Hi, I go to High School in California, and I recently wore the following T-shirt to school:
I wore it throughout the day, and about 10 minutes before the period was over in my chem class, my teacher suddenly started yelling at me, "Am I the first to be DISGUSTED by that T-shirt today?!". She then proceeded to sending me to the back of the class and having me flip it inside out, something I felt a little embarrassed about. I'm not the type of person to take their shirt off in public, even at the back of the class (many heads were turned). The next day, during the same period, a vice principal at my school had a little talk with me in which he told me all about how they have to make the learning environment great for everybody and that I can't wear that shirt.
I know many would argue that this matter is too juvenile to argue about, but I believe strongly in freedom of speech. I also know it is limited in schools, but my question is how limited is it? Limited enough to prevent me from wearing that shirt? Additionally, if I censor the shirt(with masking tape or something) does that make a difference?
Thanks for your help!
