I've decided that I was, after-all, being wrong and and bit pig-headed about the whole "It Gets Better" thing. Not wrong in the sense that my concerns were not justified, they were and still are, but they are not enough to declare the whole she-bang a bad idea. I was reminded the other night that these PSA things are no longer the planned, produced, and static media messages of the past. Social media allows for evolving messages, and I was objecting to what amounted to the first sentence. Once viral, the messages are so diverse and legion as to answer everything in the end (or at least, everything I can think of). A friend sent me another one via email tonight I haven't yet seen, but apparently am going to love.

In the context of all of this diversity, even the objection to the first messages seems trite and those messages now are clear even to me to be wonderful, heartfelt, and needed. If you walkies think it's hard to get a foot out of your mouth, you should try a wheel.


I am thinking I may even make one.
