It’s Like They’re Standing in the Middle of a Thunderstorm, Reporting on the Sighting of a Seventh Raindrop

Another reference, this one at Salon.com who you’d think might know better, to “the rising number of gay suicides”. After all, if the media hasn’t been covering it, it must not have been happening.

The suicides of gay teens being reported in the media are a drop in the bucket. They are a tiny fraction of the hundreds of gay teens who commit suicide every month. I have yet to see this simple, easily researchable fact mentioned in any of the stories.
