Students in Brazil — boys and girls — came to school wearing skirts in support of a fellow trans student who was reprimanded by school officials for wearing a skirt. Photo courtesy of Twitter, where the hashtag #VouDeSaia has been used to show support of the kids from around the world.

Nine days after transgender student Maria Muniz was fined by school officials for wearing a skirt, a group of her Colégio Pedro II classmates decided to stage a protest: both male and female students would all wear skirts on the same day.

Soon after their demonstration an ecstatic Muniz learned that the school’s decision was overturned, reports the UK’s Orange News. Pedro II’s principal told Brazil’sGlobo that the school will consider relaxing their dress code.

After the protest, school officials posted a picture of their male and female students wearing wearing skirts to social media, where it became widely shared. Supporters have been writing their support to Muniz using the hashtag #VouDeSaia.

"For me, wearing a skirt was about expressing my freedom over who I am inside and not how society sees me," Muniz told Orange News.

"I am really happy about the way my classmates supported me and hope it serves as an example to others to feel encouraged to do the right thing," she added. "I was always taught at school to accept who you are. I am only trying to live that."

If I saw this while I was walking down the street I think I would legitimately start screaming and weeping in joy.

What the hell happened to the second to last one

My most recent character is supposed to be super sneaky but every time I attempt to steal something I roll 5 or lower. >:(

Start playing The Dark Eye then. With every roll 5 or lower, you’d succeed on just about any check.

Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

cloudy with a chance of “get your village plundered, your women raped and your houses burned” seems a little more close to reality.

Wide spread witch burnings didn’t occur until some centuries later, late Middle Ages, early Renaisance.

But other than that, nice one.

I’ll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne’er a fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me
