SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Public schools can bar clothing with slogans that are hurtful, a U.S. appeals court ruled Thursday in the case of a student who wore a T-shirt saying "Homos3xuality is shameful."
ADVERTISEMENT

The 2-1 decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals backed a San Diego-area high school's argument that it was entitled to tell a student to remove a T-shirt with that message.

The officials were concerned the slogan could raise tension at the school, where there had been conflict between gay and straight students.

The student sued, claiming the school's dress code violated his free speech, religious freedom and due process rights.

Writing for the panel's majority, Judge Stephen Reinhardt affirmed a lower court's decision against an injunction against the school and said schools may bar slogans believed to be hurtful.

Students "who may be injured by verbal a.ssaults on the basis of a core identifying characteristic such as race, religion, or s3xual orientation, have a right to be free from such attacks while on school campuses," Reinhardt wrote.

"The demeaning of young gay and lesbian students in a school environment is detrimental not only to their psychological health and well-being, but also to their educational development," Reinhardt added.

In his dissent, Judge Alex Kozinski said the majority would gag campus dissent to Poway High School's policies.

"The types of speech that could be banned by the school authorities under the Poway High School hate policy are practically without limit. Any speech code that has at its heart avoiding offense to others gives anyone with a thin skin a heckler's veto - something the Supreme Court has not approved in the past," Kozinski wrote.

Reinhardt rejected this argument.

"Perhaps our dissenting colleague believes that one can condemn homos3xuality without condemning homos3xuals. If so, he is wrong. To say that homos3xuality is shameful is to say, necessarily, that gays and lesbians are shameful," Reinhardt.

"There are numerous locations and opportunities available to those who wish to advance such an argument. It is not necessary to do so by directly condemning, to their faces, young students trying to obtain a fair and full education in our public schools," Reinhardt added.

Haters never prosper, so if its okay for people to wear what ever the fu*k they want at school, then you are saying its okay for some white racist to wear a shirt that says "I HATE Blacks/Arabics/Jews" or " "I HATE N*GG**S"
or "if your black you should be ashamed", but they cant tolerate sh*t that can lead to f!ghts in school, wearing a black panther shirt is one thing, but wearing a sh*t that says whites should be ashamed is totaly not something you can wear in school, so as wearing a shirt that says your straight is okay, but one that shows your dislike towards someone of a different preference no matter if its color gender s3xual orientation, ethnic background cant be tolerated, if its harmfual to the learning enviornment then fu*k it shouldnt be there, just liek skimpy sh*t girls cant wear in schools is harmful because you gonna be looking at her and not your test, or paying atention to the teacher..lol, but sh*t..whatever, as for not in school sh*t, yea you can wear whatever..

Corebus is right. If someone had a shirt on in school that pissed you off, you'd want it banned.

Off Topic: Weren't those Jeezy "Snowman" t-shirts banned a while back? Just wondering.
