I find myself at a loss for words. I’m ashamed that my first reaction as the video played was to question the statistics that claimed that 50% (1500 out of 3280) of homeless youths were LGBT. I’ve seen too many real cases of falsified statistics over the years. The shame comes from the fact that it doesn’t fucking matter! Even if there are only 150 LGBT kids on the street instead of 1500, that’s 150 too much (on top of the other 3000 too many).
Any society that allows parents to throw their children away like this has very little right to call itself a just society. When that same society refuses to stand up and take care of every last one of those thrown out kids has no right to expect to continue intact.
I’m at a loss…
Rayne: Responsible Adults DO NOT Leave Children on the Streets:
@dweaver999 Someone once said 75% of all statistics are made up. Or was it 50%? Who knows? Regardless, I’m with you. LGBT or not, a society that allows children to live on the street for any reason needs to reevaluate its morals.
