It’s cute, but might backfire if it’s supposed to convince straight people.  You don’t actually have to drop the f-bomb to be gay.  😉

Yikes…I appreciate the message but honestly I think it trivializes the issue. It’s so important to spread the message of equal rights for ALL…but this misses the mark for me.

I was also pretty horrified that they have children swearing. I mean…I know kids swear or at least know what they are. But I find it manipulative that they used it for a video.

There are more effective ways of getting the message across.

I’m usually not one for using profanity when it’s not necessary, though something about this really resonated with me. 

I have to say that, out of all the “hot button” issues, gay marriage is one of the issues I feel the most passionate and like, why is this still an issue.  I understand the high level of anger in the issue (how could there not be?  Legally being prevented from marrying the person you love).  And I think the use of intense language can convey the urgency and and anger of the need. 

So, yeah I liked that video, and I hope that if at all possible, it can bring more awareness to the issue.

I think the video is fine because really, it’s preaching to the converted and I think it’s designed to fire up the base. Anti-gay marriage people or people on the fence might want to hear the arguments, but they’re not going to buy the t-shirt.

I wasn’t offended but I’m pretty lax about expletives etc.

I totally support the cause, I think marriage should be about love, not opposing genitalia.

But I think you damage your own cause when you get kids to swear on international TV (YouTube etc).  Pretty inappropriate I think.  And that’s coming from me, who swears like a sailor!!!

Even watching it twice, I didn’t really listen to the message cos I was shocked at the kids swearing.

I’m gay and I’m a teacher.  I think it’s an awesome video.  For me, it voices my frustration, and the frustrations of thousands of other normal people who happen to be LGBT.  That includes LGBT kids, who IMO face things far worse and more worrying than cursing.  They face harassment, injustice, and emotional torture at the hands of other kids, and adults.  Adults  – even their own families and teachers.  When I was a gay kid, I wanted to scream F*%$ HATE, too!  I just wanted to be “normal”.  Now with so many voices raised in frustration as well as hope, I know I am normal.
