I'm glad I never lived in the dorms. Some days my fellow humans make me cry...

Rutgers, Friends and Family of Tyler Clementi Mourn Suicide

just because I didn't kill myself, doesn't mean I didn't feel like I was dying

This type of shit is unusual in its absence, not in its presence. It's the bullying that all gay, bi and trans kids go through, even now. More if they're fat and/or geek - it's additive, not either/or.

Most turn it inward. Many die by their own hand. Some turn it outward.

From a certain non-white focused community:

Does it make me sound raceist that I don't like white people? I have my reasons not to like them....

God, damn, this just pisses me off. People rag and rag on whites for stereotypes, power games, bigotry, and all that shit, but get lumped into one great big "them" category by ethnic minorities. Hypocrite much?

Excuse the fuck out of me for not having been born with your special cross to bear, bitch! Nevermind that I have my own, including asswipes like you who just take one look at me and assume I somehow have some great privilege and advantage because I'm white.

If I have this great white privilege, where's my college degree, house in the suburbs that I own, car less than 5 years old, fat stock portfolio, and 6 figure income? Seriously, if I were a young, able bodied white male, from a rich family, I might be said to have "white privilege". But that's not me.

Yeah, some folks in some areas are assholes, judging people by their skin color, but not everyone does that everywhere. So get off the damned persecuted minority cross, we need the wood!

Seriously, if you don't like racism, stereotypes and bigotry, don't practice them yourself. What's so fucking hard about that?
