Perez Doesn't Wanna Be A Bully Anymore

You know I actually give him a lot of credit for this! Despite Perez being a champion for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth and encouraging people to stop bullying and be strong and have hope for things to get better, he failed to realize that he himself was a bully. Perez finally addressed all of this in a very honest and humble video today on his blog where he admits that he didn't see himself as a bully though he realizes now that his words came across strongly that way in thousands of posts. I actually have some respect for him now that I understand a little more why he was so judgemental and mean on his blog and the fact he is going to try to tone down his at times extremely vicious opinions of celebrities is more than anyone probably imagined he would do. Everyone has both felt the sting of being bullied by others and also the shame in bullying someone else. Everyone is guilty of being a victim and villain at one point or another in their lives. An we all need to try a little harder to follow the golden rule of treating others how we want to be treated. Props to Perez for being brave and humble enough to try and set a more positive example!
