Question and answer
In 2010, there was a high occurrence of suicides related to the bullying of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) preteens and young adults. What was the response to these events? Do you
feel the response was adequate? Why or why not?
Now schools are trying to combat the apparent teen suicide surge among young men dealing with anti-gay abuse, [ but the politics of sexual identity threaten to get in the way. Gay-rights supporters insist that anti-bullying programs must address harassment of gay youth. Religious conservatives call that an opportunistic manipulation to sway young people's views of homosexuality. We believe the
bullying policy should put the emphasis on the wrong actions of the bullies and not the characteristics of the victims.I dont feel that the response sere adequate. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth often face serious problems with bullying and harassment in America's schools. What should be a safe place for learning can instead become a dangerous and isolating environment for any student who regularly faces verbal and/or physical attacks. ]
