High School Student Sent Home For Wearing Lady GaGa Shirt!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLady GaGaLGBT


How ridiculous is this???

15-year-old Cole Goforth was sent home from his high school in White House, Tennessee, on Monday for wearing a GaGalupe shirt that says, "I Heart Lady Gay Gay"!!!!!

Are you kidding us???

Greenbrier High School is claiming the defense that a shirt with the word "gay" on it could potentially make students feel "uncomfortable."

"I just think my sexuality isn't widely accepted around here, so of course they are going to single me out," said Cole.

"I think they are singling him out… They've made statements that if he wore this in California, he'd fit in just fine," Cole's mom, Julie Gordon added.

No kidding!

Apparently other students are allowed to wear "religious shirts and rebel flag shirts" to school, so why can't Cole wear his Lady Gay Gay tee????


Little Monsters, this is unacceptable!

    Hey P, could I send my kid to school with a shirt that reads:

    "Perez takes it in the ass and loves being a bukkake target"? If so, then I'm on your side on this one. If not, go fuck yourself.

    This is disgusting that highschools are being so homophobic…Yet students can wear the iron cross and shit WTF PEOPLE!?!?!??!WE WANT CHANGE NOW.

  3. 3

    I agree..lame!

    Glad I live in Holland.

    Wow that is some serious bullshit. What is wrong with some people? First the prom thing and now this?!

  6. buck says – reply to this


    its not ok to be gay

  7. 7

    Seriously people it is 2010 its time to be a little more open minded!

  8. 8

    That's ridiculous. Stupid homophobic jerks.

  9. 9

    WTF does this have to do with you, moron? Just because you think it's ok to be flamingly gay doesn't mean the rest of the world does. School isn't the place to flaunt your sexuality, so I say more power to the school.

  10. 10

    I live in TN and this is what happens! Come on Monsters, lets make a shit storm. :)

    This is disgraceful. The world really isn't getting any better. Anthony Ireland

  12. 12

    OMG…how ridiculous!!! Why the hate? I cannot understand these ppl…(and I'd shoot myself if I could).

    P.S. I want that shirt! XD

  13. 13

    People like the people at his school make me sick!

  14. 14

    They won't
    let me wear my
    I ♥ Cock
    shirt to work.
    Imgine that!

  15. 15

    It does not say Lady GaGa, that would be fine. It says gay gay. The school is right on this one.

  16. 16

    thats coz, despite the volume of the minority being shreik loud, the majority of the planet are sickened, and while because of PC attitude they would never say it, they sure as hell wont put up with it. The tide is turning and the fight back is begining. Reign your necks in.

  17. 17

    Really I want proof other students can wear the other shirts, they aren't allowed at our schools.

  18. 18

    Re: LillyJean – Whatever happened to "be who you are"? And it's okay for heterosexual couples to make out in the halls and flaunt THEIR sexuality but not others?

  19. 19

    yeah maybe they thought it would make others uncomfortable because its USED AS A SLUR SOMETIMES?? duh?? you are so retarded. the school has every right to do this- theyre probably trying to prevent people like CANDACE from getting butt hurt!!!

  20. 20

    yeah maybe they thought it would make others uncomfortable because its USED AS A SLUR SOMETIMES?? duh?? you are so retarded. the school has every right to do this- theyre probably trying to prevent people like CANDACE from getting butt hurt!!!

  21. 21

    im pretty sure any school would have done the same. theres always someone its gunna make uncomfortable. it doesnt matter if its 2010 or not.

  22. 22

    I think the point is that other kids get to wear shirts with religious symbols on them (among other things), which may offend (although they do not realize it because their ignorance makes them believe that there is such thing as a 'right' religion and they belong to it) others as well.
    On the other hand, it's just a goddamn shirt. People are so uptight.

  23. 23

    if some girl walked into my high school with a gaga shirt on she'd be jumped

  24. 24

    id wear it anyway fuck school

  25. 25

    I went to high school in Nashville and we werent allowed to wear the rebel flag shirts because it offended black people. Its fuckin stupid because we cant have southern pride and sport out flag because people get their panties in their asses over something that happened hundreds of years ago.

  26. 26

    WTFFFF? why do people make such a big deal with gays i mean is like being gay doesn't make you be alienesque or different you're still a fucking person that nothing makes you be above or behind anyone.. fucking wankers they always ask for equality but they can't give it to others.. and i'm not gay, lesbian or bi.. it's just stupid.. people are such bitchess .poor coleD:

  27. 27

    Re: LillyJean – Hmm, a bit close minded are we?

