 No.610875

A prominent lawyer who spent years fighting for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people set himself on fire Saturday.

David S. Buckel's charred remains were found in a New York park, The New York Times reported. In a letter Buckel emailed to the publication and other media outlets earlier that day, he wrote, "Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purpose in death."

A former marriage project director for Lambda Legal, a nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights of LGBT people, Buckel played a major role in a long, dark battle for recognition and equality.

In one of his most noted cases, he represented the mother of Brandon Teena, a transgender man who had notified a Nebraska sheriff that he had been raped. The sheriff informed Teena's assailants who killed him in the days that followed. "It should not be the case that reporting a crime makes matters worse for you," Buckel told The Daily Nebraskan in 2001. Eventually the sheriff was found liable for failing to protect Teena and his brutal murder was dramatized in a film called Boys Don't Cry starring Hillary Swank.

By 2016, Buckel was focusing on protecting the environment.

On the last day of his life, he reportedly emphasized environmental responsibility, stating in a note to the media, "Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather. Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result — my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves."

You know what's not going to improve pollution? Setting yourself on fire and releasing even more carbon. He should have just jumped into a bog or something to get decomposed.

Oh right, sure, setting yourself on fire to change something that is more complicated to fix rather than just “Stop using muh fossil fuels.” Is totally a reasonable thing to do. Not like you have anything to provide really, you’re a lawyer, not an economist. Nor anyone of any significance that can help push research, again, you’re a lawyer, not a scientist. You see, what that monk did in Vietnam actually served a purpose because it brought attention to a problem not many knew or cared about, which was the slow genocide of the Buddhist population in Nam. THAT is a reason to set yourself on fire for, in hopes of preventing a totally avoidable destruction of an identity by reasonable means. What YOUR dumbass did was kill yourself over an issue that literally the entire fucking world already knows about and is taking precautions to avoid. Yeah Trump is a fucking idiot but he isnt the dictator of this country, and can be replaced in literally 3 years if you actually come around this time with a candidate whos main gimmick isnt having a pussy while being terrible at everything else.

So… Bravo? You’ve accomplished absolutely fucking nothing and your death will be martyred for about 3 months until liberal media forgets about you and moves onto the next thing that gets clicks. Afterwards being the laughing stock of imageboard autists and edgy reddit fags for the next 5-10 years until even they forget about you. Congrats.

Unfortunately he did not set himself on fire in front of audience so his martyrdom is a failure. At least someone took photo of his free coal that he left behind so it can be used as the meme by the people.

You’re boring. Who says everyone hates the “racists” of 50 years ago? Far as I am concerned people in general are reverting back to the “racist” ways given that this ethnic synthesis failed and left a good sum of people aware of just how incompatible they are with other races. A better question is: How does it feel that the only thing future generations will have to look back on when it comes to the gay community is a bunch of fucking cokeheads blowing each other in the middle of a parade? How does it feel having exposed yourselves as emasculated genetic dead ends that failed to do the one easiest thing that humans were meant to do? Breed. How does it feel to know you will never be more than a hand full of mentally ill crybabies that are about as common as sociopaths?

Looks like my words hit a nerve. Please, dont be too upset. There is plenty of things in life to be happy about. Look at the bright side, at least when someone deposits their gift up your ass you can count the number of days you have left on this earth with a few pin up calendars, you can take comfort not having to be around all those wacist, hwomofwobic meenies on the internet. I’d say get fucked but you are probably as used up and raggidy as a high school sophomores sock. Just as crusty as well
