Quote# 142358

study researchers led by Mark Hatzenbuehler of Columbia University polled more than 30,000 11th graders in different counties. Results showed that about 20 percent of LGB teens attempted suicide in the 12 months before the survey, while only about 4 percent of heterosexual teens had. This isn't because of bullying, because it's widely excepted. The suicide rate is even higher in the 20-35 age and domestic violence is extremely high. Why all the unhappiness?

All the unhappiness is because of bullying and violations of human rights.

Sherryh, it's exactly BECAUSE assholes like you keep persecuting, bullying, and in some cases murdering them for no real reason that LGBT have such a high depression rate!!

You want this to stop? You really care about them? THEN FIX YOURSELF FIRST!!

It is widely excepted. Accepted, not so much.

Actually bullying in general can and has led to suicide. You're wrong. It's largely because of bullying and their families disowning them

What do you bet that sherryh here was bullied: for reasons of illiteracy.

This isn't because of bullying,


How the hell do you know? Unless you sit down and talk to each one of those kids you have no idea what they've experienced. And even if it's not because of outright bullying by their peers, it's because of the homophobia which constantly runs through society.

Why all the unhappiness?


Why don't you get to know them and ask them yourself? Or does your little rapture cult forbid being friends with anyone who's not in it?

This isn't because of bullying, because it's widely excepted[sic!] [accepted].


Right!

And there's no racism in Mississippi or anywhere else in the US. Non-whites, especially the ones from "shit hole" countries are widely accepted.

Thinking Allowed

I have a brother that is gay. For years his father (he's a half brother) and him didn't get along. It wasn't until our mother died and his father realizing that that he was not right in his thinking that his dad came to terms with my brothers sexuality. Now they are very close and best of friends.

Before that, his father somewhat bullied him and he felt estranged from the rest of his dad's family because they are actually worse. Now my brother has an ally when he is with his paternal side because of his dad.

Yes it is and there's your answer! So STOP BULLYING!

Can't you ever go after real sins like murder, theft, greed, etc?

Instead; You complain about sex stuff and pop-culture....and you wonder why pews are emptying.

And it's "accepted", dummy, not "accepted".

They refuse to accept it anymore and Jesus is on THEIR SIDE!

It's not widely accepted. It's more accepted then it use to be yes but LGBT individuals are still being bullied at high numbers. many end up homeless as their families want nothing to do with them.

Why all the unhappiness?

I have an idea, Sherryh, why don't you find some LGBT kids and ask them?

It was widely "excepted" at my school. Still, I'm glad I stopped using those names, once I knew what they meant. Now they have a Safe Schools program, to teach the kids to be more ACCEPTING, but which makes fundies come out in hives.

It's well documented that bullying, for any reason, drives kids to depression and suicide. You should be so proud, you carrion crow.
