I keep posting and taking down responses to the "It Gets Better" thing.

The whole mess has me really upset, and I can't seem to frame an appropriate reaction to it. I find the idea to be riddled in privilege and to me, it feels condescending and trite and it seems, at deeper inspection, to reinforce a status quo that is causing real pain and hardship and even a lot of death.

Then, I look at the videos and they are kinda inspiring to me... But, I'm 40 and mostly successful and safe... And then, I think to myself that maybe I am being jaded and bitter and wrong about this..

Still, I can't help but think we are building a better ramp, when we should just stop building stairs.
