Unacceptable Circumstances - Bullies Shouldn't Win

RIP Frank Wolf

I'm devastated. One of the people my daughter follows on Tumblr committed suicide. My daughter loved him, and thought he was wonderful. He was so cute and adorable. This note that he held up is so true. He was unique and beautiful. Frank Wolf was not your usual, boring kid. He had something special and people tried to squash that specialness.

I wish society would stop trying to make everyone conform. So what if Tom Daley is gay or that Anderson Cooper likes guys. It's Pink's business if she's straight, bi, or gay. Ricky Martin should be able to love who ever the hell he wants. And for the most part, these celebrities are able to get away with nonconformity, but regular people, non-celebrities feel the pressure to fit in.

Acceptance is crucial for development of our society. The idiot right-wingers will take acceptance to extremes, saying that if we accept people like Frank Wolf who liked to dress up as Zelda characters that society will fall. They are wrong. The world had hurricanes, tornados, volcanos, the ice age, earthquakes and wind storms long before Anderson Cooper slept with a guy. Tom Daley didn't ruin the fabric of our society and the gay guy who lives down the street from you isn't causing the crime in your neighborhood.

Gays and Lesbians aren't evil. I wish those people who hated gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people could see that their hate is what is making the world bad. Bullying others does nothing to please God. If you want to make the world a better place, love is the answer. So what if someone is different, love them. Love the cross-dresser and the the guy in a suit. Love is what makes the world a better place, not misguided morals that degrade everyone, including those judging.

RIP Frank Wolf
