I think young people irrationally transpose the safe, open world of glbt space you can find online into their brick and mortar world.

It's a matter of unreality to think experience would be the same in each, and this appears to be a common confusion amongst teenagers, if you think about deaths from teens copying dangerous stunts they see in movies and so forth.

That confusion of realms is simply not a wise mistake to make for kids who are not in a bluer community or who do not have a large, pre existing peer support network.

The "big brave bullies" should be charged with murder. Their parents should be so proud.[note sarcasm]

This is a horrible thing, and the people who were bullying him should be held criminally responsible.

Bullying IS A CRIME.

My condolences to his family and other loved ones.

I think 14 is too young to come out. It isn't safe for them.

I'm so sad.
