Student Wearing ‘Virginity Rocks’ T-Shirt Sent Home From School

“Virginity Rocks” is the message 1 eighth-grader at Ramay Junior High School in Fayetteville, Arkansas, tried to share with her classmates, but school officials promptly put a stop to it.

In a report from 5NEWS, the school stated that it decided to send Chloe Rubiano home for wearing a shirt that contained “sexual content,” which she had acquired from a Christian-based festival.

“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.”

But Ramay administrators saw something more harmful in the “Virginity Rocks” T-shirt.

Rubiano said she wore the shirt to school because she’d worn it to other schools in the past without incident. However, during one of her classes, she was called to the office and told they would be sending her home.

Bambi Crozier, Chloe’s mom, was “surprised” by the decision. In comments to the news site, she addressed the decision.

“This is part of sex [education] to me. Virginity is where you need to be,” Crozier said. “It represents what she believes… I’m very thankful that Chloe has this belief.”

Still, Crozier was open to the counterpoint, and shared a comment that her friend had shared that made her reconsider.

“If you have the right to say ‘Virginity Rocks,’ you also have the right to say, ‘Sex Rocks.’ And, I’m like, ‘Oh, Lord, he is right,'” Crozier said, adding that while her daughter will continue to wear the shirt out in public, she will not be wearing it again to Ramay Junior High School.

“She needs to respect the wishes that the leadership has. And, she will. She’s a good kid,” Crozier said.

It is good to see the family not try to press their beliefs completely down other students’ throats. In this case, Chloe shows us where the fine line is between practicing and being proud of your beliefs and imposing them on others, unlike in a previous situation reported on by The Inquisitr.

In the previous incident, Dads decided to take “virginity portraits” with their young daughters as a symbol of the daughter’s pledge to save herself for marriage.

While the response to that story was mixed, it was hard to look at the photos without getting a bit creeped out.

But what do you think, readers? Was Ramay out of line making Chloe go home for wearing the Virginity Rocks T-shirt, or was it the right call?
