Judge: ‘I ♥ Boobies’ Not Vulgar

A federal judge has ruled in favor of two students who wore breast-cancer awareness bracelets to their middle school, even after they knew the be-sloganed accessories had been banned by administrators. The bracelets said "I [heart] boobies" and "Check yourself" alongside the website address of the non-profit organization Keep A Breast. Judge Mary McLauglin's 40-page decision says that even though school districts have the right to ban lewd speech, the word "boobies" is not vulgar/Liz Goodwin, The Outlook. More here.

Question: Do you think the word "boobies" is vulgar?
