Star Wars Kid Speaks Up

A former classmate of Ghyslain Raza (otherwise known as the infamous Star Wars Kid) talks about what it was like going through law school with him and how amazing it is to hear Ghyslain speak about cyberbullying, ten years later:

Think about that burden, and the awful paranoia and loathing that would fester. And think about the publicity and retraumatization that will entail from stepping out like this, especially considering how much he has been protecting his identity the last 10 years.

Considering all of that, it is fucking HEROIC that he has decided to step into public and take a stand for such a good and appropriate cause. I would never in a million years have the guts to do it.
