    I always admire people who stand up, get counted, and push for positive change.

    That's why not accepting pictureless / profileless / not out / discreet is acting as such an enabler, and why it's so important not to allow that behavior as a leader. Doing so empowers the intolerance, hate, misunderstanding, and prejudice. I, for one, will not be a party to it.

    This kid's mom taught the right lesson, and he stood up and was counted, and said to the "establishment", this should not be allowed, and he affected positive change.

    Remember, when you allow a pictureless, disreet, not out, etc. you do everyone a disservice by being an enabler. Much better to make someone "act like a man" than allow them to be such pussies.

    Kudos to this kid and his mom.

    I dunno, Chucky... after all, there are six and a half billion people on earth... why worry about the few who have pictureless RJ profiles?
