Out of sight, out of mind

Let’s say you have a program called "Suicide Prevention Among Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Individuals", and some government nitwit tells you to remove the words "gay", "lesbian", "bisexual", and "transgender" under threat of having your funding cut if you refuse. What are you left with? A program focused on certain people with a name that isn’t. Maybe they’re hoping fewer LGBT folks will show up for help & counseling and instead stay home and quietly off themselves.

  1. I wish most people would stay home and quietly off themselves – I see no reason to bring gender or sexual orientation into the picture.


  2. If you don’t care whether or not people are offing themselves, why does it matter if gender or sexual orientation is involved? 🙂
