Given that part of his being gay was to dress feminine, I can’t help but think there was confusion about feelings and terms. Males dressing feminine is usually associated with transgenderism. I have to wonder if he made the simplistic inference that if he wanted to do more feminine things, he had to be gay, missing the nuances and deeper understanding an adult would have.
This of course in no way excuses his bullies. I’m still shocked that 3rd graders drove a classmate to suicide in just 4 days. I remember being picked on, but the level of bullying needed for that in such young kids is shocking.
Let’s pray for the boy’s family as they deal with the tragedy, the boy’s bullies that they may never be so hateful ever again, and for the boy to rest with God.
