Jamie Hubley was a 15 year old tenth grader from Ottawa, ON Canada. He committed suicide after being harassed constantly for his sexual orientation.

Be warned, this is fairly graphic as his actual suicide note is contained in the following links.

His actual tumblr: [url]catchmeblondy.tumblr.com/' target='_blank'>Link

Discuss.

That makes my heart hurt. As a longterm depressive, I can understand the drive to die, but I've managed to hang on. Part of it is knowing that depression changes the way you experience things, so everything seems crap although it really isn't.
As a dad with a 15 year-old son of my own, I grieve for his parents. I can't imagine any pain more intense than what they must be suffering right now.
Three lies:
There is no hope.
Things will never change.
There is no way out.

R.I.P to that kid, i have so many friends who have so many different sexual orientations, a lot of people will probably be thinking it was selfish of him to take his own life, but imagine what state of mind you would have to be in to do that? its ridiculous, the whole world needs to grow up and realise that people are going to have different sexual orientations and deal with.

It really ****es me off when I hear things like this. Why are kids today always in the mindset that being different is bad? We are all people. We all deserve love and respect. This stuff shouldn't be happening and it can only change, when we locate, and fix, the problem.
