I just had to share this with you guys cause I think it’s awesome. I love his reasoning behind doing this saying that the woman was trying to make him uncomfortable in his school by protesting with the said sign. So his goal was to make her feel the same way. Here’s what Chris Pesto (below) said:
I decided that because this woman thought it was okay to make me feel uncomfortable in my home, I would retaliate and make her feel just as uncomfortable, if not more.
This woman was wearing a ankle-length corduroy skirt, which, as we all know, is a fashion nono. So, in order to make her feel uncomfortable, I stood next to her and held a sign that said Corduroy skirts are a sin! I don’t think I have ever drawn so much attention in my life. SO many people asked to take a picture with me, I got laughs, high fives and there were the few that even cursed off the woman standing behind me.
As I drew interest to what was going on with myself and the woman with the hateful sign, I started to draw a crowd that stood with me in support. Before I knew it I had 100+ people holding signs for gay rights asking people to honk their horns to support. I was interviewed by a news station, and more than 5 student organization papers, and the post standard of syracuse.
I never expected anybody to come stand by me and support and I appreciate it so much that everyone came! It meant so much and it proved to those ignorant people that we aren’t afraid, and we will put up a fight.
I’m proud that Syracuse has such a homosexual friendly community.
I love all the support he received from people and this just shows us that little by little the world is changing. Where does she get off judging people specially in that skirt? LOL
