That's what this admittedly depressing site is going to try to do. Remind these people that hatred does have a price. You don't get to go around proclaiming "
Protect the Children!", while contributing to their deaths.

I'm talking to you FRC*, AFA*, NOM, CWA*, ADF, FOtF and so many others.

* These groups are listed as hate groups by the SPLC.

Kameron Jacobsen

Kameron Jocobsen
Meet Kameron Jacobsen, age 14.  Kameron committed suicide in January of 2011.  He was a freshman at Monroe Woodbury High School n New York.  Although Kameron was not believed to be gay, bullying based on the perception that he was, played a role in his death.

From the story:
MYFOXNY.COM - A community in Orange Country, N.Y., is in mourning and in shock after a 14-year-old freshman took his own life and Facebook bullying may have pushed him over the edge.

Sources said that Kameron Jacobsen of Monroe Woodbury High School was tormented by Facebook bullies who taunted him about what they thought was his sexual orientation.

His fellow students and parents are devastated.

An excerpt from an article written by his father:
It is a very difficult process to write about my son’s life, but my hope is that you become a bit more familiar with him and you realize that he is the same as any young boy. They are all loved, they are all our sons. They all have dreams, they all have fears. They sometimes cry and sometimes hide their tears.

-Kevin Jacobsen Sr.

UPDATE 3/20/2012

A reader alerted me to some heart-breaking news.  From the article:

Kevin Jacobsen

MONROE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — It is an unimaginable loss for a Hudson Valley family.

A father who became an anti-bullying advocate after losing his son to suicide, has now taken his own life, reports CBS 2′s Tony Aiello.

A shadow of grief is once again upon a house in Orange County, following the weekend suicide of Kevin Jacobsen.

“That whole family to go through this twice now, I just can’t believe it,” neighbor Jacqui Vega said.

“There’s never an answer to it. It’s sad, you know. That’s all I can say. Just keep ‘em in your prayers and hope the wife can carry on,” added resident Bill Hale.

Back in September, Wanda and Kevin Jacobsen spoke about the suicide death of their son, Kameron, who suffered physical, verbal and cyber bullying.




  1. This has to be the saddest thing. They don't actually know if he gay yet they bullied him to the point that he killed himself. People are awful.

  2. I would love to join them, ugly hatefull world we live in. Even living in the netherlands suck.
    As soon as mum not needs me anymore (alsheimer) I will follow too

    1. Hey, don't focus on the ugly in the world. There is much beauty too -- sometimes you just need to go look for it. You live in the Netherlands, one of the first countries (if not THE first) country to permit gay people to marry. Even in my country (US), for all of our vaunted "freedom", gay marriage is not allowed where I live.

      Don't let the bastards grind you down!

      Yes, there is ugly in the world -- there always will be, but you cannot focus only on that.

    2. Doesn't matter if he was or he wasn't gay. Tormenting someone is never acceptable behavior for any reason. Never. What a crying shame.
