Can you imagine Antonin Scalia saying “boobies” over and over and over? If one Pennsylvania school gets its way, you won’t have to imagine it. The Easton Area School District board voted 7-1 last night to take its ban on breast cancer charity bracelets that say “I heart boobies"I to the Supreme Court, the AP reports. In August, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the school could not ban these bracelets categorically, because they are “not plainly lewd and because they comment on a social issue.” The school rule was challenged in 2010 by teenagers Brianna Hawk and Kayla Martinez (with help from the ACLU), who testified that they merely hoped to raise breast cancer awareness at their school — and, presumably, write the best college essay ever.
