    Yes, another TED clip ;)

    This one deserves its own thread. I emailed the Trevor Project. I'm hoping that they will become a part of this project, if they are not already.

    LOL at the video comments! People hung up on the fact she said "shit"? Why yes, it's outrageous how vulgar this woman's speech is even though kids are sending texts about getting bullied and raped icon_rolleyes.gif

    3,000-4,000 texts a month, though? icon_eek.gif I didn't get text messaging on my phone till 2006 when I went to Russia and my parents wanted to stay in touch with me. Then I got unlimited texting two years later and never texted quite that much!

    Hm... definitely a mixed response from the audience it seems. I find it odd that when she illustrated the point of "that last one was real", does that mean her other examples were fake? How can you tell whether or not kids are trolling them? When they're that age they're real piss ants ya know...

    Bump, because we need a GOOD NEWS thread at the top of the list.
    This video was amazing. I hope the Trevor Project picks up on it. icon_biggrin.gif
