I am a queer female high school sophomore in Maine, and the co-president of one of the largest GSA's in the state. I was appalled when I saw this. It seems as though for every stride Maine makes in the right direction, we have these bigots to contend with. On the bright side, those in favor of equality are putting up such a fight that these people feel threatened enough to sponsor a rally. If they keep spending money nowheres near elections, maybe they'll run out of it when it does come time to vote on something!

I know it's not nice nor is it the sense of this wonderful blog, Jeremy, but I do wish I could sent each of the guest speakers a very large heart-shaped box of laxatives in the guise of chocolate! Bastards!
