Though students are usually required to wear a uniform, eighth grader Dawn Henderson had earned the right to dress casually to school. So she sported a t-shirt that read “Some kids are gay and that’s o.k.”
Dawn had the shirt covered by a zip-up, but word still spread around until she was told by the principal that she needed to change the shirt immediately. According to Dawn, “He basically told me he thought it was a distraction…My opinion is any shirt can be distracting.”
Principal Keith Simmons couldn’t be reached for a comment as of this afternoon, but we hope to be speaking with him soon.
Meanwhile, the t-shirt is available at FCKH8.com.
