Obituary

 

A teenage boy,
unsure of life.
Could not be convinced
that he was not
alone, no matter what
they said. Died
from a severe
case of bully.

 

 

 

A thirteen-year-old boy named Tyrone Unsworth committed suicide recently because of bullying about his sexuality. And there are people arguing that Safe Schools, a program implemented in parts of Australia, to teach kids about homosexuality (and sexuality in general) is not needed. A lot of people are actually saying that it promotes homosexuality. Because obviously, with just a bit of a push, kids will wake up one morning and think, “Hey, I’d like to be teased and bullied and ridiculed and hated by a large part of the community, possibly for the rest of my life.”

I’ve said it a couple of times recently, I think. The world sucks.
