    Wow, I have tons of mixed feelings about this: everything from pride in the years of work that's been done to get society to a point where a brave kid like this would feel free enough to express himself to fear for him as not all of society is with the program. But then, isn't that the fight he's rightfully continuing?

    The internet, particularly the video aspect, certainly has brought these efforts up a notch. How could anyone deny that kid his dignity?

    I signed, and sent the petition on to most everyone I know - some have signed already.

    Thanks for posting. It's this sort of thing that bit by bit shows more and more people what is involved in our fight for equality - one more step toward our goal.
