School Asks Teen To Change Out of 'Virginity Rocks' T-Shirt
An Arkansas junior high school made a teenage girl change out of a T-shirt that reads “Virginity Rocks” because, according to the school, the shirt could raise awkward questions about sex and any potentially disruptive clothing is banned.
“I just really like the shirt because I was always raised that way,” eighth grader Chloe Rubiano said. “I didn’t really think anyone would make a big deal out of it.”
On Outnumbered today, Jedediah Bila said whether or not Rubiano should be able to wear her “Virginity Rocks” shirt depends upon the school's dress code policy.
Does the school allow T-shirts with logos and text, and they made an exception to ban this particular article of clothing? Or, would this be the only T-shirt in the classroom with text on it, which certainly would create a distraction.
“It would create a distraction in the classroom in the same way that if a kid came in and wore a shirt that says ‘Sex Rocks,’” Bila said.
“I think we’re a little too obsessed with this virginity thing,” #oneluckyguy Tom Shillue argued. “I think it puts all the emphasis on a sex act. I like virtue.”
Harris Faulkner pointed out there is already so much sex talk in schools and in our culture that adding a little balance by having a discussion about chastity could be a good thing.
