An Arkansas junior high school student was forced to change out of her “Virginity Rocks” t-shirt due to a supposed dress code violation.
Chloe Rubiano, an 8th grader at Ramay Junior High in Fayetteville, wore the “Virginity Rocks” T-shirt to school after purchasing it at a Christian-based festival.
“It is one of my favorite shirts,” said Chloe Rubiano to 5News.
School officials told her it was inappropriate as it contained sexual content.
“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.”
Rubiano said she had worn the shirt before at former schools, but the vice principal at Ramay told her it could distract the classroom and possibly “opens up too many doors for conversations.”
Bambi Crozier, Rubiano’s mother, finds the shirt bold but not inappropriate, reports FOX31.
“This is part of sex (education) to me. Virginity is where you need to be,” Crozier said. “It represents what she believes.”
Rubiano had to change her T-shirt into a school-issued gym shirt for the remainder of the school day.
As for her “Virginity Rocks” T-shirt’s future, she plans to still wear it in public.
Rubiano will not wear the T-shirt to school again, though.
“She needs to respect the wishes that the leadership has. And, she will. She’s a good kid,” Crozier said.
