although the 1989 federal report reference has been debinked, suicide bahavior in the LGBT community remains and issue that needs more research and attention.

It was found that many of those gays and lesbians were also the owner/drivers of Honda automobiles. This could just be noise in the experiment, but further studies are required.

I read an article the other day that stated “GAY HOMOSEXUALS FROM CANADA BUY HONDA.” I just wonder if con_tiki is one of these guys.

You ever been to Japan you ignoramus? It is accepted in that culture for grown men to hold hands and walk down the street and it is quite common. They even holds hands on the assembly line while they build cars....its part of the "team concept".

Perhaps if people like you weren't attacking gay people constantly...

Of course gays are at a higher risk of comitting suicide. They know in their heart that what they are doing is wrong.

Homosexual suicide rates are highest in large homosexual enclaves like Sanfransicko.
It is homofascist fanatics like you that cause much of the disillusionment with life suffered by young homosexuals. You promote cruel lies about your lifestyle choice that have no basis in reality, such as that choosing to live as a homosexual is ever likely to result in anything like marriage and family. You know that statistically that is a lie.
Well, that would be odd. Considering it's gay/lesbian youth who are most likely to have attempted suicide. Are they killing themselves in *anticipation* of being disappointed with their lives?

No. They're being driven to despair by the religious whackos in this country who constantly condemn gays and lesbians for being what they are. And they're not yet mature enough to tell them all to go to hell.

Hi, Wil, more of the same tripe coming from you.

From where I stand, it's you posting and promoting the lies that harm gay people.

The homofascist anti-religious defamation you've posted has been repeatedly refuted as the lie it is. No major religious group that I'm aware of "condemns" anyone for sexual orientation. It is homosexual acts that are repeatedly condemned in the Bible. Are you suggesting that homosexuals have no control over their own conducts?

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/kHgRdx only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
