Khloe Kardashian feels bullied by Perez Hilton

19 Oct

If you haven’t been under a rock lately you know about the “Trevor Project’s It Gets Better” movement where celebrities are creating messages about how life gets in better in support of LGBT youth.  Khloe created an “It gets better” video and it is really touching. Khloe brings up a great point that anyone can be bullied even celebrities. “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” is not true, words do hurt sometimes more than physical abuse.  We all need to remember what our words can do to others.

Remember that we are all people that deserve love and happiness and respect.  Wear purple tomorrow Oct 20th in support of ending hate.

Gay Teens and Bullying leads to Suicide

18 Oct

If you are a parent you know that kids don’t know hate, they are taught to hate.  Kids don’t know that other people are poor, rich, gay, straight, ugly, pretty, skinny or fat, they are taught to notice those things and are taught to judge or hate based on those unchangeable elements of a person.  My goal as a parent is to raise kids that love and accept all people no matter what they believe or where they come from, I think that is the most important moral lesson you can teach a child or follow yourself.

Gay ridicule and discrimination has been an issue for all time but recently with more openly gay teens taunting and cyber bullying has reached an all time high.  This has to stop! Being a teenager is a tough time for anyone but being a Gay, Lesbian or Transgendered teenager adds a whole new element of difficulty to this portion of their lives. With the recent suicides of of many teens after enduring bullying and threats from their peers people should really open their eyes to what their closed mindedness does to others.

No matter what you believe, LGBT people are just that “people” with feelings, dreams ambitions just like everyone.  They don’t choose their sexual orientation just like you or I do not choose our race but they are ridiculed for something that they have no control over. Compassion and understanging is the best thing that people can share with others and with LGBT individuals and youth this can help more than you know.

Kids are coming out much earlier than they used to  which is great that they are comfortable enough to be themselves at a young age but sometimes this also causes unecessary bullying as well.  In September a 13 year old California boy hung himself from a tree after being continuously tanted and bullied about being gay.  This tragedy should not happen, a person, definitely not a child should not be harrased to a point that he feels the only way out is to end his life.

The old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones will never hurt me” is a lie and people need to not underestimate the words that you say.  You never know how someone will take a comment or something you see as a joke!

So many celebrities are really advoating the cause of ending bullying and general gay awareness and support which is a great way to get the word out for the cause.  Lady Gaga is a huge gay advocate and her next albulm will be titled “We were born like this” which is a reference to  being comfortable in your own skin and being comfortable with who you are. She is also a huge advocate for the reappeal of “Don’t ask Don’t Tell.” Take a look at some of the best celebrity videos for this cause donning the title “It gets better” which was started by “The Trevor Project” which is a 24 suicide hotline for LGBT youth.

If you want to support this cause you can go to Gay Rights website.  There are loads of information, resources and support for all.  Wendesday is a day to wear purple to end hate so don’t forget to pull out your purple ensemble and support this great cause.

Anti-Gay Baton Rouge Granite Co. in Stone Age « RJW Blog

30 Aug

A friend of mine tipped me off to this article about a local Louisiana retailer in Baton Rouge refusing service to an openly gay couple.  This sort of story should open the eyes of any business owner that plans to commit such descrimiation to its customers.

Business owners need to remember that a customer is a customer and I wonder how this business would be boycotted if the owner refused on the basis of race, religious affliliation, gender or any other unchangeable trait possessed by a person which has no bearing on their purchase.

I ask that you retweet this article, share it on facebook and any other social media outlet you may use.

Yay for the Gays :) Prop 8 Overturned In California, Ruled Unconstitutional (Photos)

This is something that I feel very strongly about.  God wouldn’t want us to outrule love, no matter what it looks like. Now people are seeing Gay citizens for what they are…people just like you and me that SHOULD have all of the same rights and none of the hardships that they do for something that they have no control over.  Just like I cannot control that I am straight.

Discrimination and hate are choices that you make…love is love!
