"But no they tag on to it approval of homosexuality and the implication that anybody who objects is just like those bullies out there and they’re leading you or others into suicide."
People who voice disapproval to homosexuality are bullies, and their actions have caused suicide in the past.

"I’ll say that again, It Gets Better. It’s a video campaign organized by a radical and vicious, vicious, vulgar, profane, anti-Christian, I can’t say enough things along that line about him. Dan Savage.
--- so you really, really like him!
He’s an activist, been around for years. This It Gets Better campaign is a video campaign that a lot of the leftist politicians including our president have jumped on board, so have some celebrities.
--- Iddums diddums hasn't been invited - ah!
It’s supposed to encourage kids, that’s great. Encourage kids, say, you know if you’re having trouble, you’re getting bullied, you feel despaired, don’t give up.
---'feel despaired' is not English in this context.
That would be a worthy goal if they stop there. But no they tag on to it approval of homosexuality and the implication that anybody who objects is just like those bullies out there and they’re leading you or others into suicide. That’s just wrong, it’s evil, it’s dark, this Dan Savage has already come out attacking my friend Peter [LaBarbera]."
--- Some of those kids may be homosexual. It's not a choice or a lifestyle. Get that into your thick noggin once and for all time! Those kids need understanding, and help in understanding themselves too. They do not need to be preached at by religious bigots. They do not need to end up living a lie like Ted Haggard. If you want to be really biblical, linda, shut up. You are told to be quiet in the assembly as a mere woman. So, you are being unbiblical in presuming to make any comment on religion. No doubt you would not be unduly put out by a gay kid being picked upon to the point where they even kill themselves. One less gay to drive to suicie, I suppose. For the love of God, of course.

Dan Savage is a douchebag for a number of reasons. The It Gets Better project is really, really not one of them.

I'll even go so far as saying that VOICING disapproval doesn't make you a bully, but it does make you a bigot.
It's when you take that disapproval -- and way too many people do -- and use it to assault someone gay, verbally or physically -- that's the worse problem. I realize that changing your mind might be an impossible task; I'm perfectly content with changing your behavior.

Dan Savage is a jerk of epic proportions but his gift to the world remains:
santorum (san-TOR-um) n. The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

Bullying is bad, unless it's a homo. Then it's OK.
6/24/2011 5:38:33 AM
So it's not okay to bully, but it is if the victim is gay? Can you say double standard?
6/24/2011 5:40:17 AM
How dare they say that bullying homosexuals is wrong?
But no they tag on to it approval of homosexuality and the implication that anybody who objects is just like those bullies out there and they’re leading you or others into suicide.
That's because it's true. But you don't care if a few gays kill themselves, do you?

