Breast Cancer Braclets — BannedPosted by on Monday, October 15th, 2012
A school district in Wisconsin has banned “I <3 Boobies” bracelet.
The very purpose of the bracelets is to educate other young people about cancer prevention, testing, research and treatment.
The ACLU saw this as a free speech issue, which it is. The school district maintains that they distract students and are sexually provocative.
A federal district court judge recently agreed with the school.
I once saw a shirt that said, “These boobs are fake. My real ones tried to kill me.”
The funny thing about issues like this — booby bracelets in school — is that they usually diffuse themselves when those in “authority” ignore them and make no big deal about it. But, now that attention has been drawn to it, it’s a huge, silly, giggly, middle-school type deal.
Don’t forget…we live in the home of the brave, where people can’t even handle a borderline inappropriate bracelet.
