    A gay man was assaulted. Rather than
    immediately inferring that the rapist
    must be a ” insert derogatory gay slur here,”
    as if that is the worst possible insult,
    why don’t you just refer to him for what
    he is, a degenerate criminal.

  2. Gee, I think I got it.. says:

    Well based on his facial appearance and his well manicured eye-brows Is it fair to say this cutie pie is screaming to get OUT and was hoping he met someone who was willing to listen. What else would provoke him to do this to a complete stranger ? And he sexually assaulted him, a straight man would want NO contact with a gay man unless he was interested.

    Methinks Stinky is a h o m o.
