Problem is, is that the liberal media is telling us that gay is OK, but the playground berates any boy less than masculine as a faggot. This is what happens when worlds collide. When parents don’t see any harm in having their son openly act gay, while other parents don’t see any harm in their sons play murder simulator games on their X-Box!
I am surprised that no one has mentioned the articles portrayal of the two boys. Victim: Singer, loved by all, crochets with his mother. Perp: Goofey, junior marine in the making, typical guy.
You think there was a little editorializing being done here. No one was interviewed about the perp, but there were two or three glowing, “he was the most wonderful, well liked” interviews about the victim.
I don’t agree with the idea that if someone bugs you at school you shoot them, but you have to wonder just how pervasive this harassment was and how long it had been going on. Was there unwelcoming touching or advances be made? It sounds like the victim was an in your face kind of guy and this may not have been the first time he had cornered this other kid. And who knows maybe the other kid did go to a teacher or someone and was told that his attitude was homophobic and he needed to become more tolerant of Larry’s behavior. I would not be surprised to find that to be the case in a school that allowed this kid to parade around in make-up and high heels.
