Mick Foley, formerly of WWE, appeared protecting this boy, threatening anyone that would tease him an call him a 'gaywad.' I would hear 'gaywad' a lot too but I do not know what it is. The boy refuses to stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance until gay people can marry---equal for all anyone? A substitute teacher prodded him to stand up. I am a substitute teacher and I would not force a kid to stand up if she or he really believed in something ethical. Most cases for me is that if they didn't stand up is because they lie and don't want to stand up. Yay to the Kid! More power to him and yay to his parents! And more power and wa-hoo! to Mr. Mick Foley.
