HomeTVThe Young and The RestlessY&R’s Thom Bierdz Releases You Tube Video Encouraging Gay Teens Jamey Giddens October 7, 2010 The Young and The Restless 6 Comments Thom Bierdz (Phillip, The Young and the Restless) has joined the fight against the bullying of gay teenagers by releasing the You Tube clip below. In the MVID, Bierdz reveals how painting helps him deal with the anxieties that gay people can face. He also talked about the American Art Awards, which he helped found, which will be offering a free entry this year for teens. Would that we had writers in daytime right now like Agnes Nixon, who would address the awful prevalence of gay teen suicides in soap opera storylines.

Cuz we have to “give them hope” if you know what I mean.

Some how it needs to be regulated or shut down. George Orwell was right, but we are big brother. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott October 7, 2010 Absolutely Henry. I am SO GLAD I am not in high school right now. All this cyber-bullying crap is out of control.

Log in to Reply Judge Tom October 8, 2010 After 23 years in juvenile court, I believe that teenagers often learn from the experiences of their peers, not just from being lectured by those in authority. Consequently, “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” was published in January, 2010. Endorsed by Dr. Phil on April 8, 2010 ["Bullied to Death" show], “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” presents real cases of teens in trouble over their online and cell phone activities. Civil & criminal sanctions have been imposed on teens over their emails, blogs, text and IM messages, Facebook entries and more. TCI is interactive and promotes education & awareness so that our youth will begin to “Think B4 U Click.” Thanks for looking at “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” on http://www.freespirit.com [publisher] or on http://www.askthejudge.info [a free website for & about teens and the law]. Respectfully, -Judge Tom. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
