Hunter High School students show off their breast cancer awareness bracelets outside the school in West Valley City, Friday. As part of a national breast cancer awareness campaign aimed at youth, rubber wrist bands emblazoned with that message have become trendy teen wear. Sales of the brightly colored bracelets raise money for the Keep A Breast Foundation, a California-based nonprofit that funds research and education programs. The group sees the accessories as conversation starters, using language that dispels some of the scariness associated with cancer. (AP Photo/The Salt Lake Tribune, Djamila Grossman)
A brouhaha is brewing over “I Heart Boobies” bracelets at Riverside High
School after the principal suspended 9 students who wore them to school
and refused to take them off. The bracelets are sold by a
non-profit and are designed to raise awareness and money to fight breast
cancer. Unfortunately at Riverside High School they raised a little too
much awareness for school administrators.”I think its ridiculous
that they would suspend us for wearing something for a good cause that
says boobies,” Riverside student Dakota Jewell said/McKay Allen, KXLY. More here.
Question: Is the slogan, “I Love Boobies,” too edgy for the Keep a Breast Foundation campaign, particularly for high school supporters?
