4. It's good to pledge to help gays, etc. But they aren't the only ones who are bullied.
They're not even the ones who are bullied the most, just because of the numbers of them versus the numbers of obese kids, dorky-types, etc. All the "different" kids get bullied. If bullying is what you're against, shouldn't the pledge be about that?
