Haley Wenthe's mother died from breast cancer five years ago, and Jessica Sheahon's mom recently completed chemotherapy. So they set out to raise $10,000 during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

But Assistant Principal Linn Exline told them that one of the designs crossed the line and she forbid the shirts from being sold or worn at school.

The shirts bear the phrase 'Save 2nd Base' with a pair of baseballs over the wearers' breasts. Officials said the shirts violate the district's dress code, which bans clothing with an 'implied indecent meaning.'

Are these breast cancer awareness shirts too inappropriate for school?

I have a very similar question related to breast cancer shirts, but mine is for 'Save the ta-tas!'

I dont think they are inappropriate

I don't think sexual innuendos are usually okay in school, so I'm going to have to say yes on this one-not appropriate for school. If it said Save Tit Fondling, would it be allowed?Nah.

Yeah, I can see how that wouldn't be allowed at school. My former school was pretty lax, so they might have gotten away with it there though, but maybe not.

Ah. Conservatives have no sense of humour.

And liberals have no souls!

If there's a rule against the innuendo, then they're inappropriate. There's other shirts they can wear.

No, those are cute and funny!
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/26/07 - 7:46:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Everything has an implied indecent meaning.

True. If you have an innocent mind, you won't look at that and think it means something indecent...

Hell no, they are doing it for a very good cause. Not everything is done for sex or anything like that.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/10/07 - 10:57:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes. it is inappropriate for school.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/23/07 - 2:27:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I love the slogan. That's awesome. Probably inappropriate, but so what?
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/23/07 - 2:58:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think for school, it's inappropriate. But anywhere else, no.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 11/30/07 - 3:38:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
That isn't indecent meaning?
It means save your boobs, is that so wrong?! I think not.
