Not Just A Gay Issue! Another Bullied Teen Commits Suicide

Filed under: Icky Icky PooR.I.P.Sad Sad

All the more reason that this needs EVERYONE'S attention. This is not just a gay issue.

A Pennsylvania teenager killed herself Saturday night, and now her parents are speaking about about the tragedy, and claim that bullying is to blame for her death.

Tiffani Maxwell was apparently bullied so badly that fellow students falsely told teachers that they saw her do drugs, which resulted in her expulsion from school last week!

Mother Sandy reveals that in the wake of this awful loss, she and husband Shane are starting an on-line campaign to raise awareness about peer pressure and bullying, which 77% of students in the country have admitted to have been victim.

Sandy explains:

"She got text messages, saying 'Tiffani you're in rehab.' 'You're on drugs.' Even if it saves one kid … just remember there are family members behind you and that tomorrow will be better."

And Shane concludes:

“Just don’t bully people. What’s the sense of it. Put yourself in their shoes.”

Such true, and undervalued, words.

NOBODY should feel as though they have no one supporting them, and it's our job to ensure that the country's youth understand that no matter how alone, or how ganged up on, that they feel, there are people who understand and want to listen.

No more unnecessary deaths! It's time to end BULLYING once and for all!

Facebook Cyber Bullying Ends With Two Teens Arrested On Felony Charges!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad Sad

This makes us absolutely ill. Completely disgusting.

Two girls from Florida are currently facing cyberstalking charges after allegedly creating a Facebook profile for a girl from their high school, and uploading photoshopped, pornographic images of her onto the page!

According to investigators, Taylor Wynn, 16, and McKenzie Barker, 15, created the two pages “as a joke because she thought it would be funny. Because nobody liked her.”

Their idea of 'funny' was to crop the girl's head on top of a “nude prepubescent girl’s body,” with an erect penis “by the victim’s face.” In the 'About Me' section of the page, they wrote about the victim “As you may know, I am a huge whore. I love dick so much.”

Since the page's creation in late-April of last year - which, most disturbing of all, reportedly garnered up to 181 friends - the victim has been subject to “numerous incidents of teasing and ridicule” at her High School.

Investigators learned about the hoax last year and used search warrants and subpoenas to link Wynn to the crime via an IP address in her mother's name.

The girls were arrested this week and charged with a felony count of aggravated stalking of a minor under 16.

As they should be. We don't know how some people can look at this kind of outright malicious cruelty and think it's not only acceptable, but FUNNY.

We sincerely hope that these girls realize how serious their actions are, as well as anyone else who considers victimizing any of their peers in a similar fashion.

So sad.

Thoughts??

14-Year-Old Throws Himself In Front Of Tractor Trailer After Years Of Gay Bullying

Filed under: Gay Gay GayR.I.P.Sad Sad

Another devastating loss.

Brandon Bitner, a 14 year old boy from Snyder County, Pennsylvania, ended up his life on Friday night by stepping in front of a tractor-trailer rig after enduring years of relentless bullying.

In a note written beforehand, he revealed that he didn't have it in him to endure another four years of being called a "faggot" and "sissy" at his high school.

The Midd-West School District's superintendent, Wesley Knapp, claims that with the exception of an undisclosed "humiliating incident" in the cafeteria a few days before his passing, he had received no reports of Bitner being bullied.

He explains:

“I’ve been questioning myself. We can’t be too conscientious. If we see a kid who seems to be hurting, we need to single them out [for help]. The fact they don’t report it doesn’t let us off the hook. We need to reach out to kids. We’re going to try and do a better job.”

Bitner's cousin Katie Goodling continues:

“People have to know — and I’ve been getting his story out on Twitter, Facebook so people can read it — that this can happen to anyone, even people you don’t suspect.”

We can't even begin to express to his family and loved ones how sorry we are for such a tragic loss.

Again, we BEG anyone who feels bullied, tormented, confused, or alone to please speak out to someone.

There are people who love you and need you! There's so much happiness out there that can be yours, it just takes a little time and a lot of courage to find it sometimes! And we promise that it's worth the wait!

It WILL get better. We promise you that!

R.I.P. Brandon. You are in our thoughts.

Gay Bishop Says Religion Is Killing Teens

Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

gay-bishop-gene-robinson.jpg

Gene Robinson, the gay bishop of the New Hampshire diocese in the Episcopal Church, says that antigay religious leaders are the reason why bullied gay teens are taking their lives.

With antigay religious leaders making hateful speeches, such as those made by Mormon leader Boyd Packer, gay teens are made to feel humiliated and worthless, which contributes to their decision to commit suicide.

Robinson says:

"Just as many gay kids grow up in these conservative denominations as any other. They are told day in and day out that they are an abomination before God. Just consider the sheer numbers of LGBT kids growing up right now in Roman Catholic, Mormon, and other conservative religious households. The pain and self-loathing caused by such a distortion of God's will is undeniable and tragic, causing scars and indescribable self-alienation in these young victims."

Even kids who don't grow up in religious households are still exposed to the hateful and homophobic messages that are delivered through the media and even by their peers.

The bishop continues:

"It's time for "tolerant" religious people to acknowledge the straight line between the official anti-gay theologies of their denominations and the deaths of these young people. Nothing short of changing our theology of human sexuality will save these young and precious lives."

We agree.
