We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

i came across this campaign and thought I'd share. I think it's simple but sends a strong message... because it's though movements like these that we might actually start getting rid of discrimination.

check the campaign video here: http://www.thinkb4youspeak.com/

it will be worth your while :)

have a great day everyone!

What an awesome campaign! Hopefully it'll help folks to examine other hurtful or negative phrases used every day.

i know. i'm guilty of saying it though...and i never thought even gave it a second thought... :|
I'm nearly 40 and it was quite a revelation for me recently when it came to my attention that teenagers (and beyond) still use being gay as some kind of ultimate insult. A few years ago I heard somebody on the street (college-age) call somebody else a "faggot" in a derogatory manner and I was really surprised but I'd assumed it was a fluke! I thought the times had changed enough but I guess kids are still kids...

Oh, by the way, it's not my intent to pick on teenagers or college-age folks. It's a weird time in a person's development and they're still trying to figure it all out (hell, so am I). I'm guilty of my own potentially-damaging speech.

well, the thing is, some people don't even realize it. like it isnt even their main intent to insult... my friends and I say "that's gay" all the time with gay replacing lame... didn't really give it much thought until i saw the campaign... X|
Yeah, you're absolutely right. It's just a matter of stepping back and thinking about how one's actions affect others (something I'm still trying to get a grasp on myself).
"that's so gay" always represented to me "that's so happy", because that's what my gay friends reminds me. i feel bad because it's a way of prejudice too - i'm labeling gay people. but at least it's in a positive way.

but i never in my fucking life used "gay" in a negative form. that's stupid!