Linda Harvey is a bully and that's because she's so weak. She's weak because she listens to the slimy toads who do the work of the arch poisoner Himself, Bible God. The Bible God family, specifically Mr. God and His Son Jesus, are complete arseholes who like to spread bigotry among the world's weaker vessels, for obscure and mysterious reasons known only to themselves. I suppose they enjoy sniggering at the antics of their spectacularly inept zombies.
6/24/2011 7:01:44 AM
I know it's hard for you to grasp, because somehow you have deluded yourself into believing that you are in the right, but when you denounce kids for what they feel and tell them they are damned and teach other kids to shun them, that's bullying. It makes children feel bad, it makes them hate themselves. It makes them feel alone when they need support. It makes some of them desperate enough that they take their lives. You are the vicious ones, who deny the evidence of the hatred you espouse destroying people, despite your bullshit "love the sinner, hate the sin". Dan Savage is trying to help children hurt by you and people like you. It's pretty fucking worthy if you ask me.
6/24/2011 7:29:26 AM
Let me tell you something, Ms. Harvey. I am straight. Completely straight. I have never once even entertained the notion of having sex with another man. The very idea disgusts me. (No offense to all the gay people on this site.) I have seen several videos which are, as you put it, "approving of homosexuality". Guess what? Watching them has not decreased my desire for the opposite sex by one quantum. If people are not attracted to members of their gender, then nothing will change that. So it is perfectly safe to show this video to children, as it will not cause any of them to "catch teh ghey" who were not already homosexuals.
6/24/2011 7:34:07 AM
So the multitude of people that have committed suicide because fuckers like you can't leave them alone is just a lie?
Here's a hint, treat people like people and not like subhuman beasts because something goes on in their bedroom you don't need to be involved in
I swear, religious zealots must be closet gays, they spend so much time obsessing over gays
6/24/2011 7:37:57 AM
We should protect people from bullying! So long as they're not the people that I like to bully!
6/24/2011 8:07:37 AM
so bullying, that is, repetitively insulting people who are different and judging people on their identity and/or physical-make-up rather than their actions, is bad, unless it's about the one specific part of physical-make-up you don't like?
6/24/2011 8:15:15 AM
No it's not.
YOU are wrong. YOU are evil.
Fuck anyone who is anti-homosexual you are worse than the bullies bitch you're supposed to be grown up you dumb cunt.
6/24/2011 9:10:23 AM
Try not to protest if people do exacty the same you do to homosexuals. For the sake of consistency.
6/24/2011 9:25:16 AM
Thank you, Linda, for preaching your hatred. Now fuck off.
6/24/2011 9:49:15 AM
Let's all join Dan in attacking LaBarbera!
6/24/2011 11:34:18 AM
I've heard this vile bullshit my entire life from people like you. About two and a half years ago, I finally reached my breaking point and snapped. No, I didn't go on a violent tirade or kill anyone. I just stopped caring. It sucked the life out of me to the point that I simply didn't have the energy to hate myself anymore, even though I wanted to and "knew" that I "should." On the other hand, it turns out that loving myself doesn't drain the life out of me. In fact, it makes me full of life and energy, but that's beside the point.
Do you fucking know how full of self-loathing and near rock bottom you have to be that you can't even muster the will to hate yourself anymore? I'm sure you don't, because your white, heterosexual privilege has always sheltered you from that sort of thing. Society hasn't constantly shunned you as an inferior, second-class degenerate, so you've always had at least a shred of confidence and self-esteem. Unlike me, you didn't have to "earn" your confidence and self-esteem by enduring internalized hatred to the point it broke you. I can tell you, though, it sure ain't fun.
But you know what, Linda? It's so bad that I can't bring myself to wish something like that upon any other person, no matter who they are or what they do, not even you. I have enough empathy and perspective to be above that. The worst I wish upon you is the pain and strife of realizing how wrong you are and how any souls have been crushed by your kind of insidious hatred.
In short, kindly stfu, sweetheart. Nobody cares to hear your passive-aggressive, heterosexist "bullying is wrong, but queers still need to know their place" bullshit anymore. You're still a homophobic bigot no matter how much you try to sugarcoat it. It doesn't make you look any "better" or more "reasonable" than if you had just come out and said all the nasty faggots need to be rounded up and lynched. At least the people who do that have the decency to be upfront about how they really feel.

Traslation: Bullying is only wrong if it's against people we approve of.
6/24/2011 11:59:50 AM
Gay people can't choose to be gay, douchebags however can totally choose to be a douchebag.
Stop being a douchebag, is what I'm trying to get at here.
EDIT: Really, what's your fucking problem anyway that people can't do and be who they want to be! People who legitimately hurt people are the problem, not people minding their own goddamned business.
6/24/2011 12:35:15 PM
Linda, I doubt if many people give a rat's ass about you or your simplistic beliefs.
6/24/2011 1:33:51 PM
Those people who object to homosexuality are just a previous generation of bullies who were never confronted when they were in school. Do you have a problem with understanding causality or something?
6/24/2011 2:56:41 PM
Because, Linda, they ARE just like the bullies. Lol, you're no authority on what's evil or dark, because I'm pretty sure those adjectives can apply to you and the other fucktards who want to deny equal rights to loving, consenting adults.
