Short Film, Bob does not own the rights to this movie
Bob Says: You need to see and think of the deep meaning of this Short Film! Bullying is very bad even worse when it goes on being repeated without it being stopped! YOU can do your part in helping stop the bullying as these movie has shown, but there is something even bigger here!
v One of every four teens has reported being bullied. If you are attending Jr or Sr High School with say 250 students in that school, there are 50 teens in your school on average being bullied!
v One teen commits suicide every 100 minutes. That’s 432 a month or 5,184 teens a year! For each one who has committed suicide there were 10 attempts at suicide made by other teens or over 51 thousand teens had tried and thankfully lived!
§ In 2000, 174 children (0-18) in the United States died from unintentional firearm-related injuries. Unintentional injuries are usually caused when children play with guns or are hunting.
§ In 2003, there were a total of 42,643 traffic fatalities in the United States. The 0-14 age group accounted for 5 percent (2,136) of those traffic fatalities. In addition,
We hear more about the fewer deaths by auto accidents and firearms, and then we do about the alarming rate of Death by Bully or Suicide! We also know that most suicides and suicide attempts are made by LGBTQQ Teens! That may or may not be a reason why it is less publicized!
The Movie says “One Voice”, I say it doesn’t take a village (though it helps) to get bullyism to stop. It takes one voice (person) to say STOP when they witness a person, a victim being bullied. Bullies themselves use there bully tactics to deflect issues in their own lives most often! Generally you do not see the strong kid or athlete doing the bullying so talk to them get them help so as to put a stop to the need to be a bully! If that doesn’t stop the bully, then find a way to do this and stop the bully and help that victim!
v The Chronicle of Higher Education, study reported . Research has found the presence of gay-straight alliances (GSAs) in schools is associated with decreased suicide attempts. in a study of LGBTQ youth, ages 13–22, 16.9% of youth who attended schools with GSAs attempted suicide versus 33.1% of students who attended schools without GSAs.
Who has a voice? Schools with an active GSA program, Teachers, Principles, School District Administrations, Parents, People of religious belief that hate is a sin and they love thy neighbors, anyone and YOU!
Your voice can be the one that helps and when all the voices can be heard maybe then Bullying will be spoken in the past tense!
Bullies and their actions rob the victims of self-esteem one voice can help that too by friending him or her and help them see there self-worth!
Bob Says: When I was young (jew) I was taught that all the worlds main religions believe, “we are created in G-ds Image!” I have to say then the comment above is also as true and when it is how can you be taught to HATE a child of G-d?
When you can find no logical way or deflective way to answer me I will be here to listen! Meen while stop hating!
It’s official. I have seen EVERYTHING.
Live, love, be!
Bob Says: Yes even I can see wow I now have seen everything! Show the love show the pride as I say Mazel Tov (good luck)!
הראה את האהבה להראות את הגאווה שאני אומר מזל טוב!
Bob Says: As many areas around the world are or have been celabrating LGBTQQA (Gay) Pride, we should embrace this photo and its meaning!
As Waistbandboy above said this is LOVE and I defie anyone to say there is no place for this! It is Love not HATE that should be the commonplace in all the worlds persons no matter what they are inside or out!
Take your partner and show the love show your proud it is great to see!
Gay guys who hate on gay guys. Now that’s a topic that REALLY needs discussion. Where to start? It’s such a huge topic, and my little fingers can only type for so long before I start smashing at my keyboard and break something.
A few days ago I was accused of being one of those homosexuals that “are the reason all the other homosexuals get a bad reputation”. here’s the catch, it was said to me by a homosexual. The reason why they said it in this instance is almost irrelevant, because it was so incredibly miniscule. Now, I needed a moment to process what this person was actually saying to me. I, Jake, was part of a greater reason that gay men are discriminated against so heavily across the world. Well, that’s a pretty big accusation if you ask me.
I’m going to keep this short and simple. Yes, I can understand where you’re coming from Mr “Gay-Hating-Homo”, but let me say this: I am not the reason gays are discriminated against, you are. Hate spreads hate, and that’s the truth. I am a good person and I believe in being myself. If a girl can flap about a hot guy, so can I. If a guy can appreciate a hot girl, well I think it’s my prerogative to be able to do so as well (within respectful means). I don’t force my opinions upon anyone. You don’t see me gagging people with a rainbow flag for acceptance.
Let’s drag this back a little please. If the human race is to progress with homosexuality acceptance in society we need to look at the reasoning of why people express themselves the way they do. Discrimination is taught, homosexuality is not.
Bob Says: I have to agree with this person sharing their thoughts! Gay whom hates his/her own kind hates what they see in the mirror as far as sexuality is concerned! Because you absolutely fear being who you really are, you deflect this fear with words of HATE!
I also though only partially agree with this writer saying “A few days ago I was accused of being one of those homosexuals that “are the reason all the other homosexuals get a bad reputation”How can someone who is afraid to have the truth be told that they have gay sexual feelings say that those who are more at ease and acceptable with their own sexuality be blamed for such hate? There are many shades of Gay from the very effeminate to the most butch and it is fair to say that most Gay men and Women are hard to detect even with the best gaydar out there!
Hate beit from self-hating Gays or from the pulpit during Sunday Sermon’s, hate is a ruse a deflection from reality! Persons being hateful spend more time from there day more money from their pockets in an effort to mask their own sins and iniquities!
Do you want to educate and help the wave of change? Simple DO Not stand tow to tow in a shout fest, stay calm, stay on point and stay unnerved with calm statements of what we are, NOT what we are not!
I have said it before if all haters especially those who spend money to help them hate put that effort that cash into feeding the hungry we would have no hungry!
