It Gets Better: A Message of Hope from the US Senate

The US Senate got together for "The It Gets Better" Campaign. This campaign encourages LGBT youth to try and get through high school without killing themselves because "it gets better."

We've already posted some of these videos in the past. Notably, Tim Gunn's video as WE LOVE HIM.

This video touched us personally. We see the anti-gay hatred every day at work from ignorant Republican conservatives who question "why do they (gay people) need to be married?" In other words, can't they just go away and leave us normal people alone?

It drives us fucking crazy because gay people are our friends, family and co-workers. We cannot even imagine a life without them. We don't consider them second-class citizens without rights. We can't imagine them killing themselves as teenagers either.

It's about time to end the partisan bullshit and political rhetoric regarding the fact that people are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered. It's a fact. It's not something to even debate. And, people start out as kids that are confused enough about life. They don't need other people's bullshit killing their fragile egos to the point where they want to die.

Good for the Senate.
