It's a Micro World after all is a blog dedicated to discussing pretty much whatever I feel like. When I delve into scientific matters it will primarily be discussing microbiology (agricultural, bioenergy, and environmental focus). Otherwise, I'll probably ramble on about sports and life.

Came across the following blog entry at the Big League Stew. It is about a PSA from the SF Giants, combatting homophobia. It's targetted to LGBT teens to let them know that life does get better beyond the bullying and to not turn to suicide. It is done in conjunction with the It Gets Better Project.
I'm sure there is a small portion of society that has not been bullied, or bullied. However, I think the majority have either experienced the shame of being bullied, or witnessed that shame when in the act of bullying. If you've gone through bullying, you'll know that no one else should have to experience such pain (emotional and physical), and if you have bullied, hopefully you've matured to the point that you are ashamed of your actions and would also like to prevent others from having to go through the torment of being bullied.
So, no matter what direction you are coming from on this issue, here is your chance to make a difference. Make the pledge, talk to your children, talk to your nieces and nephews, and talk to their friends ... to let them know that it gets better.
