I have decided that from time to time, I am going to call out a Fight Back Woman when I see or read about one. My friend Pete called my attention to the horrors presented in this article he posted: http://www.fanhouse.com/2010/11/22/texas-town-courts-fail-cheerleader/
What a rock this girl was in the face of such utter failure by her school and community to protect and assist her. She held her head high and REFUSED to alter her story or bow to the pressures of people who give new meaning to the words incompetent and inhumane.
Want to do something about the hellhole of the Silsbee, Texas Independent School District? Sign the petition at the bottom of this update about the case from Ms.Com: http://msmagazine.com/blog/blog/2010/10/25/cheerleaders-father-speaks-out/ Do it for little girls everywhere.
