Spirit Day  
Originally posted by neo_prodigy at Spirit Day

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.

The Iron Age is no reason to hurt kids
The heartbreak these kids go through with families who don't accept them and a society that is afraid of them is truly gut-wrenching. The idea that ancient iron-age words on crumbling pieces of parchment are used to justify the hatred is just as appalling.

Until we throw off the shackles of iron age religion, I'm afraid this terror will go on.
