Ignoring societal issues feels like...I was going to make some remark about the elephant in the room, but this is so massive and obvious an issue that it transcends rooms and elephants entirely.

I'm trying to think what other possible issues and causes you could be considering. Your words feel like a mealy-mouthed way of saying, "Now, now, can't we just consider the possibility that LGBT people are inherently flawed and discuss this like civilized human beings."

I'm really shaking my head at the fact you believe that constantly facing threats on their lives for being who they are or being ostracized for who they are, from the wider culture doesn't completely explain the problems facing LGBT people. I'm fairly certain that if I was part of a demographic where I am seen, at best, as a disease and at worst, an abomination, that would have egregious effects on my psychology and maybe make me more likely to kill myself.

Let me stop you there. I mentioned those at least twice. Did you even read my post? What else pushes these people to suicide? It seems this forum would rather hatejerk about a poster than have a real discussion on helping to save the lives of trans people.
