Quote# 2854

Talking about being a homo is disruptive to the learning envoirnment. Just like girls wearing skirts that are too short can be punished for breaking the rules, even though they have 'free speech,' it's perfectly appropriate to punish someone for talking about his sexuality especially because his particular sexuality is controversial and disruptive. The school believes that his conduct was inappropriate to the school enviornment and issued the punishment of reading from the bible: A very appropriate punishment. He should do his assigned reading and shut the fuck up.

Wow...so freedom of speech only applies if something's not controversial or disruptive?

Gadren, in a school setting, there is a legitimate limit to what kids should be allowed to do, and/or HOW they express themselves, to maintain order and decorum. But if it was just conversation, I don't see how that kind of limitation necessarily applies in this case, myself -- nor the punishment, unless it was a religious private school (and whether it was or not, the kid has my sympathy).

I have a better idea: Leave the kid alone and you shut the fuck up.
