As reported by MSN:
“If God had wanted you to wear earrings, he’d have made you a girl.”
—Governor Don Siegelman of Alabama
I love the school’s suggested compromise: that the kid could be allowed to wear earrings for a few minutes a day, while eating lunch—so long as he’s kept out of sight in the principal’s office. Gotta make sure he doesn’t turn any of the other kids queer, after all.
