That's so me

Both Hilary Duff and Wanda Sykes are involved in a PSA campaign to stamp out the phrase "That's so gay." You know, when I was a teenager, the other kids didn't say "that's so gay." They just said, "you'd better run, faggot." So maybe we've just gotten more passive-aggressive. Either way, most queer, trans, and two-spirit youth experience some form of verbal of physical harassment in school. Some, like Lawrence King, don't survive to see High School. Let's make sure that queer kids make it to college, so they can become radical intellectuals, writers, and artists who try to change the world for the better.
