High School Student Suspended for Dressing as Vagina for Halloween
Christain Silbereis says his vagina costume is anatomically correct, and his mother thought it was suitable for his high school Halloween party.
The 17-year-old high school student from Ann Arbor, Mich., won first place at an after-school costume party at Community High School. He came dressed as a vagina.
With all due respect to witches, ghosts and goblins, school administrators found Silbereis' vagina costume just a little too scary, even for Halloween. School officials suspended him Wednesday for the rest of the week.
Nevertheless, students of the body might take exception to certain embellishments — including a pink cape and T-shirt bearing the image of a fetus.
"It's just another body part," he said. "They teach us about it in school."
Mom couldn't be be more proud. "There's nothing inappropriate about what's given all of us life," said Rosalyn Tulip, who works as a midwife. She says her son respects women and their bodies.
In fact, Tulip made the costume for herself and wore it to a party last year. She told her son he might make some people at school uncomfortable, but she supported his decision to wear it.
