Barbie Supports the Troops
I like this lawyer's sense of logic, and his sense of humor, from Wired magazine:
A New York teenager is suing teachers who suspended her from school for wearing a "Barbie Is a Lesbian" T-shirt. Natalie Young, 14, who is an out lesbian, said a teacher laughed at her and the principal refused to allow her to return to class wearing the T-shirt. Young was suspended and told she'd be sent home if she wore the T-shirt again. On a prior day, teachers made Young remove rainbow-colored beads from her hair, her lawyer said. "Schools cannot legally engage in this type of selective, content-based suppression of speech," lawyer Dan Perez said. "If she had worn a 'Barbie Supports the Troops in the War in Iraq' T-shirt, she would have been called a patriot."
