On June 2nd, Brandon Eizares stared at his cell phone after receiving threatening texts from a bully at his home in El Paso, Texas. Brandon, a Sophomore, came out of the closet in 2010 and continued to be bullied and taunted by “classmates” until he saw no hope.
For Brandon, he could not see that “It Gets Better.” Every time I hear about a teenager who commits suicide because of bullying I cry, I cry because no matter how much I shout and scream – open my heart – and blog about how much it gets better – someone like Brandon misses the message.
I was bullied a lot growing up, and not just for being gay. I was bullied for tons of reasons, and from “peers” in school and in my neighborhood who were destined to be delinquents in life. They were the biggest assholes on the face of the planet, and they grew up still being assholes – but disappeared into the black hole that idiots like them disappear into in the real world. They spit on me, threw things at me, and threatened me – it was nightmarish and made me dread getting up in the morning to go to school.
If you are a gay, lesbian, bisexual – or just a confused kid who is being bullied in school, you DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE THE ABUSE! First things first, you are too young to be ending your life based on the ignorant existence of punk asses that are so scared of what they see in themselves, that they project their hate onto other people. Secondly, if you believe that you are ALL ALONE you are sadly mistaken, because your not. There are hundreds of thousands of people who are advocates for you as a gay, lesbian, bisexual or confused person and they do NOT WANT TO SEE YOU HURTING.
Ignore the politicians and their hate speech, ignore the anti-gay comments that they throw at you, and BE PROUD OF HOW BEAUTIFUL AND SPECIAL YOU ARE! Then, pick up the phone and call “The Trevor Project,” and talk to someone who cares! Talk to someone who can be your friend, and help you through this! DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT end your life because of some stupid assholes that want to terrorize you.
YOUR LIFE IS WORTH LIVING – DO NOT GIVE UP – CALL THE TREVOR PROJECT!
I’m sorry that I failed you Brandon, but please know this – I love all of my GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, & CONFUSED BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND YOU HAVE A FRIEND RIGHT HERE WITH ME!
Don’t Give Up, It Gets Better!
I Love You,
Jake A. Wheat
