A middle school in Colorado has asked parents to not allow their students to wear a certain type of "jelly" bracelet. School administrators learned that certain colors may indicate varying degrees of sexual activity either experienced by or willing to be engaged in by students. However, many female students maintain that the bracelets are merely a fashion statement and have no such connotations (Dan Frosch, "Schools Ban Bracelet Used in Sex Game," The New York Times, Sept. 12, 2009).

Regardless of students' intent, we should keep in mind the biblical principles of maintaining a good reputation and staying above reproach. We should avoid any semblance of condoning or participating in evil, even if that means abstaining from a certain type of apparel.
