Thanks, Alix, I was hoping to post something about this but my day has been a hectic one so far.

I am wearing pink today, but I also have this cause on my heart always. I was a victim of bullying all my life growing up and even into adulthood. It is something that no one should ever have to deal with.

are boys supposed to wear pink?

'cause that'll get your butt kicked in most places.

LOL!

That would definitely get some guys butt kicked around here.

The bullies could always justify getting away with it by saying "Well he wore a pink shirt!"

Who decides what colors people should wear on the anti anything days?
They need to rethink the colors just a tad.

First one to pick be nekkid all day and see how you feel now gets the door prize.

Just sayin'

i'm all for shirts vs. skins, but tbey never let the girls play.

ok, ok, yeah, i know. this is a serious subject. i'll stop.

when i was a kid, i was pretty skinny and only average height. i was bullied a few times, but learned to stand up to it. for me and less fortunate kids. it's up to the parents to teach kids right from wrong; simple as that. to teach children about their inalienable rights as an individual.

largely, bullies come from a combination of neglected and often disturbed kids, and bad parents.

i think their parents should have to wear pink. i look better in mauve or fuschia.

Fortunately, I do have at least one pink outfit, so I do have at least something to wear...

Unfortunately, it really too late to change clothes now, so I'll have to wear it tomorrow.

Do you think that would be okay?
