More Than a Little Sobering: (from The Advocate) Sorry to get superserious, because I know today has been all about #DADT and #!, but this is a, uh, pretty compelling video. This is a reminder that We've got a lot of work still ahead of Us, y'all - there are no days off. There was a frenzy of support when these suicides occurred a couple months ago, let's not forget about them. [Rant on the tendency for the Movement to treat issues like fads deleted for now.]
So obviously the school and admin really screwed up here. But would a reprimand have solved things? Even a little? Would it have maybe even made things worse? What's the most effective and realistic way of combatting bullying in schools?
