Let's work together against bullying and help bring the teen suicide rate down to zero

Legislated Hatred

See, we really don’t have to look too very far to figure out two very important things as we redouble our efforts to combat the atmosphere hatred and intolerance in our country, that same atmosphere that fosters and supports the bullying which leads to suicides:  1.) there’s no doubt where these young people get their intolerance and hatred from, as I’ve been saying; and, 2.) why so many young lgbt teens feel such a sense of despair and lack of self-worth.  When you have a PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE denouncing the validity of gay-ism period, and effectively telling a lesbian teen that she is defected, when you have an ELECTED PUBLIC OFFICIAL admitting to making anti-gay slurs on her facebook page, both the bullies and their victims are deeply affected.  The bullied gain vindication for their acts of ignorance and violence.  They gain the sense that it’s ok because they see adults in power denouncing the very people they victimize.  Their victims hear, once again, that their lives are essentially invalid.  They learn a sense of being lesser-than-whole.  They get to see with their own eyes that, according to far-too-many adults (in many cases, adults from their own household), they will never be able to fall in love, marry, and live happily with their chosen spouse.

This is 100% unacceptable, especially in a day and age where we’re seeing our young people end their lives because of the intolerance, hatred, and the violence that comes with it.
