Why Are So Many Teenagers Committing Suicide In Michele Bachmann's District?

| Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad SadMichele BachmannLGBT

teens committing suicide in michele bachmanns district

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.

    I honestly doubt it has anything to do with her. For awhile, there were numerous teens killing themselves all around the country. Teens do not care that much about politics so I doubt they killed themselves because of her. This is a far stretch in my opinion.

  2. 2

    Re: yeaman – I think he's more pointing out the fact that as someone who is supposed to represent all the members of their district she should be more concerned about it.

  3. 3

    Your obsession with this woman is disturbing. Your connection between her and the suicides is even worse.

    I think it is unfair to put the tragic suicides on Bachmann. I don't support her politically and I realize some of her opinions are ridiculous. However, the fact that 9 innocent people feel they cannot go on is tragic and we have focus on the people hurting and not the people in the public eye.

  5. 5

    I agree with you Perez 100%. It is people like her and Anita Bryant that caused young people the most embarassment and shame. I think Bachmann should resign and become a nun, because that is the only group of people that approve of such close minded thinking.

  6. 6

    Although she is bat shit crazy you can't blame her for the suicides. Get real.

  7. 7

    the problem isn't really her. the problem is that the teachers, principals, and parents who allow this bullying to go on without intervening are also the kind of people who would vote for Bachmann

  8. 8

    it disgusts me that you would even make a correlation between a govt offical and these tragedies. I come from a small town and we have over 10 suicides from the end of my sophomore year of highschool to the end of my senior year. It was tragic and it made highschool so much harder on everyone then it should ever be, not to mention the lives of the families that lost a child. to blame a gov official in the area for what these kids choose to do is unspeakable

  9. 9

    after this gay in your face connected these dots, can you trust a single thing he says? oh, you already dont. i think ill call this "militant gay logic"

  10. 10

    Re: m_winnike – True, I never thought about that. I do not agree with her views at all but I do not believe it is her that is making the suicides happen. Yes, I do believe people like her, that do not accept gays and lesbians, push people over the edge but I believe Perez's intention, just like in all of his intentions about her, is to black list this women. She has alot more to worry about then equal rights.

  11. 11

    As usual you're spinning this to suit your agenda. Bet if you actually did some research fatboy this would be comparable or less to suicides committed across the US by teens. I'm going to use your twisted logic and say there's more gay teen suicides in your district because they're embarrassed to be living next to a pedophile.

  12. 12

    I agree with comments that it's really bad to connect this with a government official..but! She is someone wants to "make gays straight" and has this clinic….I look at this as more of an "interesting fact." It's happening all over….but, my gosh…what if she loved one another? and what if her clinic taught love for everyone? Maybe these kids could get help for who they are.

  13. 13

    I don't think Perez is blaming her - he is just pointing out that she might want to address the situation, but since she feels that homosexuality is a choice, what could she possibly say? Politically, she might feel that this is one issue that is better off ignored.

  14. 14

    I doubt it has anything to do with her and am sure it is just a coincidence, but she is still an extremely infuriating and backwards person. I can't even stand looking at her smug mug. As a republican myself, I wish the party would really get their act together and get a REAL republican who believes in both fiscal conservatism and totally upholding constitutional rights.

  15. 15

    It has EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HER. by fostering and enabling a culture of hate. She is the American Hitler.

    Re: rosebud99 – Please, Hilton's sole purpose is to denigrate this woman because of her views. He is transparently obvious without actually saying it's her fault. Why not post a story about other school districts with high suicide rates? Doesn't take a rocket scientist……

  18. 18

    Subtle Mario, really subtle. She was elected by people in the district, who have more opportunity and responsibility to change their community than one policy maker. I can tell you that if I saw a trend of suicides in a school system, as a parent I would be all over that school board and public officials to address it, along with the community.
    The fact that you are making a cursory link between her policy and the suicide rate of teens only serves to hurt the policy makers which would address it. You add fuel to the fire of the bad bigoted, homophobes, and you piss all over the quality actions of change agents. Either stay away from these topics or PLEASE contract these posts out to a valid advocacy agency.

  19. 19

    Bachmann is a lunatic right wing nut. She hates America. Anyone who supports her hates America.

  20. 20

    Do you have LEGITIMATE proof there are more in her specific district than anywhere else? I doubt it. I agree that she's outrageous, but until you can provide proof I believe nothing that cones out of your mouth all for the benefit of you trying to make a name for yourself to help the gays. Post facts and proof or shut up. I am all over supporting gays, with facts, not someone's overblown need to fight for them. I will be first in line backing you up WITH FACTS. Otherwise, you are only hurting your cause. So let's see the proof Perez?

