Student was asked to cover an ‘offensive’ T-shirt that had a pro-equality message


The unnamed girl, who attends the Albritton Middle School in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, wore a top which read: “Why be racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic when you could just be quiet?” The girl’s mom, identified in media reports as Katie, said that the teachers asked her daughter to cover the T-shirt which they believed to be offensive. Katie added that she had no idea that mature people who teach kids in 21st century co0uld have so strange views that the message against discrimination offends them. The mother stood up for her daughter and said that her T-shirt did not hurt anyone, but sexists, homophobes, transphobes and racists, against whom she campaigns wearing such a T-shirt, did. Public Affairs Officer Jade Fulce with the Department of Defence Education Activity said that the T-shirt did not violate the dress code policy, so the school officials should have apologized to the parents, and it was done the same day.