  28. 28

    stupid kid is being singled out because he's the only one wearing the stupid shirt!!…lol

  29. Ofra says – reply to this


    His ass shoulda been sent home!!! And it's not about support or against!! Do some reasearch.. there are all kinds of t-shirts apparrel in general that kids are not allowed to wear from rock stars to American flags. Put them in fucking uniforms and get over it!!

  30. 30

    thank goodness there are people out there who still aren't afraid to tell these homos this is not acceptable…good for you Greenbrier High School, now if others would follow suit we can beat these queers back to the closets they crawled out of….

  31. 31

    school isn't the place for that kind of shirt…just wait til he gets into the real world and discovers it's not appropriate to wear to work either…lol

  32. 32

    kid needs to wear that shit on his own time

  33. 33

    This Takes The Serious Piss! Let Him Wear Gagaloo!

  34. 34

    Ridiculous- busy worrying about that shirt!
    Re: buck – It's not?

  35. 35

    This is pathetic! Lady Gaga is about liberation not suppression! Wear what you want and love what you want! Suck it White House, Tennessee!

  36. 36

    Re: XHollywoodXfame – The iron cross is not an inherently evil symbol. Its origin (1813), in regard to the military, was as an award for bravery.
    Re: LillyJean – I agree. School is about education, not about what you do with your genitals. It is not an appropriate place for statements about one's sexuality.
    Re: buck – While I do think that bi-sexual people have choice, I don't think that homosexuals can choose to be heterosexual. There is no "cure" for homosexuality; it is what it is.

  37. 37

    Omg that is apsolutly stupid and that high school is a pice of shit ima wear that to my skool wonder what they'll do

  38. 38

    Re: emmacatherine – I don't think any couples should "make out" in school halls, and that applies to heterosexuals. It happens … I know … but school isn't the place for that. People should be who they are, but there is a time and place for everything.

  39. 39

    I find it comical that you have a "Lady Gaga Breaking News" category to your blog, but hey, what do I know….other than you have terrible taste in music.

    Re: LillyJean – exactly!!!

  43. Visa says – reply to this


    I don't think this had anything with the Gay. It probably had more to do with mutant the T'shirt was referring to. If I was a High School princple and I saw one of my students wearing a Lady GaGa concert T'shirt, I would have to suspend them for the rest of the school year for the safety of the other students. No telling what kind of diseases you could catch at one of her concerts.

  44. 44

    Re: STEFFANlE – So are we!

  45. 45

    They should not have sent him home for the sexual orientation label(that is sad) but rather for the bad taste in music.

  46. 46

    Apparently, Gaga's pissed off about this too.

  47. 47

    seriously?? ¬¬”

  48. 48

    if u dont like gagaloo y are u on this fucking article! fuck off nobody wants you on here

  49. 49

    Re: buck – Really? Because I think it's not okay to be an intolerant bigot.

  50. 50

    Re: Visa – agreed. if that student was anywhere in a 200 foot radius of that stage, there are sure to be trace amounts of herpes, gonnorhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and AIDS all over it. to be honest, the entire school needs to be hosed down by a hazmat crew ASAP.

  51. 51

    They were right to send him home or to make him change his shirt. What the hell is wrong with you Perez? One minute you want equal rights but because some kid had a shirt on that said Lady Gay Gay it's alright? People us Gay as a slur word its not a word people us saying it nicely to another. Grow up just because you're gay doesn't mean the rest of society gotta go by ur rules!!!! I could careless if anyone is gay or not, I don't care but you are wrong with this one. How many times has a kid in school called someone gay to hurt them??? But wearing a t-shirt with ur Lady Gaga it's alright. LMAO WHAT A HYPOCRITE

    Re: buck – so i'm wondering why you're on this blog site when you think it's not ok to be gay…the page is covered in pink with women's wardrobe advertisments, yet you're still commenting on something you're so oblivious about!

  54. 54

    OMFG!!!!! Be like the wiser ppl of the uk put them all in fucking uniforms and be done with it.

  55. 55

    i was seriously thinking of doing the same thing….
    but i decided not to

  56. 56

    in the "real world" ppl refer to he would be able to wear his shirt. i dont think he would attempt to wear it in the work place because usually any t-shirt is unacceptable because its a t-shirt. i dont think its an attempt to flaunt his sexuality either. im not gay and i would wear an i love lady gaygay shirt. All these ridiculous attacks on Lady Gaga "i would suspend my student because he/she wore a Gaga shirt from her concert" really? As well as most of the people opposed to this have disgusting names like cookiepuss and horndog. this is silly. let gay people be gay and you can be straight.

