Londyn Piglowski, a 13-year-old student in the St. Charles County, Missouri, school district was threatened with suspension for wearing a “controversial” t-shirt that was pro-virginity. It simply read, “Virginity Rocks.”
According to KMOV, a local news affiliate, the young man received the sweatshirt with the message “Virginity Rocks” across the front from his friend, Davis, for his birthday. The seventh-grader said the got the idea for the sweatshirt from a popular YouTuber they follow named Danny Duncan, who sells the apparel with that slogan.
He was then hauled into the principal’s office by a teacher who thought the slogan was inappropriate for school.
The student said, “He said it was a little bit borderline for the school and he told me to take it off or flip it inside or else they would have to take action. I didn’t think this was bad so whenever they told me to take it off I was like why am I taking this off because it’s a positive message?”
He was then threatened with suspension.
The school district responded by saying…
The District’s policy regarding student dress provides opportunities for our administrators to address student attire that is potentially disruptive to the educational environment…
This is not the first time a student has been suspended over the slogan. Another student, named Thorn, was suspended over the shirt in October.
