Hilary Duff on CNN

Hilary Duff was interviewed by CNN recently about the ThinkB4YouSpeak campaign which encourages kids not to casually call things “gay”.

Hilary Duff says she got involved with the campaign because people are “not kind enough to each other,” and that kids should not have to fear going to school. Hilary says that calling things “gay” has become too casual, and she encourages us not to unintentionally hurt others by using the term.

Have you taken steps in your own life to stop calling things ‘gay’?

    I have stop calling things gay. People don’t know how hurtful that word is. The word “gay” can hurt people meantly and emotional. I’m happy that some one decided to make an ad for this campaign. They should just show this campaign over air in the US. This campaign should be shown world wide. Saying “gay” has became casual in our vocab today. Instead of saying the word “gay” another word should be put in place.
