This campaign has been going on for over a year now. You may have seen some of the PSA's on television during the last year. I can't tell if the campaign is working, so I'm doing my part to keep it out there.
Please take a few moments and check out the web link above, It is quite extensive and has many personal stories, PSA's and resources for parents and educators. The twitter counter above is just one of many counters and website banners that are available to share.
After reading one of my newly found favorite blogs "living my life, whatever" (check it out, it's on my blog roll too), I was really impressed with his 'I want to be gay again" blog post on Tuesday.
One thing that really stuck out to me was reading that he did not really understand what it means, when people say "that's so gay!" It is not a very nice thing to say, and unfortunately our teenagers are using this phrase a lot. Hopefully they will some day think before they speak, especially if they see some of the PSA's, which are showing on channels like MTV and VH1. Hopefully sometime in the future, we will never hear this insulting remark.
Have you heard somebody say "that's so gay,' and if so how did you react? What will you say if someone says that to you or someone around you? COMMENTS PLEASE! Thanks in advance. ~ John
