Sad Gays

Reading down a rabbit hole on the Internet the other day. One article led to the next, and somehow, a search for a  Honey Badger stock ended up with an article by a lesbian wherein she talked a lot about wanting to commit suicide. Turns out, gays and lesbians are as much as six times more likely to  commit suicide than straight folks.

A quick search on that topic yielded hundreds of blogs, tweets, and other social media expressions of a gay person or lesbian wishing to commit suicide. Hundreds. Makes me worry about them as people. I've several friends who are gay / lesbian and I would hope if they ever felt this way, they would reach out for help, immediately.

At one point, our society considered homosexuality a mental disorder. I think we need to go back to that idea. These people really need help. Not "locked away" help. Real help: therapy, group counselling, church, medication, diet, exercise, etc.
