Today, and by that I mean yesterday, as I was leaving the pool I heard a group of girls say, "That's so gay!" and I I turned and stopped and I yelled at them. I said, "HEY! Don't you dare use gay as a synonym for stupid, if you think something's stupid say it's stupid. That's like saying, 'Oh man, that's so underage girls wearing mini skirts to attract no one.' " and they shut they bumbaclot mouths. They were with a bunch of dudes, too, but I didn't hear what the guys had to say. When I showered and left the building to catch the bus I saw the girls outside by a tree and when I walked by they stopped their chattering. I showed them who was boss.
I will admit though, that there are times when I don't do this, like if it were a group of body builders I probably would have kept my mouth shut, or at least joined in and secretly mocked them. However, there have been few times where I stood up for myself to some bigger, older, stronger person than me and I came out unscatched. So..... size doesn't really matter, but it can be intimidating sometimes.
