Note, this artcle has pictures/video of lesbian high school girls. If you can't handle looking at gay people being gay with each other, don't click the link.

Brennan students petition to reinstate lesbian couple's yearbook photo | kens5.com San Antonio

The photo was selected for the Valentine's Day page but was later rejected. Rivera said it was removed only after the yearbook supervisor discovered the picture showcased a lesbian couple.
"You shouldn't be discriminated against just because you're gay," Rivera said. "You shouldn't worry about people bashing you or talking behind your back just for you to be you."

If you listen to the video, the picture was chosen by the school's STUDENTS. Who obviously, don't have a problem with high school lesbians. The world, it's a changing before our eyes, ain't it? However, your gayness can still be put down by an old dude in a suit. Maybe it ain't changed that much at all.

I think it was a very cute photo. I wouldn't have been offended by it. If the school officials are going to band that picture because it is 'too intimate' then there better not be any intimate photos of heterosexual couples in that yearbook.

I remember when the TV show "Will and Grace" became a big hit having the realization that the turning point had been reached. The old dudes will die off, and the young dudes will see this whole thing as a non-issue. That's progress.

Great OP sensationalism, one of the two in the picture looks like any other shaggy dog EMO.

How can one tell (in that picture) if it's a boy, a girl or a thing?

That school district has a policy against public affection and this picture fits that to a tee......

Here's the student handbook (RULES) of the Northside Independent School District, Brennan HS:

http://nisd.net/sites/default/files/...ndbooks/24.pdf

You'll notice if you read it it doesn't distinguish between sexes, ALL public affection should be displaying affection appropriately (page C-1).

Another gay bait thread fail...

NFN I wonder why the OP only used part of the administrations quote, here the whole quote:

Quote:
Administrators in the Northside ISD said several leaders reviewed the photo and determined it was a little too intimate and violated the student handbook policy regarding public display of affection.
This thread goes to show you just how little faith one should have with the GBLT crowd when it comes to the reporting of what actually occurred....

There are people who find this kind of thing highly offensive. Since the school yearbook is a very important memento for many people, I can understand why they did not want a picture like this in there. Although, if it were my kids yearbook, I'd just tear it out and be good to go. LOL

School systems have complete control over what goes in a yearbook. This is not even up for question.

Supreme Court has held up several times that kids have no rights in a public school.

And people get discrminated against everyday. Doesn't matter if your gay or not. And discrimination is more often than not a good thing. Might as well get used to it. Hell, embrace it. It makes your life better.

Plus people under 18 don't have the same rights as adults. Kids can cry about crap all the time. **** 'em. They are kids. They have no clue about how real life works.

As you saw in the video, there are other just as intimate photos supposedly in the yearbook, so what you said make no sense. However, if you didn't watch it, what you said makes perfect sense.

It was already plated for printing and was pulled at the last minute. If it was too intimate, then why was it even tp be in the yearbook to start with? That's what her dad says in the vid.

PS. if one responds to a gay bait thread, does that mean they were successfully baited to respond?

People can't ignore the gays forever. I mean if you're gonna hate them because the Bible tells you so, then hate all the other things the Bible tells you to hate.

Didn't make that big of a splash around here. At the end of the day, they are out of the yearbook and will go on with their lives. Because the don't exist in the yearbook doesn't mean they are not here.


she was banned from yearbook...Too sexy?




how about her for wearing a Tux?


One banned for not wearing "enough" clothes...the other for "wrong" clothes...

And what in the wide wide world of sports does a liberal idea like a Japanese internment camp have to do with the right of a school system to decide what goes into a yearbook they own?

If you are attempting to make a point of some kind you should start over.

P.S. Where did I say "follow the rules" or even imply it????
