For GLBT teens

Dan Savage has launched the It Gets Better Project. It’s a growing collection of videos directed at isolated, despairing GLBT teenagers to let them know that it will really get better. Go add one if you like. Or pass it on to someone who might want to. Or who needs to see it. And remember its existence in case you meet someone who does.

Looking for some critical thinking exercises?

Try having your students spot the problems in this article by Christina Hoff-Summers. As Igor, who sent it to us notes:

Maybe the best point is when the author criticizes not taking variables like education into account when computing the gender gap, and then proceeds to cite a result that urban young women make slightly more dough than their counterpart men due to higher average education level [as evidence that women now have it better than men]
