Gay Teen Commits Suicide, More Gay Bullying

Even sadder is that he recorded one of those It Gets Better videos. Even sadder it it happened a day after DADT ended.

I got a kick out of his Lady Gaga thing. It boggles my mind, though that when something so emotional as this is happens... people bust out in statistics like.... chickenpox. I felt the news people were very good about this. Somebody was on the ball.

Lastly because they are disproportionately affected they're more likely to gain attention.
Hence the co-incidence of church burnings and segregation at the time.

First off, you miss the point of my comments completely

Secondly:
Example of news bias:
Man holds girl hostage as sex slave. Media: HOW AWEFULL!!!

Woman holds man hostage as sex slave. Media: GOOD FOR HER!



Very bad example as it is a blatant (and in my opinion the most fu<ktardedly outlandish I've ever read on this forum) exaggeration.

Aaaaannd kids in band get bullied more than kids on the football team.

Aaaaannd kids in wheelchairs get bullied more than kids not in wheelchairs.

Aaaaand guys in home-ec get bullied more than girls in home-ec.

Aaaaannd the nerdy little kid that started the knitting club got bullied more than the quarterback.

And of the MAJORITY of people that were bullied, insulted or beat up, a vast minority of them couldn't handle it.

BUT, for some reason, if you`re of the `protective victim` class, you`re more likely to get on the news.

Example of news bias:
Man holds girl hostage as sex slave. Media: HOW AWEFULL!!!

Woman holds man hostage as sex slave. Media: GOOD FOR HER!

Ultimately this should show how LGBT youth disproportionally affected than the general population considering they only make around less than 3% of it.
