Those are the words on a Chesnee High School student’s shirt that she said got her suspended from school.
“You need to change your shirt or go home,” said Briana Popour.
That was the option Popour said she was given last week when the openly gay high school senior wore the boldly printed t-shirt to class.
“I’ve worn this shirt before and nobody’s ever said anything,” said Popour.
Until now, that is. Popour said she was pulled out of class into the front office and told her shirt was disruptive. She said that’s news to her and there’s nothing against displaying sexual orientation in the dress code handbook.
“When I said something to him about the handbook, he said ‘well, not everything is in the handbook,’” claims Popour.
“He” is a high ranking administrator with Chesnee High. This week, we reached out to him, the school and the school district superintendent hoping to get some questions answered.
