    Jesus what a bitch. Reminds me of some of my own family. I mentioned gay teen suicide to one of my older, fundamentalist sisters years ago and she said, "Well if they're gay, they should commit suicide." I've barely spoken to her since. Bitch.

    But here's this as wipe:

    ...When asked about young gay people coming out to friends and family, she said: “They do not need to come out to everyone.

    “That’s the beginning of many troubling roads for many young people when they announce it and they feel like they have to live up to that, or down to that.”

    She also gave advice on how to stop being gay.

    “Be patient with yourself. Lots and lots of people have changed out of this lifestyle. And some have done it through Christian faith; others have done it as they mature.”

    She added: “You shouldn’t be involved in sexual relations anyway.”

    “For Christian kids you can really talk to them about what the Bible says ‘are you going to disbelieve what’s clearly in scripture?’”
    Earlier this month, she dismissed the idea that gay teens are kicked out of their own homes.

    She said: “The teen storms out by choice and leaves voluntarily because the homosexual relationship is more important than that of his or her parents.

    “And when that all-important relationship ends, the teen is too stubborn or already too involved in alcohol or drugs or the premature independence of the homosexual life and he or she would rather drift than return home.

    “I’ve heard [it] far too often.”...

    That really sounds disturbing. That is not loving at all... How can they not understand it's not a choice? What are gay teens supposed to do? It's like condoms. There are young adults who will have sex, gay or straight, and to not promote condoms is silly. Abstinence only education fails.

    They don't get that being gay is not a process. You are either attracted to the same sex or opposite sex or both.

    People fail to see the natural world around them.

    Grindr and other hookup apps only make it easier for gaybashers to find victims. Having "location services" turned on, only gives them an easy target.

    I am sure, the crimes are very under reported because of the down-low nature of many of the users.

    Arrest made in robbery, rape of tourist who met his attacker on Grindr

    Police arrested 26-year-old Douglass Casey and set bail at $1 million, reports Phillymag.com.

    According to the arrest report: “The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has charged 26-year-old Douglass Casey with Indecent Deviant Sexual Intercourse (IDSI), Sexual Assault, Robbery, Kidnapping for Ransom, Theft, Unlawful Restraint, Terrorstic Threats, False Imprisonment, Simple Assault and [reckless endangerment.] Casey is charged with assaulting and robbing a man he met on ‘Grindr’ in a Philadelphia hotel on April 9, 2014.”

    Following the assault, the victim, who was visiting Philadelphia for an education conference, said he was forced to buy four $500 Visa gift cards, and was then walked to five nearby ATMs and told to withdraw $200 from each cash machine. In total, he was robbed of $3000.

    “The whole thing was just a giant blur. I was scared and I kept thinking if i just do what he says, then he’ll just go away,” the victim said.

    I have said this countless times that hooking up and having meaningless sex among gay men will lead to us becoming low in numbers. Gay men do not see this advantages of using condoms and having more men to have sex with in the long term.

    A couple tried to rape me once during a 3-way hookup, but I beat off my attackers and we all parted happy.

    i_hate_bullies saidi was raped once and while some people might think a gay guy getting raped is not as serious as a woman being raped, they are mistaken.

    It hurts so much when someone forces it inside. you scream and feel so much pain. you feel suffocated because he pins you down. A nightmare.icon_sad.gif


    I'm sorry that you experienced that! That's awful!

    some people's head are too small, or too narrow. also maybe cognitive dissonance.

    as long as they're not forcing their believes on other people, it might be okay for them to spout their nonsense.
