Check out today’s NY Times to see a FULL PAGE print PSA from our ThinkB4YouSpeak campaign with the Ad Council about the use of anti-LGBT language. Page 23 of the front section!!! Amazing! Thanks, NY Times, for donating the space.
The ad text says:
Dyke: 1. Be honest with yourself. You’re not thinking of “an embankment that holds back and controls water.” The problem is, words like “dyke” and “faggot” are so commonly used as insults these days, it’s really hard to remember a time when they weren’t. 2, So please, knock it off. 3. learn more at thinkB4youspeak.com
This is a Short Film called “Hetero”. What if the roles were reversed? What if being homosexual was normal and being hetrosexual was not? I think everyone should take a few minutes to watch this. It’s inspiring and very moving, it even made me cry at the end.
An interesting take on the situation!
I’ve stopped saying that things are gay. I never really said it much to start with, but I just feel like it’s really mean and horrible now.
A Gay Former N.B.A. Player Responds to Kobe Bryant by John Amaechi
Kobe Bryant called a referee who penalized him at a recent game “faggot.” He was fined $100,000 by the NBA and since apologized for the slur, but now he’s fighting the fine. Kobe says he “he was frustrated in the heat of a game,” and didn’t mean it to be interpreted as a slur.
John Amaechi, a former NBA player an since openly gay man, has written a lovely editorial for The New York Times on the matter. He eloquently says, “When someone with the status of Kobe Bryant…hurls that antigay slur at a referee or anyone else…he is telling boys, men and anyone watching that when you are frustrated, when you are as angry as can be, the best way to demean and denigrate a person, even one in a position of power, is to make it clear that you think he is not a real man, but something less.”
I couldn’t word it any perfectly myself, John Amaechi.
