The president is one of the latest to add his voice to the anti-bullying “It Gets Better” campaign with this video shot at the White House last week.
He references the terrible spate of recent suicides among young Americans who had been bullied just for being gay, lesbian or transgendered. Mr. Obama offers words of encouragement and coping techniques for anyone who is feeling depressed because he or she is in a similar situation.
We have a lot of fun on the Kevin & Bean show in the morning and make fun of a lot of people for a lot of things but it is never okay to intentionally hurt someone by words or actions because of their sexual preference. Except for Psycho Mike because who the hell knows what that guy is into.
P.S. If you don’t think we have a lot of work ahead of us in this country on the issue of gay acceptance, take a look at a couple of the comments on the president’s video from the YouTube page.
