Or BIRTH OF A HERO. That...no, there's a trick for outlining text. If you still want to do it pixel style, try doing that only for pixel text.
(This is for GIMP because I'm assuming all y'alls are using GIMP)
Make a new layer under the text layer. It should be transparent.
On the text layer, right click, "Alpha to Selection".
On the new transparent layer, go to Select > Grow > the desired width of your outline (1 for pixel text)
Now select your outline color and paintbucket on the layer under the text layer.
Select > Deselect or just Ctrl + Shift + A (command for macs, I guess)
If you want you can also add a glow instead of an outline by going on the outline layer Filters > Gaussian Blur.
