    MY partizan hackery?

    thats a joke.

    You just said in a thread that you see no reason why you can't believe in a republican candidate even though they are anti gay because they may be prolife and things like that.

    then you just said the exact opposite here in the case of mr Quinto. You expect him to be out and perfectly gay or he isn't a good role model.

    what a laugh

    that's not the kind of message that I'd want to send to a gay kid; I think I'd rather hear silence than hear that.
    You might might know more about Hollywood than I do, but I wouldn't call it the most liberal industry in the world. If it were, I think more actors would be out.

    I'd think of fashion as the most gay-friendly industry in the world, but that's more a guess than something backed up by evidence.

    You hurt my feelings

    you have a double standard and a convenient one. there is no proof that Quinto is gay. Alot of rumor but nothing more.

    Ever thought about that fact that just living as a HUMAN BEING is helping? He's not some evil fag sitting in his home watching gay people die and keeping his mouth shut.

    He's never been shy about speaking on behalf of the community. Just because he's never once pulled an all out media blitz on his sexuality does not make him any less relevant.

    Thanks for explaining it. You said a lot of what I was trying to say, but I wasn't totally sure of the specifics.

    Most of the kids that have been affected by bullying all said the same thing - nobody did anything. The more people who speak up an say they get it, the more these kids will understand they do have allies.
    I agree they need people that get them and they need people that will speak up. I think part of the issue is defining what "get it" means. Does it mean getting what it feels like to be bullied or does it mean just getting what it feels like to be bullied for being gay or does it mean getting that bullying is wrong.

    I still would like some evidence that ZQ is gay, but so far no one has come up with anything.

    Re: Zachary Quinto's "It Gets Better" video

    Stacy I think everyone here agrees that any voice helping out is valid.
    I just think that the It gets better has to be defined in some way unless it is obvious (ie the speaker is out and gay).

    If it becomes a soundbit for everyone saying it. It isnt going to mean anything......

    If you want to say as I victim of bullying I can tell you it will get better ---- > great

    we are going to make sure this gets better ---> regarding fighting for LGBT rights and anti bullying ----> great

    But for some random celebrity to say it is going to get better is confusing and doesnt mean anything

    There is not one thing to "get." There are many. Even if we are only speaking of the LGBTQ community, each person is struggling with a different issue.

    Each new voice may be reaching out to just that one person who needed to hear that one word from that person.

    There is not one thing there are a whole bunch of things. And everyone in their life has said "yes but I'm so different!"
    I think being bullied for being gay is different than being bullied for being fat, which is different than being bullied for being Muslim. Among each group though, I would expect to find some commonalities. I think if I'd seen a video with an out, gay guy, it would resonate better for me than if a straight guy did it.

    Wow


    So it is not even good enough that he is on the verge of tears.




    Would him coming out help? Sure.

    It is not his job to come out of the closet, it's not his job to make it easier for teenagers, tweens, young adults

    But he took a step and made this video


    I will not ask for more


    Because so many people have done so much less.

    Yeah but Stacey can you tell me what stuff ZQ has had to deal with? because he certainly didnt say... that isnt relating to anyone?

    Ok. I'm sorry that I missed the part about what you were referring to.

    But to say you are with us and keep it vague, just seems like it's not as helpful as it could be because it's not as relatable. I'm not talking about you in this instance, but ZQ.

    I guess we are talking about degrees of helpfulness, which may not (ironically) be all that helpful.

    >>>Doesn't matter for this whether he is gay or not, whether he is out or not. What matters is that he is showing that he gets it, and he cares.

    When did this start?

    Nothing is more important than getting this guy out of the closet. Why? So we can cross him off the list, stop caring about him (Neil Patrick who?) and start focusing on other would-be-gay famous people. And let's not let this "kids committing suicide" thing detract from the real issue, now, shall we?

    My point is, everyone's level of need is different. And if we go into further detail about our lives, someone who is going through something entirely different will just simply shut off and say "damn, they don't know what I am going through after all."

    Just knowing that SOMEONE is out there reaching out is sometimes enough. Should others stop going further? No. But I am of the belief that even a small help is help needed.
    I think that makes sense. Some people will need detailed reasons, while others will not. As long both are out there, I think the maximum amount of help wil be given out.

    Agreed.

    Someone here might prefer Quinto to be silent. But some gay kid somewhere who loved him in Star Trek might take some inspiration or comfort in him speaking up.

