Boy Suspended From School For A YEAR For Wearing Dress And Heels!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad Sad

Unreal!

Check out this news story about a 15-year old Oregon boy who was suspended for A YEAR from his school after wearing a dress and high heels to class (above)!

Apparently, Sam Saurs was tired of hearing his mother complain about her high heels were uncomfortable, so he made a bet with her that he could wear them no problem, and decided to take it one step further by wearing a dress and make-up to school. When he was called into his principal's office and told that he was a distraction, Sam rightfully said that the comments were sexist, and he was immediately suspended!

Unbelievable!

Obviously, we think he probably should have handled the situation with a little more tact and not insulted his elder, but still! If he wasn't violating the school's dress code, then he shouldn't be punished!

Think about the message that this sends out to confused teens who may be struggling with their gender identity throughout the country!

So disappointing!

We sincerely hope that the administrators of the school system seriously consider the ramifications of what they've done, and take steps to correct the issue!

    This is not a LBGT issue, this is a public school issue about controlling kids. He was messing with him mom, and obviously was messing with the principal. It is stupid, and a year is unnecessary, but it is not something to hang a rainbow flag on. Most teachers and principals have a hair trigger on discipline because of fear they will be overtaken by the crazy mob of hormonal children. I am sure this kid probably is a wise cracking confident, defiant teen based on his response - which I love, but school administrators believe kids like him are the enemy. Remember Easy A, Lemonade Mouth, Ferris Bueller, Breakfast Club… the principals are depicted in the same way, it is a stereotype that many principals live up to (remember the prom dude? same control issue)

    I'm sorry but the kids in a school, not a mall or a friends home. Rules (including ones about attire) are there to prevent distractions for the people who may actually want to learn something. This kid can wear a dress, heels, hell even a tutu after school on his own time if he when he's in school it's not a free for all where anyone can do whatever they want.

    it was stupid of him to take the issue to school. the issue schools have with kids doing stuff like this is that it serves as a distraction, whether it be wearing heels, dying their hair bright pink, having facial piercings, etc. do i agree, no? but its the rules. and technically, at a year, its expulsion. not suspension and for what he did it it ridiculous, i would have just sent him home for the day. clearly it is some sort of lgbt issue the school has to take the punishment so far. i wonder what the punishment is for fighting or something that actually causes harm. i bet a lot less.

    i think you missed the part where they said they suspended him for the remainder of the year, which is probably a few unimportant days, and won't cause him to fail. and the part where they said its been overturned.



  5. 5

    It's for his own good, thats how things get started, the parents wake up one day and dont have a son anymore, they got a fruit……….



  6. 6

    UNUSUAL CHILD!
    my son at that age would NEVER had chosen to make his point in this manner if he were in a debate over the comfort/lack of comfort of high heels with a parent, sibling, peer…anyone
    ….again…..very unusual boy….
    maybe the whole family is "unusual" ?????



  7. 7

    forgot to mention-a year suspension is too long
    IF it was indeed to be a year
    .
    more likely the suspension was until the end of THIS school year–whch is like in 2 minutes anyways

    This is crazy! I think a three day suspension for disrespect would have been more than enough punishment. It sounds like the kid wore the dress as more of a costume to amuse himself and his mother than a gay thing. Perez, you shouldn't twist everything to be gay, it's kinda dumb….a know?



  9. 9

    Wow! I totally relate! I got suspended too when I decided to see what it would be like to be a plant for one day. I wore a large plant pot around my waist and painted myself green from the waist up. The principal didn't appreciate it especially when I said I needed watering. He told me to go back to the patio where I belong! Teahcers are so mean and inconsiderate!



  10. 10

    Oregon? No. It was in Port Orchard, Wa. At least get your locations right.



  11. 11

    …and where did you get he has been suspended for a year?



  12. 12

    I SAY ROCK IT DUDE!! screw that school and them suspending him. i mean seriously i have to wear freaking uniforms to school and would totally love if one of my friends did that. its what he wanted to do so let him do it, why stop something theres no point in stopping. hell, i have muliticolored hair and piercings and gauges (not big ones) and no one says thats a distraction. so why a boy in dress and heals? gahh screw people who judge and try to ruin the fun of life. your only young once and only get highschool for 4 years, make something of it!!! YOU GO SAM!!!!!!!



  13. 13

    This is not a lesbian gay issue! This is a boy who went against a dress code that he signed his name to saying he would follow. You cannot be suspended for a year, so this story is not accurate. You can only be suspended for 11 days maximum, he was maybe expelled for a year given the right to come back to school after this 1 year. He will fight it, we will turn it into a lesbian gay issue and he will get 200,000 for breaking the rules. What a country we live in. Just more of a reason to say uniforms for all!

    Re: gypsysmama – I did a bit of googling, the punishment was already overturned. Having a child that is really struggling with their own identity, or sexuality is an important issue, one that should not be clouded by people out for a fight and to make a statement and thumb their nose at authority. Genuine and sincere advocacy is a beautiful thing… but somehow I don't think this kids identify is a genuine desire to wear high heels and cross dress every day.



