A Queens high school sent a student home Tuesday, saying her “I enjoy vagina” T-shirt was a distraction — but the bisexual teen says administrators are trouncing her free speech.
And her mother is on her side.
Brianna Demato, 15, of Woodhaven, wore the explicit “Enjoy Coke”-style T-shirt to Newtown High School Tuesday — and said she was sent home when she refused to change.
“It’s hypocritical,” said Brianna, who insisted she’s worn the flirty shirt to school dozens of times without incident. “They use the word in class — why can’t I, on a shirt?”
The idealistic teen’s conflict with administrators started at lunch when a dean spotted the message written on her cherry-red shirt.
Brianna said she was hauled into an assistant principal’s office, where she was given a choice: Change the shirt or go home.
The irate mom vowed not to back down.
“(Wednesday) she’s wearing a shirt that says ‘I’m the B—h From Down the Block,’ ” Demato said. “The message is, she can wear whatever she wants.”
“You can’t stop somebody from being who they are,” she said. “My daughter is whoever she wants to be.”
