    Gotta say, I'm getting pretty sick of the It Gets Better commercial from Google.

    Every time I see it, I get something in my eye and start to tear up. WTF lol

    Anybody else have the same reaction?

    In case you haven't seen it, it's excellent:

    Considering they could have made the commercial about anything and specifically chose this topic, I'm fine with the branding. icon_wink.gif

    The only thing about Google that makes me cry is how they're stealing our privacy.

    This ad does nothing for me. The one that gets me is when I hear "in the arms of an angel" playing on the humane society commercial. icon_cry.gif

    I remember seeing this awhile back ago. It's annoying that some people who don't support gays or even know what it's like to be gay are posting hate in the comments

    They didn't choose the topic as a random mistake icon_razz.gif Gay rights are a particularly hot thing to profit off nowadays.

    It does NOT get better for most people. This whole thing is just sick. Instead of lying to the children, Mr. Savage should be telling them how to deal, but then again, what should I expect from such a hateful, bullying, disgusting piece of filth like Dan Savage?

    I feel ads like this are helping to 1) reach out to the unaware gay in the back country that there is something better ahead and 2) bridge the gap of a gay straight binary, like once upon a time there were shows like will and grace and qaf, now we just have gay characters in most shows cohesively existing with heteros. That's a little bit of a tangent but it's what came to mind when u saw the OP

    How should they cope? I think bashing their bullies back might work.
    I hope the suicides have subsided since the project began.

    The "It Gets Better" project is a great thing. There are people out there who really need the support and love of others, even if it is strangers.
    So I love the Chrome add icon_smile.gif

    It absolutely got better for me. And my partner.

    The part that those ads are missing is that you have to work (just like anything else) to make it better.

    The videos are aimed at young people but they seriously helped me. I am very thankful to Dan Savage and many people who shared their stories.

    It's been a while since I've seen this one, without a doubt one of my favorite PSA's ever if not my favorite.
