2000 years ago, you will preach ignorant religion to my generation"
 
2002-01-28 10:40:26 PM
how come, since she was brought up to value human life, and disagrees with your opinions she's an idiot. at least she has an opinion she strongly believes in and doesn't care to show it. everyone in here who's calling her an idiot would be extrememly pissed off if she was wearing a shirt that said "i support a mothers right to choose. you can't silence my message" and got suspended. that could be next. what about when someone wears a shirt like that and this girl complains that she finds that offensive??

Not where I live! Furthermore, the whole idea of selling these shirts to kids at church youth group rallies *is* to disrupt and subvert public schools. How many abortions are performed at school, for jeebus' sake?
In the process of attempting to transform the schools into their own mindset, they force the teachers and school boards to have to spend more time away from education and more on writing and enforcing bullshiat dress codes, and deal with the "outraged public" who could give a fark about anything other than how the football coach is going to bring them a winning season in the fall.

I say bring on school uniforms.

Beckers: You may be an atheist (as I often describe myself), but if you feel uncomfortuable when people express their religious beliefs, you have a rough life ahead of you. After all, it happens quite often.

I would be extremely pissed off if she WASN'T suspended. You are obviously missing the whole point.
