And the worst part of it all, it was at Community College...and I'm 21...and they called my mom. I have the "Into the Mouth of Hell We March" shirt and on the back it has the lyrics from the song "Dear God The ****ing Ship Is Sinking." Well, I'm pretty sure it was my super conservative math teacher who let the Dean of Student Services know about the shirt. Apparently it violates the "Student Code of Conduct" and if I refuse to abide by the rule I could face expulsion. Its not like its derogatory or anything, its song lyrics. My personal opinion is that it violates my first amendment right to freedom of speech.

So, Pit, I'm curious as to what you think.

what kind of pussy college do you go to
Quote by Marshmelllow
graphs. graphs always work. my old work place had an awesome printer, so i was constantly making graphs.

that was until i made a graph of how much my boss pissed me off. but seriously dude, graphs.

It's a community college. You don't HAVE to go there, so I'm pretty sure you have to follow their rules brochan.

On a side note, when I first saw that shirt at their show, I laughed incredibly hard. Then I found out those were the actual lyrics. Then it was even more hilarious.
#5
well, its not really violating ur 1st ammendment rights, because it is its own place and therefore since ur on their property, their rules apply to you. or else id have a shirt that said "**** SHAKESPERE".
#6
Haha. The my name was just something I made up. I'm actually a really big Metallica fan...not so much load, reload, or st. anger...which is all mostly ghey. Thanks for answering my question tho.
#7
You could not wear the shirt and continue to go there or wear the shirt and leave. It's their campus, follow their rules.

Seems simple enough.
#8
Do school-mandated uniforms violate the first amendment?

Hint: I already know the answer to this question and am using it as a point.

Its a PUBLIC college tho. Tax payer dollars fund this place. Therefore, I'm sure that this is absolute hogwash.
#10
Uh.. blog? I think you probably signed something saying you would agree with the code of conduct, and maybe you should abide by the rule.

Uniforms aren't necessarily exclusive to private schools.

Yes, I am paying to go there. Therefore I should be able to wear what I want, correct?

Nope. You are choosing to pay. You could just as easily give your money to a school who will allow you to wear that shirt. By paying them I think you're acknowledging their rules and are agreeing to follow them.
#20
I HIGHLY doubt that they cared about the band.

Yes, I could choose to go to another school, which I do. I go to Central Michigan University where **** like this isn't a ****ing issue. I disagree that by me paying there I "agree" to follow their rules.

there is a code of conduct and the only way i can see you getting in trouble is if the professor feels that the shirt itself is offensive to him and others, which it really isn't. stop giving the guy such a hard time. it's not like it's a ****ing catholic USC type school. i went to community college no one ever gave me ****.


anyways, lmao wtf? i wore my number of the beast shirt in high school a bunch of times and it said 666 on the back lol

hey TS, read the constitution


1st amendment applies to the federal government (state in some cases due to 14th Amendment) not private property

So why don't you go there instead?

That's because all that does is make you look like a silly goose.

I do go there. I'm only taking this one class as CC because its cheaper. This doesn't mean that they can tell me what I can't wear, specifically because this is a public college.

My uni doesn't seem to care about my Cannibal Corpse teeshirt with a torn-in-half-body performing cunnilingus on a mutilated woman...

Or the whole array of offensive band teeshirts I have. Your college sucks.
Matter is void. All is vanity. All is nothing. Nothing exists.

But damn does whisky rule

This is ridiculous, why would you get so worked up over not being allowed to wear a certain shirt?
Plus, you have to admit that the shirt is a bit insulting.


I'm pissed because I'm an adult being told what I can't wear. Thats crap and you know it. It doesn't matter if its insulting. I'm a Christian and I dont even find it insulting. Just because its insulting doesn't mean I shouldn't be allowed to wear it. Thats like making someone take down a painting of two people ****ing because its "insulting."
