A new studying of the impact of bullying on gay, lesbian and bisexual teens finds the teasing and ridicule reduces over time.

However, the British study finds young men have to wait longer for the bullying to stop than gay females.

Following young people for seven years, researchers found 50 percent of gay teens endured bullying.

By the time they were close to 20 years old, the number of people who reported being bullied dropped to 9 percent for boys and 6 percent for females.
