He just needs to claim he’s gay. Then all will be forgiven.

First of all. Naming a boy Skylar was their first mistake. Tons of other mistakes later and now we see his parents let him carry a purse?

Kudos to the school for suspending him

The kid had a bag. So what ?

Is this not a free country anymore ?

It’s a wonder the school nazis didn’t confiscate it due to fear he might put a weapon inside it.

That purse does not go with the outfit at all. The fashion police should arrest this guy immediately.

There is absolute nothing wrong with a guy carrying a purse. Here's mine...

Did you see that pic at the link? Are those chick jeans he is wearing or what?

The article doesn’t say it - but its not hard to imagine this boy is acting out and the school is trying to corral him.

They named the kid Skylar and likely bought him the purse. Public shame disappeared a long time ago, see Bill Clinton.

The proper spelling of the name, at least the masculine form, is Schuyler.

So he was carrying a purse. Big deal. Wasn’t in violation of school policy it seems.

Sheer idiocy.

As twisted as this thought is, there are parents probably twisted enough to think that any added disability or traits of diversity to their child’s portfolio is a key to greater personal success...their own idea of a perverse promise of prosperity may come through their child`s handicap or victimized status.

Johnny is strangling small animals? Well, at least he can get a check for that. Now Johnny wants to be called Susie? Well, at least if he doesn’t get hired at a job, he can always sue. And if we can find one more Christian bakery left in business, his wedding will be free.

This situation should never even have happened if that kids “parents” weren’t bats*it insane and allowed a BOY to carry a damn purse to school!

The world sure has changed.Back in the day, if a guy carried a purse at my school, getting suspended would have been the least of his worries.

I am certain that is the case. I just looked up what a Vera Bradley purse is. Its a cloth purse, mostly bright multi-colored, floral or paisley.

The school could make the same claim that many schools make about make-up or attire, they say that it is a distraction, but then they would have to apply the same rule to girls. Better to ignore the behavior and let the kid make a fool of himself, while warning other students not to make fun of him.

When someone is making a fool of themselves, it often the right thing to do to get out of the way and let the person get on with it.

I used to carry .490 round balls in my wife’s old leather purse. Of course I was also carrying a .50 cal. TC. Hawken at the same time.

I need to get the old rifle out again. I don’t think I have fired it in 30 years.

No we are not free, dammit.

But if the kid wants to carry a handbag, let him. I hope it's a nice one.

I went to school in the 50's/60's. Come on people, there was no doubt about the sexual orientation of some of the guy/girls and girl/guys. Same thing when I was in the Service. Is one of them carrying a purse going to make you say "I was shocked. I never realized."

Since I avoided the people I believed were gay, let them wear purses to remove all doubt.

When I was attending CSU, Chico, one of my college professors had a son with her “common law” husband, and they named his Sky. He grew up using his mother’s maiden name until he reached his teen years. At that time he began using his father’s last name, which I can’t recall. His mother’s maiden name was Blue. Her first name was Jay. Libtards are so messed up in the head.

My sister-in-law gave me a hand carved leather purse years ago. It holds two boxes of 12 ga shotgun shells perfectly. 50 rounds.

I remember an old man years ago. He always went to town carrying a woman’s purse, but then he also rolled up his pants cuffs to mid calf.

Wierd.

I think I still have that purse and it is still full of round balls. If it did not have some decorative triangles sewed on, it would look just like it was made for black powder.

Old Testament. After Christ's sacrifice we became individuals responsible for our individual salvation. The New Testament is God speaking to His Church not collectives. My salvation is not based on what my city, county, state, country or world does. It is solely dependent on my actions.

New Testament says “the scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35)—Jesus’ own words. And most of the Old Testament prophecies are for the end times anyhow.

I remember an old man years ago. He would stick one leg in a little red wagon and push himself to town. When he got to town he would pull the wagon. Home was downhill so he would wave his arms as he rode home. We all knew he was not all there. Weird but not all there. I have trouble judging a lot of people because I don't understand a lot of people.

But on the other hand I don't pretend every thing is normal, I think just like you, weird.
