True Courage and the Revenge of the Bullied Kid
Oh no. I love my little island but I've got to leave it...in a hurry. To go into the city to a friend's place...with TWO television sets.
One to watch my beloved Habs.
And the other to watch this ultimate fight.
Because Georges St. Pierre is one of my Canadian heroes.
Oh I know what you're thinking.
OMG Simon is a dum jock AND a gay animal !!!! Duh. Hit me with a frying pan.
I can't do much about the dum or the jock part. But if you've read this blog you know that I never wanted to fight. The bullies forced me to take up martial arts. I just watch fights to learn things. And I do recognize that true courage comes in many forms.
Like this Canadian's coming out story.
I don't know what will happen professionally ... that is the fear, but I guess I can't really be concerned about what will happen, because it's my truth.
Now THAT takes real guts.
Just like I recognize that sometimes there are better ways to get back at the bullies than learning how to fight them.
Why hurt anyone when you can.......... SING?
Like this bullied kid does...
Yikes. I have to admit that sad but brave little fella kinda choked me up. Thank goodness nobody saw me.
Although, probably because I'm gay and we have to endure so much... and even though I'm dum.... I also know that sometimes real men cry too.
I just want to make sure EVERYONE knows that I'm so damn butch.
I'll probably cry even MORE ..... if the Habs lose tonight.
Have a great weekend everyone !!!