  57. 57

    I'm gay and think the tee shirt is stupid. The school most likely has a dress code. White House is near Nashville and Nashvill school has a dress code. As far as the shirt making others feel "uncomfortable", I say fuck 'em.

  58. 58

    Re: buck

    Be quiet, buck.

  59. Jag86 says – reply to this


    Re: LillyJean – it's not like it's a private school. there is obvioulsy no dress code restrictions that does not allow this kid wear what he wants. and the school's argument doesn't support why he shouldn't wear the shirt and evidently lets kids wear religious paraphernalia.

  60. 60

    this sucks. im sorry kid. i cant believe they allow rebel flags but not this! stupidddd

  61. 61

    Re: HellscreamGold – Why the heck R u on his blog when U hate like that. Go spend ur time somewhere else u naive person. Die.

  62. 62

    What is going on with all this homophobia.. It's disgusting!!! They act like its something new and some kind of taboo its been going on since ancient civilizations.. It's just a shirt whats the big deal?

  63. 63

    I don't really get some of you people…
    When talking about other countries, you can be SO RACIST…but when it's something against gay people…you feel deeply insulted and ask for equality…
    I have nothing against anyone, just saying what I see…

  64. 64

    So if someone wears a shirt that has the word straight on it would they send that person home…… NO this is unfair and insane that its 2010 and we are still dealing with petty b.s.

  65. 65

    "Been in the studio for days and hours of record after record, and when I hear that a little monster was discriminated in school BY TEACHERS it reminds me of my commitment + love for u, and the deep unconditional devotion I feel to write music that will liberate you from prejudice Thank u for wearing your tee-shirt prou…d at school, you make me so proud, at the monsterball, you are an inspiration to us all. I love youX"

    Re: emmacatherine
    Not at a fucking school, idiot.

  67. 67

    This calls for a mass gay crying session while watching the 2009 season of Glee. I sense another predictable Hilton crusade on the way.

  68. 68

    Wow, that's seriously pathetic. That high school should be ashamed of themselves. We're in the freakin' 21st century people, it's 2010 - STOP WITH THE HOMOPHOBIA ALREADY. Morons that they are.

    Who cares what someone wears? What you wear shouldn't affect anything. Gah.

  69. 69

    This whole country is lacking in morals and values. Gay or not, why would anyone think this is appropriate for a child or an adult? No wonder charter schools are on the rise. Our youth are being told that it's okay to do whatever you want, whenever you want, wear whatever you want, and have no repsonsibility while you're doing it.

  70. 70

    We got sent home from high school for having holes in our jeans. Get over it.

  71. 71

    Seriously, Perez! Greenbrier Highschool is in GREENBRIER, Tennessee, not White House. I'm from White House. We have our own highschool, two in fact. Get your facts straight, buddy.

  72. 72

    Our principal used to make us turn our offensive shirts inside out and wear them like that for the rest of the day. Most of us didn't even bother wearing them again.

  73. 73

    By the time I graduated high school we weren't allowed to wear shirts to school that had any type of writing on them. Unless it was a shirt that had our school name/mascot on it. If you did wear a shirt with writing, and it was your first "offense", they would make you turn your shirt inside out. After that, they would send you home.

  74. 74

    I can forsee a lot of 'ol fashioned Redneck, Kuntry Ass-Whoopin' comin' this way for him…especially if he presses this issue! It's the south, they wouldn't hit a girl (even someone they consider a dyke, like Constance chick)…but this dude may end up tied to a tree…jus sayin'.
    It may be 2010, but not everywhere is accepting as Hollywood.

  75. 75

    Re: emmacatherine – Really~ kids get to wear shirts with religious symbols. Not Christ. maybe all the unamerican religions but no~ you can barely say the pledge of allegiance these days. Or merry christmas. Get outta here with that BS.

  76. 76

    wow he should not be in trouble

  77. 77

    Re: buck – are you stupid?! y its not ok to be gay? fuck you. really.

  78. 78

    I am a pretty liberal person and I support gays 100% but I have to agree with this one. High school hallways are not the place to advertise your sexuality.

  79. 79

    Get off your soap box asshole. He should be suspended for wearing that.

  80. 80

    Re: buck

    Funny how all your posts here are about gays. Got something you want to tell us? You do know that the biggest homophobes are…gay. Stop hiding behind Jebus and just come out already.

  81. 81

    That REALLY sucks. WOW.

