gfid: AverageAmericanGuy: Just ban all bracelets. Duh.They had already done that.FTA: The case began a year ago when two middle school students, Brianna Hawk and Kayla Martinez, filed suit after being suspended for defying their school's ban on the bracelets.Also, check this part out:"It explicitly says school children talk about important things, and when they (do) ... that's the kind of speech we want to protect and promote,"What? I thought the whole idea of Free Speech was to protect speech that might be unpopular, not just speech that we want to "promote".So what happens when some kid wears a bracelet that says "Jesus died for your sins" or maybe a t-shirt that says "No blood for oil"?Well, we don't want to promote that kind of speech, do we?
sniderman: That does it. I'm printing up a bunch of t-shirts that say "I (heart) A Finger Up My Ass" to raise prostate cancer awareness.
