Mitt - It's time to take a stand on the crisis of LGBT teen suicides and abandonment, and make amends for your own bullying past - or tell us why not.

Mitt Romney wants to be President of the United States - but he still supports a public stance that makes the lives of too many young LGBT Americans a living hell, while refusing to take responsibility for his own past of horrible bullying of his LGBT classmates.

This is wrong. At a time of skyrocketing LBGT teen suicides and abandonment, this needs to be addressed.

Mitt should start making amends, and taking steps to a country that does right by its citizens. He should begin by letting LGBT Americans - especially young LGBT Americans - that It Gets Better, and acknowledging his own record of bullying.

      So that another young man or woman doesn't have to die because of who he or she loves. Wake up and smell the coffee, Mr. Romney!

      I've known many LGBT citizens in my lifetime and I think that they deserve basic rights along with every other human on this earth. Just because some people may not understand them doesn't mean they are wrong in any way, and everyone should understand that, especially someone who wants to be a future president.
