Betty, I just get a little tickle out of the troll. First she jumps in with an opinion. Then she can't stand the heat or is tired of the thread and, instead of deleting posts, it's things like make it stop. It's potty language, and now this. I guess we wouldn't be "bullying her" if we agreed with her. LOL. Sigh.

Lisa it's so interesting YOU bring up bullying and suicide. From Wiki: "The Suicide Prevention Resource Center synthesized these studies and estimated that between 30 and 40% of LGB youth, depending on age , have attempted suicide. Report of the Secretary's Task Force on Youth Suicide, found that LGBT youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide than other young people. This higher prevalence of suicidal ideation and overall mental health problems among gay teenagers compared to their heterosexual peers has been attributed to Minority Stress"