  21. Woof says – reply to this


    the point here is indifference, which is more harmful than anything else. When you are in a position of power, where you are able to do something to better the community you represent, there is a big difference between doing something and doing nothing. If more people at the top of these chains voiced concern, got involved, initialized the spread of information to help these kids, they would be saving lives. But, alas, politicians don't think past the next election. sad sad sad

  22. 22

    I would like to know why all 23 or her foster children where teenage girls? Could it be that she wanted free babysitters and also knew they would be safe from her repressed homosexual husband? JMHO. Funny thing is it appears that hate monger Michelle is in a gay marriage herself.

  23. 23

    2 the extent that she promotes intolerance and makes it ok for someone to bully a person because of their sexual orientation or for any other reason, she is to blame…
    language and words have consequences and making it cool to bully someone may just be the tipping point for someone unsure of themselves.
    she may not agree with the gay lifestyle but she must project love for gays, otherwise she runs the risk of her words becoming distorted…and that just may kill someone.
    she is responsible, at the very least, for her words and lack of compassion.

  24. 24

    Because the "JESUS SAVES" movement is ONE BIG LIE!

    Re: XraySpex – and anyone who doesn't like gays is a homophobe right?j

    freedom of speech asshole.

  28. 28

    she isnt causing them herself but its her way of thinking that is. its what saying and thinking as she does that causes this kind of outcome/ reaction. you cant cure you just shame and drive someone into depression by making them feel so wrong about themselves. she is elected in that area because people agree with her way of thinking so in return gay kids are more than likely facing a mountain of bigotry and shame as most of their community feels they are sinners, wrong, correctable etc. in addition the fact bachman rides this sentiment to rally votes on a local and now national level means she is fanning this way of thinking strenghtening its effect. so no she directly isnt responsible but she is becoming the face of what is

  29. 29

    Perez, you are a disgusting idiot!!!!! Goodbye!! I'm done with you….

  30. 30

    Thanks for the proof.

    Gay Nazi = Liar

  31. buck says – reply to this


    only in the Liberal world would one label a person ,who graduated in the top of her college class, got a law degree, was an attorney for the IRS, had 5 children of her own, provided foster care to 23 other children, provided short-term care for patients with eating disorders, grew up a democrat but saw the light, ran her own business, ran a farm, started a charcter school, was elected to the school board, was a state senator, became a US Congress woman, as stupid, crazy or a lunatic. Liberals are hysterical!

  32. 32

    This IS NOT her fault. This kind of stuff happens EVERYWHERE! Check numbers for other people's districts then come back. This is why no one likes gay people. You're all so damn whiny and think the rest of the world owes you something because you're not "normal".

  33. 33

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsGet.com

  34. 34

    So if this logic is correct, can we say that any straight kids that commit suicide because they don't support the gay agenda is Perez's fault? Really? Why not? Since when is believing that homosexuality is a sin hateful? Her clinic does absolutely nothing to promote hate or bullying. Saying that you will pray for someone is note hateful. But bullying people into thinking that having a view opposite from the gay agenda is.

    Her clinic's motto is hate the sin LOVE the sinner. Which is the basic teaching behind the christian belief that homosexuality is a sin. It is a sin to gay bash, bully or torment as well. I think the left mentality truly cannot grasp the concept that as christians you can love someone without condoning their life choice.

  35. 35

    Ill be landing in about an hr FatBoy. Get ready to make another embarrassing cry baby video, that is you can still talk when Im done.

  36. 36

    perez should be ashamed of himself. how dare he use the poor blight of these teenagers in his political attacks. we don't log on to see you attack politicians, no matter how terrible. and these poor kids who committed suicide are now being used to defame someone. i may not log on anymore. him, out of everyone should understand how wrong this is.

  37. 37

    Re: Pubes_for_hair_plugs – *cheers uncontrollably* OH HELL YES.
    Mario, are you so low that you have to try to make Bachmann out to be responsible for the deaths of people she DOESN'T EVEN KNOW? The responsibility for suicide lies with the person who makes that decision. There are oodles of touchy-feely counseling groups out there for all of society's ills; suicide is SELFISH and COWARDLY. Bachmann is not responsible, nor should she have to reach out to the families of the people who bowed out by choice. You are as crazy and as militant as the muslim extremists are; you deserve a fate similar to theirs. Asshole.

  38. 38

    And one more thing, why is a homosexual suicide more tragic than a straight one? Why do you continue to segregate into groups? ALL suicides are tragic

  39. 39

    Being a Bully yourself, there is a more direct connection between those suicides and YOU than between Bachmann's and the suicides.

  40. 40

    Re: newyork1 – i agree, it is disgusting and disturbing that you are using these poor teenagers who commited suicide in your political attacks. regardless of your political views i think it is wrong and belittles the plight of these teenagers. you should be ashamed perez!

