The school is punishing boys and non-binary students - but not girls - for having long hair, saying their haircut policy «reflects the values of our community at large».

Boy - long hair

Male and non-binary students are suing their Texas high school after they were suspended for having hair that’s too long, even though girls are allowed to have long hair at the school.

The lawsuit says that the students – including a Latino 11-year-old boy who wears a ponytail to represent his culture – are being denied educational opportunities because of their gender, in violation of federal law, reports.

This is happening in the land of the free, apparently you are not that free so boys or non-binary can have long hair!
