Bullying Against Gays

Young gay youths are the most at risk when it comes to bullying because of society's views on homosexuality. Everyday there is always a story on the news about high school kids committing suicide because they couldn't handle the torment of ignorant individuals. High school is suppose to be a time of fun and experience things about yourself and others, but unfortunately it can be a dangerous time for our younger generation. Bullying has gotten so much worst and for some reason it doesn't seem to stop. Study shows that a gay student gets called a faggot, homo, punk, etc every 14 minutes of the day. That is way to much to say to someone that didn't do anything. 31% of teens have been threatened within the last year alone. The suicide rate as increased within the last year as well which is ridiculous especially when it happens to teens as young as 12 or 13 years old. The discrimination has got to stop!
