SC high school suspends girl after declaring her ‘nobody knows I’m a lesbian’ shirt is ‘disruptive’

Published

A South Carolina high school student was suspended from school for wearing a T shirt that says “nobody knows I’m a lesbian.”

Briana Popour, a student at Chesnee High School , was told she could change her shirt or be sent home, News2 reports. Popour is an openly gay high school senior who said she wears the shirt for the benefit of other gay students.

“Isn’t that what school is supposed to teach you? To be happy with who you are? Maybe people will be more comfortable showing who they are because you should be able to wear what you want to wear,” Popour told the station.

According to News2, the school administrator that sent Popour home didn’t respond to requests for comment. But the district emailed them saying the shirt was “offensive and distracting” and linked to a section of the school’s dress code that says clothing cannot be “distracting, revealing, overly suggestive or otherwise disruptive.”

Popour told the station she was pulled out of class and told her shirt was disruptive. She said there is nothing in the school’s dress code that forbids students from expressing their sexual orientation.

The administrator told her “not everything is in the handbook” when she brought that up.

Now Popour’s mother wants to know what about the shirt is offensive.

She believes her daughter was discriminated against.

“He does not like people in his school wearing anything that says anything about lesbians, gays, or bisexuals,” she said.

On Saturday, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) gave MSNBC's Alex Witt a brief rundown of what he wants to learn from former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks at her closed-door testimony next week — and warned that if Hicks tries to use executive privilege as a shield, Democrats will not stand for it.

"Let's talk about Hope Hicks," said Witt. "What do you expect to hear from her that she has not already offered in testimony?"

"Here's what's important about Hope Hicks," said Deutch. "She was a key part of the Trump campaign, which is a large part of the report is focused on. She was a key part of the Trump Administration in the early days, and that's the reason that she's a prominent figure in the Mueller report."
