Just stupid. My philosophy was the greater the audience the greater care I used to communicate. He obviously does not understand that concept.

Are they still a thing? I know the younger kids were all leaving. The guy who started it got "excommunicated" before he died. I think it's just his daughter and a few other people now. I haven't heard about them in awhile.

All though it is probably a result of societal pressures/stigma, (sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy) the suicide rate among transgender people is substantially higher.

"For example, transgender adults have a prevalence of past-year suicide ideation that is nearly twelve times higher, and a prevalence of past-year suicide attempts that is about eighteen times higher, than the U.S. general population. The 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey (USTS), which is the largest survey of transgender people in the U.S. to date, found that 81.7 percent of respondents reported ever seriously thinking about suicide in their lifetimes, while 48.3 percent had done so in the past year. In regard to suicide attempts, 40.4 percent reported attempting suicide at some point in their lifetimes, and 7.3 percent reported attempting suicide in the past year."