Tennessee Passes Bill Allowing Schools To Bully LGBT Students

Out & Equal Workplace Advocates | Workplace equality for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, characteristic or expression.
Bob Says: This an interesting page and it is also a strong resource for older LGBTQQA!
Homophobic language isn’t always meant to be hurtful, but how often do we use it without thinking?
Bob Says: As I keep saying words hurt! Hateful ones do even more damage!
Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski surprised, grateful for rave reviews, look forward to more
Bob Says: Now that the Olympics Games are over I felt I wanted to say some things about Skating NBC/Sochi Commentator’s Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir!
I like Skating and saw lots of it, when I first saw Tara and Johnny working together I did say to myself that Johnny was making a visual statement. Let it be known I am a butch gay (more manly like) guy so Johnny is on the other side of the line then I am! Yes I am okay with Johnny and his statements both as a gay man who happens to be flamboyant in his style and a past Olympian Medalist well qualified to speak about his sport! It also appeared that Tara was comfortable working with Johnny and as you saw more and more of the pair working together Tara started more and more to dress off Johnny again I am okay with this! I (Bob) do not dress with such bling or color but when you talk of a sport that has many a gay athlete in it as skating (Also seen by our women’s Ice Hockey teams) when we (LGBTQQA) need statements saying as a people we do not like the Anti-LGBTQQ statements and beliefs coming out of Russia Politico.
I approve of Johnnie’s idealistic statements even if not by spoken word! The one thing that many reading this article may not be aware that for the most part the actions and statements of our commentators were for mostly American audience’s only as other countries had their own networks and staff! So may likely do not know of such messages!
This has been a hard decision to make, but I wanted you to hear this from me. Subscribe to the channel here; http://goo.gl/zgBveC Website http://www.tomdaley.tv
Bob Says: I feel Tom Daley saying he is at least Bi and has a BF whom he loves and feels safe with is again a good thing for those in the LGBTQQA community. I love it when people of good positive notoriety of any sexuality let it be known that Love is cool no matter the sexuality of the lovers! I also know funny enough many a gay man who love the Tom Daley look are both happy that Tom likes men but sadden that Tom is Taken!
I as a Gay male who enjoys sports am happy for Tom as he represents a positive message for all of the LGBTQQA folks wether they are in sport or not. It puts faces on LGBTQQ persons show just how many we are and how quite normal we are as well!
Thanks for your statement Tom and best of luck for you in Life, Love and Sport!
For 1st time, gay rights get shoutout in inaugural speech
A NBC News review of past presidential inaugural speeches turned up no prior mentions of gays and lesbians, though Obama and former President Bill Clinton did note the struggle for gay rights — primarily the bid to serve openly in the military — in State of the Union speeches.
“Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well,” Obama
The president’s comments drew praise from LGBT rights groups and advocates.
One, columnist Dan Savage, commented on Obama’s grouping together of the key moments from the women’s rights, Civil Rights and gay rights movements: “Seneca Falls, Selma, Stonewall - thank you for that, Mr. President.”
President Obama has also cited gay rights in at least three State of the Union addresses making the mention of LGBTQ Equality a first ever in a inaugural speech!
Bob Says: I have long been a opponent to the false claims and promises made by all politicians in a attempt to secure votes and President Obama has also made some in his time.
Yesterday we as a nation (many of us) took some time to consider the work and commitment to equality by the late Dr. Martin Luther King. The President stayed with that theme when he referenced both the Historical meanings behind Seneca Falls and womens rights, Selma and MLK’s work for civil rights and The start of LGBTQQA Voices in search of equal rights in the Stonewall Riots! Three historical markers with the same equal rights concept as a goal. Proudly we can say both Women and Blacks have come a long way, yet if we are to be honest here it is still work in progress! LGBTQ Rights to Equality is still in the infancy of its needs and hopes to be fully realized and respected.
I hope in time that this constant pursuit of EQUAL rights for ALL can be as accepted as it is due us all.
Now Mr. President please take the courageousness of your speaking these words of hope to that of legislation in reality! You can do this!
side note: I also look forward to the day that all persons can happily and proudly announce to family and friends that they have some one they love and the sex, color and religion have the same respect and relevance as ones good health!
I was walking home around 11:30 and I decided to take a walk and get a hot chocolate blah blah I was walking over the overpass with my drink and I thought maybe I should just jump and just forget everyone because lets face it my life is pretty much a roller coaster of sad then happy etc.. but a thought occurred to Methat my life hasn’t been filled to the brim yet Im going have to deal with this all Iwill fill my life jar to its maximum capacity no matter whatIm not going to give up I will find that person that makesMe feel amazing if its a guy that I know or am going to meet I am going to be fine.
Bob Says: Henry I know you want love I know you want happiness and a reason to go on! First you are young and will want to figure out what the guy that shares your heart looks like feels like acts like etc.
I can help you I can also help you keep your cool and not feel desperate! Please don’t allow your self this pain to continue as things can and will get better!
Read my Blogs work you will see my work is done ll for YOU and the YOUs out there!
Bob Says: I feel this is a great statement however I’d ask you to extend this thought this way. All Parents, Ministers, Ultra Religious, Right leaning Politicians, Teachers, Principles and people who have hate in there heart should be aware that when they Mock, Curse our speak hatefully to or about Gay people they may be Mocking, Cursing our speak hatefully to or about their own child or the children of their friends and relatives!
It is not the way we as society should be! Find away to educate in a effort to lower and completely remove the hate and bigotry!
Bob Says: True love comes in all colors, religions, genders, political persuasion, ages and sexual preferences! God did not define what was love the living species on this earth did! Your Hate and Bigotry is your own doing and masks issues short comings YOU have!
Caring Love is Love
