Tolerance 101: From the mouths of teenagers

rainbow flagComment posted in this blog about anti-gay repression:

Dear Colin Stewart,

My name is Dawson Wright. I am 14 and i just don’t get why we argue over such things like this. It should be legal everywhere because it is just how that person is and we should not discriminate them because of that. Personally I have 2 gay friends and I see nothing wrong with that.

Dawson Wright

Thank you, Dawson.
