So, I see this little link pop on Facebook: Another Victim Bites the Dust
Well, I just have one thing to say to Mr. Fales about that. FUCK. YOU. ASSHOLE!
Mr. Fales has probably never in his life felt the deep depression that precedes suicide. And if he has I think he has quickly forgotten that when someone is in that state there is no rational thought at all. I have been there many times in my life. I do not seek help during those times because I'm oblivious to it. EVEN if the god damn suicide hot-line is staring me in the face! And I can, as well as the next person, put on a cheery happy face and laugh and have fun while I'm secretly planning my suicide attempt. It's real, it's irrational and there is no other way of thinking while in that state. So, people who get on their high horse such as Mr. Fales just adds the problem and drives people who get that way into further despair.
And one more thing that I think Mr. Fales doesn't understand is that there is, even in this day and age, a massive stigma associated with depression and other mental illnesses. That is one of the reasons I never sought professional help during my moments of rationality and why I still don't seek it.
I don't know what the hell Mr. Fales thinks he is doing claiming that the vigil has anything to do with politics and creating an enemy, and then that stupid statement he made about it being "...narcissistic “Look at me, I’m gay!” when he uses the Mormon church and his sexuality as the basis for his bloody career. Holy shit, that kid really needs a kick in the ass!
UPDATE (26 July 2010): Words from the organizer of the vigil, Eric Ethington.
