Pick Your Battles

British girl loses lawsuit against school whose uniform policy forbids her “chastity ring” while permitting headscarves and Sikh bangles.

The court’s finding is entirely appropriate. A chastity ring is not mandated in the “rules,” such as they are, of Christianity and therefore is not a good hill to die on in opposing your school’s dress code.

Guess you better get a more oppressive religion if you want it to be accommodated. Or pick a symbol more integral to the religion if you want to win the case.

  1. How would anyone know? I’m wearing my chastity ring right now… oh, wait… I think we’re talking about two different things. The ball gag and mask were making the screen difficult to read.

    Back to the box with me!
