In the pink.

Gakked from elizabear who got it from one of her friends, who got the news from Nova Scotia The Chronicle Herald 

Seems some 9th grader showed up at school wearing a pink shirt.  And a group of bullies were mocking him and threatening to beat him up.

Two days later, 1/2 the student body shows up at school wearing PINK!!!

I’ve stood around too long’
Central Kings students wear pink to send bullies a message
By IAN FAIRCLOUGH Valley Bureau | 3:51 PM

CAMBRIDGE — Two students at Central Kings Rural High School fought back against bullying recently, unleashing a sea of pink after a new student was harassed and threatened when he showed up wearing a pink shirt.They used the Internet to encourage people to wear pink and bought 75 pink tank tops for male students to wear. They handed out the shirts in the lobby before class last Friday — even the bullied student had one.It was hard to miss the mass of students in pink milling about in the lobby, especially for the group that had harassed the new Grade 9 student.“The bullies got angry,” said Travis. “One guy was throwing chairs (in the cafeteria). We’re glad we got the response we wanted.”
