Suicide by N7-Commander Suicide by N7-Commander
I know I'm going to be hated for this but really, I believe that it can be selfish, yes I understand if you have cancer or some other shit but most of the time, it can be.

For instance, this is what I'd consider selfish:
Bitch-bitch no iPod/iPhone/iPad
Child doesn't get electronics
Child is grounded and has shit taken away
Child is constantly watched by parent
Parent won't let kid hang out with buds
Not feeling worthy anymore
Feeling unsuccessful
Lover breaks up with you
Lover cheats on you
Bullies (if you commit suicide over a bully, you might as well be considered a fucking pussy)

I could fucking go on but you should get the idea, I understand if you have cancer or some other disease but honestly, you can't let things get to you, and committing suicide won't make things better, it'll only make things worse, not just for you but for the people around you, people love you and just don't okay.

Wow, I felt a bit emotional while writing this, I even almost cried lol.

I half agree, yet half disagree.
I don't believe people should have that much control / influence over someone's life, if they want to end it, it's their choice, no-one else can make that choice for them.
However, I believe it should be monitored, so, as you said, people can't go killing themselves over not having the technology-crap they want, but for just, proper reasons, like a terminal illness when they only have a set time to live, hell yes, let them, but perhaps offer some strong counseling or therapy beforehand.
If I ever have cancer or some other crippling illness that demolishes my quality of life, I'm sure as hell ending it on my own terms, after I talk to my family and closed friends so it's not such a shock to them.

okay I can NOT believe what I'm reading on some of these comments...

if you seriously think you have to be starving in Africa to have a bad life, you are incomprehensibly ignorant and you must have been having it way too easy. 
It's not always about money or being poor. There are plenty of things that can make a person feel this horrible. I think most people just don't really care that the person is upset, so they give them the "people are starving in Africa" bandaid so they don't have to deal with them. It's just lazy and unhelpful. 

And don't let rape get to you? Are you kidding me?

Instead of killing yourself, kill whoever is giving you the problem.

You under estimate what bullies do to lives

dude.. I was bullied my whole life, and not just by students, also the teachers T_T
I think if I can survive torture from pretty much the whole school, I am sure any kid can survive an ass kicking from that one jerk..

I think that if somebody kills themselves over not getting an iPhone or whatever, chances are they had something wrong with them anyway, or they were spoilt rotten their whole lives. I don't agree with suicide, and I do think it's selfish, and honestly I don't think there's a right or wrong answer to it because it's such a huge topic that goes off in so many directions. 
I hate bullying, and don't see the argument of 'Well if you're being cyber-bullied turn the computer off!' No, they should not have to turn the computer off because they should not be being cyber-bullied in the first place. I think that if you're being bullied at school or something and you don't tell a teacher or a parent, then you're not really helping yourself get through the bullying; but if you did tell the school and they did nothing about it, that's stupid. 
Generally, having the mind-set that something is selfless does not immediately make it so. There's so many wacked-up people who generally think that they are doing good things, but that doesn't make what they're doing any better. They're still bad people (I'm not comparing suicidal people to like, dictators or whatever, but that's the only example I could think of at the time). Likewise, if the suicidal person thinks they are doing a selfless act, it does not immediately make it one. I don't think it makes them selfish people, but I think it's a selfish act.

Well nobody loves me...And i'm suicidal. But that's my life, I have lots of tough things to get through. And people can rant about this comment all they like, but you'll just have to live with it. Us suicidals have hurdles to get over, but sometimes those hurdles are just a little bit to high. Or they can be very high, depends on the problem. And suicide over bullies...Well, its happened. I once felt like sucide because of bullies, but they did a lot more than just...bully me. They posted stuff on the internet about me, that people could see. They posted something on a dating site once about me, and I got teased really badly at school. Suicidals don't do suicide for the fun of it, or to make people "Happy". They do it for an exit, instead of just standing there and letting people treat you like absolute bullshit. But thsi si just my opinion, so yeah...

"Suicide tax" for the families of people who commit suicide comes to mind.
