Texas high school student sent home for wearing T-shirt that says, “Lesbian” [View all]



A student in Van Alstyne, Texas, was sent home from school this week for wearing a T-shirt that says, “Lesbian,” according to a report from KTEN-TV in Texoma.

Kathryn Bowers, a sophomore at Van Alstyne High School, said she made the shirt to attend Dallas gay Pride and has worn it about 15 times in the last few months. But this week, the principal decided the shirt was causing a disruption and that it violates the school’s dress code, which prohibits “writings that are lewd, offensive or obscene.”

Kathryn went home and changed her shirt and returned to school. But when her mother came to pick her up, administrators said they had reversed their decision and Kathryn will be allowed to wear the “Lesbian” T-shirt.

“The student will be allowed to wear the shirt until such time as the shirt causes a disruption to the school day,” Superintendent John Spies told KTEN in a statement.
