What's Your Take?
High school students in Silverdale, Washington have been barred from wearing breast cancer awareness bracelets because teachers view them as a "distraction".
The colourful rubber bracelets sport sayings like "I love boobies! Keep a breast!" and are part of a fundraising effort by Keep-A-Breast that aims to teach young people about early cancer detection and prevention.
While there is no word on penalties for offenders, it does lead us to ask whether the school is making a big deal out of nothing or whether the bands are too risque for a classroom.
So I leave the floor to you- would it offend you to have your teen sport one of these bracelets or is the message more important than one word? Who is the boob here?
