Teens who identify as gay more likely to commit suicide

The study found no increased suicide risk in teens who saw themselves as heterosexual, average age 16, regardless whether they reported same-sex attraction, fantasy or behaviour. But when kids identified themselves as GLB, then their risk for suicide attempts went up -- 2.2 times higher than heterosexuals.

And no, I'm not going to change my beliefs about homosexual behaviour just to make some kids feel better. If a person attributes their depression to society's disapproval of their behaviour, this is the problem. You don't need to have people like what you're doing to be happy.

I'm Catholic and a pro-life activist. A lot of people disapprove of what I do, and I don't care.
