I'm lovin' it:
This one is sure to give the religious right the vapors. Because the religious right thinks children need to be protected—not from bullying, not from hate, not from bigotry or intolerance. They're totes fine with kids being bullied to death for being gay, they oppose anti-bullying programs, they encourage parents to reject their gay kids. Which literally kills gay kids...
Gay young adults who reported higher levels of family rejection during adolescence were more than 8 times more likely to report having attempted suicide, nearly 6 times more likely to report high levels of depression, and 3.4 times more likely to use illegal drugs or having engaged in unprotected sexual intercourse, compared with peers from families that reported no or low levels of family rejection.
But there's one thing the religious right does want to protect children from: f-bombs. F-bombs and access to affordable health care. Because their priorities are, in a word, fucked. Via JMG.
