    This gay dude has a name. And he was a complex, intelligent, talented young man. Not just gay, and a suicide.

    And again: Those are not the only options. If people are doing it right, there's a great deal of ground to cover between kissing and penetration. Only complete idiots go straight from a kiss to "How can I love you if you won't bend over."

    point being, if they were doing something other than kissing, they dude recording would more than likely have been more specific in his statement.

    so? what's your point? I noticed you didn't get your panties in a wad because I failed to call the other two students by name.

    he was a dude. he was gay. where's the problem with describing him as "gay dude"?

    I don't think they should get any jail time, or minimal at most. There was no intent to harm, they were playing a prank that backfired. The dude committed suicide, they maybe should have been more aware of his mental state; perhaps he was good at masking it. Who knows? Not us. They can maybe get "illegal videotaping", but one of the pranksters was the roommate so I don't even know if something like that could stick. Surely you're allowed to record in your own room. But these kids most likely are going to feel horrible for the rest of their lives, it didn't seem like they intended harm.

    would this be an issue if not for the "gay" angle? perhaps we should charge society in general for stigmatizing gays. the shame engendered by the negative stereotypes associated with being gay had much more to do with this guy's suicide than did this video braodcast.

    Internalized homophobia killed this boy.. Nothing else, or perhaps maybe not only the video, as some are suggesting.

    Either way, who cares? I don't?

    true, this was not a well adjusted person who got caught on tape having gay sex and went from normal to suicidal.

    I would posit that anyone who commits suicide is not well adjusted.

    my point is generally you just don't suddenly become suicidal. he was probably suicidal before this incident and it just pushed him over the edge. Without any evidence of intent, it is hard to blame these two students for his death.

    If you shoot 4 holes into a boat. which bullet caused the boat to sink...the first or the fourth?
