A young man at my daughters' high school wore a shirt to school that said on it, "I am straight".
He did it as a joke since many of the kids at this school wear gay pride t shirts. My older daughter is friends with his girlfriend. She told my daughter he didn't mean it as hateful, or bashing gay people. He saw it at Spencer's gift shop and bought it.
He was sent to the principal's office and was told he had to change shirts or else he would be sent home. Since he had no change of clothes they called his parents to pick him up. They were both at work and couldn't pick him up. The principal made him turn his shirt inside out and gave him detention.

What? So kids can wear GAY PRIDE shirts but you can't wear a STRAIGHT PRIDE shirt? That's a double standard and a half! That in no way bashes anyone, it is just him being proud to be straight. We encourage gays to be proud to be gay what is the difference? What happened to being proud of your sexuality regardless.... or does that just count for the gay kids?
Baed on this info, OP~ it appears to be a Double Double Standard. I agree with Crissy.
