    I've seen enough on how suicides destroy families and loved ones... it's a very selfish act to take the easy way out. The circumstances... obviously matter though... but I would say most suicides are selfish...

    Wow, I point out that it's all a bunch of fear and here someone is just screaming in anger. Right again, I guess.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's an emotional response, I don't blame you for it, I'm just pointing it out. People fear death, therefore they rally against those who do not.

    My right hand has never let me down. My left hand, on the other hand...
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I think it would be insane for someone to condemn someone when you have no earthly idea what their circumstances are.

    I do fear death... but do people not have a responsibility to others they coexist with? Friends and family and children?

    Re: Is suicide cowardly?

    For me, it makes no more sense to apply such a label as it does to attribute some measure of heroism to those who never consider it. What with every possible potentiality of time and circumstance, accounting for all the vagaries of emotion and human frailty, the suggestion of a baseline is surely specious. I don't generally subscribe to the concept of cowardice, it representing nothing more substantial than deviation from an impossible ideal. Were the sum total of humanity not so irreducible, we couldn't be human at all and our species could never have evolved. Where one would posit any such correlation, it would behoove the claimant to make the case for constants hitherto unguessed at.

    Silly claim to make really, unless you're a ****ing idiot.