  15. 15

    Oh, and he wasn't suspended for a YEAR as you hysterically posted. He was suspended for the remainder of the school year, which is likely just a few more days. Even one day of suspension for this is wrong, but again…get your damn facts straight before making posts. Sheeeesh, your ignorance and stupidity astound me. I honestly didn't know that a (supposedly) college educated man could be such a moron.



  16. 16

    He should have been suspended for stupidity.



  17. 17

    He wasn't wearing the outfit for a legit reason. He was wearing it in response to a bet. If this kid was transgendered I could see this being a problem. To me he's making a mockery of larger issues and the school system has every right to suspend him. Perez, you really need to look at the big picture and how situations like this effect the issues we really care about.



  18. 18

    There are a few days left of school- so the REMAINDER of the year- you know those days you clean out your locker and collect old papers. Useless- he was probably thrilled to get out early.



  19. 19

    A couple of things - Port Orchard is in Washington State, not Oregon. And he wasn't suspended for a year, he was initially suspended for the rest of the school year- school gets out this week, so it was only for a few days.

    That being said, he looked cute in that dress, and the school is stupid. Nothing new here.



  20. 20

    If a 15 year old girl came to my school wearing huge ass heals like that and a dress like that, she would have been suspended too. Good call on the school. This kid needs just stop begging for attention.



  21. 21

    I really don't think this is a gay issue Perez. You are reaching with this one. Not disappointing at all… he wanted attention and now he got it.

    Re: gypsysmama – Sorry Gypsysmama I meant to start my reply with I agree.

    This is issue has huge implications for the LBGT community. The raw facts are: a boy wore a dress to school and was suspended for an inordinate amount of time. The child's motives for wearing a dress are irrelevant. Today the boy in the dress is merely making a glib statement to get back at his mother, but what about the boy tomorrow who wears a dress to express his conflicted gender identity? Imagine if when questioned by school administrators, the boy had not responded “I have a bet with my mom. I plan on wearing pants again tomorrow,” but rather, "I am struggling with some gender identity issues. Regardless of my biological sex, I feel most at ease in women's clothing. I plan to dress this way from now on." Which statement do you think would be more threatening for school officials? Most likely the latter, so if this is how the boy who attempted to disrupt the status quo for one day was penalized, imagine how the boy attempting to disrupt it indefinitely would be treated.

The school is setting an extremely negative precedence for more complex issues to come.

    why is this even news? well done evryone, keep telling your kids that discipline, uniform and standards dont matter. Just dont blame the government when you knee deep in the shite your positive discrimination helped build. dick heads!



  26. 26

    Doesn't this sound like a harmless prank and should have been handled as such? Why is everyone in authority so scared anymore?



  27. 27

    no father in the house right? what a surprise…the beginiing of the end in a boys life…

    SCHOOL IS FOR LEARNING ….not playing dress up.

    This is why we have such poor school ratings because kids are no longer interested in learning and school is nothing more than a social scene….better hope the Japanese don't take over…their kids are smarter than us for a reason.

    I don't see anywhere in this article that says he was suspended for a year- lets be honest it was an unnecessary cry for an attention and he should have been sent home for the day [suspended for the day] but i feel like the headline is bogus. No way in hell a child got suspended for a year over wearing a dress. Kids get suspended for cutting class and doing far worse things and get maybe a week suspension max. Hell we got caught fordging "sick" notes in high school from our parents and got 3 days suspension and thats worse then wearing a dress. I find Perez' reporting shoddy and I am sure it is missing major details.. like the actual suspension term.



  31. 31

    Can't you get anything right Mario? It was in Washington and he was suspended for the remander of the school year, which was less than a week.



  32. 32

    Perez….you're right up there with Hearst and Yellow Journalism. I looked up the story in the news. The kids was suspended for 3 days. BFD. You intentionally stir up sh*t to promote your platform. God forbid any Republican would do the same thing. This has nothing to do with the Gay agenda. Shame on you for muck-tacking.



  33. 33

    Re: Mo888888 – Have you ever been to Oregon? Blueeeeeee, Blueeeeeeee. The kid was suspended for 3 days. You don't get hair trigger out of blueeeeeeee Oregon. What you have is a stupid a## mother. The appropriate liberal response would be to take the child away from the parent and place him in foster care. Because the government knows better than any parent, how children should be raised. I sure hope that the government separates them because the child needs to be indoctrinated in the "agenda.



  34. 34

    This isnt a gay and lesbian issue, its a kid making a bet with his mom and playing it out in a school. A boy in drag at school would be a distraction. When he was reprimanded, he shouldnt have tried to make it an issue about sexism - he should have gone home. The principal was absolutely right to suspend him for sassing back with some BS excuse and not doing as he was told.



  35. 35

    Tell this little snot that he is going to school to LEARN not cause a disraction or "prove" things. If he want to do a social experiement with his mother after school on their own time go for it but citizens are not paying tax dollars for some kid to make a scene and disrupt classes. And he was not suspended for a year - but for the remainder of the year - which is about a week or something. He probably shot off his 13 year old mouth and they made him accountable. Team School.



  36. 36

    LOL!!! hahaha I wonder how angry is his mom right now
