So, my friend needs ...
So, my friend needs a lot of attention because he was assaulted for being gay? Umm...yeah, hate crimes need attention, so people will stop doing hate crimes and/or turning a blind eye to them.
What &quot;bandwagon&quot; are we jumping on, since the vast majority of us KNOW Henry? What &quot;bandwagon&quot; is standing up for gay rights, as well as human rights?
If YOUR mother, father, sister, brother, best friend, friend, or anyone else that you were close to, was the victim of a hate crime, would you say that they were seeking attention? You are incredibly closed-minded and devoid of compassion.
You saw the news story, but you didn't see the bruising and marks on his neck and face? Are you blind? So what was my friend supposed to do, take the band aid off and show you what was underneath? His bruising alone is worth investigating.
Your argument is so weak that you resorted to talking about my friend's skin? Wow, that really holds water.
You don't know how hard it is being gay. There is no word that YOU can be called that would equal the amount of hurt and anger that comes from the word &quot;f*ggot&quot;. Try getting called that for most of your life and see if you don't do something impulsive, like throw a glass. Count yourself lucky that you don't have to go through the discrimination and brutality that A LOT of gay people go through.
Even though you're being extremely immature and hateful, I hope that you never go through anything even remotely similar to what my friend went through.
Regardless of sexual orientation, we have ALL, at some point, been the victims of some form of discrimination. Remember back to an instance that YOU went through and try to find some compassion, instead of filling your heart with hate and ignorance.
