Do you see the kid in those pictures? His name was Danny Ashton Elric, and I’m hear to tell you his story.
January of 2011, Danny decided to kill himself.
In the eyes of a lot of people, Danny wouldn’t be consider a “normal” boy. He was, in fact, an FTM. For those of you who don’t know what that means, I’ll give you a quick explanation. An FTM transgender is when, in this case, someone is born physically girl, but is mentally a boy.
Danny moved to Florida with his mom, dad, and brother Chris. Danny and Chris went to their new school and got everything worked out for Danny. So, that he was allowed to use the male bathroom, opt out of P.E, etc.
Everything was going good for Danny at school. No one knew that he was trans, they all just thought of him as a normal boy. But, one day out of sheer spite, Danny’s mom decided to tell the entire school that Danny was a girl. That was the day everything went downhill for him.
Danny was bullied majorly after his mother told everyone about Danny; and his parents didn’t care at all. Even after Danny killed himself, his parents STILL don’t care.
A few days after the bullying started, Chris found Danny hanging from a hook in his bedroom.
Danny was gone…15 years old, and he ended his life due to being bullied because his mom decided to out him. Because of ignorant kids, Danny will never breath or walk on this earth ever again.
Bullying needs to come to an end. Like, out of all honesty does it make you feel good that someone took their own damn life because YOU decided to bully them?
Words hurt. Think BEFORE you speak.
