Have you smiled and walked away when someone told a joke about “fags?” Were you aware that the number one insult between teenage boys has to do with sexual orientation? When you read the news of young teens killing themselves, do you not think it has anything to do with you? When you see celebrities like Larry King, Ellen Degeneres, Anderson Cooper, Nate Berkus and Dr. Phil speaking out against bullying, do you feel a little more empowered to step up and speak out against gay bashing teens?
Very nice. I used to teach high school, and it’s deniiftely true about the unrealistic images teenagers are faced with. As a young woman, we also have to battle it and be a good role model. Great post!
