WATCH: Edna Jean Robinson Wants To Do “It Gets Better” One Better

Like us, Dallas drag queen Edna Jean Robinson is a fan of the “It Gets Better” campaign but thinks we need to do more to protect the next generation of LGBTs.

In this clip she calls on gays witnessing homophobic tirades to “grab your video cams and press record while pointing your finger at those hate-filled faces and saying, “You are a bully!” Then post that shit on the YouTubes or Vimeos. “Don’t want to wait for it to get better —or worse,” Edna Jean implores. “Make things better today.”

We hear that.

      It’s not getting better, children. Burp. The campaign’s creator, Mr. Dan Save-age, just proclaimed it over in his sex column, meanwhile, 19-year-old gay videomaker Eric Borges just killed himself. And he had also made a video saying “It Gets Better”.

      @Me-I agree. Dan Savage is and always has been a bully, not to mention he knows jack shit about human sexuality, gender, and sex that isn’t vanilla. He’s a media whore and fame whore who did the whole “It gets better” project just for a reality TV show on MTV.
