Transcript of Tolerance

Suicide Today, we live in a society in which people are easily angered by others, in which some people are denied certain human rights that any regular person would have. The way we view each other is not like fellow human beings but like Predator and Prey, every person is a Predator and another's prey.
People are judged by each other based on varying factors that have all to do with outward appearance such as Sexual Orientation, Body Modifications and the way one dresses.
Sometimes this judgemental attitudes towards others is spoken aloud and hurts the ones they are aimed towards.
"Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" has been proven to be completely false by actions made by teens today. S0me people's words lead to self harm and suicide.
These are two different types of prejudice. Mitch Lucker, lead singer of Suicide Silence and his daughter Kenadee RIP Mitch Lucker 1984-2012 Kellin Quinn, lead vocalist of Sleeping With Sirens and his daughter Copeland 23% of all Americans have tattoos
38% of all 18-29 year olds have at least 1 tattoo
In a Pew Research Poll done in 2010 it stated that almost 4 out of every ten people in America had at least one tattoo. These results are three years old, meaning the numbers have probably increased.
Out of the people with tattoos, 7 out of 10 have more than one and 2 out of 10 have 6 tattoos or more.
One out of four people ages 18-29 have at least one piercing other than in their ears. Statistics & Graphs Tattoos are getting more and more popular everyday and hopefully they'll be viewed one day as normal. People choose to tattoo themselves for several reasons. To express themselves, mark an important event or occasion, to remember someone or simply to beautify their bodies. Tattoos At Work Here we have a man who fights everyday for the sake of people's lives. Dr. Dave is a medical doctor with a private practice at NYC. He has many tattoos as shown here, many of which are medical related. Alex Campbell A preschool teacher, Alex does not hide her body ink from her students, on the contrary she changed her wardrobe to more skirt-friendly after getting this tattoed on her leg, she also made it part of her lesson plan. ''I asked a few parents about how they'd feel about a teacher with tattoos on her arm, and they were fine with it," the 37-year-old Brookline resident says. In the future she plans to get full sleeves. Meet Lamby and Wolfy a 6yr olds favourite plushies. One is a wolf, one is a lamb. One is a boy, one is genderfluid, and they are happily married. At the point where this interspecies genderqueer couple got married, she had not been spoken to about homosexuality, or gender, because it seemed needless, she was 3 to 4 years old. She decided herself that some days Lamby is a boy and others Lamby is a girl. She decided they loved each other, even though she knows Wolves eat Sheep. She drew their wedding pictures. She is riding a Brontosaurus to the wedding. She doesn’t see this as odd. They are in love. She doesn’t see same sex couples or trans*persons in the real world as odd, and all of this was before anything “had to be” explained. The hardest thing she was spoken to about was Death, after her cat brought in a small bird and that was because at age 4 it was a concept which is a bit beyond a child’s abilities to grasp the finite notion of death. Kids have no trouble understanding love if you don’t fill their heads with hate. Tolerance by Cynthia Aldana, Lucero Contreras and Imelda Nuno-Garcia Suicide is the third leading cause of deaths among young people resulting in about 44,000 deaths per year.
For every suicide there have been about 100 suicide attempts.
14 percent of high school students have considered suicide and at least 7 percent have attempted it.
Victims of bullying, whether it's name calling, physical, emotional or cyber bullying are 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than normal teens.
Nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying.
10-14 year old girls are more likely to consider suicide according to a study in Britain. Art and text by Madeline Gonzalez. rainbowbruises.deviantart.com/art/A-Comic-About-Gender-294271029 Works Cited People blame Marilyn Manson for this incident instead of blaming the President. Why? Because Manson is frowned upon for his beliefs, the way he chooses to represent himself, and the style of music he chooses to preform. While people frantically need someone to blame, they choose Manson because he's the easiest target. He is hated by many, loved by few and the president is considered to be the perfect, exemplary image. LGBT Bullying Statistics:

