Here is an insipirng story for stsnding up for yourself. From The Kansas City Star:
As president of her high school club, the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at Blue Springs South, Bailee liked the idea of having T-shirts made like other student groups.
She found a slogan with a deeper message on the Internet: “Why is it that as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?”
She emailed her order for a dozen shirts from Rod’s Sporting Goods in Blue Springs. A clerk told her they would be ready in a week.
Except everything changed the next morning.
