Dan Savage Offends Some Christian Teens

Filed under: Gay Gay GayEtc.PolitikPerezTV

UGH.

Dan Savage, writer and creator of the It Get's Better campaign, encountered a walkout during his speech at the National High School Journalist Conference in Seattle, when he said, "We can learn to ignore the bull—t in the Bible about gay people."

Knowing Savage as we do, we know he wasn't saying Christianity was bullish** or that religion in general is bullish**. He was merely pointing out that certain aspects of the Bible are outdated and simply wrong — specifically anti-gay sentiments — which makeup perhaps .00009% of the text.

Dan Savage Explains Why Kids Need To Know 'It Gets Better'

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationYouTube

Why is it so important for gay teenagers to hear stories from gay adults?

To save lives!

The harsh reality of today's society is that LGBT teens are bullied, teased, and made outsiders because of something as insignificant as sexual orientation.

Unfortunately, it took a string of sad, sad suicides to bring attention to this reality, but these tragedies finally encouraged people like Dan Savage and his husband Terry to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Since the media spotlight on LGBT teen suicides, the "It Gets Better" campaign has been using the internet as a medium for gay adults to share their own experiences with gay teenagers in hopes of preventing anymore unnecessary deaths.

Watch the video above to see sex columnist Dan Savage explain why kids NEED TO KNOW that it gets better and how the internet can save lives.
