Our good judy, 17-year-old Asante Cotman, decided to jazz up the everyday khaki and white-collared shirt with a leopard-print scarf, matching bag, and a sickening nude pump. The only openly gay student at Charles City High in Virginia said he’s known for sashaying away with a sickening purse all the time so he doesn’t know why the principal wants to halt his fashion show.
“[She was] talking to me in a manner, like, belittling me. ‘Oh, you shouldn’t come back here. Oh, we would be glad if you didn’t come back here. Everybody would be happy.’ That comment really got to me. I was almost done. I feel like I was about to kill myself. I was almost done.”
In a meeting with his parents, the school board asked Cotman and his mom to stop the news story from airing but he’s not having it.
