THE DOWN UNDER PULL OVER
A Kat Production


Your sister married an Australian and so she and her husband and your nephew, fourteen year-old Joey, live in Darwin, NT, Australia.

You also have a fourteen year-old son, Cooper. Your family lives in the United States.

Cooper and Joey are actually rather close despite being almost ten thousand miles away from each other.  You and your spouse and Cooper visit your Australian relatives every other year and they visit your family the other years.  There is also Skype (after the boys figured out the time and date differences.) So Cooper and Joey do maintain contact.

Cooper is in his first year of high school.  His school has a rather liberal dress code that allows most anything except for overly revealing clothing or clothing advertising alcohol, tobacco, drugs or pornography. Then there is a sort of "catch all" phrase in the dress code that also prohibits "any clothing deemed offensive and disruptive to the learning process."

The NT is currently running an advertising campaign promoting tourism.  Part of the campaign is a t-shirt.  Joey tells Cooper via Skype that he is sending him one of the t-shirts.  (Cooper has seen the t-shirt over Skype but neither you nor your spouse have.)

The shirt arrives and you and your spouse quickly veto it being worn anywhere except to bed. Cooper protests but you tell him in no uncertain terms that you do not want to see the shirt on him unless he is in his own room.

You and your spouse both leave early and so Cooper is responsible for getting himself off to school. Despite your prohibition and without your knowledge, Cooper wears his Australian t-shirt.

You soon get a call from the VP of Cooper's school.  He tells you he has Cooper in his office and that Cooper has worn an offensive shirt to school and refuses to turn the shirt inside out or wear a loaner.  You immediately know what shirt the VP is referencing.  You talk to your son but he still refuses to turn his shirt over or wear a loaner. Cooper tells you that there is nothing offensive about his shirt. "It is just an ad, and, anyway, the government down there made it." You are told Cooper is being sent home for the day and you are asked to come collect your son.

You arrive at the school and Cooper still maintains that his shirt is not offensive.


THIS IS THE SHIRT IN QUESTION

What are you going to do?

Well, I can't very well spank the NT Board of Tourism, so Cooper will have to serve as a surrogate.

Seriously, he was expressly forbidden from wearing the shirt to school. He did anyway. He was given a chance to turn it inside out or accept a "loaner" for the day. He refused. While I'm not personally offended by the shirt, I can see how some people would be, and am surprised that any government agency, at least any one where English is their native tongue, would have come up with the logo. Nonetheless, this is deliberate, disrespectful disobedience. There are some things worth fighting for--this isn't one of them.

I'm taking Cooper home. He's getting a spanking, and I'm confiscating the shirt for a week. When he gets it back, I'm telling him AGAIN it's not to be worn outside his room, and adding that if it is, it will be confiscated and rendered permanently unwearable. Not that much different from the French Connection UK shirts of a few years ago--and same answer for those.

I'm not surprised in the least that an Australian Government tourist board would produce something like this. It's a lot more polite than its politicians are to each other - crude language seems the norm!

However, that said, I've told him he can't wear it outside the house; the school have taken a similar position and I'm backing the school's view. If that means a paddling - fine and if I don't think it severe enough I may well add something to it when home for him having inconvenienced me by being called into school. If the school doesn't paddle him, he'll certainly be feeling my belt when he gets home. Oh, and I'll be burning the shirt.

I have to agree that it is impossible to spank the NT Tourism Office however it would be the wrong thing to do even if one could.  I'm sure Cooper argued that this was an official government shirt and there, obvious to one and all, that it was not possibly offensive.

Unfortunately, we did NOT do our homework.  Checking the ntofficial.com/pages/about one learns <<NTofficial.com is NOT affiliated with, endorsed, associated with or sponsored by any government or official NT tourism organisations or their associated brands, companies or subsidiaries. We're just some lovers of the top end, spreading love for our favourite territory!>>.  It should have been obvious since a government agency would have had an *.au URL.

Cooper is not going to be sitting comfortably for a while.

Excellent piece of research YLC, almost up to Darwin standards!

There is no doubt that Cooper is going to cop it. I don't though see the logic of going as far as Pi suggests and burning the garment; as long as he only wears it in his bedroom that's fine with me.

Both boys must have known that this shirt is aggressively offensive... it is making use of possibly the most vulgar word in the English language and it's inconceivable to Stevie that they did not fully realise this.

The boy was told not to wear the shirt, and he did it anyway... Stevie does NOT wish him to continue wearing it so he shall confiscate it and destroy it. Stevie will say bluntly that he will NOT tolerate this kind of behaviour whilst the boy is living under his roof...

Cooper will be suitably punished as well, probably by a thorough grounding... and Stevie shall have words with his sister over this...

I agree with Stevie's assessment except I will not ground the boy. Since I can legally spank Cooper, I will wear him out as soon as we get home and, since he has been sent home from school, he can spend the rest of the day doing some very nasty chores.
