The article itself is anti-gay

Your article "Should Courts Ban Demeaning Speech in Schools? The Ninth Circuit’s Controversial Anti-Gay T-Shirt Case" suggested that the Supreme Court should allow the wearing of T-shirts with anti-gay remarks. I find it this very unacceptable. This is not the same case as Tinker vs. Des Moines. This is about the wrong kind of fundamentalism which should be eliminated because it hurts people.

As Americans, I think we're taking our rights in the wrong direction. Why can't gay people get protection and equal rights while these things that bash gay people are often protected by the same law deprived from gay people? This student's first amendment rights uses it to hurt other people. Is that even logical? Rights are meant to protect people, not protect a few people and have those same people use it for their advantage over other people.

I think the article was very one-sided and biased towards an anti-gay worldview.
