It is actually from the ABC news program “What Would You Do?” Basically, the show gets actors to do certain things to see how the public around them would react. This episode was filed in a restaurant called Norma’s Café in Farmers Branch, Texas. Actors portraying a le***an couple with children were...

Bullying: A National Epidemic – Katie Couric

Good read!

Today, 160,000 kids stayed home from school. Not because they were sick or forgot to do their homework, but because they were afraid of being harassed by a bully. One in every four kids get bullied, which adds up to 13 million kids a year. Today we met two victims, Whitney Kropp and Katie Uffens.

Dad Protects Son from Bullies by Wearing a Skirt. Guess What? it Works

Nils Pickert's 5 year old son likes wearing dresses. If anyone thinks that's odd they can take it up with Nils. He's the guy in the skirt. The German dad has become a role model not only for his son, but for parents around the world, after a photograph of the pair holding hands in red skirts, spread...

Shaping destiny out of colored shadows

A little article about me and how I found my way to GLSEN.

It was 6 a.m. and he had just driven 14 hours to enter the city limits of Los Angeles. Everything he owned was in the trunk of his car. It felt like deliverance to the 21-year-old watching the sunrise before him.

How a parent could write this to a son is beyond me. This is floating around the internet, and I found it to be repulsive so I thought I would share.

As the writing is sketchy, I thought I would type the text out for better reading:

James,
This is a difficult but necessary letter to write.
I hope that your telephone call was not to receive my blessing for the degrading of your lifestyle. I have fond memories of our times together, but that is all in the past.
Don't expect any further conversations with me. No communications at all. I will not come to visit, nor do I want you in my house.
You've made your choice, though wrong (as) it may be. God did not intend for this unnatural lifestyle.
If you choose not to attend my funeral, my friends and family will understand.
have a great birthday and good life.
No present exchanges will be accepted.
Dad
