Source: P13fox

I feel I have to share this story. No parent should have to bury their kid.

2. And the tragedy takes on another layer with this:

>>McCalip was transgender and "struggling with desire to live life as a woman," Anderson said. The victim tried changing their name to Lucia and was bullied for many years in school, but Anderson said she wasn’t aware of any suicidal thoughts by her child, WLS-TV reports.<<

wordlessly,
Bright

7. Very sad story

When will parents/people wake up and begin to actually talk to each other? I wonder....





Yes, we all need to look, listen and communicate, maybe if we do, we can prevent the pain and suffering of human beings on this earth. Maybe if we do, the suicide count in this nation will decrease.

10. Mother misgenders trans child, blames a fucking tree for the entirely predictable outcome.

The problem here isn't how the kid poisoned herself (there are dozens of things in any house that will do the job,) it's that her supposedly loving mother won't use her name or accept her identity even over her literal dead body. That's why she's dead, the mechanics of how she did it are almost entirely beside the point.

12. Damn, good catch. I glossed right over that part

The mother still refers to her as her son.
