The Worst Advice Dan Savage Ever Gave
The one where Dan Savage regrets advice that he gave several years ago.
Even today, with marriage equality and increasingly equal rights for gay folks, telling 15-year-olds to come out carries a huge risk of them getting tossed out on the street by parents who don’t get them. Or don’t want them, for that matter.
I’ve loved Dan Savage from afar for years (his podcast is amazing), but here, he totally makes amends for — decades — suggesting that a young kid come out to family.

What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.
When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
