I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK STAR LEA DeLARIA SHOUTS DOWN ANTI-GAY SUBWAY PREACHER

Yesterday may have sucked politically, but here's your feel-good moment of the day.

Here's the deal: Tuesday morning, Lea DeLaria, who plays the charmingly rambunctious lesbian Big Boo on Orange Is the New Black, proved she's in tune with her on-screen counterpart when she shut down a homophobic preacher on an NYC subway on her way to the "Sesame Street" set.

The preacher was, well, preaching, when DeLaria stood up in her "Bad Jew" t-shirt and told the man that he had "no right" to "force-feed" his religious beliefs to his fellow New Yorkers.

She also tells the man that he's the reason America's in trouble, which prompts him to make a reference to Sodom and Gomorrah and the "sin of homosexuality" which, in turn, causes DeLaria to throw up her arms in frustration and eventually yell "now he calls me a dyke, ladies and gentlemen!"

The standoff between the two is actually pretty epic, although that must have been a rather uncomfortable train ride for the rest of the commuters who bore witness to the confrontation.

The video is after the break. Big Boo would be proud.
