A Douchebag

I saw it the other day and meant to post it then but forgot. Then my friend Tim posted it on Facebook today. You have to watch this video; George Takei's hilarious response to anti-gay bully Clint McCance, former Arkansas school board member who called for more gays teens to kill themselves. I haven't heard the term "Douchebag" used very often anymore but it really seems to be fitting.


It does get better.

If you are worried about a friend or family member

Need help? In the U.S., call 1-800-273-8255
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

Often times, a suicidal person may indicate in some way that they plan to attempt suicide. Here are some warning signs you should know about.
Warning Signs:

* Increased Isolation – From family and friends
* Alcohol or Drug Use Increases
* Expression of negative attitude toward self
* Expression of hopelessness or helplessness
* Change in Regular Behavior
* Loss of interest in usual activities
* Giving away valued possessions
* Expression of a lack of future orientation (i.e. "It won't matter soon anyway")
* Expressing Suicidal Feelings
* Signs of Depression
* Describes a Specific Plan for Suicide
* History of Suicide in the Family
* A person who has been extremely depressed in the past may be at an increased risk for suicide if the depression begins to cease, as they may now have the psychological energy to follow through on a suicidal ideation.

If you or someone you care about displays any of these warning signs, please do not hesitate to call The Trevor Lifeline at: 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386) to speak with a trained volunteer counselor.
