Bisexual teen dad hanged himself in woods

English 16-year-old was found dead after he was the victim of homophobic bullying at school for over two years
Anthony Stubbs, 16, and father to a four-month-old, hanged himself after suffering anti-gay bullying at school.

A bisexual teen dad has was found hanged after suffering homophobic bullying at school.

Anthony Stubbs, 16, from Lancashire, went missing in the middle of November last year.

Before he left, he spent the day with his girlfriend Charlotte Mason, 18, and their four-month-old daughter Lily.

Two months after, Stubbs had gone to in a nearby wood, left a carefully written suicide note, and hanged himself. He was found days after his death on 14 January.

Speaking to The Sun, his mother Denise said: ‘Anthony was getting bullied by girls for two years.

‘He would get shouted “gay boy” at, get slapped in the face, come home with his school jumper ripped and even got his phone stolen.

‘He would be upset but pick himself up and go back the next day.

‘I spoke to his teachers about it, but Anthony begged me not to get involved because it was making it worse and he’d get embarrassed.’

She added: ‘I think Anthony was very good at hiding how he really felt and making everyone believe he was OK.’

His mum had always suspected Stubbs could be gay, but only plucked up the courage to tell him it was okay when he was going to be a father.

‘He shouted that he wasn’t gay and loved Charlotte, but eventually confessed he might be bisexual,’ she said.

When he went missing, he had told his girlfriend he was going to his mother’s house.

But after the two texted a suspicious number in his phone, a man texted back a sexually explicit message. They believed Stubbs had left to ‘experiment’ and try to find himself.

Stubbs’ mother added: ‘I think his feelings for the same sex left him struggling to know what to do about it.

‘I think it got on top of him — coping with these feelings, being a dad and being good to Charlotte.

‘I think there should be someone in schools to support teenagers who may be going through this confusion.’

In Stubbs’ suicide note left in his schoolbag, he told his mother he loved her and gave his little brother his Xbox.

‘Well, I’m gone but not completely,’ it read. ‘I will be watching over you and making sure you make the right choices. And don’t forget me, I’m in heaven looking down.

‘Please don’t grieve and try to move on as best you can, I love you all so very much.’

I wish to express my appreciation to you for bailing me out of such a challenge. Right after surfing throughout the world wide web and getting principles which were not productive, I figured my entire life was over. Existing devoid of the answers to the difficulties you've resolved all through your main article content is a critical case, as well as ones that might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your blog. Your actual knowledge and kindness in handling every part was vital. I am not sure what I would've done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. I am able to at this time relish my future. Thanks so much for your reliable and effective guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse the blog to any person who ought to have care on this issue.

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.deck de madeira modular buildings texas
