hooray for teenage equalists!


"Two students at Central Kings Rural High School fought back against bullying recently, unleashing a sea of pink after a new student was harassed and threatened when he showed up wearing a pink shirt."

They bought 75 pink tank tops and brought in pink fabric for headbands/armbands, and HALF of the school wore pink!

"David said one of the bullies angrily asked him whether he knew pink on a male was a symbol of homosexuality. He told the bully that didn’t matter to him and shouldn’t to anyone." http://thechronicleherald.ca/Front/858884.html

Travis says "we’re just two kids who stood up for a cause." http://thechronicleherald.ca/Front/859436.html

David & Travis, you are amazing! Thank you for making a difference ♥ and thank you to happy_gay_life for the beautiful story.

About time that someone took a stand against bullying, no matter what it cost them, personally. I would never relive my teenage years for anything - the growing into my adult shell, the pimples, the insecurity, the raging hormones (not in a sexual way), etc... then combine that with the fact that so many people are willing to gang up on others to make themselves feel superior. Granted, most of those people today have not... succeeded at life (for example, I found out that a guy that threw rocks at me with the rest of the preps when we were in the 8th or 9th grade is now a homeless, drooling shell of what he was from doing too much acid as a late teen), so the shallow part of me wants to squee (very small part of me) as the rest feels bad at their lot in life (not wishing stuff like that on anyone...)

eeek, yeah... I was never bullied, never really saw it happening (or I would have stepped in, for sure!), but there was a lot of ostracizing and pressuring-to-conform where I went. It's so good to see kids turning the tide!

An example of the power of the subtle influence, when a drop of ink can affect the whole sea.

When people join together they can change the world, and, If they can´t, at least they can show on which side they are.

We must learn to live with each other even if we do not agree with them on their thoughts, life-style, religion, etc. It´s sad to know we need somebody to remind us this frecuently.

Nice history!
