Think before you speak: GLSEN (The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) deploys actress-singer Hilary Duff and Comedian Wanda Sykes to speak out on putting a stop to anti-gay speech
Better watch your tongues folks, you never know when a celeb may be stalking you as they play the role of well-needed purity troll. A new national PSA Campaign from GLSEN features actress Hilary Duff and Comedian Wanda Sykes encouraging the lazy-lipped to lay off the inadvertent trash talk which is homophobic, dehumanizing and nothing-but-damaging to the collective soul of the human race.
That's what we're talking about! Gays and straights, cats and dogs with joint-checking accounts, the United States and Iran engaging in diplomatic jawing -- oh so susty: bringing it all together in a mentally-emotionally-enviromentally-entertainingly way.
GLSEN is the organization that brought you the educational and awareness-raising initiatives such as Day of Silence, No Name Calling Week, ALLY WEEK and now ThinkB4YouSpeak the program associated with the Duff/Sykes PSAs.
BTW, Ally Week goes live again this Monday October 13-17, 2008. Allies generally are non-LGBT people who are committed to ending bias and discrimination against LGBT people and who support ending anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Get an Ally Week wristband to show your support.
Hilary Duff PSA video scenario
You're a teen-aged girl just going about your business in a store shopping for a new top that you call "so gay" when out pops Hillary Duff to give you a well-needed smack on the wrist:
When you say that's so gay, do you realize what you say? Knock it off.
That's so -- celebrity-stalkerish
