How about we start with some facts!
Did You Know:

-85% of teachers oppose integrating lesbian, gay and bisexual themes in their curricula.
  • Gay and lesbian youth are two to three times more likely to commit suicide than other youths, and 30 percent of all completed youth suicides are related to the issue of sexual identity. -Report to the Secretary's Task Force on Youth Suicide.
    • Harassment and bullying have been linked to 75 percent of school-shooting incidents. -US Secret Service Report, May 2002
    • One out of every 10 students who drops out of school does so because of repeated bullying. -Oklahoma Health Department, 2001

Now tell me why the Gay community has to be so scared to show who they really are.
Why are people so predjudice against them? Hm. They are just like us are they not. They were born the same way as the rest of us. They eat sleep and drink like the rest of us. They go to the same schools. They act just like everyone else. The only difference is there sexual partners.

For Years and Years and still to this day, many people have discriminated againt homosexuals. The people, the church, parents, friends, teacher, and co-workers. All these people are doing is forcing them to hide or commit suicide. The only people who seem to get away with homosexuality are celberties.
Everyone on this earth should be treated the same. Does everyone not say that. Is it not world peace that people have been fighting for for all of these years! YES! As a matter of fact IT IS!
Just because one does not agree with someones sexuality does not mean they need to put that person down or discriminate against them. They can just look the other way and not talk about it.
These people have feelings just like your own, there's should be respected as well. Stop and listen the next time you or someone opens there mouth and says some horrible thing about gays and lesbians. Then take a moment and sit there and think about how many people have commited suicide because of the poison that comes out when you/they speak. Think about how many people are forced to live a secret life because they aren't accepted.

THINK about what you would say or do if one of your loved ones came up to you and told you they were gay. Would you speak those same words to them. Would you discriminate against the one they love. Would you want to be the one who forces them to hide who they truly are or to end who they are forever.
No one wants those burdens on there shoulders.
So next time. STOP.THINK.LISTEN.Goodnight!
