If It’s Plaid, He Must be Lesbian…

A 14-year-old boy in Utah was forced to change his clothes and told he could not wear a kilt to school because somebody might think he was dressing as a girl.

According to the Associated Press, the principal of his middle school has been asked to apologize to the boy.

A Weber School District spokesman says Craig Jessop has been asked to extend an apology to 14-year-old student Gavin McFarland of Hooper after the school official’s comments.

McFarland says he wore the kilt twice in the past two weeks to Rocky Mountain Junior High as a prop for an art project.

Taggart says the district recognizes the kilt as an expression of the boy’s Scottish heritage and that the kilt was not inappropriate. Kilts are traditional Scottish apparel generally worn by men for formal or special occasions.

Craig Jessop had told the boy that the outfit could be misconstrued as cross-dressing.

Since kilts are generally woolen and plaid, it’s obvious this homophobe thought the kid was dressing not just as a female, but as a lesbian.

  1. Wait, so it’s okay because “Kilts are traditional Scottish apparel generally worn by men” – not because the kid has the right to wear whatever he wants? When was cross-dressing declared illegal?
