I’ve seen some critiques of Dan Savage’s It Gets Better project. Most of them center around the fact that it often does not get better. This is especially true for trans folk. Defenses have been made that emphasize the project’s intention to address the emotions of someone in a moment of despair. Here’s a very fine (but certainly not infallible) mind, taking it apart without tearing it down.

Nicely done, Auntie.
