So i have many facts but no thesis at the moment for my project. Im working on a thesis and thats where i need Ya'll to help.
HERE IS THE THESIS i have so far.. i haven't really finished it.
"The Intolerance of Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual youth is leading to "
" The intolerance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual youth in North America is..."

These are the facts that i have to back it up.

In a typical class of 30 students, 8 students (27% of the class) will be directly affected by homosexuality of self, one or more siblings, or one or both parents.
27% of gay and lesbian youth have been physically hurt by another student.
Gay students hear anti-gay slurs as often as 26 times each day; faculty intervention occurs in only about 3% of those cases.
In one nationwide survey, over 84 percent of GLBTQ students reported verbal harassment at school. Over 39 percent of all gay, lesbian, and bisexual youth reported being punched, kicked, or injured with a weapon at school because of their sexual orientation
Approximately 28% of gay and lesbian youth drop out of high school because of discomfort (due to verbal and physical abuse) in the school environment.
According to several surveys, four out of five gay and lesbian students say they don’t know one supportive adult at school.
Approximately 40% of homeless youth are identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual.
50% of all gay and lesbian youth report that their parents reject them due to their sexual orientation.
26% of gay and lesbian youth are forced to leave home because of conflicts over their sexual orientation.
In a study of 194 gay and lesbian youth, 25% were verbally abused by parents, and nearly 10% dealt with threatened or actual violence.
Gay and lesbian youth are 2 to 6 times more likely to attempt suicide than heterosexual youth.
Over 30% of all reported teen suicides each year are committed by gay and lesbian youth.
At least 75% of crimes against gays and lesbians are not reported to anyone.
Gays and lesbians are at least 7 times more likely to be crime victims than heterosexual people.
Many GLBTQ youth report relying on television to learn what it means to be lesbian or gay. In one study, 80 percent of these youth ages 14 to 17 believed media stereotypes that depicted gay men as effeminate and lesbians as masculine. Half believed that all homosexual people were unhappy
There is no conclusive evidence of what "causes" homosexuality or heterosexuality. Homosexual and heterosexual people come from every type of family background. As always, a good parent will teach love, self-respect, and respect for others. Many scientist believe that sexual orientation is set at birth, certainly by a age five. Recent research, on twins and the DNA of gay men, has shown that genetics plays an important role in establishing one's sexual orientation. Most gay men and lesbians have no desire to be "cured" (heterosexual); those who do are responding to the negative societal attitudes toward them. The "cure" needed is not for gay people but for society's negative attitudes or "homophobia".

It all has to relate to this essay we read in class about native people and how there needs to be more tolerance and love among people. SO basically im like there neds to be more tolerance and love for gay , lesbian and bisexual youth in north america. (Because it had to be for canada but there aren't enough facts for GLBT Canada and then it had to be more specific so i said GLB youth in North America)
It's not for an essay just for a presentation /seminar type thing.

I'm busy typing my own paper

I'm busy typing my own paper right now (sorry for being selfish) but all I have to say is recognize your main points and tie them into the thesis. The thesis is always the hardest thing to do. Good luck, and sorry.

Well I basically agree with

Well I basically agree with Toph, use your main topics. for example: The intolerance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual youth in North America is a serious issue and can lead to suicide, dropping out of high school ... etc.

I think you have too many facts on your thesis. you should focus on only one. like "the intolerance....leads to suicide, homelessness" (this is your umbrella idea). from there you can branch into 2 points: school-related (high drop out rates, etc) and family related(lack of support, violence, etc). be sure that you have credible sources(where'd you get those facts? from a magazine, newspaper, book or merely website?).

the technique is to focus on one main point/umbrella idea and then branch it out and back them up with credible sources. be sure to state your objectives, scope and limitation, and the significance of your study(for whom is your study? how will it benefit your beneficiary?)

and lastly, have fun making your thesis. you can have fun by not cramming. please,please, do not cram your thesis or else all will be fucking crappy. just trust me ;)

in case you still need some help, just im me or something okay?

hope i kindda helped. ;)
