Students Stand Up And Support Gay Former Catholic School Teacher Who Was Fired For 'Nontraditional' Pregnancy

students stand up and support former catholic school teacher who was fired for nontraditional pregnancy

Ugh!

We hate that this happened to this teacher, but we're SO glad to see all of the support she's received since!

Barb Webb was recently fired after working at an all girls Catholic school for the past nine years. She spent countless hours at Marian High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, but the former teacher - who is gay - believes she was let go because she is pregnant.

The timeline of the previous months would certainly prove that reasoning, since she told her bosses that she was pregnant in the middle of July, about a month after she first learned she was pregnant, and was subsequently fired in August.

Here's what she wrote on Facebook at the time:

Paul Walker's Death Being Paid Tribute By Huge Car Rally!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadGIFsPaul Walker

We're still so sad Paul Walker had to pass so suddenly and tragically, and thousands of auto enthusiasts feel the same way.

That's why this Saturday a large car rally is scheduled to happen on Hercules Street in Valencia, which is very close to where Paul got into his deadly accident.

A full 20,000 are expected to rev their engines of support and show up. However, authorities have made it clear that anyone caught speeding or doing burnouts or wheelies (or…ollies? Can cars do that?) will be cited and possibly have their vehicle impounded right there in front of them.

With a huge police presence we hope no crimes are committed. We definitely don't want another crash site thief to strike again.

Hopefully this mournful auto meet up will be fast, furious, and, most importantly, safe!

Obviously, the ruling in the George Zimmerman case is bringing out a lot of heated reactions from celebrities.

Similarly, Solange Knowles led a protest rally outside of Borough Hall in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday to express her shock and appall at the recent judgement that George Zimmerman was completely guiltless in his shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin.

But Solange isn't the only Knowles upset with the jury's decision.

Her sister Beyoncé stopped her concert in Bridgestone Arena, Tennessee to honor Trayvon Martin after the not guilty verdict had been reached.

At the protest, Solange was seen holding the sign (above) with a quote from human rights' activist, Malcolm X, which read:

If you were planning on hitting up the Fashion Police writers rally, you’re too late!

The rally took place today outside of E!’s headquarters, and the picketers wrapped up around 12:30 this afternoon (as planned).

In the morning, strikers took up the HIGHlarious chant of:

LOLz!! Clever and appropriate! Definitely got the point accross.

There were around 150 picketers at the peak of the rally. Bryan Cook, one of the writers involved, addressed the crowd along with anyone who cared to listen.
