I CAN NO LONGER STAND IT (Poem)


LGBT Suicide poem





I CAN NO LONGER STAND IT





(Sad poem)



(A/N: This is not me saying this; this reflects the bullied victims, especially children who are gay, bisexual, transgender, and straight kids who were thought to be gay)



No longer can I stand this

Your words cuts me deep

But it’s not just words

But how you treated me



I told my parents about you

They told me to suck it up

I told my school

They told me that boys will be boys

I can no longer stand it



I hope someone reads this

I hope they know what you did

You slammed my head in the locker

You said horrible things to me

I can no longer stand this



I was hoping this would stop

But every day was just the same

You find ways to hurt me more

I can never understand why



I heard that it’s the rite of passage

I must have deserved this pain

I hate myself thanks to you

I can no longer stand this



To my mom

I am sorry I have to do this

You said I should do my battles

But I am alone and there are many

I can no longer stand this



To my dad

I am sorry I have to do this

You said I should stand up to myself

I’m always on the ground broken and crying

I can no longer stand this



To my teacher

I am sorry I have to do this

You said nothing

I have felt even more alone

I can no longer stand this



To my church

I am sorry I have to do this

You damned me to hell

I already am in hell

I can no longer stand this



To my governor

I am sorry I have to do this

But you passed a law

Allowing people to hate me more

I can no longer stand this



To my friends

Or should I say my so called friends

Standing idly when they pounded my face

I never seen such cowardice

I can no longer stand this



To my bully

So you wanted me to die

I’m nothing more than dirt

I hope you like my blood on your hands

I can no longer stand this



To myself

I hate you

I can never understand why I am this way

I can never understand what I did

I can no longer stand this



Which shall I choose to end this

Maybe I can take the pills

But you’ll just pump them out

I would still suffer while you ignore me



Maybe I should hang myself

But I might botch it

I would still be beaten mercilessly

I will still suffer while you ignore me



Maybe I should stab myself

But that would take too long

You would still ignore my pain

I will still suffer while you ignore me



Maybe I should jump off the roof

It would be quick

So it is settled

I hope you’re listening

I hope you’ll notice my pain







(Maybe it’s time we stop treating bullying as if it’s just something to live with. Enough is enough, stop ignoring their pain and stop the bullies. Too many blood have been spilled, too many people have blood on their hands, and too many voices have gone unheard)

Bully Trailer (Documentary 2012)



This is a documentary about bullying. I'm happy now that someone has decided to stand up and say, "Enough, our children shouldn't be bullied, and we need to seriously deal with the bullies or we will lose our kids."


I am sad for the kids getting bullied. No one deserves this and no one should ever have to go through this. What angers me are two things:

1) This film is Rated R. Seriously? You want to make it a rated R instead of Rated PG 13. the way i see it, it wasn't about protecting children, it was about doing exactly what we're fighting against; to face the problems of bullying and to do something about it instead of the stupid, "Boys will be boys" crap. Honestly, the schools are not a place where kids can just beat each other up or call each other names, it's a place of education. What are we trying to do, create little ogres or civilized human beings?

2) people who thinks the bullied victims are weak. Honestly, they're not weak, they're suffering because of people who thinks it's ok to bully one another. I don't want to hear, "They have to be toughened up to survive." Bullying kids to the point of suicide is not toughening them up, that's murder. You're ignorant and have no worries about having your hands covered in blood. Kids who are LGBT are never allowed to be open, they are always hated by these hateful people just for being human, and they're dying because of the hate. Where exactly does this look acceptable? How does this "toughen" kids up?

I survived the bullying and teasing for years in my high school, but toughened up? No, i learned that students are nothing but mindless ogres who would beat their chest and act like brainless monsters. Seriously, where do you want this society to head to? Barren waste land where everyone just slaughters for no reason and just grunt and vomit hate? Or do you want us to create a society where we're civilized human beings with high education and no violence?



Stop the hate, stop the bullying, stop being ogres.

Wanda Sykes on gay marriage (Closed-captioned)

Complaint hotline Call







Operator: Good afternoon, you reached the complaint hotline, what is your complaint? Oh you have a complaint about having a next door gay couple? What is the problem? They disgust you?



What would like me to do about it? I’m sorry, we cannot evict a couple just because they disgust you. It’s not our policy to remove people based on personal disgust.



