    Very sad and tragic story. My heart goes out to the family.

    Let’s not forget all the other bullying that’s going on. Those who call people “Jesus freaks” are just as bad. This form of “education” begins at home, and should be attacked there.

    beenthere41, are you kidding?

    Putting someone else’s sex life on the internet without their knowledge is radically different from calling someone a “Jesus Freak.” First of all, as a Christian, I do not face dangerous prejudice or even violence at the hands of others - not in this country anyway. Second, I don’t know any Christians who wish to keep their faith secret, but I know many gays who do for obvious reasons.

    If you can’t see the difference, I feel sorry for you.

    ^ The difference is that beenthere41 has a deep-seated need to point out – whether true or not – that anything done by conservatives is out-weighed by things done by liberals.

    Truth or empathy does not enter into it.

    I don’t think beenthere had a great example either, but he has a good point. It’s not just about homophobia, bullying hits all kinds of people. There was a case a couple years ago where a grown woman didn’t like something a teenager said to her daughter and “cyberbullied” her until she committed suicide. Homosexuality had nothing to do with it.

    The obese tub of lard with the pointy head in the green shirt is not exactly what I would call a good example of manhood. It is overloading the bridge and the bridge could collapse.

    ^^ Very true, iamthelorax… but I can’t remember any incidents recently where a person in high political office, such as an Assistant Attorney General, was out stalking and cyberbullying an individual with the protection of his Republican AG because they’re both “family values” politicians and the target wasn’t a gay student… or the case where one student put two bullets in the back of another student’s head because the kid wasn’t gay. Usually with school shoot’em ups… they target more than one student/teacher.

    I’m aware of the cases you’re speaking of, though, and it was certainly very tragic.

    as soon as the internet is involved, some people’s brains go for a walk (i.e., their brain is gone as soon as they touch anything with a screen and a keyboard.)

    Bullies have always been around. In the “old pattern” -they were bigger, or had enough friends to back them up, to let their cowardice masquerade as “tough guys” when picking on smaller in size or number victims. (Gee, no relationship to certain leaders of a certain big country looking for small targets of opportunity.)

    But the internet, electronic cameras, web pages, and “social networking” allow even the puniest in mentality and physical statures to be “bullies”– and cowards.

    • I don’t like your tone, do we need to come to your country to spread freedom?

    No Jade, don’t go there, Spreading freedom, besides being impossible is too costly. How many corpses would you invest in such stupidity? Lets reinforce freedom right here where a cup of tea could prove poisonous.

    “Spreading freedom, besides being impossible is too costly”

    • Spreading ‘freedom’ is a just cost… but that also implies we care about costs of “spreading freedom.” We only care about costs of providing health care and social services to the less fortunate.

    JADE: You can’t think of any instances where one student shot another student for a reason other than being gay?

    Surely you jest.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a dozen female students who shoot other female students because they’re jealous over their boyfriends!

    On a separate note, I recently heard of a teacher in California who committed suicide and one of the theories they’re exploring is he was despondent because his poor teaching evaluation score was reported in the newspaper. (The fact that this is merely a theory at this point hasn’t stopped the teachers union from demanding that evaluations not be published. But that’s another story.)

    The worst of the Right wing call for gays to be shot…

    And trouble accepting their homosexuality is the top reason teenagers commit suicide!

    Some righties say that homosexuality itself is to blame, not the way people see it. They say suicide is a side effect of that “disease”.
