    Link: An Alternate Perspective - This is extremely well done, and kind of soul-destroying. Grab your tissues.

    Does a good job of showing how stupid anti-LGBT people are. But then, we already know they`re a bunch of a$$holes anyway.

    All men- which we construe to mean people- are created equal; Why is this even an issue anymore? Just shameful.

    @MeGrendel, I can only hope you go through something like that one day and then maybe you`ll understand; and `alternate bull`? Are you actually trying to say that the other side of this issue isn`t bull?
    Wow.

    I have to wonder just what kind of a hard, cold-hearted, unfeeling son of a bitch you have to be to not be moved by this well-done short film.

    Wendypants-"wonder just what kind of a hard, cold-hearted, unfeeling son of a bitch you have to be"

    A hard, cold-hearted, unfeeling son of a bitch that realizes that, no matter how `pretty` you make it, propaganda is still propaganda.

    `Triumph of the Will` was well done, too.

    This is the real world. Mommy and Mommy do not create a daughter. Daddy and Daddy do not create a son.

    This propaganda does not even remotely reflect reality.

    I don`t care how `well done` it is, it`s still malarky.

    Doesn`t matter how pretty of a bow you put on a box of horse manure, it`s still horsepoo.

    But hey, it`s a whole new world, where if you come out as being gay, or so premiscous you expect your college to pay for your birth control, you get a call from the White House telling you how `brave` you are.

    @MeGrendel: No! Science is done "by committee" now. The most popular answer is now a fact!
    Thus Daddy CAN make a baby with another Daddy.
    How? It doesn`t matter! It is now the PC Correct Fact!
    Burn the heretic!!

    I haven`t bothered to watch this... I was worried it was about abortion.

    19 minutes? Oooo this had better be good! At least better than the "10 Things America" piece of crapola was... @patchouly!!

    2:00 Wait, I thought we were "born that way"? How did this girl LEARN to be a heterosexual?

    @Wendypants: "I hope something terrible happens to you" is not a valid form of argument... but all too common when discussing homosexuality... and NOT from the "conservatives"...

    Ugh! It`s a "paper tiger" story! Ick!

    I grew up across the street from a lesbian--knew her before we were in kindergarten.

    She always identified as male. ALWAYS. For her 5th birthday, my mother bought her a frilly pink dress. She hated it. Refused to wear it.

    5 years old! Before puberty. Hormones. Media Sexualization (it was the early 80s)

    The point: You don`t choose to be gay.
    Absolutely NOT.

    The teasing? Bullying? Being beat-up? I knew a gay dude who was RAPED once. As he told me the story with tears in his eyes..
    "Why would anyone choose this?"

    Just like you don`t choose to be black. Hispanic. White. Asian.

    A bigot is a bigot--and 90% are never shy about it--especially posting anonymously on a forum.

    This isn`t about propaganda, MeGrendel, you dick. It`s about trying to push past other people`s ignorance--obviously some people you just can`t reach, and never will.

    rickwhite-"She always identified as male. ALWAYS. For her 5th birthday, my mother bought her a frilly pink dress. She hated it."

    Yes, there`s a term for it. `Tomboy`. I knew just such a girl. Wanted to go hunting and all the fun stuff the boys did.

    Now she like girl things.

    Had she turned out to be gay, I wouldn`t love her any less.

    rickwhite-"This isn`t about propaganda,"

    No, this film isn`t ABOUT propaganda. It IS propaganda.

    rickwhite-"It`s about trying to push past other people`s ignorance"

    No, it`s trying to push an agenda by making it `pretty` and `emotional`.

    I don`t care if anyone is gay, straight, bi, trans or what.

    I DO care when you use false propaganda. This is a perfect example of `real life` not fitting your agenda, so let`s make it emotional.

    And all I could think was "Wow, I can`t believe such a little girl can have such powerful deep feelings that makes her end her life"

    and yet it happens every day :(

    Hmmmm... What if all couples were gay and that was the norm and heterosexuals were picked on and called breeders... BUT everyone was hetero during breeding season. That`s a big but. It`s not an accurate reversal.

    The hurdle with homosexuality is there is no need for it. Apart from that though, if this is what dumbasses need to see in order to stop them from beating up and bullying others, then so be it.

    Nice try, homo`s, but this would never happen because the human race would`ve long since died out through lack of breeding. It`s called nature. Stop trying to force your agenda.

    @rickwhite, thanks, that was perfectly written. I shouldn`t be surprised when I come across such people, and yet I still am.
    @MeGrendel, I`m sorry that you don`t seem to understand the point of the video isn`t propaganda but to show that bullying for ANY REASON - but in this case especially something so spurious as sexual orientation - is horrible. That`s it. It makes me sad that your reaction is that it`s bullpoo.

    it is well done, but flipped or not its just foreign to me.

    maybe it was growing up with tolerance and diversity in a big city...

    seeing this as such a big deal makes it hard not to think "oh the stupid fat and part redneck americans again, cant we get rid of this high concentration of ignorance for good?"

    it makes me sorry for the rest stuck among all the hate, but given the choice it would take some serious convincing against wiping the place out.

    Wendypants-"the video isn`t propaganda"

    Actually, it`s exactly propaganda.

    Wendypants-"but to show that bullying for ANY REASON"

    See, that entire lesson is totally lost in the noise of the obvious propaganda.

    Bullying, FOR ANY REASON, is wrong.

    And yet Bullying, FOR ANY REASON, exists.

    You will get bullied for your sexual orientation, age, shape, color, religion, teeth, hair, ears, nose, eyes, voice, etc...you name it, you will get bullied over it.

    It`s wrong, but it`s the reality we live with. You either learn to deal with it, or not. And at the same time do our best to eliminate it.

    And no, being bullied for your sexual orientation is not worse than being bullied for any other reason. I don`t care if you call it `hate crime` or what.

    It`s like some dimlib`s wet dream. A pretty disturbing look into a disturbed mind.
