What idiot marked my post as spam??? If you don't know what these things mean, and don't know what spam is, you really shouldn't be operating a computer. Go on back to your corner and make something else out of your PlayDough. How about a nice whale? That should be easy enough for you. But please stay out of the adult conversations.

The one thing everyone understands is money. When this school system gets tired of paying out settlements from law-suits, they will change their tune.

Those who marked this post negatively are probably the same type of children who are bullies in school themselves.

These types only operate when they can do it in situations where they think they can get away with it. When bullies get caught they are often the first ones to try to claim they are being victimized.

They are wimps when they have to stand alone.

It scampers through sites here and there, giggling like a demented school girl, then runs and hides for a couple of months until it feels like coming out again. Harmless and stupid, not worth the trouble.

Why would you assume or post that a homophobic hater would not know what spam is? What an odd way of thinking.

Obviously the sexually disordered cretins wish to attach any and all negative icons to any pro glbt or sensible post that they can.

The proper response is not a naive, "Don't you what spam is?" It's, "fck you mentally ill, talibangelical, bigoted scum and the jeeebus you rode in on."

God bless this child for standing up for equality and to stop the madness of bullying. Ben Cohen, a retired Rugby player in the UK has started a foundation Called the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation. We need more folks like Ben - a model athlete who has enough sense to know that we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Are local churches doing anything? Does it take an athlete to get the word out? Regardless - thank you Ben Cohen!

"I am passionate about standing up against homophobia and feel compelled to take action. It is time we stand up for what is right and support young people who are being harmed. As athletes, it is not enough just to have strong bodies. We must have strong characters and use our voices to support those who need and deserve it.

Every person on this planet has a right to be true to themselves, to love and be loved, and to be happy. I encourage others to stand up with me and make a difference. Stand up for equality, stand up against bullying."
