There is a reason that the quote by Don Marquis is on my sidebar. Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, is a prime exhibit of ideas not being responsible for the people who believe in them.

I have often really disliked Savage for his hypocrisy in regards to fat people — bullying gay people is wrong, bullying fat people is okay since it’s their own damn fault they’re fat, disregarding what a complicated issue weight really is — but mocking disabled people? That’s simply despicable.
