Before anyone goes any further, this isn't me "gay bashing" or has anything to do with my personal opinion on homosexuality.
My question is this: Why did it take gay kids getting bullied to bring bullying in to the lime light? Why are we (society) all about giving kids a haven and protecting them if they are gay and being bullied, but seem to have left all the other kids out in the cold? Bullying has been a long time issue, over the last couple decades there are many incidents of kids taking extreme measures as a result of being bullied...killing themselves or others. So why is it NOW that we pay attention? What does sexuality have to do with it? Bullying is wrong no matter WHY its being done.
