If they are being constantly berated at school and get no support from home, then they have nothing to make themselves feel happy or even comfortable, then just getting out of bed in the morning can be almost impossible because you know that you have to face another day of constant emotional beatings. It's hard.
I see the wearing purple thing very similar to wearing pink for breast cancer awareness. It doesn't make any of the other cancers less important, it is just trying to really open people's eyes to the struggle of some people.
I been bullied a lot. To the fact I been choke by this bully, so I know how it feels. I really know how it feels, but I never thought killing myself would be better. The whole 5th grade year I was bullied. So I know.... it's very hard. But if your being bullied over the gay fact, I fyou fele bad for being gay. Then why are you? I just don't get that, I'm straight so..
