Forum should be more careful

In response to “Appeals court ruling on Prop 8 appalling”:

While reading the online version of The Forum, I was appalled to see such a small-minded opinion piece. Sure, we may all have differences in opinion, but shouldn’t equality be, well, equal? In a time when youth suicide is at an all-time high, one should be careful what they publish.

What if a kid struggling with his identity saw that opinion piece and killed himself or herself afterward because they thought they were “abnormal?” Shame on you, Forum, for spreading hatred through your website. I’m ashamed to say I read The Forum. And perhaps after this, I will not.

Watch what you publish because it can affect kids, whether you think it will or not.
