NO on H8!
10 January 2009 | by SunflowersUnitySee all my reviews

I think it is great to have actors using their talents and tools to add to the many unheard voices, especially regarding Prop 8. Straight to the point, there is NO reason why these types of videos are bad or negative in any form. There are many gay and lesbian actors and actresses and why can't they and their friends/supporters of gay marriage make a video to get the cause heard by more.

I think its just very sad when first gay rights are restricted and denied and then to even worsen the stinging, there are such harsh criticisms of harmless and entertaining pieces such as this one.

Be sure to stick your heads further down in that hole if you think this is in any way wrong.
