2007-09-24 [Cadet]: Okay she shouldn't have been suspended just because some people are homophobes and find it "inappropriate
2007-10-09 Vishous Bloodletter: But it may have been offensive to another person. You cannot wear something that is offensive to someone, disrruptive to class, and interfers in the learning experience. Education is more important at this level than making a full out statement 24/7. That is what free time/weekends/out of school is for.
2007-10-11 [Cadet]: How is saying that you don't mind gays offensive? please explain that to me. and how is it disruptive and interfering with the learning experience? i don't see how it all connects. there were other solutions rather than suspending her. like turning it inside out or asking her to change it.
2007-10-12 [My Own Darc Nightmare]: What i mean by ''disruptive" is if it offends someone who is not okay with gays, they bring it up and a big deal was obviously made about it. It interfers in learning.
2007-10-14 [Cadet]: I still don't understand how it is offensive. people are just too sensative and need to get over it, just because someone's sexual preference is different doesn't mean it's become "offensive" when they are mentioned.
2007-10-16 [My Own Darc Nightmare]: Alright, think on it this way...if someone wore a "I Love Presidant Bush" t-shirt and was serious about it, you would think that person was stupid, correct? And more likely than not, you would say something about it. That little comment and that shirt could cause a big conversation among alot of people. Now let's say that happened in a class, very dissruptive correct??
2007-10-16 [wu di doo]: true and those who are aginst bush would boo and tease but would the school suspend this person? no they would get on to the people that are booing for the disterbince
2007-10-18 [Cadet]: An "I love Bush" shirt is an opinion and i have no right to judge someone's opinion, i might not agree but i don't really have room to judge them based on the decision and no it wouldn't really be distracting to me.
2007-10-19 [My Own Darc Nightmare]: Uh...argument.
2007-10-19 [Cadet]: So I win??
2007-10-22 [My Own Darc Nightmare]: Well, normally I'd have argued your side, but you know...every one was so I couldn't.
