Being 6'4", Glee's Dot-Marie Jones knows a thing or two about bullying.
The actress experienced some hurtful words while growing up, which is why she's lending her star power to promote a new children's anti-bullying book, Just Like You.
"I grew really fast … seven inches in six months. Kids would say comments like, 'You're so tall, you should have been a man. Are you a man? Are you a woman?' It still strikes a nerve. Kids don't realize how powerful words are.
It doesn't matter what your differences are. You have to embrace what your likenesses are, and that we're all just like you."
Preach, sister! Great job on promoting a book with such a wonderful message. And to see the book trailer for Just Like You, click after the jump!
Check out the powerful video (above) of democratic Michigan Senator Gretchen Whitmer speaking out against the state's deplorable new bill, which allows bullying, as long as bullies can provide a "religious or moral reason for their actions."
Senator Whitmer said EVERYTHING we've been thinking, and we cannot thank her enough for getting vocal about this horrifying bill.
Something MUST be done about this! It is such a major step back for the state of Michigan AND for the fight against bullying as a whole!
