Can we stop using the Holocaust as are go-to comparison for really bad stuff? Genocide is genocide.
I agree with her sentiments, but I hate how the Holocaust and Nazis have basically morphed into mere synonyms and the baseline for "bad things involving a group of people"
It's unnecessary to compare the tragic suicides of bullied gay (or perceived as gay) teens, because it's horrible enough on it's own.
