13-year-old Chloe Rubiano is in the eighth grade. She is also a good church-going girl. So you can imagine her mom’s surprise when she got in trouble at school for wearing a T-shirt that reads: “Virginity Rocks.”
“It’s a positive message,” said Bambi Crozier, Chloe’s mom.
But school officials disagreed. They said the shirt could cause a classroom disruption and contained sexual content. Apparently some folks at Ramay Junior High don’t understand the concept of virginity.
The 13-year-old, who bought the shirt at a Christian music festival, was told she had to change shirts.
“It was so bizarre,” Mrs. Crozier told me. “She had the shirt for several years at wore it a number of times to school.”
The mother is a bit of a scatterbrain, however, telling Fayetteville’s Channel 5, “If you have the right to say (‘Virginity Rocks’), you also have the right to say, ‘Sex Rocks.’” However that would also mean that if they allow a t-shirt that says, “Say no to drugs,” then they’d also have to allow a t-shirt that says, “Say yes to drugs.”
Banning appropriate message on the idiotic reason that then inappropriate message would have to be allowed is insane. Also, most high school students are convinced that all their peers are having sex, and they feel pressured to do it to. So why in the world would you want to censor the message that not all of their peers are having sex?
