It Gets Better: Apple Employees

THIS is what it’s all about….


Everyone Needs to REALLY look, hear and feel this.  Think about it…we ALL have SOMETHING that others don’t like, others don’t agree with, others won’t look past their faces…YET.  One day, one day.

This is the message that is starting to creep into mainstream…little by little.

No…Ya probably WON’T see this on VH1, but it’s out there.  And the message is clear!

NO MORE LABELS!  Bury them.  They hurt, they sadden, they kill.

Direction of the Blog!


This is more of an informative post than anything. We do great work here, and advertise when possible, but we understand that many people do not have time to devote to another social networking site. Therefore, I am reminding everyone that the sidebar here is a one stop shop for equality. Most of the organizations focus on the eradication of the bullying problem, suicide prevention, and LGBT youth centric issues, as this is the foundation of Stop The Hate Stop The Hurt’s Purpose. However, please remember that the ultimate goal is equality for ALL people, no matter superficial characteristics, as we are all people. If you only have a second, look to the sidebar, and there are links to MANY reputable, active organizations and websites. Signing a petition or getting information is only a click away. Also, later today, there will be additional websites added. Some will be bullying related, others LGBT rights oriented, and still others links to get laws changed to reflect equality in American government. Thank you for your time, effort, and interest in Stop The Hate Stop The Hurt!

 

Feel free to treat this as an open post to ask questions or have discussions! We are all in this together! Thanks again.

And the Bullying hits home…..

Yeah…MY kids school… MY kids classmates…MY world….

One Dead…  Another ones life in the gallows… Bullying…. I can’t even talk about it right now.  Doesn’t matter what it was about…doesn’t matter at all… Nothing matters to the kid that’s going to be buried in the next day or two.

Two lives, destroyed in an instant, a flash in the grand scheme of things, but none the less, gone….

Doesn’t matter who bullied who, the deed is done…at what expense?  Two families ripped apart.

Will it make a difference?  Will anything be done?  Will others learn a lesson?  Will it ever stop?

My heart is torn into shreds right now…..  I feel so small, so insignificant, so useless.   I can teach my own not to bully, but who teaches the others?  Apparently no one.  Not even the schools, not effectively anyway.  Big deal,  suspend them off a bus.   Then what?  It’s party time…now they are ‘cool’ and big shots.

I’m sick to my stomach…

Congress Votes to Repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell!”


This disgusting, unconstitutional, degrading policy has finally been repealed! Gays will soon be able to serve openly in the military. We are one step closer to having the LGBT population NOT be treated like second- class citizens. Thank you to the Democrats, and to the Republican Senators who so bravely went against their party to end discrimination in the US Armed Forces.

NOH8 PSA – “It Gets Better & “Anti-Bullying” Video


“The media has been flooded in recent weeks with stories about young LGBT teens from all over the country who have taken their lives because of the relentless bullying around them, and those tragic stories are still continuing to break. It’s clear that youth everywhere need our help, and that’s why we gathered a group of our celebrity supporters to create a series of video PSA’s that address the issues of bullying and teen suicides. They knew how important it was to act quickly on this issue, and we hope that you will listen carefully to what they have to say.”

Arkansas School Board Member Says Gay Students Should Die…


An Arkansas School Board Member blasted “Spirit Day,” which was a day to honor the LGBT teens who committed suicide recently.

He said, “Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. The only way I’m wearin’ it for them is if they all commit suicide.”

This man is on the School Board.  What does that say about the leaders who are teaching our children?

There ARE actions we can take.  Please follow this link to read the full article and to see what you can do.
