Creative teen protesters: The kids are all right!

They warm the cockles of me heart, they do!

Group 1: Kids wear pink shirts in solidarity against bullies–leading to an official, annual, pink-shirt-wearing anti-bullying day! Ye gods.

Group 2: Kids walk out of forced Pledge of Allegiance, create own awesome Pledge.

Group 3: Girls AND boys protest invasive security guard harassment by wearing maxipads and tampons as protest jewelry.

I mean…ya’ll! NONE of this would have happened in my high school. I am so inspired by these kids, and especially by the fact that they are fighting across gender lines, and fighting stereotypes. Maybe my son will be like these kids.
