No, he was not discriminated against

No, he was not discriminated against.  If he was the only one not allowed, then yes.  But that's not the case.

Maine tradition?  There are other ways to portray his passion for hunting without violating the school's code of conduct.  He's just not willing to. Too bad for him.  He better learn, sooner rather than later, that there are rules of life that he'll be required to follow as an adult after high school that he may not like.

Portrait of Bonny Eagle senior with his gun won’t be in high school yearbook

Bonny Eagle High School has refused to publish a senior yearbook photo because it shows the student holding a shotgun.

“So here’s what I wanted to have as my senior picture but was informed, ‘No you can’t put something like that in the yearbook,’ ” Wade Gelinas wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday that featured the rejected portrait.

Gelinas could not be reached for comment, but he told WCSH-TV that hunting is a tradition in his family and he simply wanted his senior portrait to show him holding his gun.

Gelinas said he would submit an alternate photo, without his gun, to the yearbook.

But he also posted the original photo on social media, where it was shared more than 200 times as of Thursday afternoon.

The photo shows him standing near trees and holding the gun at his hip, its barrel pointed down and away from the camera.

Until the school's code of conduct changes, it's absolutely acceptable.

That this young man was discriminated against - and hunting is a Maine tradition.