  82. 82

    Re: LillyJean

    "School isn't the place to flaunt your sexuality." Tell that to all the heteros who hold hands, kiss, tell people who they're going out with, and all the teachers who are "Mrs" something or other, have pics of their husbands/wives for all to see, etc. Ya, one gay kid wears a shirt and the world comes to an end. STR8s talk non-stop about their sexuality and it's all fine with the world. HYP-O-CRITES!

  83. 83

    Re: SatanInHighHeels – I can't understand why, when you clearly resent an anti-gay stance and gay stereotypes, you persist in voicing your own anti-south and southern stereotypes. No, I don't mean that the way you're probably going to take it; I'm not insulting, I'm not sniping, I'm just failing to understand why you object to ignorance when you present it yourself. I'm all for doing unto others, but you can't fight ignorance with ignorance. Do you see what I'm saying?

  84. 84

    Re: gagas_ball_sack

    Only the stone dumb still associate AIDS with gays. Over 90% of the world's AIDS is among heterosexuals. So I guess AIDS is a STR8 disease and we should avoid YOU.

    Kudos to his mom Julie for accepting her son for who he is :)

  86. 86

    *SIGH* …The South …..’nuff said ….

  87. 87

    SO what??.. It's an inappropriate shirt for school and he should have gotten sent home.

  88. 88

    Re: rickswifey – My bad. I thought in the States you could. In Canada you usually can. Then again, you could probably wear this "gay gay" shirt and not get kicked out of school, or even a raised eyebrow.
    It's not like the kid dressed in drag and started dancing around.

  89. 89

    And P.S. although schools may say that they disapprove of PDA in general (heterosexual and homosexual), the heterosexuals won't even get as much as a slap on the wrist (usually) but the homosexuals will get BANNED. That's ridiculous.

  90. 90

    Re: LillyJeanRe: LillyJeanRe: LillyJeanRe: LillyJeanRe: LillyJeanRe: LillyJeanRe: LillyJean – Wow… talk about MORON. People like you make me want to strap a bomb to my face and give you a big hug.

  91. 91

    Do your research…White House, Tennessee people go to White House High School or White House Heritage High School…NOT Greenbrier High School. Having such easy-to-check inaccuracies makes one question the validity of the entire story.

  92. 92

    For everyone who says its was appropriate for the school to send him home - what about rebel flag shirts? What about shirts flaunting Christian beliefs when someone who has a Muslim shirt would likely be sent home… the double standard is rediculous everywhere, but here in the South… well unless your a good ol' boy your an outsider.

  93. 93

    Re: JasonDiggy – I'm sure you saw that I said that heterosexual couples shouldn't be making out in the halls either. So I'm not being hypocritical about that. But to say that straight people "talk non-stop" about our sexuality isn't exactly accurate or fair. You're not taking into consideration that cultural conditioning has, for centuries, been geared toward male-female relationships. Heterosexuality is society's NORM. There's no hypocrisy in having eachers who are "Mrs" something or other, have pics of their husbands/wives for all to see, etc. It's the way things have been for a very long time. Change can take a while.

  94. 94

    Remember kiddies, this is another story from the south. If it had a Christian saying on it all would be okay. Nothing again the bible belt. Just saying.

  95. 95

    I wore my 'I

  96. 96

    yeah i get it. and she should have been sent home. she would have been sent home if she worse a tshirt with jesus on the cross or a biblical saying or a white supremist picture or a million other things.


    It's not just because it says Gay

    I was born & raised in the south…I know what I speak! This guy will get hurt…I can only imagine he's already been assualted several times by rednecks. Gay+Teen Boy+South=TORTUROUS HIGH SCHOOL YEARS! Any gay man who grew up in this region knows EXACTLY what I'm talking about!

    Sorry my post got lost in translation.
    I have this top and love it; got no comments except off one teacher at the end of the day about it not being appropriate and he solely gave him a glare and that was that.

    It's getting worn again sometime soon to prove a point I think.

  100. 100

    Re: SatanInHighHeels – Though I've gone on record here countless times that I'm opposed to gay marriage (not for religious reasons, but because of the purpose of traditional marriage … I'd happily and completely support marriage for gays if it was called something else), I am also vehemently opposed to the bashing that gays endure, both physical and emotional. I can only assume that those who assault/pick on gays aren't so secure in their own sexuality, and their self-hatred drives them to target the people they most resemble inside. And that's sad. I know and love many gay men; I'd rather hang out with them than almost anyone else. When a heterosexual attacks a gay man, then the heterosexual needs an ass-kicking from the gay community.