 If you like, we can offer you a place to live that will fit your needs. You refuse to move? Well, I’m sorry, I cannot remove them.



Is there anything they did that is wrong?  You just find them kissing and holding hands in public upsetting to you. Well that is not a logical reason to evict them. There are straight couples that hold hands and kiss in public too. Would you please define normal? Sorry, but that is mainly common, it’s really not different of course.



You fear that they’ll corrupt you, turn you gay, destroy family values? They’ve been living in your area for 15 years. Were there any changes for all those years?



You think that AIDs are going to spread? Would you like me to give you factual information regarding diseases like HIV, AIDs and STDs? Please do not yell at me, I’m only trying to help. You do realize that the HIV infection have been slowing down so far. Also, AIDs are found in every person infected regardless of their sexuality.



Please do not raise your voice at me, I’ve been very informative and helpful. My manager? You wish to speak to my manager? Ok, I’ll give you his number.

I guess it doesn't matter


I guess it doesn't matter



(Song about bullying and discrimination)





I turn my head up to the sky

A child lies in my arms

They are cold and still

They will fade away like ash



I dig up a grave

There lies a boy

Took his life because he is not like you



I guess it doesn’t even matter



Chorus



Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter



I dig up a grave

There lies a girl

Took her life because she’s not like you

I guess it’s wrong to be who we are

I guess it doesn’t even matter



Let’s just throw out our books

I guess the school is just a battlefield

Parents shuns us away with hate

What goes on in their mind

I guess it doesn’t even matter



Chorus



Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter



We cannot change who we are

Inside it tears us apart

All the hate is just too much

All that will be left is death



Children lie in their grave

Alone and unloved

Unwanted and hated

All because they’re different



I guess it doesn’t even matter



Chorus



Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter



Why do our parents move us aside

Why does our school close their eyes?

Why do they allow us to be hurt

Why do they want us to be gone

I guess it doesn’t even matter



Chorus



Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter



I turn my head up to the sky

A child lies in my arms

They are cold and still

They will fade away like ash



I guess this is where our society wants us to go

I guess they want us all to vanish

Make the world cold and dead like them

Nothing to love or grow, like their heart

I guess it doesn’t even matter



Chorus



Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter

Doesn’t even matter

(To the parents, to the students, to the school, think about what your action does. Stop the hate.)

Enough is enough.

Quotes by the people for equality


Quotes by the people for equality





“No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don’t love anybody.” ~ Rita Mae Brown



“It’s not a matter of gay or straight, it’s just a question of love.” Laurent, just a question of love



“Homosexuality is a sin. Homosexuals are doomed to spend eternity in hell. If they wanted to change, they could be healed of their evil ways. If they would turn away from temptation, they could be normal again if only they would try and try harder if it doesn't work. These are all the things I said to my son Bobby when I found out he was gay.” ~ Mary Griffith, prayers for Bobby



“Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other form of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and their personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all to easily to victimize the next minority.” ~ Coretta Scott King



“I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people. ... But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.' I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream, to make room at the table of brotherhood and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people." ~ Coretta Scott King



“Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, whether by marriage or civil union. A constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages is a form of gay bashing and it would do nothing at all to protect traditional marriage.” ~ Coretta Scott King



“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.” ~ Harvey Milk



“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.” ~ President Abraham Lincoln.



“Some things are just hard to say. You say I’m too young, that it’s just a phase, we’ll catch AIDs, and everything!” ~ Jamie, Beautiful Thing\



“These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of. They go on and on with all this bullshit about ‘sanctity’ – Don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everyone the chance to have the life they want. ~ Clint Eastwood.



“It’s always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of homosexuality. It’s like disapproving of rain.” Francis Maude



“You don’t have to be gay to be a supporter you just have to be human.” ~ Daniel Radcliffe

Just A Question of Love part 5 7 (English Subtitles)



The important thing parents must understand is this, there is nothing wrong with your kidsbeing gay, bi, or transgender.

LGBT Poetry four


LGBT Poetry four





They say the horrible names

They say untruthful things

They don’t know who I am

They don’t see me



I want you to see who I am

Beyond the color of my skin

Beyond whom I’m attracted to

Beyond where I was born



In the midst of the forest

Many secrets are hidden

Inside a shell is something to see

Who I am is more than you see



I fall through the hole

Burying inside the pain

You stand there and judge

You don’t even know my name



Some kid who sits alone

You thinks he’s a loser

Some boy who cries

You think he’s a wuss



Some girl who’s shy

You think she’s weak

Some girl who’s outspoken

You think she’s not a woman



All the hatred you have for us

It hinders your intellect

It clouds your mind

You will not learn this way



All the fear you have of us

It blinds you from reality

You believe without knowing

You cannot understand if you fear us



All the anger you have of us

It builds on false beliefs

You think we’re a threat

But it’s you who’s the threat.



