Showing something that graphic to children isn't acceptable gay or straight black or white or any other group. Sure teach kids that bullying is wrong but showing them someone committing suicide is too far.

90% of all horror movies are twice as horrible, and kids watch these all the time. Showing the the facts is good, and facts are often "disturbing," you cannot lock them in safes until they turn 18 and then expect them to be able to deal with the rest of the world.
