These Kids and Their Rock and Roll

Chloe Rubiano, an 8th grade student at Ramay Junior High in Fayetteville, N.C., was sent to the office because of her shirt. “I just really like the shirt because I was always raised that way,” Rubiano said. “I didn’t really think anyone would make a big deal out of it.” The school disagreed, though, and Rubiano was made to remove the shirt because of its “sexual content” — because the shirt says “Virginity Rocks” on the front. Rubiano’s mother, Bambi Crozier, was upset about the decision until a friend gave some perspective. “If you have the right to say ‘Virginity Rocks’, you also have the right to say, ‘Sex Rocks’. And, I’m like, ‘Oh, Lord, he is right’,” Crozier said. (MS/KFSM Fayetteville) ...And Lord knows we shouldn’t teach that to our children.
