Jennifer Tyler (Dec 06 2017 10:08AM) : Finding a place to belong means everything. It's so hard to connect with people who haven't been where you are. [Edited] more Tags: #jens4best

Being able to share your feelings with other people that understand is so important. If you can’t share than eventually those thoughts and feelings will start to eat you up inside. I’ve been there too.

Aurora Cullerton (Dec 02 2017 1:46PM) : I really wish it was easier for people who are transgender. When Emmy talks about the shame and guilt here I just feel so bad. It shouldn't be that society makes someone feel they should be someone they aren't. more

Truly their identity doesn’t affect you any more than maybe the pronouns they use. It isn’t fair for family,friends, coworkers, or strangers to tell someone they shouldn’t be allowed to be themselves and that they should feel guilty. These people aren’t hurting you, so why are you hurting them and trying to control their lives’. It is their body, their choice, their identity not societies or anyone else’s and they should be celebrated like everyone else.

I first off connect with this video, identifying as transgender. I have also experienced certain mental health related issues due to identifying as such. Therefore, this video I think will resonate with me personally.

[Edited] more Tags: 4bestleon

I think her giving advice and showing where she has come from, and where she is going is extremely important. It demonstrated that yes, she has had her struggles, but she is able to bounce back and obtain her dreams. It gives me hope, and I think would give others hope as well; that it does get better.

I think his vulnerability during this section is extremely powerful. It illustrates this more “macho man” occupation and this “macho man” exterior of the Lieutenant can still be scared and coming out was an experience that conflicted with his job and self.

I think this was important to show that, while there are areas of discrimination there are also places where people do not define you as your sexuality. After he came out in Orlando, his other co-officers said who cares, you’re a good cop. This is promising to see for me, being queer. You can still have the job you want and not have to live in fear or discrimination.

Many kids only have their family, they do not have many friends. A lot of kids who are gay and haven’t come out yet get bullied in school and to come home to the same treatment is terrible because where do they turn? A lot of the kids will turn to suicide because no one is in their corner.

This is significant because her story can inspire other people in her position to stand up to their oppressive parents. I can’t relate to this story as I’m straight and if I was gay my parents would still support me, they’re supportive of any productive things that I choose to be or do. But I know of lots of kids whose parents have turned them away and they’ve been devastated, so I hope this story reaches some of them.

I love that she smiles at the end and has created her own family of support, her friends. She now is able to say f-it, or I don’t care anymore. I am strong. While I had a supportive experience, I think this video provides a perspective for LGBT members who aren’t as fortunate in that their biological family accepts them. But, it points towards happiness when you form your own family.

Drama is so incredibly strong and I feel like a huge testament to how you have to accept and love yourself to be happy. Even though her mother still refuses her she can still be happy because she loves herself and who she is. I’m sure at first it felt impossible for her to survive, but she seems to have blossomed. I feel her story can/will help a lot of people who have unfortunately been refused by their family. For all of those people I how Drama’s story can help you come to realize that being who you are and loving that is what matters most. You can’t fake who you are through life and some people can’t accept that and that is okay because others will. <3

Aurora Cullerton (Dec 02 2017 2:13PM) : This statement is so true. Representation is so very important. People learn from what they see its only human nature. Until recently there hasn't been many positive representations in shows. The tropes usually kill off the LGBT individuals in the shows. more

I remember when I was little I had no idea LGBT people existed. I identify as pansexual and I feel like if I had seen at least one LGBT person in any media I would have had a much better sense of who I was early on. I just felt confused and wrong. With shows that are coming out now that representation is allowing for LGBT people to see, in a way, scripts and roles they can use to come out to people, or accept themselves. It can be really hard for someone but having any media that represents you can make it infinitely easier to recognize and work through and struggles you are having.

This is significant because most everyone, especially young and insecure people, need positive role models. They need to see people doing what they want to do and that it’s possible. Television isn’t necessarily the greatest place to get the inspiration to move forward, but seeing it in the mainstream normalizes it for them.

I find this significant because, as I stated, there are probably a lot of people who have faced similar scenes. Watching it play out in the media might be helpful to kids who have gone through it-for them to see that it isn’t unusual for this to happen and you can get through it.

This is significant because no one wants to think that they’re alone. Having a friend to try to help means so much! It’s significant in any of life’s situations. I can relate because I have a friend that would stand beside me in any situation I might find myself in. She stood with me at the front of the church during my brother’s funeral when I made a speech about him. I don’t remember what I said, but I do remember her hand on my back.

The emotion here is so very strong. The way this person’s mother says they don’t know who is sleeping in my daughter’s rooms could identify with so many parents and the response from this person’s friend could open so many people’s eyes. Just because someone is born different from how they identify doesn’t change who they are. Inside they are the same person they just look the way they feel. As a parent I know it can be hard, but this is your kid. If you are crying like they’ve died because of this then you know you love them. If you can open yourself to accept who they are you both can be happy. These parents are creating their own problems by not listening and trying to control their child’s life and body.

Long Live Jazz (Dec 10 2017 1:22PM) : This video was so genuine and I can tell she does not do this often, but she knew her voice needed to be heard. Positive outlets are rare, but she used her height and talents to tune out all noise. Making the best out of bad experiences is how you do it! [Edited]

I think it is very important that she covered bullying. The other videos did not, but that is a huge reason why people (in or not in the LGBT community) feel depressed or may want to take their own lives.

Long Live Jazz (Dec 10 2017 1:19PM) : I can only imagine how bad people discriminated against her. But as she said, SHE is living proof. It is okay to be different and she had to learn how to embrace that. I feel for her and I am so proud as if I know her. Tags: #4bestjb

Kiana Moon (Dec 05 2017 11:10PM) : Girls can be cruel when it comes to other girls being very different than the rest, especially in high school. If you're too tall, too short, too big, or too skinny, you most likely have been talked about sometime during your school life.

Jennifer Tyler (Dec 06 2017 11:40AM) : Encouraging people to have an outlet for their energy and frustrations is a great idea. Hopefully people are finding acceptance somewhere as well, but there will be frustrations everywhere. more

This is significant in that it’s great for people to have ideas about healthy ways to deal with stress. It connects to my life as I like to walk for exercise and stress relief, everyone should have healthy coping strategies.

Aurora Cullerton (Dec 02 2017 2:30PM) : I like that Brittney assures the viewer it gets better. Most people who seek out this video are those struggling and looking for an outlet or reassurance. Its really hard to believe things will heal in time.

Whitney Langston (Dec 05 2017 8:24AM) : I love that she said that. It is amazing to me how one person can make such a difference when it comes to bullying. Some people do not understand how it affects others! Everyone needs to know they are beautiful and unique!

Aurora Cullerton (Dec 02 2017 2:33PM) : This is such a nice direct message. Just be yourself it so important. If you spend your life trying to be who people want you will spend your like struggling. If you change because people make fun of you then you will feel so empty inside. more

Its hard to learn this lesson especially when you are young, but what matters in the end and what makes your life amazing is allowing yourself to be and love yourself.

Leo Norling (Nov 30 2017 6:45PM) : Brittany concludes similarly to Elliot. One should be themselves and that is perfect. more

I think Brittany was important to make a video. I wish it was a bit longer, that had a bit more of a transition from “I was bullied” to “it does get better”. Nonetheless, it is inspiring in the sense that Brittany is standing there and can talk about her experience tho.
