    Jesus. 13 years old. A kid hung themselves, again. =/

    So, yeah, I didn't get bullied for being gay or anything, but I did get bullied a lot in sixth grade. It got to where I started feigning being sick so I could go home. I had some oblivious teachers, too. In shop class, a kid hammered nails into my stool, and three others forced me onto them. Nothing was done about this. Imagine how alone I felt.

    A couple of years later...I verbally teased someone else, rather brutally at times, for a while, and I'm rather ashamed of that, was then and still am now. It was funny until I realized it wasn't, that I'd been through the same and worse, and I apologized to him.  Since that point, I, despite being a "cool" kid, intervened to stop bullying of others, but clearly, most people don't try.

    But hey, in a nation which is run by people who think greed is good and villify "teh gays" as ruining our society when they're the ones doing it, I don't expect it to get better anytime soon, sadly.

    I will respect the Republican Party the day they decide to start respecting all Americans....therefore, I will never respect the Republican Party.

      and the Baptist Evangelicals and the Mormons who come knocking on my door to protect us from 'tehgays & homosexhsuals" are definitely respsonsible for the death of Seth and all others.

      Who would Jesus bully?

      Who would Jesus need protection from?

      We really need to shove this back in their faces.  Why can't we march into their mega churches and protest this?  Or surround their mega churches with a prayer ins where we pray that they will quit being bullies, bigots and baggers.
