Response to TreasonousBastard (Reply #1)

6. Seriously?

First, she was wearing it for gay pride (edit). Second, why the hell shouldn't she? Why do you get to decide when she feels ready and comfortable with her sexuality? For all you know, maybe she only recently came out, and this helps her feel confident in a place without many friends. Maybe the shirt is a statement piece against discrimination. Maybe the shirt is just a reminder of who she is, something comforting to wear. Maybe she's wearing it in support of a friend who recently committed suicide after being bullied for being gay.

News flash: real life happens by high school. High schoolers have sex (often before they want to, sadly), begin to discover who they are, who they're attracted to. Maybe, just maybe, you don't get to decide how and when someone is ready for and displays their sexuality, and maybe you should think before being so quick to judge.
