"Juvenile" Cruelty, Real Consequences

I'm glad I never lived in the dorms. Some days my fellow humans make me cry...

Rutgers, Friends and Family of Tyler Clementi Mourn Suicide

just because I didn't kill myself, doesn't mean I didn't feel like I was dying

This type of shit is unusual in its absence, not in its presence. It's the bullying that all gay, bi and trans kids go through, even now. More if they're fat and/or geek - it's additive, not either/or.

Most turn it inward. Many die by their own hand. Some turn it outward.

I'm a straight cis woman, and I had suicidal thoughts constantly due to being bullied. I can't even imagine how much worse it would have been to have had lesbian/trans/bi added into it.