  41. 41

    Re: annenne – I couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks for nailing that point home. I have gay friends, and I love them dearly, but I still believe it's a sin. We have open and honest discussions about it. That's what adults do. We learn that having a difference of opinion doesn't make us enemies, it makes us individuals.

  42. 42

    Surprise! Surprise!
    Michele Bachmann & her closeted husband should think about how their words & actions affect others!

  43. 43

    Well if her district voted her in they must share in some of those values? Don't you think and if Perez is constantly talking about this woman GOOD for him! She is crazy preaching actually the opposite of what her Christian self does. Plus you don't have to come on Prez's website? Maybe your constantly following Prez?

  44. 44

    Suicide is a choice, just like being gay is a choice. I could commit suicide because i'm disgusted with the idiot that currently ruining our country. I won't however because I want to see him fall flat on his face during the next election. Don't blame someones selfish act of suicide on anyone other than the person that committed it.

    Re: annenne – You're looking for fault and finding it - No one is saying one death is more important - no one but you that is - So go in your corner and find some more fault

  49. 49

    You're sadly delusional.

  50. 50

    Re: crazyny – Correct me if I'm wrong, but every story is about the struggles of GAY suicide and bullying. Not my words, Perez's words. I'm not trying to find fault. When you start to move away from light gossip into "wannabe serious reporting", then you need to be held to a higher standard. You can't just spit out numbers to support your view without factual evidence. And refresh my memory, but when was the last time that Perez was outraged about straight suicides? Ever?… Like I said before, he's doing a disservice to the victims of suicide with his relentless mission to split us all into groups. If you don't like it, go back to your corner.

    Re: annenne – It's not your blog -so why do you think you have the right or the abilty to tell someone who has been doing this successfully for a very long time how to do it or what should be featured - In other words how fucking arrogant and stupid are you?

  53. 53

    Re: crazyny – Question: How do you measure success? Is it about how much money you make, or is it how well-respected and well though of you are? If you measure it by money, then perhaps Perez is a "success." If you measure it by respect and admiration, then Perez is an epic failure. Maybe you need to remember that Perez put himself out here as a public figure; if you don't like the feedback he's getting, and most of it is negative, you might consider that we can't all be wrong and you and Perez the only ones right. Just some food for thought.

  54. 54

    Re: crazyny – So, instead, everyone should have your mindset? lol Maybe you should be more open minded and excepting of others' beliefs. I'll pray for you :)
    As far as my gays go, honey, I was in dance choir for 6 years…enough said.

  55. 55

    Re: crazyny – Clearly not as stupid and arrogant as you. Wait, is this Perez under a pseudonym? And so that you understand me, that means a fake/pretend name. It's an open comments page buttmunch! And Perez can delete or block my comments or any other comment he doesn't agree with. But, and this is probably the only time I'll give Perez props, he chooses to leave the comments area as an open debate. And THAT is what he chooses to do with his blog. If you don't like my comments, go on to another blog.

    If you're going to make such claims you best provide links to the sources of this information. Throwing out something like this needs verification. I know there is a group that is actively involved with trying to discredit Bachmann and her family and members of this group have a gay agenda. Provide us with the verifiable documents to collaberate your claims.

  59. 59

    PEREZ YOUR IGNORANCE TO SUPPORT YOUR CAUSE IS EMBARRASSING. Really??? I don't care for this woman, however when you pull theories such as this out of your ass you only serve to minimize the valid viewpoints and opinions that are out there. Stick to facts and get off the crack. Unbelievable.

  60. 60

    I can't believe you would stoop so low as to insinuate its her fault for the kids deaths

  61. 61

    Liberalism is a mental disorder!
    Perez is a hater!
    Liberalism is self-loathing.

  62. 62

    Perez, go fuck your mother! How in the fuck can you blame Michele Bachman for those deaths? You are a pathetic liberal who MURDERED BOTH BRITTANY MURPHY AND AMY WINEHOUSE. If Lindsay Lohan dies in the next 100 years, PEREZ HILTON IS TO BLAME.

    Do you see how psycho your post is now, Mario, or do I need to ask Sunday Roast what she thinks? You are the biggest cocksmoker I've ever seen IN MY LIFE.

  63. 63

    Rolls eyes.

  64. 64

    Who knows? It might be interesting to do a study on where the majority of teen suicides are taking place and if there are any similar factors that could be involved as a way to help decrease them. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

I'll let you in on a little secret - You can't win intelligent people for God by telling them they are going to hell honey - And most people with a brain can spot your bigoted attitude a mile away - It's entirely unchristian - i would recomend a little sit down time with someone from the gay communtiy that is a christian to help you out

I am not too worried about hurting your feelings cause I am sure all those gay friends you say you have can help you heal from this - You're full of shit - LOL- but it's really funny
