Bullying of LGBT teens needs to stop

Agreed! The bullying of LGBT teens must be stopped. This is a good article discussing how a Fort Worth City Councilman's speech regarding anti-bullying was posted on You Tube and viewed over 1.8 million times;

"In almost every school across the world, bullying is an issue. Bullies often pick on those who are different from everyone else. A particular group that suffers disproportionately from bullying is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning children and teens. These youth are four times more likely to commit suicide than their straight counterparts.

Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns recently gave a speech during a city council meeting in response to the issue, telling gay youth "it will get better." A gay man who himself had been bullied in school, Burns responded to a slew of recent suicides by gay teens and called for more action to prevent future tragedies such as the ones he listed from occurring again. His emotional speech has garnered over 1.8 million views on YouTube and looks like it just may be the catalyst needed for change.

Burns' speech brings up two issues: gay rights and bullying. Burns chose a good time to make his speech, since October is National Bullying Prevention Month.
Bullying is an issue that is extremely prevalent in schools everywhere, yet it is seldom talked about or addressed sufficiently. His speech has been, and will continue to be, a great tool for increasing awareness and inspiring parents, teachers and students to get involved in recognizing and preventing bullying...."

I agree, all bullying must stop. who cares if the person is different, no one should face crap for anything like that. Most people blame christans but some of us are not like that, most of my friends are gay or lesbian and I am judged by people because I support gay rights and hang out with these people.
