    I don't want to diminish the bullying that everyone could potentially face, regardless of sexual orientation, but this report, to me, is about the specific issues faced by gay, lesbian and gender non-conforming people. . .
    Don't worry, you're not diminishing anything by pointing out the unique challenges faced by LGBT kids.  As background, I was bullied on account of pretty much every classic attribute (shortest kid in class, glasses before they were cool, massive Jewfro after they were cool, clumsy/unathletic, etc.) except for sexuality.  Though the wounds have never quite healed, it was absolutely nothing compared to this horrible case, and for that matter the experiences of my LGBT friends.  The minor shit I went through almost broke me (being diagnosed as clinically depressed at age 10 isn't as fun as it sounds), so I can't even fucking imagine.  

    Families is where a nation finds hope, where wings take dream.
