The It Gets Worse Project

Christina here…

You’ve heard of the It Gets Better Project, the project created by Dan Savage:

The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.

Of course, as a supporter of rights for everyone regardless of sexual orientation or sexuality or gender, I support this project.

Not everyone does.  Enter the It Gets Worse Project.

 

The It Gets Worse Project isn’t really much of a project. Instead, it’s more like a series of blog posts, but regardless, here is their mission:

Jett & Jahn Media has decided we need a response to Savage’s “It Gets Better” Project.

We have created the “It Gets Worse” Project, to educate young people about the negative consequences of the homosexual lifestyle.

We encourage viewers to join our campaign by uploading your own “It Gets Worse” video to Youtube and linking to our website.

Among other things, the It Gets Worse project alleges that Matthew Shepherd was killed “after he sexually harassed Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson.” (emphasis theirs)

Jett & Jahn media also claim they have been reading scientific articles, and have found:

Scientific studies show:

They typically don’t have faithful, monogamous relationships
They are more likely to be abused by their partner
They have higher rates of STD’s (including HIV/AIDS)
They are physically unable to conceive children
If they do adopt, their child grows up without a mother or father

References? I think not.

They also support assault and bullying (emphasis theirs, red text mine.):

Romney allegedly bullied John Lauber, a gay student with long blonde hair. Romney yelled, “He can’t look like that. That’s wrong. Just look at him!

A few days later, Romney recruited  a mob to help him cut Lauber’s hair.

They found Lauber in a room, tackled him, and pinned him to the ground. Lauber started crying and screamed for help.

Romney took out scissors and snipped off Lauber’s hair.

Then he led the mob back to his room in Stevens Hall and they celebrated.

Romney also mocked homosexuals in the classroom.

He shouted “Atta girl!” whenever homosexual student Gary Hummel spoke in English class.

Jett & Jahn Media supports Mitt Romney’s courage to stand up against homosexuality.

They have a Twitter: @@No_ItGetsWorse.

Humanity. Doing it wrong.
