    So now we're banning shirts that "might be interpreted by stupid people as violent."

    What nonsense.

    What "political correctness" leads to...

    a lack of "critical thought correctness".

    "I will hurt you physically...." does kind of say "violent" to me. I don't watch the show so .....

    But the "....and metaphysically" kind of makes it sound silly and I'd ignore it.

    Whether meant in jest or not, a student wearing anything that threatens violence in a government school is (usually) going to be in violation of the school dress code.

    "Oh, it was a joke" isn't an excuse to violate the dress code. Even if everyone was familiar with the show and the joke, it wouldn't be reason to allow a violation of the dress code. Go ahead and try to explain to a school of hundreds why it's okay to allow that shirt, but when they come in with another one from a less savory show or video game but it's still a "joke," that one isn't allowed.

    Common sense...

    Don't know what is says about my manness here, but I agree with the ladies. I have no idea what goes on on DD, so as a parent I would be a bit bothered I today's culture by any shirt that said 'I am going to hurt you'

    People who truly plan to hurt someone don't wear a shirt announcing their intentions... unfortunately.

    When I was in junior high I had several guys tell me they were going to hurt me - and some of them did :)

    But they didn't announce it on a mass-produced store-bought t-shirt, did they? :smilewinkgrin:

    Honestly, if one of 'my' bullies wore a shirt that said that I would have been terrified.

    The point is, my friend, that they didn't.

    Why cannot we just accept the fact that this was nothing more than an over-reaction on the part of hyper-sensitive school administrators?

    It isn't like this is the first time it has happened, and situations such as this happen frequently. Common sense amongst those in authority- i.e., those that should know better- is at an all-time low, imho.

    I just disagree old buddy. I wonder how folks would respond if a known Muslim wore a t-shirt saying 'I am going to hurt you?'

    Not everyone is aware of the Duck Dynasty culture.

    There were "100% Cotton and Your Momma Picked it" t-shirts worn in the early 90's in a school my wife taught at. Much controversy over that. It didn't say anything about hurting anyone, but it made people want to hurt someone.

    Well ... you're an administrator ... do something about it! :laugh:

    Just kidding. Lighter exchange than what we've had lately.

    Not the same thing. I struggle to understand why liberals have such a hard time making legitimate comparisons.
