    Summary

    “It doesn’t matter here on this campus if you believe that homosexuality is a sin, or if you think it is the best thing since the invention of the spray tan. The fact of the matter is that gay and lesbian and bisexual people exist. ... And everyone, every single student has a right to come to this school and learn without harassment, no matter how different they are from the good ‘ol strappin’ southern white boys we glorify so readily here."

    “I have spent twenty years keeping quiet about the things I’ve seen. I will not be quiet about it for another day. I call myself a decent man. I hear people every day talking about how important manners are in the South. How we are good and moral and superior because of that morality. And I want to believe it. I want to see it. And I think it’s time we stop paying lip service to the idea that we are decent people and start actually acting like decent people.”

    "The difference between life and death isn’t who they are. It’s who you are. You can be a hero, or a villain here. There are no innocent bystanders."

    This fic is entirely talking, all trauma is "survivors speaking out", not happening during.

    Bookmark Notes:

    Coach’s speech made me cry the first time I read it. It was so good and so perfect and I was so overwhelmed. I live in the Deep South and this was what I needed after some of the days I’ve had at school. I live in a football town, and I’m luckier the most because of the University. We used to have a gay bar downtown, we have Spectrum, EDUCATE, PFLAG, and so many more, we have support where many have none, we have a coffeeshop where the baristas are nonbinary and have the most beautiful blue hair, and I am so lucky. My friends are so lucky. We are ALL so lucky that we can be who we are, but it’s not always enough to just know that you’re lucky. Sometimes you don’t feel very lucky. Because people will kick you down any chance they get. But this made it better. I know it’s not real and this is fictional, but even so. Having someone, someone who is a teacher, stand up and say enough is enough, well that means more than I can say.
