“Please don’t be sad, it’s for the better,” the note reads. “The life I would’ve lived isn’t worth living in… because I’m transgender.”

leelah-alcorn16-year-old Leelah Alcorn died Sunday morning at 2:20 a.m. in a suspected suicide. Police believe she had walked three or four miles from her parent’s house in Kings Mill, Ohio to Interstate 71 where she leaped in front of a truck.

Following her death, a suicide note appeared on Alcorn’s Tumblr blog that suggested that she intended to kill herself. The missive offers a heartbreaking glimpse into the life of a teenager struggling with being accepted by her family and unable to see a hopeful future for herself:

This video was a bit controversial last time we posted it but seeing how it was re-submitted two times already after the restart of the blog… here we go again

Not sure what the context was here but in many European countries it’s a tradition to do something silly along these lines on the last day of school. In fact people coming to school just in undies happened in my school when I was in 9th grade or so!

kinseydataIf you always wanted to be a citizen scientist, here’s your chance: Kinsey Reporter is an app administered by Indiana University at Bloomington that tracks sexual and other intimate behaviours. You download it to your smart phone and then report your activities anonymously to the central data collection site. The project analyses the information and provides different options for data visualisation. You can then explore the data collected by the app yourself and discover new information on subjects as innocuous as public displays of affection and as harmful as unwanted sexual experiences. By zooming into the map, you can see just how much sex is happening in your city.

“David Thibault is only 16 years old, yet somehow when he sings Blue Christmas” by the late King of Rock and Roll, he sounds EXACTLY like him. When you listen to David, do yourself a favor and close your eyes. This Canadian teen’s voice has that same velvety smooth tone that Elvis’ fans around the world fell in love with…and believe me, it’s VERY hard to imitate!” –via Little Things

Due to popular demand the like feature for blog posts is back so don’t forget to check the last couple of posts and like stuff so we know what to post more of! I didn’t think people cared about it that much but quite a few of you asked for its return so here we go. I guess it’s neat to be able to give feedback without having to leave a comment.

Which brings us to our next point: Someone asked why nested comments don’t have a reply button. That’s because the comments are supposed to let you share your opinion or insight about a post, not to have lengthy discussions ;) For the latter we’ll have the forums ready very soon (thanks to AGmilky & the mod team who are setting it up right now).

And last but not least: it was really helpful to read all your feedback regarding  nudity on the blog. How do you feel about this compromise: When a picture is just artistic, not-in-your-face nudity without any sexual context we’ll leave it be but when it’s porn, boners or sexually suggestive stuff we’ll make it click-through. Is that something you could agree with?
