"While LGBT youth think about and attempt suicide more often than their straight counterpart, most LGBT youth do not attempt suicide. LGBT youth have many of the same risk factors as straight youth, but many LGBT have more or more severe risk factors. It is important to note that being LGBT is not a risk factor in and of itself; however, the minority stressors that LGBT individual encounter - such as discrimination and harassment - are directly associated with suicidal behavior as well as indirectly with risk factors for suicide."

Prejudice kills:

"The research, published in the January Pediatrics (Vol. 123, No. 1), found that LGB adults who reported high rates of parental rejection in their teens were 8.4 times more likely to report having attempted suicide, 5.9 times more likely to report high levels of depression, 3.4 times more likely to use illegal drugs, and 3.4 times more likely to have had unprotected sex than LGB peers who reported no or low levels of family rejection, reports the study team, headed by Caitlin Ryan, PhD, of San Francisco State University.
"Because families play such a critical role in child and adolescent development, it is not surprising that adverse, punitive and traumatic reactions from parents and caregivers would have such a negative influence on [young people's] risk behaviors and health status as young adults," the authors write.

Preliminary results are promising: "We've seen that families can grow and become more supportive once they've learned how their words, actions and behaviors affect their LGBT children," she says."

Another, "Eisenberg and Resnick (2004) found that family connectedness, caring adults, and school safety serve as protective factors from suicide for LGB individuals."

No two men can nurture a little girl in the way a real mother can. Stop playing house with other people's children you are going to mess them up. She is far from being well adjusted. She probably is confused why does she not have a mom and other children do.

When a boy decides to turn gay he has to be able to deal with the guilt. Obviously this one couldn't take it.6826

You are just as guilty of murdering the kid as if you'd done the deed yourself, because of your inability to care about kids. Your vile attitude is the same as genocide.

I'm guessing you're some 12 year old geek who's dying for attention.
Damn ... I just gave you some.
Oh well ... don't let mommy and daddy see what you're doing with your computer. Or maybe you learned all this hate from them? NO wonder the US is so fucked up.

That's odd, because every scout leader who has been found to have abused boys is married and identified as straight.

All sexual activity outside of a consensual unrelated male and female is a form of perversion, excess, and vice. More gay rationalizing of their perversions at the expense of other peoples' own frailties. Someto go through life only now to receive special rights.
There is nothing 'straight' about any pedophilia. Yet how is it gays label male/female pedo as being str8 pedo and expect to receive a free pass of the much statistically higher percentages of male/male pedophilia in the world. Hmmmm?
No accountability there eh?
