‘I have no one to speak too. No one to consult, no one to support me and I feel depressed and lonely’

SOUNDBITES — “I have no one to speak too [sic]. No one to consult, no one to support me and I feel depressed and lonely. I do not know what to do. And then I think this loneliness leads me to other problems.” —Accused Northwest plane bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, in a 2005 web posting while he was still at boarding school, sounding eerily reminiscent of some of the Internet comments we’ve seen left by closeted and confused gay teens (via)

      WTF??? Why in the world would you even toss out there the
      notion that this scumbag may be Gay??? Why not give the
      right another nugget to put out there to give reason to
      hate on us???

      Was this the first day with someones new brain???
      If so make quick like to the return counter, its sorely defective………

      PS: I hope this scumbags three piece set was burned to a
      crisp by his little boner bomb……..

      I think that feelings of isolation are typical at that age.

      I’m with Terrwill. While I can understand the overriding sentiment that access to counseling and a general environment of openness and acceptance is desired by those sexually and religiously confused, this note does little to make the tie in the right way.

      Instead, as Terrwill notes, you all but insinuate this guy might be gay. It’s irresponsible of you, Queerty. And even if this guy was gay, you won’t find me trying to milk compassion from anybody – in fact, just like peaceful Muslims do toward extremists, you’ll find me disavowing this guy through and through.

      Last I checked, not a lot of gays went out committing mass murder because no one gave them love and understanding.

      If anything, the sadder thing is they end up killing themselves.

      yes, because only gays feel isolated and depressed as adolescents. FAIL!

      QUEERTY probably saw the wise-ass comment I made on a thread about some gaydar gadget suggesting Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab might be gay, based on his choice of undies.

      http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/stew/detail?entry_id=54287 has a picture of them (not available when I made the comment – had seen the picture in a newspaper). The undies are torn enough that it’s hard to say exactly, but I figured they could either be bikini briefs or wider-than normal thongs. Plus they had a pouch to hide the explosive, which reminded me of the package-enhancer pouches in some of Andrew Christian’s underwear designs.

      Of course, it was meant as a joke, complete with “He’s gay” and “He’s straight” alternatives.

      So many people feel that way. You are not alone. Just keep slowly working at building a support network of friends who can develop into a chosen extended family. Eventually the real friends stick. It helps to find people similarly situated who also need to create that kind of support network. Try CreatingExtendedFamilies.com
