    This is FAR from the first time these bracelets have been a issue in schools. Kids that are 14-18 years old did not buy these to support awareness. They got them as a fashion statement. If the school doesn't want them, then they can't wear them. Once they grow up and are not in school, they can wear whatever they want.

    And you know this how? And what if their parents give them permission? These are bracelets...not exactly neon signs with the word Boobies in flashing lights.

    These people seriously need to lighten up.

    Boob is the perfect word for them. The B looks like the top view, the oo looks like the front view and the b looks like the side view.:cool:

    Back on topic though, anything to raise breast cancer awareness is good in my book.

    While I can appreciate a good awareness campaign, I tend to side with the school on this one - the bracelets were obviously a distraction - especially to that age group. And it makes sense for the school to minimize such distractions.

    I kind of agree with the distraction angle, hell I'll even go further to say it kind of ads a sexual element to it; but it doesn't stop the silliness. Yeah I can see not allowing the shirts and bracelets in class, but what are they going to do when a kid types 5318008 in his calculator and turns it upside down? I would have hoped it would spark more of a discussion about the issue, but it seems that's too much to ask of the school board, and maybe of the children.

    I can completely understand the schools decision to ban the bracelets, as previously mentioned, it's just about making a statement rather than promoting the cause. Just a distraction and entirely unnecessary.

    Whatever. The school system in my town would never even considering banning these. I'm glad i come from a liberal area. My 10 year old female cousins has one of these bracelets and her mother is fully aware. We don't care. This school system needs to have the giant stick surgically removed from their anus. Disgusting.

    Vincenz.. you read my mind.

    I am kind of to fold on this one. I can see a school saying this if they wear uniforms and are not allowed to have any other type of clothing or accessories outside the uniform. However if this is a school that doesn't have this type of dress code then I am all for letting the kids wear them.

    Nothing in that article explains what exactly the distraction was. It seems the distraction was just the writing on the bracelets. This seems like much ado about nothing.

    I'm sure there are much greater problems in these schools than bracelets.

    Imagine if girls started wearing "I love balls" to show their awareness of testicular cancer.

    Would you rather they like boobies? Honestly, who cares? It's not a big deal.
