“It just felt like I was being discriminated against.”
Ali Chaney, a 13-year-old junior high school student in Copperas Cove, Texas, bought a simple T-shirt with the $10 she earned last weekend for babysitting, she told BuzzFeed News.

Ali, who is gay, was excited to wear her new shirt, which read in rainbow letters « Some people are gay get over it, » to school on Monday.
Ali didn't expect the shirt to cause any type of negative response from students.
Friends and other schoolmates complimented her on the shirt as they gathered in the cafeteria before class, she said.
But about five minutes after her science class began that morning, Ali was called into the administrative office at her school, SC Lee Junior High.
