Molly, 17, Antigonish, Nova Scotia

I was in one class and my friend’s boyfriend tried to tell me I was diseased because I was gay, and I just looked him right in the eye and told him to fuck off. I told him it’s pretty shitty how many people have fought and died over the years for gay rights, and an ignorant kid sitting in class is telling me I’m diseased, so shut the fuck up.
