I'd like to return yesterday, please.


My sister called me last night and told me that one of my niece's classmates killed himself. He'd been depressed for some time, and although his family tried to get him help, it obviously wasn't enough.

Oh, and by the way? He was bullied in school for being gay.

Yeah.

Even more need to stand up against bullying. *sigh*

May you have better news for the weekend.

Alas, probably not - I have a lot more news to report, just waiting for the right moment.

Do I need to be worried?

I wouldn't say worried, but, as Paul Harvey would say, stand by for news! (And to get... the rest of the story!)

I'm so sorry. I'm sorry for so many thing related to this article.

And I'm glad that my gay friends had the support and courage to come out and live through everything they had to live though. I just wish there was a way to tell these kids it's worth getting out.

I would do a new video but i really hate the sound of my voice and honestly for me it did not get better. so i feel like i would be lying. i mean i did make one video but it sucks ass.

i just wish i had found the acceptance in main stream gay world that other gays have found. Only in Furry and somewhat in the SCA have i found that. and even there i get more crap than i ever got in High School for being gay. and just like in highschool it is from fellow gays i get the shit.

All the work we've done, and it's still happening. So I guess we'll have to work harder, then.

Imagine how I feel - I've been working on making things better since, oh, 'bout 1987 or so.

But, yes, we keep at it. It's what we do. :)
