Like probably 90% of American men, I don't actually own any items of purple clothing. Still, my thoughts are with the families of the kids who've taken their lives in the last couple months, and every kid who wakes up knowing that today is going to be hell. Again.

My work-based charitable contribution this year is going to Philadelphia's Attic Center: "The Attic creates opportunities for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth to develop into healthy, independent, civic-minded adults within a safe and supportive community, and promotes the acceptance of LGBTQ youth in society."

Stop the hate, and stop the bullying of every kid for every reason.

I just wish that any of the bullies that were the perpetrators actually read any of our posts.

I wish the kids being bullied took inspiration from your icon - "RAWR! I AM A SCARY NUCLEAR POWERED BEAR! F3AR MEH!"

I took this opportunity and the menswear sale at Macy's last weekend to buy a purple shirt and a tie (that also supports Breast Cancer research). We also bought "Bears Against Bullies" shirts, the proceeds for which will go to the Trevor Project.
