Dixie Chicks: 'It Gets Better' Video

Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson of the Dixie Chicks, and more recently the Court Yard Hounds, speak out against bullying in support of the It Gets Better project.

Lots of celebrities have lent their support to the campaign after the recent suicides of multiple gay youth who were being bullied because of their orientation.

“If you are being bullied or teased for any reason, we want you to know that it does get better,” they said. “We can’t necessarily put ourselves in your shoes, but we do know from experience that being true to yourself and sticking to what your believe in and who you are, no matter what people say or think about you takes strength… we admire your strength and it does get better.”

    WOW. “We can’t necessarily put ourselves in your shoes…” I’m so glad they said that, all the videos so far always made the celebrity out to be a past victim, but they are being truly honest about not being the victim. I think people can relate more to them as you know their honesty is sincere, glad to see a new story to help those being bullied.

    I like that the problem of bullying is getting some publicity, but people who bully don’t care what the Dixie Chicks or anyone else has to say about it. Like most PSAs, they mainly help the celebrities egos more than doing anything concrete to help the cause.

    yeah right – go back in your hole. A friend of mine’s 8 year old son was attacked by a neighborhood bully on Oct 20th – the bully was 11. He beat him so hard with a stick his mother had to take him to the ER to have his head sutured. Here is what the police did – nothing. Here is what the school did – nothing – it didn’t happen on school grounds so why should they bother? here is what the hospital did – nothing. They reported it to no one.The parents – well, it was a big accident! He’ll recover but all this Anti bully nonsense is just that – nonsense.

    Actually they have been victims for being true to themselves. Nobody know how many death threats they received everyday back in 2003.
