If a gay teen commits suicide, it's a national tragedy. But if a soldier dies, it's a short segment on the news, amirite?

Top Comment

Soldiers choose to risk their lives.
Gay people never chose to be gay- nobody would want that torment and ridicule.
Soldiers knew what they were getting into when they joined the army. They weren't abused to the point where they felt that they had to take their own life because they didn't feel safe.

that's because gay teens don't have friends
so they need the whole nation to feel sorry for them

soldiers are not completely outcast from society
ergo they don't need a nation crying and bitching for them

gays should die

A soldier risk his/her life fighting for his/her country and if people expect soldiers to die that's terrible. You expect them to serve and come home.

when it comes down to it, the person who commits suicide is the only one who can control it. Someone might make fun of a gay person but they didn't push them off a mountain and murdered them, no it was the person who is committing suicide decision. So honestly you can't blame anyone who a suicide, because it is really how much you can handle. Why don't you think ALL gay people commit suicide, because they can handle it. So honestly you shouldn't say the it is the insensitivity of peers.

and for your big deal on the synonyms about the word gay, can't you say now that even gay is an offensive term and that homosexual is the real correct term?

There should be celebrations of when a ** decides to do the most noble and honorable thing a fag could possibly do and end themselves. When Dr. Frankenrift had ** with a boy and told his dad he loved him, he realized a week after how horrible and destructive and lower than animalistic it is to be a gay, and put on a dress and leaped in front of a massive train speeding along. It spewed pieces of homo all over the place. And it was cool.

I am a suicidal lesbian (no joke, but I'm getting help), and I find it just awful how badly soldiers are treated. I don't care if you support the war or not, they are RISKING THEIR LIVES for YOUR rights, to protect people they haven't even met, and it's just cast aside. I agree, there needs to be more dedication to soldiers that have died, are MIA, and their families.

somewhere_I_belong somewhere_I_belong

I can kind of see both sides to this.
On one hand, gay teens shouldn't be any more important than a solider. But then again, many soldiers die every day, and that's sort of to be expected, you know? and suicide is different than being killed in battle, it's definitely sad that anyone would be pushed to the point of killing themselves. I do, however, think that soldiers should get more respect for risking their lives every day, because I know MOST people wouldn't be willing to do this. I feel like it would be more comforting for a parent or anyone to know that their son or daughter died while risking their lives for other people, than having a kid that killed themself for any reason. I'm not going to vote up or down on this one, because death is serious no matter what.

It's considered more of a tragedy because of the of the civil rights this particular type of bullying violates. That's something we as a national need to address and prevent (at least to a certain degree) to remain a somewhat civilized society. I mean people are still racist as all hell but it's not as accepted, that's the whole point. It's not as common to see people getting bullied for being black, etc. As far as soldiers go, if they made it seem like a tragedy every time one died then too many people would protest the war, it would be an inconvenience. War will
never go away, and soldiers will always die.

Soldiers (the undrafted ones) willing go into war with the possibility of being killed. A gay teen, or any teen at that, shouldn't have to go to a school that mentally/physically abuses them as much as to make them take their own lives. It's different because it shouldn't be happening in a place that supposed to be safe. Citizens who have done nothing wrong shouldn't feel the need to commit suicide because others can't accept them.

Did the gay child know that they were going to be bullied, teased, and even beatn because of something that they can't help? No. I'm not saying that gay people are better than soilders, it's just that the gay person shouldn't feel like there's no way out.

I don't agree with that. The death of a child rapist doesn't exactly deserve as much respect as a cop. And gay suicides are on the news longer because of stupid intolerance in the school system and it needs awareness. It is an expontentially growing problem in the country. War has been going on since the dawn of time, deaths of soldiers deserve respect an honor but its not helping the cause.

1) Soldiers are aware of the risks when they join the military, and there's not a huge group of people here who seek to demean, devalue, and restrict their lives based on the fact that they're in the military. I don't think anyone is unaffected by the news when soldiers die, but it shouldn't be a shock.

2) For some reason, particularly in the US, the "majority"(white, and male for the most part) seems to always need people to look down on and say "This group of people is not worthy of everything we have; we are better than them". Homosexuals are just the most recent in a long list of wronged groups including Native Americans, Africans, and of course women of any color all along... the only way that changes is by spreading awareness and truth, and fighting against the ignorance and oppression that these groups suffer. THAT'S why gay teens who commit suicide get big news stories; because we're trapped in a loop of wrong and unethical behavior due to the fact that majority can't ...

Commiting suicide is not a psychological disorder. Imagine being tormented everyday for something that you cannot change. Imagine living in a country that regularly boasts about freedom of speach and choice but when you state your opinion and choice you are beat down for it. When you are tormented everyday you lose hope and you start to become quieter. You lose the will to live because you don't feel acctepted and you feel like nobody cares if you live another day. That is NOT some psychological disorder. That was inflicted by prejudice cowards who do not take the time to stop and get to know the different people in the world. Try some empathy and compassion!

Gay people are people. soldiers are people. Death is death, but the reason it happens is different. Soliders deserve respect, but gays should be respected too. Homosexulas are always being bullied and spit on because of something they can't help. It's like saying black/asian/mexican people are stupid and deserve to die because they are different. Most gay people are civilians *I say most because of the whole recent thing about not letting gay people serve* and deserve to be safe within their own country that is SUPPOSED to be safe. Soldiers know that they are going to be shot at and possibly killed. It's more the governments fault for not protecting its citizens properly and just watch as people bully others. Soldiers know that they're getting into something, and are willing to be killed if nessecary to protect their nation. Gay people didn't sign up for that, and yes it IS their fault that they commited suicide, but I'm sure most of the people who said that they're overreacting and

As for the post, I do agree that soliders should be commemorated more. However the situations presented are completely different. The only reason that the suicides received such attention was because this is a growing problem in our nation that needs to be stopped. No one needs to accept everything that everyone does, but they absolutely need to show respect towards people. I swear I'm losing my faith in todays youth looking at these comments.

lets get this straight, bullying doesn't lead to suicide.
A person's mentality(not as in disorder or disease) leads to suicide. Every person in their life has been teased, and a lot of them get over it.

if bullying lead to suicide, looking at a lot of these comments on this site would lead me to think that half of the users on this site would having committed suicide by now, but the fact is that they haven't.

so there are many factors to suicide, not just in homosexuals.

A soldier dieing is for a cause, and as heartless as this sounds, people who commit suicide do it for what? themselves? So i personally believe a soldier deserves more attention. Just because a soldier dies(even if they are expected to die, which is utter nonsense) doesn't mean they don't deserve recognition, and even more than any suicide.
