What About Free Speech....Why would there be a warning about this post being closed if people continue to exercise their FREE SPEECH in terms of questioning the OP? I didn't see a single offensive comment, just some pretty polite questions of validity. I know the answer in principle but I am just asking because the irony is hard to ignore...the whole question here was one of free speech, the people who are defending the OP have done so on the principles of free speech, so perhaps Piglet unintentionally made the point that many others have tried to make-- in every forum in life there ARE limits of what's acceptable and when you don't know what they are, sometimes someone has the thankless task of letting you know. Shann wasn't asked to leave for breastfeeding or a Budweiser T shirt. Let's not make equations that DID NOT HAPPEN.
Piglet, going by Shann's logic from her original post, I guess this makes you a rent-a-cop too because you are tasked with maintaining Mothering's standards of acceptable discourse or shutting us down... (that rent-a-cop comment probably bothered me as much as the shirt in the OP) :
If it's ok to close this thread because of offensive posts (a policy I agree with) then what is the problem with what the zoo did?