9 out of 10 LGBT students have experienced harassment at school.
LGBT teens are bullied 2 to 3 times as much as straight teens.
More than 1/3 of LGBT kids have attempted suicide.
LGBT kids are 4 times as likely to attempt suicide then our straight peers.
LGBT youth with “highly rejecting” families are 8 times more likely to attempt suicide than those whose families accept them. Stereotypes "Scene isn't a fashion thing – we don't like girls that wear tops down to here, but that's because it isn't good for them. We like loud guitars, we don't like Radio 1, we don't like people who only like music without meaning."
-Eve O'Brien This is scene This is just different. Scene is a style based on fashion. There are certain bands which are considered scene, such as Blood on the Dance Floor and BrokeNCYDE but in reality they are just electronic an crunkcore.
Scene, actually has 0 to do with music, 0 do to with any kind of sexual orientation and 0 to do with intelligence. It is SIMPLY A MATTER OF FASHION.
Scene is classified by things such as :
Large multi colored teased hair
Brightly colored bracelets
Bright skinny jeans
However, if a person does not clasify themselves as scene, then they are not scene. None of the people here are actually emo.
I just really like them all and they are commonly labeled as emo. The murder of Sophie Lancaster Sophie Lancaster was a 20 year old goth girl. On August 11, 2007 her and her boyfriend of 3 years, Robert Maltby where walking home late at night. They entered a skate park where they began to be followed by a seemingly benign group of teenage males. Then suddenly, and without provocation the group began to savagely beat Maltby,
Eventually, he lost consciousness and Sophie tried to shield him with her body. The group moved on to her and according to witnesses they kicked her repeatedly in the head and were literally jumping on her head.
We need... we need an ambulance at Bacup Park, this mosher has just been banged because he’s a mosher." said one witness sounding very distraught as he called emergency services
It was reported that the attackers invited their friends to the park to celebrate the dying of the two 'moshers'.
The couple was assisted by a few teens whom had called an ambulance and stayed by their side until help arrived.

Later, both were hospitalized and fell into coma's, Sophie's however, was deeper and it became very apparent, very quickly that she would not make it. 13 days later her family agreed to take her off of life support. Since her death there have been multiple donations by well-wishers as well as tribute events like concerts in her memory. Her family decided to use this money to make a special fund named "S.O.P.H.I.E." standing for "Stamp Out Prejudice Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere". Solution Now you have seen different ways that prejudice can end up in if it is not solved. Prejudice leads to actions such as bullying and hate crimes, and that can end up in suicides and murders.
Our Solution is to teach kids about equality from a young age.
About not judging.

Bellware, Kim. "Lincoln Park LGBT Mentors: High School Starts Mentorship Program That 'Could Be Model' For Chicago." The Huffington Post. TheHuffingtonPost.com, 26 Apr. 2013. Web. 13 May 2013. <http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/26/lincoln-park-lgbt-mentors_n_3164699.html>. "How am I supposed to explain to my child that two men are getting married" It's your kid. You tell them. Two guys are in love and they can't get married because you don't want to talk to your child for five minutes. It's not that difficult, it can be explained easily and it isn't as hard of a concept for children to grasp. The main problem is that some young children aren't given a chance to think for themselves, which causes so much hate in this world. Children are influenced at an early age, so if adults set a bad example for children, the child will go on with the rest of their life thinking nothing wrong of it. "The Most Hated Family in America" -TV documentary written and presented by the BBC's Louis Theroux About the Phelps family, at the heart of the Westboro Baptist Church. Thankfully things are taking a turn for the better, providing faith for the future generation. In recent news, Lincoln Park High School started a new mentorship program for LGBT students, The Lincoln Park Youth Society as it will be known, is a mentoring program for high school students with area college and graduate-level students who also identify as LGBT. The mastermind behind this idea is Christy Walker a straight, married woman who has a background in research in working with LGBT students and identity development. Walker believes that the Youth Society could be a model program for all Chicago Public Schools and can lead to something brighter for the future.
