While there have been a couple of critiques of the It Gets Better videos on Bilerico Project, I've been amazed at how quickly some readers and other sites got all worked up when someone suggests that the messaging could have been better or the fact that some celebrities are doing it just for PR reasons. While I agree that it's a good project, I do think that the messaging could have been tweaked a little bit. What about those for whom it doesn't get better?
Over at Shakesville they have a long running comic strip called "Conniving & Sinister" where they re-imagine "the long-running comic "Frank & Ernest," about two old straight white guys "telling it like it is," as a fat feminist white woman and a biracial queerbait." They're generally pretty darn funny and Friday's version really nails the whole "What's missing from this upbeat PSA series?" question.
Check it out after the jump. And be sure to check out the complete archive of "Conniving & Sinister" strips too.
