The man is a hateful cretin.

I'm a student at the Rutgers-New Brunswick/Piscataway campus. I can tell you that the entire student body is in shock about what happened and completely appalled by the two perpetrators' actions.

No doubt that is an idiotic thing for a grown man to write, but is it really homophobic? He didn't specifically mention anything about gays. I suppose you could read into it and say it is, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he's just a fucking moron and not a fucking homophobic moron

Yeah, I read other commentary yesterday (gotta love those celeb gossip sites!), and can see how it can be construed as just being "Hey, straight dudes - go down on your ladies!!!"

But he's also said horrendous anti-gay stuff before on Twitter, so I have no qualms whatsoever about not giving him the benefit of the doubt.

I just want to mention some facts here, for what they are worth.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students in the U.S.. Also college student suicides account for half the national suicide rate. From what I've read in the past, research suggests that the LGBTQ communities on campus have higher rates for suicide attempts than the heterosexual college population.

Was this a homophobia related suicide? Or did it have more to do with the circumstance of being a college student? Has he been bullied about homosexuality before? All the articles I've read just talk about how he killed himself over the video. No one has mentioned anything about previous mental health issues with this guy. Was he depressed? Was he medicated? The only inkling I got was that one classmate commented on how he was quiet and kept to himself. There could very well have been other things that lead up to his fatal decision.

Someone should point out to the jackass homophobe who set up the webcam that deliberately trying to watch 2 gay men have sex is a pretty gay thing to do.

Another example of cyberbullying via Social Networking (Facebook):

Photos of teen's rape by gang go viral on Internet

Quote:
Angry and disgusted police officers issued an appeal on Thursday for people to stop downloading and sharing graphic photos of a 16-year-old girl being gang-raped by a group of seven males in a Pitt Meadows field.

"I've been involved in investigating sexual assaults for many years," said Ridge Meadows RCMP Sgt. Jennifer Hyland, who is leading the investigation into the early-Saturday incident. "In that time, I've never experienced anything like what is occurring in this investigation."

Copies of the images have been "spreading like wildfire," she said.

"The very public discussion about this victim and the taking and subsequent sharing of photos depicting this rape is disgusting, morally corrupt and criminal," she said.

Police said the girl was likely drugged during the attack and required medical attention afterwards.

The images were taken by a youth who is facing a number of charges for his alleged part in the rape and the subsequent production and distribution of child pornography.

The images were posted on Facebook within hours of the assault and removed when police became aware of them Sunday.

However, copies had been downloaded and have since gone into circulation.

All I have to say is what is the world coming to when people are doing this? It's disgraceful and appalling behavior.
