Middle School Bans Teen’s “Virginity Rocks” T-Shirt
- An Arkansas middle school is under fire for banning a student’s t-shirt which reads “Virginity Rocks.”
- Although 13-year-old Cloe Rubiano is saving herself for marriage, school officials are unhappy she is sharing that message with students at Ramay Junior High. Rubiano purchased the shirt at a Christian festival to display her pro-life values. The shirt says “Virginity Rocks” on the front, and “I’m loving my husband and I haven’t even met him” on the back.
- However, when she wore the shirt to school, officials banned the shirt and made her wear a school-issued gym shirt instead, saying the shirt might lead to uncomfortable conversations about sex.
