We're fans of the It Gets Better project started by Dan Savage to address bullying and reach out to lgbt teens.It's beautiful and well-intended, and I'm thankful it exists. But seriously, we all know it gets better a lot sooner if you are white, cisgendered, and middle class. And for a lot of us it stays pretty hard.
The righteous lesbian who made this video tells it like it is and leaves us feeling strong enough to fight anyway. Her message: It doesn't necessarily get easier but you grow up and learn to deal with things. You learn to shut out the negative messages. You learn to love yourself. You learn to survive and that hurting yourself just lets them win.
