The day I came out to everyone was the scariest and most amazing day of my life. I was so happy that I was finally open with who I was. I was me and it seemed like nothing could stand in the way of that. But of course, there was. I was openly lesbian and proud of who I was(and I still am). People at school scream dike in the halls near my and point and yell "ew gross when ever I would talk to my friends whom were girls. I ignored it all and let it go assuming that some day they would grow up and and maybe karma would even jump out at them and bite them in the rear end, but then i saw a girl near my locker get called a "nasty lesbo dike" and then they slapped her in the face and ran off. I ran to her not even knowing who it was but when I got closer I realized it was a very close friend of mine. She had been sticking up for me after seeing other students writing hurtful thing on my locker. We went to the principle of our school and explained what happened he just said "Well I grew up in a different time I don't understand it and I don't agree with it, I'm sorry I can't really help you." So we left and the bullying continued until I spoke with my favorite teacher. She helped me to stick up for myself and others. She is one of the most amazing teachers ever and she is the reason why I stand against bullying today!
