Within the last four days, 4 gay teens have committed suicide. Most recently a Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, due to “bullying” for reasons related to sexual orientation.
High School and College are indeed difficult times for the youths that are still “finding themselves” and exploring sexual encounters. Children/teens/adults can be cruel and we have seen that sometimes from those cruel ridicules come tragic endings. Ciara and La La (two non-gay celebrities) have come up with a “It Gets Better” campaign that basically lets the gay youth know things will get better.
The star of the football team usually ends up the town drunk after high school anyway people– It Does Get Better!
