If our local sex advice columnist, Dan Savage, does nothing else for the rest of his life, he can rest easy because he started the It Gets Better project. Good work, Dan. The recent video contribution to the project from Pixar is so well done that it’s been seen practically everywhere. I’m posting it again anyway as a homage to the project, and to all the contributors, and on the tiny, tiny chance that someone who needs to see it will run across it on this little blog that has about three regular readers.
Posting the video also commemorates the fact that the repellent organization called the Family Research Council was just placed on a list of hate groups as compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC got its start tracking the activities of the KKK and filing lawsuits against them. They continue to track organized bigotry of various kinds, such as the extreme anti-gay venom spouted by the The Family Research Council. This council which allegedly supports “faith, family, and freedom” actually fits quite comfortably on a list of various neo-nazi groups, the KKK, and similar despicable institutions.
