The story can be found here (Jamie Hubley, Gay 15-Year-Old Ottawa, Canada Teen Commits Suicide, Cites Depression, School Troubles)
I just wanted to bring this to people's attention. Personally, this story is very saddening. This prompts me to ask the question: How do you think we can end this trend of gay teen suicides?
I think that this only shows why we need to create strict rules and enforce them when it comes to bullying, especially when it comes to matters such as these. I think that there should be an open network of parents, teachers, and school counselors which a kid can come to and talk about their problems.
From the article:
Jamie Hubley, a gay 15 year old from Ottawa, Canada, committed suicide on Friday.
The 10th grade student documented his life, including his depression and the hardships of being a gay teen, in a blog, reports the Ottawa Citizen.
The blog, called "You Can't Break... When You're Already Broken" featured posts with numerous references to and photos of self harm and cutting, pictures of guys kissing and mentions of wanting a boyfriend, and bleak, ominous messages like "Sometimes I wish the breeze would just take me with it," "The only thing worse than being hated is being ignored. At least when they hate you they treat you like you exist," and "Suicides is always an option."
