  1. I think people need to stop treating other people like shit for being different. He was a fucking adolescent, he was 14, that’s way too young to have to feel like that’s your only way out. We need to wake up and think about the shut they say before they say it.

  2. Reblogged this on Fairy JerBear's Queer World News, Views & More From The City Different – Santa Fe, NM and commented:
    Yet another tragic death. I wonder if their is some psychological contagion involved in addition to the obvious underlying pain. Since all the attention following Leelah’s death I’ve noticed several tumblr posts that seem to be hurting trans youth and this along with the other suicide of a trans boy makes three. We need to do more to intervene before it goes this far. I noticed one positive post from someone who’d considered suicide but didn’t and was glad they survived. This needs attention from multiple angles including hope for a better future messages.

  3. Horrifying what humans do to each other. Education is key but it won’t stop those adults who already hate anyone who’s different. Hate is taught…hopefully education can counter what kids learn from SOCIETY but it’s iffy at best. It’s insane that children and adults have to kill themselves because they don’t feel they fit into the tiny boxes the status quo has set up for everyone. Horrifying.
