That he couldn't wear a particular shirt to school anymore.

He has a shirt that reads "How to hide a fart", and then it has a few stick figure images underneath.

Nothing really crude, just kid stuff. My son is ten years old, he's a normal boy fer chrissakes.

My wife agrees with the principal. I think he's taking the politically correct way out, and he's a pussy to boot.

He needs a stern talking to.

Hah, nothing wrong with that shirt. Farts are funny.

Its just farting for god's sake, every kid jokes about it.

Kids in school nowadays need to be wearing uniforms.

With all the shit they are expected to learn and master, there is no room or time to be spent on such things as "personal expression".

I say, if your childs want to express themselves, have them take a creative writing or shop class.


You know, they call it class and not recess for a reason.

Think "broken window theory" about why it's not appropriate.


If you don't know the term, Google it.

Hmmmm. Alright, I'll add a poll.

Bear in mind, however, that in the seventh grade my social studies teacher took my hat that read "Beer drinkers get more head." with an image of a full mug of beer with a full head of foam on it.

Didn't get that damn hat back for a month.

When I was a little kid in elementary school, we'd always have assemblies where all the kids had to sit on the gym floor. At one of these awful assemblies, Mr Graham the principal was standing up at the front of the assembly, hands behind his back. His microphone was in his hands, apparently right up against his ass.

Because he cut one, and the mic picked it up and amplified the report. The entire student body erupted in laughter. Graham stood up there like nothing had happened, maintaining his dignity.

Sorry, but "Things That Come Out of My Ass" is not, in my view, an appropriate topic for school. Besides, the entire joy of juvenile and/or body function humor lies in its secrecy.

The obvious advantage of school uniforms is that it removes one item of distraction from the environment by eliminating the whole "fashion" concept.

Choice of a uniform, concervative in nature, can help eliminate the prurient natured distractions those few troubled youts, such as myself, were forced to endure!

I personally would not have my kid wear a shirt like that, but I also think the principle overreacted.

When I was 10, the reason I didn’t focus on school wasn’t because of something someone was wearing. I spent my day watching the clock waiting for 3 things; recess, lunch, and home. I say ban fun, food, and clocks in schools. They’re the real distractions.

Oh and I voted that the principal was a pussy, the shirt didn’t hurt anyone.

fart ( P ) Pronunciation Key (färt) Vulgar Slang

so it is vulgar slang, but what is really wrong with the fucking word?

At 10 years old it's "How to hide a fart" with stick figure diagrams.

In a couple years it'll be "How to do a Donkey Punch" with stick figure diagrams.



Crude.
Link Posted: 9/23/2004 7:34:37 PM EST
I think the Principal is right in this case. If kids showed a bit more respect for the school system--and uniforms can be a part of that--then the schools would slowly start to improve. Maybe in the future we can get away from the 'Zero Tolerance' crap where kids get suspended for drawing a picture of a gun, or bringing a Midol tablet to school. Get the kids to behave properly, and the Principal may be able to have some leeway in discipline. Dressing properly for school is a part of it--my kids wore uniforms for the last several years, and it was nice--Navy Blue or Black bottoms, light blue or white tops (not too fancy or restrictive), and there was much less problems at the school once the uniforms were adopted. I don't know if it had to do with the attitudes of the kids, or maybe the Adminstration could focus on real problems instead of having to pull a kid into the office because their clothes were inappropriate.

Not appropriate attire for school. Anything that distracts from Education - his or others - is unhelpful.

Did I do the poll right? Isn't there supposed to be some kind of number attached to it or something? Is nobody actually voting? My first time using this feature, so maybe I'm just missing something here.

Anyway, the general consensus is obviously pointing towards a distinct etiquette faux pas on my part. Fine, I was wrong in telling my son he could wear the shirt to school.

I must've been a freak when I was ten. I thought farts, burping the alphabet, shootin' spit wads, and putting a lizard in the teachers desk was funny.

Yup. I was a real malcontent.

Did you really expect a different answer from a bunch of mature conservative right wingers?

As ths is arfcom I will tell you how to win with the wifey.

Go to www.duh.com and ask the same question. They will tell you about how the man is keepin Johnny down, how Johnny has rights and how Johnny needs to express himself.

Around my house Johnny gets his ass kicked cuz that my job. I'm "The man".

I side with you DesertRider. He's just a 10 year old kid for crying out loud. Anything worse though, and I might think differently about it.

It's all about where you draw the line. Fart jokes are typical 10 year old behavior, and it's all in jest, so I don't see anything wrong with it.

also, the principal over reacted.

One thing I remember is that there's a time to turn a blind eye and the principal didn't.

those shirts are funny. I had a bunch when I was in my early-mid teens.

hey, to all the fart-haters out there, would you rather have the kid wearing gang colors, or a Kerry t-shirt?
Link Posted: 9/23/2004 10:35:14 PM EST
I send my kids to school at least once a week with a t-shirt that reads "fuck subtlety"

Never been commented on by so much as a janitor.

I suspect none of the teachers and administrators can read.
