Gay teen suicide rate is up due to bullying. Its sad that kids can't be themselves, if they feel like they have to hide who they are because they're scared of people lashing out at them, or making fun of them. Being gay is not a choice, they can't decided to be gay anymore than you can decided to be straight, so why do people still insist that its wrong? I just can't understand how the world can be so narrow minded. Kids, teenagers, who have there whole lives ahead of them, who could go on to do great things, and be great people are ending their lives because of teasing. Its really sad, that people of the world can't step up and stand up for the gay community. We're no different than you.
