To all the glbt people out there offended by the reaction of the debate audience tonight - it gets
better. I'm not a lesbian but I have been scapegoated in my life and it does get better. You have to take the long view at times. You have to be more realistic than other carefree people. But as you go through life after being attacked, and heal quite a bit, everything is better....you take nothing for granted...cause you have fought the good fight and won. It makes all of your relationships deeper and you will be a better judge of character so you'll live a richer life. And for those of you suffering from depression there is great help out there for you if you just get help. Don't do it alone: if you have depression, insomnia, memory loss because of the bullying...get thee to a doctor....they can literally erase that scapegoat feeling you bear if need be.

4. In their defense (and there's very little defensible about this) the entire audience didnt boo
It sounded like one or two assholes. The entire audience did, however, jump to their feet in applause when Rick Santorum started spewing bullshit.
