Experts know that these suicides have been happening every day for a long time. It used to be that LGBT people would simply be hunted down and killed, then people learned if they could make it bad enough for people...they would take care of it themselves.
Any expert knows this.
They were going to kill themselves anyway. Now they are killing themselves with notes making sure everyone knows.
That's not a copy cat, that's notification.
People don't kill themselves just to make a point. They kill themselves because they see it as the best possible action.
The job of society then is to teach people that it is not the best action.
It gets better. We do care. You are not alone.
Now if their parents and friends would step in an fufill the role of society, we might just see an impact.
No Christians, you CAN NOT tell someone that they are sick and wrong and expect them to feel like you love them.
Your job, Christians, is not to defend God. Your job is to love abundantly. If love doesn't feel like love, you are doing it wrong.
Got it? Get it. Now.
