Star Wars is for little girls also.

We really need to stop this bullying bullshit now. Parents talk to your children..come on now.Layla is yet another young girl who was teased at school for liking Star Wars amongst other "boy" things. As a result of the bullying, Layla began to lose herself. She stopped wanting to wear her R2-D2 jacket and Guardians of the Galaxy shirt out of fear of being ridiculed. 501st Garrison Tyranus led the charge and rallied messages of support from#501st members all over the world to encourage Layla to be herself. Taking it one step further, Layla became the next recipient of the custom Stormtrooper armor originally built for another girl (Katie Goldman) who was in a similar situation. After suiting up, Layla was whisked away to meet "Weird Al" Yankovic at a local concert where 501st members were participating on stage. This excited young #StarWars fan now proudly carries the trading cards of her 501st supporters in a Chewbacca backpack and can't wait for the next opportunity to troop in armor. Her favorite part of wearing the costume? She loves when people say, "What a cute little boy!" only to discover that there's a girl under that helmet! #BadGuysDoingGood #HeartOfTheForce #StopBullying
