Instead of pretending helplessness, then demonizing the messenger, to avoid facing the truth, do a Google search to me prove otherwise. The game of censor by demonizing the messenger has reached the end of its effectiveness. Here is an another link based own these search parameters; suicide rates rise among gay youth. This link is from the LGB community. Unless they are doctoring their own studies, they confirm many aspects of the first reference and offer more detail, without any fear of PC attack, since they are under the wing of bias.
I posted this not to make fun, or point the finger of blame, but because suicide is a tragic thing. It is more important than political affiliation or blind devotion to political traditions. It is not about sweeping things under the rug and censoring the truth to maintain a political agenda.
Between the two studies, they show male suicide among the youth has increased four fold over the last 60 years. The first study attributes this to social pressure and lack of coping skills. If social and peer pressures, and lack of coping skills are the given explanation, then what specific set of peer pressures and lack of coping skills explains the significant rise in male suicide?
What type of peer pressure has been placed on males, over the past 60 years, which also limits their adaption, and which political party started and continues to preach this? I will answer this with a question. Doesn't the left assume the traditional male of 60 years ago is source of evil, and wouldn't the left prefer the modern male child play with dolls and be an emotional wreck who has no identity, as a traditional male; when males had a low suicide rate?
As an extrapolation of the two studies, say you were a gay male (redundant) and you feel peer pressure about being gay. This is sales pitched from the left. This can't be as bad as 60 years ago, or else there would not have been any need to liberate the gays, so it is worse now. Unless the goal was to make things worse for the gays.
But also, since gay men are attracted to other males; straight and/or gay, and healthy traditional males who able are able to cope, are considered evil based on the philosophy of the left, the gays have fewer places to learn to cope. They are caged in on all sides with the only path allowed by the left making it harder to cope. They live in world that the left has made worse for them; left says more peer pressure, and that which they love is call the evil sex; male, by the left. One would expect higher suicides for gays, which is, sadly, the case.
The left is not the friend of the gays, since it demonizes your object of desire and love and has added extra stressors, since they claim this is the worse of times in terms of your stress. This was all done to divide people, irrationally, for political gain. The ends justify the means so the suicide becomes a prop they try not to address, since they need this prop.
