I can’t think of a single thing to add to this:

Thank you, Ellen.

I am gay! It is OK to be gay. It is NOT okay to hate. Thank you Ellen.

That was one of the most impassioned and insightful calls to action that I’ve seen in a long time.

I LOVE this woman! Even though, had she had a meltdown over Larry, rather than the taking away of a little dog, it’s hard to say if this PSA isn’t a little anti climatic.
But, I believe firmly in the passion of Ellen, her love and understanding of where she’s from and who she speaks for.
Her mom is a friend of mine and Betty, her heart breaks BAD when ever something like this happens to a CHILD.
Betty is the godmother of gay foster children through the GLASS network.
Gay and lesbian adolescent social services.
Ellen has a powerful voice out there.
And more power to her.
Thanks Jim!

I am the mother of a gay son, I believe that parents have the responsibility to teach their children to accept and appreciate people for who they are. The parents in this case were not in tune with their sons hatred and that is SAD! These so called Christian religions that preach that “Gay” is a choice need to reach deep into their souls, they are SO WRONG and for that I am sad.One more thing there is a BIG difference between a pediophile and a gay person.People that are homophobic need to educate them selves before they open their mouths,this comment always makes me sick to hear as a mom of a gay son. PlEASE people STOP the HATRED!

Even as we think we’ve achieved so much, there’s ever a reminder that we also have so far to go. If not for us, for others.

Comfortable adulthood evaporates and our own earlier terrors return, at such times. I’m glad Ellen let those feelings be obvious.

Who would raise a hetrosexual man to be so weak that he could not tolerate, even appreciate at some level, a gay peer saying “I love you”?

The correct reply is “thank you”.

But, murder? A ruin of two lives.
