Perez Hilton v. Greenbrier High School

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 10:19 AM

As you read here yesterday, Cole Goforth was sent home from Greenbrier High School for wearing an "I Love Lady Gay-Gay" shirt.

Now Internet-sensation and gossip-monger Perez Hilton is involved. And I think we all know what this means — photos of Greenbrier High School all over the internet with MS Paint caliber penises drawn on, rumors about Greenbrier High School being secretly gay or a big old slut, and soon enough, Greenbrier High School drunkenly flashing its cooter at the paparazzi.

In other words, good fun for those of us watching from the cheap seats.

Goforth's mother is upset because kids are allowed to wear T-shirts that express religious or "I am an idiot with no historical knowledge who thinks it's edgy to upset black people" sentiments, so she felt that her son was being singled out for expressing gay-positive sentiments.

To which we all say, "Duh."

Listen, I don't mean to point out the obvious solution here, but if no other minister's daughter is going to say it, I will. Clearly, Goforth needs to start designing his own T-shirts and make him one up with "2 Samuel 1:26" printed in great big letters and wear that instead.

That would have to be fine, right? After all, it's a Bible verse. Is Greenbrier High School going to start getting picky about which Bible verses are acceptable? That would be a can of worms.
