This is very disturbing.
In a Minnesota school district repped by Michele Bachmann, there have been a total of NINE teenage suicides in two years. Awful.
According to reports, the teens who have killed themselves were largely gay or perceived as gay, or bullying victims.
Thus far, Bachmann has kept very quiet about the whole situation, probably because she doesn't approve of the gay lifestyle in the first place, and doesn't "promote tolerance for gays and lesbians in the classroom."
Currently, the Justice Department and the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights are investigating schools in Bachmann's district over anti-gay bullying allegations.
We're glad to see that steps are being taken to stop this horrible trend in Michele Bachmann's school district. We can only hope that changes will be made ASAP, before we lose another teenager.
Remember Perezious readers, if you're ever feeling emotional distress, make the call that can change UR life to the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-784-2433.
