Kim sees a lot of gay bullying at her school, but she’s scared to do anything about it, because she thinks the bullies will turn on her, too. The world needs a lot more Kim’s though!

So if you’ve found yourself ridiculed for standing up for gay rights, or anything you feel is right, here are some tips to not let them get you down or give them fuel for their waning fires.
