I browse so many articles online each day, but this one's my favorite today, by far. After seeing a lesbian couple outside a bar in Washington State, William Adam Lane started yelling nasty comments, and even smashed the back window of their car. Were the women intimidated? Did they cry, or go into hysterics, or faint? Nope. Instead, one of the women tackled the man and pinned him to the ground to keep him from getting away, while they waited for the authorities to arrive. The guy was arrested for harassment and could be charged with assault. Aside from the damage to their car, both women are fine.
There are so many reasons why these fine ladies are my heroines of the day. They stood up for themselves in the face of a bully, and showed everyone that women can hold their own against a man acting like an ass. Three cheers!
