Isn't this sexist? I guess if boys can't wear thier hair long, then girls can't wear thier hair short? I'm all for equal rights and all, but shouldn't it be equal rights for all??? Or am I way off base??

It's discriminatory. There is no reason for the difference in treatment for hair length between boys and girls other than some people think that boys should not have long hair. They are merely relying on the fact that most people agree with them and thus few will complain. Unfortunately for them, they ran into a complainer. I'm guessing the parents are fighting this on religious/cultural grounds, but really, this should be challenged because of the unequal treatment.

In the 60's, a male family member was 'caught' wearing a wig - to hide his long hair.

Can't believe anybody cares today. Unless an official got a hard on from looking at a long haired guy from behind, not realizing...

Betenbaugh said her son wears his hair long because his father is of American Indian descent and the couple are raising the boy in the tradition of his Apache ancestors a bunch of bullshiat that doesn't really matter and no one should care about since IT'S JUST farkING HAIR.

As a Native Texan, I approve of this kid being allowed to tend school wearing his cultural heritage on his head.

I had long hair in Junior High in Texas at a Baptist private school, they kept telling me to cut it and I kept saying, "WWJD?"

My Vice principle hated my long red and black hair. Unfortunately for him, they didn't even enforce the real dress code much less his "Proper conservative moral dress code". Didn't hurt that all the teachers thought he was a jackass.
 
2008-08-25 11:42:34 PM  
A long haired boy?! In school? That is disgusting.
 
2008-08-25 11:42:42 PM  
Vote Obama and then everybody will be sending their kids to school looking like that.
 
2008-08-25 11:44:03 PM  
As a long hair myself I feel it necessary state that this school's policy is in direct violation of this boy's inalienable right to be FARKING METAL whenever and wherever he chooses!

It's Texas, where they execute the mentally handicapped, drag blacks behind their pickup trucks and it's OK to have sex with 12 year old girls as long as it's your religion. Of course they still care.

Reminds me of Hunter Thompson shaving his head so that he could refer to the other candidate with a crew cut as his long haired opponent.


Is anyone here an eskimo? I'm wondering how many seasons I could run a whale oil lamp if I rendered the four thighs in that picture.
 
2008-08-25 11:46:34 PM  
Ironic that every picture of Jesus you see is a long-haired hippie yet these farktards probably consider themselves god-fearing Americans. Also, most of the Founding Fathers had long hair as well. Why do these asshats hate Jesus and the Founding Fathers?

In 1971, as a third grader in Boerne, Texas, I was denied entry on the first day of school due to my shaggy locks (sort of a modified Austin Powers, down the neck, but nothing special).

From that day, I swore revenge on the redneck scum of all nations.

Die mofokkers, die!
