    You read that it wasn't bigotry? I would expect the two people who participated in this prank to claim, "Oh, it had NOTHING to do with the fact that he was gay." Shame on them.

    To be fair the parents might honestly not have known. I was able to hide my depression from my parents for years. It wasn't until my best friend committed suicide and I had to deal with that and the fact his suicide letter was written to only me that my parents realized my mental state.

    maybe it had something do to with the fact that he was the guy's roommate and therefore a target of opportunity? It's not like they broke into a gay guy's room and set up a hidden camera.

    give it a ****ing rest already. the "homophobic bully" card is played out.

    In all fairness, I know quite a few high school and college students who would videotape a straight couple having sex and post it online, thinking it would be funny.

    Anyone who's seen American Pie knows that great humor can be derived from secretly videotaping nerds trying to have sex. And this is just what that is - a nerd trying to have sex. Granted, it was in the butt, but the premise is still the same.

    To identify this as a hate crime is convenient ignorance. If a black man came up to your wife and tried to grope her, forcing you to retaliate, is it a hate crime? Is it racially motivated?

    Nope.

    College "kids" are full grown adults who have already had two decades of childhood to "get the 'stupid' out of their systems'. Excusing their behavior is far, far worse than "demonizing" them for doing something that any right-thinking adult should be able to recognize is cruel, pointless and wholly unacceptable.

    Then they could do with a taste of the lash, themselves.

    have you met many 18-19 year olds that acted like "full grown adults"? I haven't, at least not in the last 20 years. and in far too many cases, mommy and daddy have been too busy protecting their fragile precious little babies that they haven't allowed them to be stupid. so they get to college and finally out from under the thumb and they go ape-**** crazy

    That's not what he said. Please don't make appeals to the absurd.

    If it were so easy for people not to make appeals to the absurd, they'd already be using rational arguments.

    Also, this seems appropriate here:



    Some people will feel better if we can burn someone in effigy. Or, if that's insufficient, for reals.
