Suicide Rate 1400% Higher in LGBTI Population
When a public servant, Catherine Branson, at the head of an Australian Federal Government department, the Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (AHRC), releases a public statement to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), why I am not surprised that she characterises us fags, dykes and trannies as being intrinsically defective? To hold up that black-boxed lie that we are ‘14 times‘ more likely to attempt suicide is not only a grandiose concoction made in the absence of empirical evidence, it also lends itself to that nasty vibe that we are fully sick fuckers in desperate need of ‘special’ protection. And so, voila! The very same people who misrepresent us as forever close to the edge of madness if not death itself will happily oversee a vulnerability legal regime to protect us from, well, ‘them’.
Yup, it truly is a queer world…
Update: If you can cook up the fattest suicide statistics that you could possibly think of, and beat to a pulp anyone who would even dare to suggest that three times the risk is not 14 times the attempt, then ramping up the crap catcher to max, to squeeze in the newly discovered ‘suicide gene,’ barely seems like even a walk in the park. And so, scientists do seem to be getting closer and closer to working out what defective drivel along the DNA duck trail to nowhere is arcing out. Herein, their search could lead to discovering the duality of brokenness, that is, the cohabitation of psycho-suicidal-pathology and overt pewf tendencies. Are we possibly on the verge of, at once, eliminating suicide and pewfery,with just a dab hand and a very sharp scalpel…?
