That's not how you do it.

Towleroad blog reports anti-gay graffiti on a trolley that honors Harvey Milk. On his chin you see "FAG" written. Inside, under his name, someone wrote "FAGGOT". Someone else crossed out the word. That's not how you do it. Under "faggot" I would have simply written:

And proud of it,
thank you very much.

I carry a Sharpie on me at all times just in case I see graffiti that needs correcting. And trust me, I see quite a bit. I enjoy putting some touches on that which needs correcting. But the real thing you want to show is a better sense of humor than the asshole who put the first comment. And definitely, outshine them. It wins every time.
