    You are assuming. That is my point.

    Where are you getting this stuff from? The story is tragic enough as it is without making up additional facts.
    Meh, I got my own emotional investment in this issue. I'm a member on JUB. I read his thread before he killed himself. I'm like a lot of people on that forum, just wondering if there was anything that could have been said or done differently.

    You sound as ignorant as my Catholic church used to be. At least they have grown up a little and realized those that commit suicide are not in their right mind. You obviously have no idea the depths of despair the human mind get attain. I suppose that is fortunate, but on the other hand your lack of empathy for your fellow man is disgustingly repulsive.

If you read his first Twitter comment it says, "Room-mate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly's room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay." Seems to me like he's more excited that his roomy is getting some action.

    This is a college. People having sex and roommates pulling pranks on said sex is something that happens regularly. If Tyler was making out with a lady and doing the naughty with her I bet you that his roommates Twitters and reaction would have been the exact same. Was the roommate in the wrong, yeah he was in the wrong for Voyeurism, which is a crime, but he was just pranking his roommate not necessarily bullying him.

    If anything it was Tyler who was ashamed about being Gay, not anyone else. Why would he be ashamed? I say look at the family, maybe they didn't accept him for something like that. Also who said it was about being Gay and the Sex Tape anyways? I don't see anything about a suicide note in there. For all we know Tyler was stressed out from any number of things and decided to just end it all. Maybe his significant other dumped him after the video went live and it wasn't because he was ashamed of being gay, it was because he just got his heart broken.

    The point is I think everyone here is jumping the gun and assuming one thing when the only evidence we have is speculative. It's sad that he committed suicide, but I don't really see any evidence of bullying and I think everyone is jumping on the bandwagon against his roomies just because this might be a "Gay" issue. If we find evidence to the contrary then I will agree that the roommates should be punished, but until then I think this was just a depressed kid committing suicide and everyone trying to find a scapegoat to blame.
    I personally have no clue on why somone would get off on watching their roomate have sex gay or hetero. I had a few flings in my dorm but sure as hell wasn't interested in watching anyone else.

    And I don't think I've ever said differently. That being said, there's a difference between making an assumption based on the explicit words of the people involved and making assumptions based on absolutely nothing.

    FWIW, the responses prior to him jumping were about as good as anything you could ever find on the internet. Everyone was helpful, offering support, and understanding of his situation. There's not many places on the internet where you'll get a response like that.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I have to agree too. This doesn't change anything...He's dead

    this kid was probably already on the verge of suicidal. I find it hard to believe that this one instance would be enough to cause an otherwise rational person decide to commit suicide. Not saying that what these two did was right, just saying that this gay dude already had some serious issues and this incident was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    it might have been, but that in no way mitigates what those little pukes did.

    It shows you how much better gay people are relative to the general population.
