Today I Wear Purple...

Amazing post today by The Doe or The Deer...
"Straight Americans need... an education of the heart and soul. They must understand - to begin with - how it can feel to spend years denying your own deepest truths, to sit silently through classes, meals, and church services while people you love toss off remarks that brutalize your soul." ~Bruce Bawer, The Advocate, 28 April 1998


  1. I saw that video and second your thoughts. This hatred has no place in our society and tears down people heartlessly. I saw another excellent you tube video where the interviewer asked people if being gay was a choice. Then asked the (strait) interviewees when they remember making the choice to be straight.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this. I rarely take time to watch video clips if they're more than a minute, but this one was very powerful and I'm so glad I watched it. I borrowed it to share with my cyberworld. :) He was so brave to share his very personal story so publicly.

    I haven't heard much about what schools are doing to counteract bullying, but I hope the teens who are suffering will take courage as this message reaches them and we stem this despicable tide.


I would love to hear your thoughts...especially if they are nice! So post away friends, post away!
