It is sad that people pick on others because they have different feelings. Being gay does not hurt anyone as long as people are not doing something illegal leave them alone. Yes because of religious reasons some may believe being gay is wrong or illegal. Until your ouse is clean don't judge others. Just an opinion

Words cannot cut or kill anyone. America is becoming a country full of politically correct wussies. Never had this problem 40 years ago. It's slowly becoming a culture that you have to tip toe through everything and if someone disagrees with your opinion your a bully.

We have always had this problem it just wasn't the "buzzword" topic like it is today. If schools would let the kids being bullied knock the s*it out of the bullies like the old days it would end but now the kid getting picked out gets suspended along with the bully

IT is even sadder when the biggest bullies in someone's life is their own family. Family that is upset because they are afraid of what the community will think of them or because their precious genes will not be passed on to grandchildren. The bullying for Billy Lucas started and ended at home.
