Not Breasts, But Other Female Parts


Wearing the word "vagina" is apparently against the dress code in Minnesota schools.

After seeing the off-Broadway hit, The Vagina Monologues, two high-school girls in Winona, MN, were inspired to wear buttons stating "I (heart) My Vagina." According to the AP report today:
...The students were admonished for wearing buttons inspired by the show... The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota has offered to help students fight any consequences from their actions.
As a means of preventing the students from offending those to whom the mere mention of "vagina" is an affront, the school's efforts have failed. The AP reports that more than 100 students have ordered T-shirts bearing "I (heart) My Vagina" for girls and "I Support Your Vagina" for boys.

This incident follows the suspension in 2001 of a 17-year-old Michigan boy who came dressed as a vagina to a Halloween costume contest. He won first prize in the school contest, then was suspended from school for a week.

Maybe it's something in the milk.
