Okay, you know what? I feel about Max-wank the same way you guys feel about other wank. 

Like it or not, attempted suicide is a plot device used on a hell of a lot of shows. Max is proud of his work and excited about something that I truly believe will end up sending a hugely positive message for kids like him, especially the ones who consider or attempt suicide. This plot is already getting media attention even before the episode. It’s going to get a new Trevor Project PSA aired in front of a HUGE audience. Overall, the impact is going to be incredibly positive. It’s going to get people talking nationwide about an issue that has devastated too many kids for too long.

I know this hits some people too close to home, but anger at Max for being excited about what must be a HUGE episode for him, for his character, and for the cultural discussion of suicide among gay teens, is something I don’t particularly want to see right now.

    I’m completely in agreement with you. I tweeted Max in reply to his (not that he ever sees mine, I’m sure) that I am in...
