Skip to comments.Maryland teen [boy] suspended for wearing skirt to school: report
Posted on 05/19/2012 7:01:42 PM PDT by madprof98
A Maryland teen is charging his high school with discrimination after he was suspended for wearing a skirt to class.
Warren Evans told NBC 4 Washington in an interview broadcast Friday that teachers at Calvert High in southern Maryland sent him home for dressing like a girl earlier this month.
"I feel annoyed that they would go out of their way to make it a problem just with me wearing a skirt," the teen, who says he is openly bisexual, told the station."
School officials wouldn't comment on the suspension, but the district's dress code policy said it's up to teachers to decide whether students clothes or haircuts are appropriate.
Evans, who didn't give his age, said the handbook isn't specific enough.
"It didn't say anywhere in the code of conduct or dress code that boys can't dress like girls," he told NBC 4, while appearing on camera in a tight pink skirt, high heels and a long black wig.

Oh no. What happens when political correctness goes up against school rules? If the dress code indicates that each sex should dress according to their sex, is that discriminatory?
On the other hand, if the dress code is silent on the matter of dressing in a manner associated with the opposite sex, was he discriminated against?
And what about his being openly “bi-sexual”? Remember, bi-sexual is the “B” in the “LGBT” community. Could Lambda Legal and the ACLU get involved with suing this school???
These school administrators are paid way too much money to be this stupid.
If Obama and Moochelle had a son, he’d absolutely look like Warren.

why was it too short?
Let me ask you this. What boundaries or guidelines should we have? I would agree with the idea that the last thing we need to see here are lawsuits over gay rights and all that crap.
However, what is wrong with having certain minimal standards? When these kids get out in the world, they will be working and have to comply with dress codes at work. They will have all sorts of restrictions on their “freedoms” as defined by liberals. You don’t have unlimited rights to “self expression” and all that. None of us do.
All of us, including liberals, have to do certain things to conform to guidelines set by our employers, schools, and society at large. The real question, in my opinion, is where do we draw the lines.
If we keep going the way we are with “gay” rights....employers will also be sued....and charged with discrimination when some transgendered, bisexual, whatever who dresses weirdly wants to be the teacher in a 3rd grade classroom...
Way back in the puritan days of the 1980s when I was in school, shorts were out of the question. If girls wore skirts they had to be knee length.
When the class of 1980 has shirts printed up that said “Kick ass class” they weren’t allowed to wear them in school.
"Sadie Hawkins Day".
Of course, this was in the '60's and '70's, when going to school was a lot like going to church.
Now that I think of it, we used to have "Sadie Hawkins Day" at the church as well.
Lighten up, people.
Well, at least he/she wasn’t tased and handcuffed by the school *resource officer*.
I graduated HS in 1970 and the girls were wearing micro-minis then.
Not in my school but we were a pretty conservative rural district.
Homosexuals claim that bisexual people are really homosexuals who are afraid to come out of the closet. You see, if you are “bi-curious” you ARE gay, but if you try to “convert” (or counsel) someone who is “curious” you are a big meany.
In high school? That pathetic FREAK looks to be about 30 years old.
Uniforms would be a good idea.
This kid needs psychological counseling.
It is my understanding that there is no such thing as a “bi-sexual.” These people, given a choice of a sexual partner, will always choose a member of their own sex. They are homosexuals.
This is a somewhat similar situation. It's only bits of cloth! Who gives a flying flip what people want to wear as long as their naughty bits don't show.
Most guys would look simply ridiculous in a skirt! Of course, some women also do. (ducking and running) :-)
But a few guys can pull it off...like Andrej Pejic, he looks good in a skirt and is a fashion model....to each his own, why should I care....just don't try to convince me to wear one.
my best friend Joe was sent home for wearing a ‘Fuck Iran’ (w middle finger) t-shirt in 1981
We could get away with “Hey Iran” shirts with Mickey Mouse flipping the bird but that was about as far as we could go.
Do it right, boy: http://www.utilikilts.com/
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
A skirt? What about the Wig!???
Looks like buckwheat with long hair.
Best ignored. Way too much attn over this.
In Howard county Maryland it is illegal to discriminate against transsexuals including bathroom use, passed late last year.
Sounds like we need a boy to pull this there in the public schools to wake these sheep up.
A great argument for school uniforms
I have a vivid imagination too...
I'm with you 100 percent. The school administrators should be smart enough to have the students wear uniforms. They were not that smart. They are just highly paid. Now they have walked the school into a lawsuit.
If it is not in writing in the manual, then they can't send him home. Perhaps it is in writing. In the private sector it would be clearly spelled out. Anyone know if this school had such a written policy?
Looks weird. Great music. Paid lots of taxes and created lots of jobs. He is definitely different.
The workforce will have to attend sensitivity training sessions.....it's coming.
Fine, now suspend all the girls wearing pants...
It is my understanding that there is no such thing as a bi-sexual. These people, given a choice of a sexual partner, will always choose a member of their own sex. They are homosexuals.

The way I heard it was:
If they claim they are bi it almost doubles ones chance of a date on any given night.
Nah, he would have a bigger butt!
In the late 80âs my school banned shorts but girls could wear skirts as long as they were past the length of your fingers when your arms were at your side. Boys complained because they said it was like wearing shorts for the girls, which were banned. So a bunch of boys went out and bought skirts and wore them to school. The Principal made sure they were the proper length and told them to go ahead and look like idiots if that’s what they wanted. They were so uncomfortable, having never wore a skirt, they never did again. End of story! Now the Principal would be sued for saying “idiot”.
There are womyn who, by indoctrination and abuse, consider themselves to be “unwanted” by men and succumb to lesbian encounters.
Gay scout masters “gaydar” also indoctrinate young initiates into homosexuality.
Homos are not born, they are taught.
My point is where is the “heterosexual curious” crowd among the “homosexual” community?
They are not permitted to examine that side of their psyche. They are DOMINATED by homosexual authority figures to submit to the sexual delights of their superiors and not question what they are being told be done to their body.
This is the goal behind the “anti-bullying” movement going through the schools. The direct approach of forcing schools to teach kids that homosexuality, transgender, etc. is “ok” usually fosters heated opposition from parents - but, this “bullying” issue is the new route into the schools for homosexuality.
You can’t laugh at a boy who comes dressed as a woman or a girls dressed as a boy (a natural reaction from children) - that’s bullying. Expressing disagreement with homosexuality as being “natural” - that’s now defined as “bullying”.
It was the same when I was in school back in the 60s. If a teacher thought a dress or skirt was too short the girl would get on her knees. If the hem didnt touch the floor all the way around she was sent home. Bras were required too, if the girl had developed breasts and the teacher thought she wasnt wearing one she had to jump up and down. Too much jiggle and she was sent to the nurses office. No bra and she was sent home.
I can’t believe everyone missed this - the kid took a weapon to school and is possibly going to be expelled. He took a weapon to “ARSENAL High School!” What do they expect when they name a school like that! ;-)
