GAY STUFF: Cameron McWilliams (pt. III)

Remember when I said that here was precious little blogged about the death of Cameron McWilliams???

If you go to Google and search for Cameron McWilliams... I am the sixth link. There are three news stories (all almost identical) and two blogs ahead of me.

Really, guys. Really? Does no one care?

I guess we care less when we do it to ourselves than when others do it to us. It's been a while since I've read any studies -- but they say that gay and lesbian youth are two to three times more likely to commit suicide.

Is this a problem, as the world becomes more "accepting," that we are going to stop forgetting? To the point that a ten year old hanging himself is just passe and to be ignored by the world?

There are still battles to be won, folks.

Update: I am now the THIRD link.

I can hardly believe it.

I mean, I've posted all of three times, and I'm the third most likely candidate you'll want to read if you're reading about this kid?

That's freaking awful.
