How Do Penguins Get In The Mood? Is Darren Criss Manscaping Too Much? Should Gay Kids Fight Back?

Time for the Queerty Week in Comments, with some of the most compelling, thought-provoking or just downright bitchy comments that came directly from you, the readers!

 

“Everybody has to make the decision for themselves whether or not they’re going to fight back against bullying or intimidation. When I was fourteen I told my parents that I wanted to study dance. “Okay,” my father agreed, but he also enrolled me in karate classes. And I got good. As the only guy who actually ever wore tights in my suburban high school, the karate and martial arts served me in good stead. Yes, there were a couple of fights. After all, ballet dancers are supposed to be easy marks. But people learned to leave me alone. I wasn’t popular, but they left me alone.

Now I teach martial arts, and when we had a gay community center here, I taught self-defense classes for gay kids and adults. You have to decide if you want to fight back, and then you have to learn how. Violence may not solve things in the long term, but it can often save your life – or someone else’s – in the immediate now.”