    This is about a message of hope, which will always be dissatisfying to pathological cynics.

    Re: Zachary Quinto's "It Gets Better" video

    It's been a great hope of the gay community that straight people will come to our deffence. Annie Lennox came out as HIV positive, even though she admitted later that she wasn't. She said that she felt the pain and loss of the disease because so many of her gay friends had died of the illness.

    But we have this habit of saying they are gay if they are supportive, and that tends to scare the straight men that really ARE supportive of the gay community from being as helpful as they could be.

    I saw him in person 9/26/10 and he is not hot.. People look so mch better on TV for some reason.. I mean, He wasn't gross but I wouldnt call him hot.. Just a normal looking dude walking down the street in Hells Kitchen, NYC.

    Loved him as Sassan, loved to hate him as Sylar and loved him again as Spock. His It Gets Better vid gives me yet another reason to love him.

    We are still a minority and we need EVERYONE on our side.

    Wed should be thanking the motherfucker.
    I am not being picky about the people who are standing up for us.. I applaud anyone who will, like I said above to stacy I just want this to be better executed. If everyone is promising these kids it will get better without any similar thread of thought or explanation it just doesnt really make sense and i think it will detract from the potential

    You make an excellent point about small steps. I am gay, I don't have kids, nor do I have a platform where I can try to help people.

    But what I CAN do is be out as gay to my family (and not obnoxious about it or overbearing) and my nieces and nephews just see that being gay doesn't equate to being a monster or a sinner. It's not quite the same thing as a public figure coming out on the cover of a magazine, but I sincerely hope it will have those kids thinking twice before they try to bully someone for being different. And if they do and I find out about it, well, that will be one less present they will be getting at their birthday. If all else fails, money works.

    You don't have to run the campaign to do something to help gay kids. You could start your own campaign, or do something else.

    I've had discussions with my parents and have posted things about this issue on my Facebook wall.

    I think he raises a legitimate question. The message for this campaign should be more clear. Why do things get better? I think that would help at least some people out more than the campaign is currently doing.

    Re: Zachary Quinto's "It Gets Better" video

    we all need to do some volunteer work for our local gay community centers.

    talking online is not enough.

    it didn't save Tyler. He needed a real person at his university to be in his corner for him and apparently there was no one there.

    That can't go on. IF you have dealt with coming out, then you are old enough to offer advice and be a role model. It doesn't mean you have to be June Cleaver, it just means you have to show that you are out and strong.... that you made it through the hard part and became stronger for the self awareness.

    Mr Quinto's video is an outreach that many many people will hear. Most of us normal people do not have the tool of fame.

    we just have to do it one to one, one on one.

    i dont think it should matter whether he is gay or straight, closeted or not. as others in this thread have said, he's standing up for us, and trying to reach out. any message that encourages people to find help if they need it should be a step in the right direction, no matter what is taken from the context, if there is any hidden message at all.

    Well I'm sure that's very helpful to the thousands of gay kids who feel isolated and hopeless.

    For people who think this campaign isn't helpful, there is a solution: do it better. Of course it's easier to do nothing but bitch about others than to actually do something.

    I would too, but that doesn't mean Mercury gets to try and stifle questions either with his own question.
    I don't have the power to stifle anyone here. I asked a question. If anyone's answer stifles them, that's on them, not me.

    I do what I can. I'm sure you are affecting thousands of teens and are at the heart of The Trevor Project.

    Unless you have the money to do it better, even if you do it better, you aren't going to hit the same amount of people. If you'd like to give me a million dollars, I'll come up with a better campaign.

    You just say "What have you done?" in hopes that people will be shamed into a non-response due to some sort of guilt. That won't work with me.

    Oh and stacyp, when I was a kid, I actually had an attention span. I'm sure there are kids out there with attention spans now as well. I think we should have short messages and long messages, but you seem to think there should only be short ones.

    There are many ways to help. The Trevor Project isn't the only way, nor is the It Gets Better project. In fact I do do something, but I'm not sure of its relevance here because I'm not the one complaining about people trying to help gay kids.

    Unless you have the money to do it better, even if you do it better, you aren't going to hit the same amount of people. If you'd like to give me a million dollars, I'll come up with a better campaign.
    So is it more productive to bitch about those who do something while doing nothing?

    You don't need a million $ to start or contribute to a grass roots project. The projects you're talking about didn't start with a million $ either. They started with people willing to walk the talk.

