    Dear Autumn :
    I am amazed by your post about “LGBTQ Rights”.Because coming out to the world about your sexuality is a fearful situation when acceptance is not always assured.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ I categorize myself in the LGBT even though we shouldn’t have labels for anything or anyone”.

  • Dear Grace :
    I am amazed by your post about “Violence Towards the LGBTQ Community”. Because people of color experience high rates compared to straight cisgender people. Also 21 percent of hate crimes reported in 2013 which is kind of a high percentage.

    • Dear Surako:
      I am surprise with your post, “Abusive relationships,” because I know that is something that happens everywhere in the world. Also, not many guys think that is something important to research about.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Most studies of relational aggression have involved children or adolescents; the study of relational aggression in adults presents problems.” I think the aggression is not something that adults should do in front of children. Children and adolescents should never be around when there is an argument. Just as well, adults should never hit each other, mostly when there is a kid in the house.

      Another sentence that I liked was: “Findings of a study by Rivers and Smith have shown that while verbal aggression occurs with similar frequency in both sexes, direct physical aggression is more common among boys and indirect aggression is more common among girls.” This stood out for me because girls can’t really defend themselves so they can’t really do physical harm, but I know that they can harm emotionally. Boys mostly scream to girls and it can lead to physical and emotional harm and that should not be the way. Girls are more sensitive and there should be something or somebody to stop that.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was talking with my ex/boyfriend. I didn’t want to be with him anymore. I needed to focus on school and our relationship was not that healthy. Most of the time we were arguing. He got really mad and he started screaming and grabbed my arm really hard. Afterwards, I used to see him everyday, not because I wanted to, but because he is related to my brother in law. That was the last time I talked to him.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this post is really interesting to me because I want to learn about more wrong things that happens in this world. It is really good to share thoughts and things that one knows and others don’t.
