9 Suspended In ‘I Love Boobies’ Brouhaha

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?
