14-Year-Old Boy Punished For Wearing Makeup To School
A female same-sex couple in Florida say the administrators of their 14-year-old son’s school need to learn more “tolerance” after the teenager was punished for wearing lipstick and eye shadow to school with the principal insisting that it was in violation of the dress code.

The parents of a Tampa Bay student have started an online petition asking for improved tolerance training after their son was castigated for wearing makeup on the last day of school.
The Tampa Bay Times reports Chris Martin decided to wear black eyeliner, eye shadow and lipstick on the last day of eighth grade at Meadowlawn Middle School in St. Petersburg.
Administrators told the 14-year-old boy he was violating the dress code.
The two women who raised the teen say they understand why his shirt’s image — an anarchy symbol and sheath — violated the code but the makeup was no different than what girls wear every day.
The district backed the principal’s decision.
The parents started a petition on moveon.org to improve tolerance training for teachers and administrators.