All those suffering we have

You push it on us

You do not realize it

You are the cause of suffering



As master Yoda has once said

All that leads to the dark side

As Lady Gaga has said

We’re born this way



History yet again repeats itself

Life simply does not learn once but twice

How can we go on if your eyes are closed?

It is foolish once you learn

We’re all human you and I.



Fires ravishes the earth

Water washes away the fire

Wind blows away the water

Water is covered in dirt



All of that is what hatred does

Once we learn that love is not dead

All can be calm after the storm

What does hate give us?



I see what hatred and lies can do

So many young lives are gone

Why do you desire blood on your hands?

You are the source of suffering



Rains fall after another one dies

Bullying leads to pain and misery

Who I am is never known

Those who hurt me do not care



Who would be there to reach out their hand?

Who would be there to see me?

Let us wash away the hate

Let us show the world what love can do



Enough of the hates and your lies

Enough of the suffering and the anger

We do not wish to fade into the shadows

We will not comply to your ideals



We are who we are

Who I am is who I am

Let us not change for their lies

Let us change the hate to love

Let us all live

To all who suffered,

Live.

What Homosexuality Is Not

"The (Don't Say) Gay Song" - The Lazy Song Parody



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/16/tennessee-dont-say-gay-bill-advances_n_1282038.html?ir=Education

Apparently some people try to make the word "Gay" sound horrible and shouldn't be said. What, did the word "Gay" is going to make men pop out from the corners of the classrooms in leather and feathers? Or did you think that it'll go away? Seriously, this is supposed to be a school for learning, not a bloody battlefield.

It Does Get Better - The L Project (Signed and Subtitled)



I choose this video because i am hearing impaired. Also, i decide to bring this so i can help bring awareness and help stop the bullying in schools!

Two gay dads or two lesbian moms


Two gay dads or two lesbian moms





What Rick Santorum thinks they do



“They are having anal sex daily, indoctrinating kids, and destroying family values and traditional marriage.”



What Rick Santorum thinks they are



“They are worse than convicts, they’re not beneficial to society, they are destroying traditional marriage, and he thinks they are going to hurt the US Military.”



What NOM thinks they do



“Bringing the issue into their life, making the government punish them, making them afraid, making their kids learn about gay marriage, and making them have no freedom.”



What Westboro Baptist Church thinks they do



“They are having lots and lots of sex, dooming nation, and dying of AIDs.”



What one million moms thinks they do



“They are indoctrinating children, corrupting society, enforcing their ‘lifestyle’ on to people.”



What youtube homophobes thinks they do



“They are flaunting their gayness, shoving their lifestyle down people’s throat, and corrupting children.”



What they say they’re concerned about



“They can’t have babies, they’ll spread diseases, they’re dangerous, they’re an abomination, they’ll destroy nation, they’ll make the human race go extinct, what they’ll do to children, they’ll make them all gay.”



What they’re really concerned about



“Sexual activity.”



What they really do



“Do dishes, Mow lawns, wash their car, help out a friend or a neighbor, help their kids with their homework, take them to school, participate in activities together or with their kids, paying bills, paying their taxes, go to hospital or dentist, go to work, buying groceries, watching movies, make jokes and play games, making plans for events with their family, visiting their relatives for the holidays, reading their kids bedtime stories, relaxing together, use computers, make photos or videos, and sleep.”



Wow, that is so intimidating. They’re no different from any other family. A person’s sexuality has nothing to do with parenting, marriage, or being in the military. They’re just as outstanding productive members of society as any straight people. Get it together and stop hating.

XELLE - Invincible - Official Music Video

protect the students or allow the students to be bullied, hmm....

decisions, decisions, let me help you. When children are being bullied, it's important that we put and end to it. What is this nonesense about the gay activists? This is about keeping children from bullying one another, not "teaching kids to be gay." If you think a school should not stop bullies, then you're the problem. http://news.yahoo.com/minn-school-board-ends-policy-blamed-bullying-023457513.html
