Sex - either of the two main categories (male and female) species are devided on the bases of reproduction organs.

Gender - The social and cultural differences of being male or female. Bullying A typical elementary teacher or student hears anti-gay slurs every day, in the halls, in classrooms, in the staff room.
Nine out of ten transgender students, six out of ten LGB students, and three out of ten straight students were verbally harassed because of their expression of gender.
Three-quarters of LGBTQ students and 95% of transgender students felt unsafe at school, compared to one-fifth of straight students.
Over half of LGBTQ students did not feel accepted at school, and almost half felt they could not be themselves, compared to one-fifth of straight students.
25 per cent of LGBTQ students indicated being physically harassed due to their sexual orientation, compared to eight per cent of non-LGBTQ students.
31 per cent of LGBTQ students reported personal harassment on the internet or via text messaging, compared to eight per cent of non-LGBTQ students.
73 per cent of LGBTQ students reported they felt unsafe at school, compared to 20 per cent who did not.
51 per cent of LGBTQ students reported they did not feel accepted at school, compared to 19 per cent of non-LGBTQ students
85 per cent of LGBTQ students reported being verbally harassed at school in the past year because of their sexual orientation. 40 per cent reported being physically harassed. 19 per cent reported being physically assaulted
Compared to Canada, fewer of the American students, 61 per cent, reported that they felt unsafe in school because of their sexual orientation. A study in Ontario found that 20% of trans people had experienced physical or sexual assault due to being trans, and 34% were subjected to verbal threats or harassment.
Trans people in both Canada and the US report high levels of violence, harassment, and discrimination with respect to finding stable housing or employment, and in accessing health or social services . One US study found that a third of trans people had lost or been denied a job because of their trans identity.

South Africa (2006)
Norway (2008)

Gay couples can legally adopt in all of the countries that have legalized gay marriage, plus Brazil and the United Kingdom. What is homosexuality? Two people in love. They are constantly discriminated against all around the world because they love people who are the same gender as them self. They have been bullied, murdered, denied rights, became homeless, physically and sexually harassed, killed in genocide, charged, put in jail, sentenced to death penalty, fired from jobs, been unable to get married, told they have a mental disorder and put through shock therapy for loving. For being who they are born. Bullying Many countries around the world discriminate against gays when it comes to marriage. Only 11 countries allow gay marriage and before. Countries have only began letting gays get married since 2000. Other countries recognize gay marriage but do not perform it, some countries are working to legalize gay marriage, and others allow gay marriage in part but not all of the country. It is important that everyone has the right to get married because people should be allowed to commit him/herself for life. Marriage is a human right of a special bond between two people not a heterosexual privilege. Gay Marriage Canada has made strides in gay rights. In less than forty years Homosexuality went from being considered a crime to gay marriage being practiced. Canada is considered one of the safest countries for homosexuals. Although there is still a stigma around being gay, violent hate crimes because of sexual orientation are the most frequent. Many of these hate crimes involve youth. This bullying and harassment is causing youth to have mental health problems and commit suicide. Several people are seeing the problem and starting to help to end the fear and hatred around being gay these include out celebrities and organizations. 13% — The proportion of all hate crimes that were motivated by sexual orientation in 2009.188 — The number of hate crimes in 2009 that were motivated by sexual orientation, up 18% from 2008.74% — The proportion of hate crimes motivated by sexual orientation in 2009 that were violent in nature. Minor assaults were the most frequent type of violent hate crime.This percentage was higher than the proportion of violent incidents motivated by race/ethnicity (39%) or religion (21%).Sexual orientation was one of the top three motivations for hate crimes; The second most likely place for hate crimes to be committed was in educational facilities; and Hate crimes predominantly affected youth: approximately one-half of all victims and three-quarters of those accused were between the ages of twelve and twenty-four. O' Canada The True North Strong And Free Places where same-sex marriages are recognised but not performed

United Kingdom
Paraguay 42% of LGBTQ youth studied had thoughts of suicide at some time. 48% said thoughts of suicide were clearly or to some degree related to their sexual orientation.Youth who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirited, queer or unsure of their sexual orientation were 3.4 times more likely to report a suicide attempt in the previous 12-month period.Studies have found high rates of depression, anxiety, obsessive–compulsive and phobic disorders, suicidal thoughts and acts, self-harm, and alcohol and drug dependence among LGBT people (5-7).LGB people are one and almost twice as likely to experience childhood maltreatment, interpersonal violence, and personal loss and are at double the risk of developing post traumatic stress disorder as their heterosexual peers.Meta-analysis studies found that sexual minority individuals were two and a half times more likely than heterosexuals to have attempted suicide and had a risk of depression and anxiety one and a half times higher than heterosexuals.A large statistically representative study of trans people in Ontario found that 77% had seriously considered suicide, and 45% had attempted suicide. Trans youth were at greatest risk of suicidality, as were those who had experienced physical or sexual assault. Gay and trans youth who are bullied because of their sexuality or gender identity are at high risk of committing suicide. This is a serious problem. All youth should have the opportunity to be loved and accepted for who they are regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Several celebrities and people have posted videos online for the It Gets Better campaign. Suicide is a mental health problem. Suicide in gay teens is too common. People need to stop bullying. That's So Gay... 89.2% of students frequently hear “THAT’S SO GAY” OR “YOU’RE SO GAY” The phrase "That's so gay..." is frequently heard in schools and in society. That's so gay is offensive because it is used in the context to mean that something is annoying or stupid which is like saying that someone's sexuality is annoying or stupid. When LGBT youth hear that's so gay it has a relation to LGBT youth suicide. People should think before they speak and stop replacing the word gay for stupid and annoying because it hurts others. Laws. The LGBT community has laws supporting and discriminating them all around the world. Some of the laws that discriminate against them do not let them join armed forces, do not let gay couples adopt children, do not let gays get married, do not let transgender people change birth documents to their gender. Some countries have laws that protect discrimination and hate crimes against homosexuals and transgender people. In fact in 76 countries you can be punished for sexual orientation seven of which includes a death penalty whereas only 53 countries have anti-discriminatory laws that apply to sexuality and 26 countries recognize same sex unions. In World War Two Holocaust homosexuals were killed. Countries where homosexuals are punished with death penalty
Saudi Arabia
United Arab Emirates
Mauritania A major problem facing gay youth is being bullied at school. Several youth are physically, sexually, and verbally harassed for their sexual orientation, gender identity or not fulfilling society's gender stereotypes. Homeless and family rejection Several LGBT youth become rejected by their parents after coming out. Due to the parents neglect many LGBT youth are homeless. When they become homeless they are at increased risk of victimization and suffer higher rates of mental health problems including suicide and depression and unprotected sex. As you can see the LGBT community is discriminated against in several ways all around the world. Whether it be someone bullying, parents rejecting their child, laws banning rights such as marriage and adoption, and so much more. Together we need to stop discrimination against homosexuals and transgender people. This video is of what people tweeted during twitter trend #tomyunbornchild. (2013, January 10).
