This is a question Little Victories

I recently received a 2 voucher from a supermarket after complaining vociferously about the poor quality of their own-brand Rich Tea biscuits, which I spent on more tasty, tasty biscuits. Tell us about your trivial victories that have made life a tiny bit better.

Sweet Transvestite
My school had a "sponsored walk" thing every year to help raise money and stuff for stuff that probably wouldn't be bought until the kids who raised money for it had left (i.e. ME). We were encouraged to do the walk in fancy dress for the hell of it, which made it more bearable.

About a week before said sponsored walk, one of my best friends decided to come out as gay (Last weeks of Year 11 and all that) and got mocked to shit by the tards you'd probably expect. Various insults pertaining to cross-dressing and being a "Batty" were thrown about, and he was the shyest person I've ever met (Took me nearly a month to get a complete sentence out of him) - the bullies just thought they could get away with it because he'd never say anything to the teachers due to his almost non-existent self confidence.

Me and a few other friends had an idea that would be A) Funny as fuck and B) Good to try and get back at the bullies in our typical passive-aggressive way, misfits that we were.

Day of the sponsored walk, the five of us turned up to school in full Rocky Horror gear. Magenta and Riff-Raff (Me) in those weird space suit outfits from the end of the film, along with Rocky, Columbia and Frank-N-Furter (My gay friend) to be precise.

The looks (and cheers) we got were fantastic, and Frank-N-Furter flirted with the bullies from afar for a laugh at first, because they hadn't realised it was a guy in that corset. So when they happily sauntered over thinking it was one of the various bints in our year, my friend screamed "SURPRISE!" in their faces as he pulled off the wig to their looks of absolute horror at what they had just done. In front of about 30 other people in the school. The rumours spread like wildfire.

I guess giving them a taste of their own harassing medicine may not be much of a victory, but it was the most fun I'd had up until then.

Note: An undisclosed amount of alcohol may have been ingested prior to leaving "Frank's" house in our get-ups, mostly in the cases of Rocky and Frank, who wanted a bit of liquid confidence. Probably explains why we were so loud that day. "Frank" is no longer as shy as he was, and his 18th a few weeks ago raised him to new levels of courage (and loudness). Good for him, I say.

This is awesome! ^_^ Good luck to him, having come out as being not-entirely-straight at secondary school myself, he has my full sympathy for this. I only wish I'd had the courage to camp it up in such spectacular fashion prior to leaving.

I actually read that as 'have a dick', must be the subliminal brainwashing that the Daily Mail warns me about.....

So cosmic balance is restored.

It's a good thing "Frank" never met disasterprone, he'd have probably hauled Frank to the nearest cop shop and tried to get him jailed.
Then got really stroppy and arrogant on being informed that homosexuality is not actually a criminal offence.

If i could click a thousand times I would.
The visual image I have of "Frank" de-wigged and exclaiming surprise to the horrified bullies is a fantastic one.

Buy him a beer for me. *click*

Despite the fact my knowledge of Rocky Horror stems entirely from watching 'Glee'
I had a great mental image of the scene. Great story and not a drop of maudlin 'woe is me, I'm gay' angst, which is a definite plus!

Waiting for headteacher to arrive to take an assembly for our year 11.
One particularly quiet lad (not popular, but not unpopular - got on with everybody) stood up, and went to the front and said:

"Ladies and Gentlemen! I have an announcement to make. I'm gay. I'm here, I'm queer and if you don't like it you can fill me in after school, but I just have to get it off my chest after all this time."

My school wasn't best known for it's acceptance of LGBT policies, and the pupils were worse. What with us being a rough rural community. This could go one of two ways, and he has 6 months of school left I thought. Within a flash, one of the bullies stood up and said "Thank fuck for that! We were starting to worry you might be straight!"

Acceptance was immediate. Took bollocks that did!
