I felt pretty sick when I saw the shot of his face turning red and purple. I think the snarky comments on viral death trying to make light of it all are disgusting and completely disrespectful.

I understand suicide, but I don't understand the mentality behind these kinds of suicide shows. The only answers I can come up with are either illogical, or frightening.

Yeah he was. I could care less what your opinion is on suicide, it's painful to think of the amount of anguish one needs to be going through to wanna stop living. I imagine having Asperger syndrome made a huge impact. By what I've read, social interaction is extremely difficult for them and there's no one real treatment. Just behavioral therapy.

I'm devastated by this, and all the other suicides lately particularly related to gay bullying. When is it going to stop!

I have hope gay discrimination will be mostly gone with the next generation of kids. Like the civil rights movement, it's easy to talk to our grandparents and be amazed at the racism...but there will always still be some left. It will be like that for the gay rights movement as well.

Tell me about it. I live in Utah which is land of the Mormons. And lets just say there have been alot of suicides lately of boys who were gay and also Mormon. There was a huge protest just the other week.

Folks, please refrain from posting links to disturbing content. (any media depicting death, mutilation, etc.)

This isn't coming from the mods, this is coming straight from the administrators.
The links have been removed.
No more please. If you have questions regarding what's "disturbing", ask someone... but you shouldn't have to.
