Cowgirl, it is a difficult thing to understand if you have never been bullied. At a very fragile time in everyone's life, when they are just starting to figure out who they are, being bullied either physically or emotionally can be very shattering to a person's self confidence. 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.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I was very disappointed when the word fag started being used for homosexual. I have and still do call cigarettes "fags". I also feel bad for all the girls I've known named Gay or people who can still be happy and gay. After all is said and done, its only a word with bad intent behind it. If the same words are said "I'm just so gay about finally having a fag" the meaning should be innocuous.
I didn't wear purple because I didn't know about it. I do agree more needs to be addressed on the whole bullying issue, rather than on a select group. That said, as long as the word is out, that being mean little *******s won't be tolerated in the schools, who its aimed at shouldn't matter.
Like a movie star, I believe any publicity is good publicity.

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..

So see, it was never a choice. You didnt sit at your house one day and say "Hmm. I think I'd like to have a wife one day. Nah, I think guys sound better".

I've been apathetic towards gender from the beginning as well. I had a HUGE crush on Xena Warrior Princess as a kid. And Ozzy. My barbies had girlfriends and ken was having a love affair with...other ken. I didn't even know what gay WAS. But my little queer 5 year old self fit the bill.

So it's not a choice. If it were, you'd be insane to choose the thing that gets you harrassed, beaten up, mistreated, etc. Just like you didnt make a conscious choice to be straight, I never made a conscious choice to be non-straight.
Otherwise, Im sure they would stop being gay to stop the bullying.

You can't choose to be gay. I'm not gay but its not a choice you make. Its not something you wake up one day and say, "Oh I think I'm going to turn gay today." Its something that you're born with, that you always know is there. That makes you feel differnet from other people. The same way that straight people don't choose to be straight. Its not a consicoius decsion. Its just something in you that tells you who you're going to like. Its like being born either a girl of a boy, its not something you can decide.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Sure GreyRay, that is true.
But there's also cases where there was no circumstances that would "turn" one gay. Same with gender identity, etc.

Yes sometimes there are factors that may influence. But it also happens without any extenuating circumstances.
Not all members of the lgbt community are victims of some sort and not all victims become lgbt. Sure it happens but theres no positive and definite causation. Just some correlation as well as incidences.
