    Boy Allowed To Wear Rainbow Wristband Following Demands From The ACLU

    PHOENIX -- Peoria Unified School District is now allowing a gay 14-year-old student to wear a rainbow wristband at school following demands from the American Civil Liberties Union.Eighth grader Chris Quintanilla wore a rainbow wristband with the words "Rainbows are gay" to Parkridge Elementary School in March.Natali Quintanilla, the boy's mother, said the principal called her and told her he would not allow Chris to wear the wristband.Quintanilla contacted the ACLU following the incident; the union wrote a letter to the district demanding it rescind its ban on the wristband, saying the ban was a First Amendment violation.
    "It's a good thing that the school has finally realized that it can't just disregard First Amendment rights of students who are gay," Quintanilla said.

    What about a kid that wants to wear a wrist band with the words "Reagan" or "Nobama"? Would they support that? How bout a kid wearing a S&W T-Shirt?

    The supremes have already said it's a free speech issue so long as it is not patently offensive.
