Bullying is the issue

As a gay high school student, my experience of bullying and harassment has been very minimal. I have not experienced any physical harm from bullying, but I have been a victim of verbal harassment because of my sexuality.

I have been called (an epithet demeaning to LGBT individuals) and endured many rude comments about being gay. But I have never been bullied to the point of being suicidal or wanting to bring a gun to school.

Many more high school students are harassed for many reasons; bullying is an issue at schools all over the globe.

As a gay student, I believe we should address the bullying of all students, not just LGBT students.
