LGBT apologists like to play the suicide card. That's their trump card. They claim that the (alleged) social stigmatization of the LGBT community is responsible for higher suicide rates in that demographic group. I'd like to make a couple of brief observations:
i) If it were true, shouldn't that be a general principle that's applicable to other stigmatized groups? For instance, consider culture warriors. A short list would include Mike Adams, Ryan Anderson, Bill Bennett, Michael Brown, Joe Carter, James Dobson, David French, Robert Gagnon, Mark Levin, John MacArthur, Michael Medved, Albert Mohler, Tony Perkins, Dennis Prager, Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, Doug Wilson, &c.
This list could be easily extended. Now, these are people who are stigmatized by the liberal establishment. Many people despise them. I'm sure lots of them receive truckloads of hate-mail.
Does that make them suicidal?
ii) Assuming, for the sake of argument, that this is a generally valid principle, why aren't pressure groups which blame high rates of suicide in the LGBT community on social hostility be concerned about how they are driving culture warriors to commit suicide by constant vilification?
If they really care about people, if they think "hate speech" is a catalyst for suicide, why do they demonize culture warriors? Are they trying to drive them over the edge?
