I love how this post ends. I actually disagree with AC about the word gay. I suppose it is because I live in a fairly liberal community and am surrounded by a liberal world in my choice of television, movies, friends, etc. I have family, friends, coworkers, etc. who are gay and in no way is gay used in a derogative manner.

So, if I take anything away from this article, it will be the final conclusion of this blogger…the theme of the video of that little girl in the mirror…practice positive self-talk =)

Anyway, it caught my eye when internet stories started to bubble last week about Cooper’s reaction to the derogatory … Read More
