Well said! Peer pressure is intense. And you know what? If you go by national polling and sentiment, the number of people who respect LGBTQ folks and want equality are in a pretty big majority.

I would guess that the number of people who respect 14-year-olds and don’t want to see them mistreated and bullied is even higher.

All of us acting together can exert an enormous amount of peer pressure. Working together, we have the power to change things for the better.
