The Bravest Knight Who Ever Lived

A new children’s book from author Daniel Errico, The Bravest Knight Who Ever Lived is a classic fairy tale, but with a twist: the main character just happens to be gay. The story starts out conventionally enough. Cedric, a pumpkin farmer turned knight, is the hero of the tale.

From the producers’ website: “Compared to girls, research shows that boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives.

A School Day?

Kids are going to be kids
Bullying is a natural part of childhood
Bullied kids need to toughen up

These sorts of sentiments are all-too common when the topic of bullying is raised. As a society we often seem to tolerate behaviours and actions directed at children that we wouldn’t accept as adults. Or at least that’s the point that a new, and difficult to watch French advert is making. The video, found below, shows an office worker being tormented by his co-workers through the course of his day. The tagline at the end reads "A work day does not look like this. And a school day?"

While the ad isn’t LGBT specific, there are signs that queer youth in France have particularly been having a difficult time of late. The fight for marriage equality exposed a deep current of homophobia running through the culture of the nation, and France’s only homeless shelter for LGBT youth has seen a dramatic increase in calls, averaging over five hundred a month even now.

As powerful as this video is, and honestly the Gary Jules’ and Michael Andrews’ cover of "Mad World" could make kitten videos tragic, some people may take exception to the fundamental assumption on which it’s based. Too many of us know first-hand that bullying behaviour isn’t limited to children, and the experiences of the video’s protagonist are sadly familiar for many people.

So what do you think? Is this video a good way to show bullying in a context that will get adults’ attention? Does it do a disservice by erasing adults whose work environments are emotionally or physically abusive?

The Mind of an Ex-Gay Therapist

Stephen Fry interviews Dr. Joseph Nicolosi of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality. Nicolosi’s beliefs are so flatly pseudoscientific and Victorian (Homosexuality caused by parental neglect and emotional trauma, etc) that it’d be easy to make a fool of him–Fry, however, being Fry, lets him make a fool of himself.
