You go girl!
While Madonna has been busy attending the schools she helped build in Malawi, she now wants to help girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan get an education, and she's doing it by auctioning off her Fernand Leger Trois femmes à la table rouge painting in order to raise $$$ for the Ray of Light Foundation.
Her Majesty bought Leger's painting back in 1990 at Sotheby's, and considering that it's worth a cool $5-$7 million now, she felt that handing it off to the Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale would be AH-MAYZING because she can help girls get their learn on.

Susan Johnson is a performing arts teacher who works in Michigan and when one of her students approached her to play a song that was pro-gay, she thought it would be a good experience for all of her students.
Here's what she said:
"I asked him a few questions about the song…if it was violent, if there was any profanity, and he said no, I really love my kids and I never want to hurt them, but I also know that there's a lot of bullying and there's a lot of gay bashing and racial issues going on in our country and I want the kids to feel comfortable in my class no matter who they are. This is one of the things in my school that we're trying to practice and we're trying to instill in our students is tolerance to diversity."
But her administration disagreed.