    In fact the Trevor Project, which was founded in 1998 only now - 12 years later - has a budget of about $1 million. Had its founders sat around saying "Oh no I can't do anything until someone hands me a million dollars" it never would have become what it is now.

    You just say "What have you done?" in hopes that people will be shamed into a non-response due to some sort of guilt. That won't work with me.
    Your projections are yours, not mine. I'm asking those doing the bitching what they are doing to make things better themselves. I await answers.

    I agree with the sentiment of the OP, and I think self-analysis is healthy. It doesn't hurt to sit back and ask: "is what's being done really effective?" If you have these conversations, it might help refine the message and make advocacy more effective.

    But I also find myself agreeing with stacy - a circular firing squad doesn't do a lot of good, and anyone making any effort to help should be praised and not spurned.

    This is one of those things that will just come down to individual perspective and personal preference, in the end.
    I think evaluating and refinement are good. I also think detailed stories based on gay experiences are worth hearing as are short messages that are supportive in a general way.

    for what it's worth, I've donated money to multiple organizations like hrc and the trevor project and, back when I was actually writing, wrote an article for my college's magazine to share my own personal experience with homophobia.
    If you still have it you ought to post it and share it with us. That is the kind of thread the young guys that are still in the closet need to read here to help them figure it out.

    we don't have to have the answers, but we have to start having the conversation, or they will keep dying, and thats just unnaceptable for all of us.

    I've said that you're a fangirl - silly and ignorant person who doesn't have any proof that someone is straight, but demands proof of gayness because saying or believing that someone is gay is an insult, bad thing.

    Thanks for confirming that I was right.

    Re: Zachary Quinto is so fucking Hot

    I like men with dark hair - so yes, I find him really hot. And his voice - like WOW - I always imagine him talking in to my ear in that quiet but intense voice - in bed, with him on top of me....

    Love that 'It gets better' vid - he sounds like he really does care about what he is saying. Not just a celebrity doing it for good publicity or because he thinks he should.
    I hope I haven't affended anyone by saying that - I know it is a sad and tragic subject matter.

    He's doing something to help gay kids who are profoundly vulnerable. That's a good thing. A very good thing.

    It's hard to understand why someone doing that can't just be commended for actually doing it, and leave it there.

    even if every closeted actor came out, do you think it would really help? I mean check out the tabloids - they are full of gay rumors.

    we've heard them all,we know the names and I don't think they would shock John Q Public. people comming out in their families, their communities (especially teachers) now that could make a difference.

    making videos, and directing kids to the Trevor project or other hotlines is a great idea, cause it gives the kid someone to talk to. troubled kids don't need a celebrity spread in People Mag to reaffirm their choices. Their alone and need flesh and blood compassion.

    You think that hiding in the closet, bearding and sending "it is better to be straight" message to the world is the same as living out and proud???

    The more people who are out, the better. I don't think there's a real argument against that.

    Regarding this particular issue, I'm glad people are doing something good, whoever they are and whatever their orientation - confirmed or speculated. The lives of the kids who may be saved or comforted are real, and not just ideological abstractions.

    do I think that announcing to the world that your marriage(s) was a sham, and your kids just a convenience would make you a good example? no, you would be revealed as a liar.

    I admire Scott Evans - who is out, and committed to the equal rights. It will be interesting to see how far up the entertainment food chain he is able to go. But funny, even here on JUB, it's his straight brother Chris that attracts attention.

    it's easy to say "come out come out" when your pay check isn't dependent on mass appeal. Look what happened to the guy who played George on Grey's Anatomy. Did anyone offer him a new series? A movie? He's on Broadway right now, and I think that's how that industry works.

    it's a business, and if you were offered say, $100,000 a week over 5 years, would you be so certain? Think about it.

    why would a confessed liar be a positive example for young people?

    and what about your duty as a parent? "Oh by the way, kids, I married your Mom for positive publicity. I like her, but hey, but I have great sex with extras on the film lot"

    I know it's hard to imagine, but celebrities are people, with real life responsibilities. And if you have kids, that ought to come first.

    the ideal would be like I said, Scott Evans. come out early, before you enter the publicity machine.

    Telling the truth is better than living a lie, so yes that would be a great example for young people.

    Lying to your own kids can't be good for anyone. You can love them and be a good parent regardless of your sex life.
