This is hard reading.

Really, really hard reading.

It was posted at, and it’s from a gay teen, aged 16, named Steven, who attempted suicide. He survived.

If you’re a gay reader and you were bullied in high school, you may find yourself transported back in time. If you’re not a gay reader…try.

There’s extensive profanity in the note, which will probably be more of a cause for concern for conservative Christian readers than the child’s pain and anguish, because much of conservative Christian morality is inherently broken and dehumanizing.

But please read it. All of it.
