    I didn't realize this was still going on ... though I don't know if the 'irreparable harm' complaint is going to fly.

    A Texas school district bans boys from wearing long hair. Now, some students are suing.

    Wow ... I thought this ended in the 80s when half the boys at my school wanted to look like the dudes from Poison.

    Wait, I thought Texas hated mandates of all types? I’m sure their governor and the freedom loving Republicans will be all over this. :emoji_upside_down::emoji_upside_down::emoji_upside_down:

    I doubt this is about hippies as much as it is about guys who want to look feminine/gender non conforming.

    I'm sorry. I thought this thread was about what length hair that Biden prefers to sniff.

    Count me as a conservative who once had lengthy hair and thinks this is stupid.

    Agree. I seriously doubt that they would have enforced the standard if the offending student was the starting quarterback at a high school with a competitive football team rather than a 9-year old elementary school student.

    Long hair is bad enough, but doing Tai Chi in public....now that's over the line.


    I wonder if TX would kick Trevor Lawrence out of school?

    Seriously I live in TX and I've never heard of such a thing.

    If it was a private school I would not have been able to care less. But an entire public school district. Good grief. There has to be better things to worry about. SMH

    I know. I remember a story a few months ago about a school editing out cleavage in year book photos, this district really needs to step up their game.
