Quote of the day

"After years of dealing with the homophobic comments aimed at me by the preacher, I felt I needed to stand up against these false prophets spewing bigotry. I have fought hard for my rights. I have seen too much tragedy in the LGBTQ community to let a man in cargo pants tell me I am the embodiment of sin."

Florida Gulf Coast University student Brice Ehmig on standing up to a bigoted bully who had made his mission to make her life a misery, droning out his rantings by playing the bagpipes. I've long thought that bagpipes are an offensive weapon, so it's just nice to hear them put to extremely good use for once.
