Don't say "LGBT" when you "LGBT." It ought to be LGBTQ. Some of us don't like alphabet soup to begin with, and the four letter version is too confining.
Hey, BJ. Welcome, and hello to you as well. Glad you could join us.
Hi BJ. I provided a welcome on your comments, but also welcome here. How's life in TN?
Hey everyone I'm new and wanted to say hi!
@Silent Biped, i think that teenagers who are already feeling suicidal are the ones that try to get help, you know, to cure themselves, i never heard of a completely mentally and emotionally sound person going to get therapy, maybe some do but significantly lower than not, but, it could also be caused im assuming by the realisation that the treatment or "medication" isn't working and also a fear of disappointing the people who put them there in the first place, no doubt they are feeling a lot of social pressure and internal pressure, i think minorities tend to feel a higher social pressure, i think so because majorities make stereotypes about them and look down on them, they might feel a little more pressured, yeah...well, as always religion probably serves to make them feel worthless and sinful without God, it puts the burden on them to just "fix" things which aren't even broken, it gives you the burden of getting better and places God in the victims seat, he's the one that needs the attention and the care at your expense, ironic, anyways, this is just what i assume, also, being black and latinos were kind of shoved into the lower class by whites, though a number of them have made it out, the poverty cycle is a hard one to break, while once slaves to white masters they're now slaves to the religion that was forced upon them so violently in the past
when you call a transgender person by the wrong pronouns and they say it's okay, it's probably not okay, also, if they tell you what name they want to be called and then tell you their birth name, don't ask what they want to be called, just assume it's the name they asked you to call them in the first place
Does religious counseling of gay youth lead to increased suicide risk? Study suggests exactly that. The study also seems to suggest that would be black LGB teenagers. Looks like trans youth not included in this study.
"Of individuals who attempted suicide, 23% sought mental health or medical treatment and 14% sought religious or spiritual treatment prior to the suicide attempt. Black and Latino LGBs were underrepresented in mental health or medical treatment and Black LGBs were overrepresented in religious or spiritual treatment. Seeking mental health or medical treatment was not associated with lower odds of a suicide attempt; seeking religious or spiritual treatment was associated with higher odds of a suicide attempt."
