This is the answer that we need to give clearly and loudly to the right wing christian fundamentalist at Focus On The Family! Now in the face of the tragic wave of suicides during September of young teens gay/suspected to be gay teens being bullied to death, it can not be clear that option to Anti Bulling programs and legislation for this nations schools is the same as pulling the trigger and killing our own children, the very people who are supposed to be the future of our country! They are the ones accusing others of politicising this issue and making it a gay issue, when it is them that are politicising the issue and painting it as a "gay" issue instead of what it really is, a human issue and issue of life in death of doing what is necessary to help and save the lives of the children of this country. How many more children must die, must kill them selves because of the bulling that they are being put threw for simply being different, before we stand up and say enough is enough!
This is not simply a gay issue it is a human issues,
it is an issue that effects students regardless of their sexual orientation and that is increasingly leading to them being pushed off of the cliff into taking their own lives to make it stop, as those around them that have the ability to do so, the schools the teachers the other school staff, stand by and don't do anything out of fear or worse stand by in silent approval of what these kids are being put threw. This is an issue that has to be faced before it takes the life of another promising young person, before another parent has to barre their childed, something that no parent should ever have to do.
We need to do this now, this is as urgent an issue as guns and knives in school as bulling is the under estimated weapon, its the weapon of mental and sometimes physical torcher, its not enough to kill in one foul swoop, but like poison accumulate the right dose and it has the same deadly effects. We can't wait for things to get better we have to act to make them better!
