Snarfangel: boyvoyeur: It was $1000 for the radio, $1000 for the body work and $8000 for the huge rainbow flag we painted on the hood. Hope everything goes well from now on.

I don't understand gays in America. If you're gay, you're gay. No big deal. But why do gay guys have to be Richard Simmons gay? Why do gay gals need to be Jane Lynch or Rosie ODonnel gay?

Because it's fabulous?


Most people who are that flamboyantly gay are young. It has more to do with the fact that coming out for the first time you go with what you believe is the societal norm for being gay. You are just trying to fit into that roll.

They tend to mellow out as they get older (that happens with straight people too).

From omaha.com. Link

LINCOLN - Forensic medical professionals told police the anti-homosexual epithets cut into the body of a gay Lincoln woman were most likely self-inflicted, part of what has now led authorities to seek her arrest for false reporting.

Charlie Rogers, 33, a former basketball standout for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, told authorities she was the victim of a July 22 hate crime.

Rogers made a first appearance in court Tuesday afternoon and pleaded not guilty to the single count. She turned herself in Tuesday morning and was released without posting bail.

"To go through such a traumatic experience as she has been through and now be accused of a crime has made this even more difficult," said her attorney, Brett McArthur.

Her story that three masked male intruders broke into her house, bound her with zip ties and cut epithets into her arms and stomach fell apart under closer scrutiny, according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed by Lincoln Police Investigator Lynette Russell.

Among the inconsistencies with Rogers' report, according to the warrant:

A coroner's physician and a forensic pathologist said the cuts were either self-inflicted or done by someone with Rogers' cooperation. They made their determination after viewing photos of the cuts, saying they appeared superficial and symmetrical, avoided sensitive areas of the body, would have taken considerable time to do and were within Rogers' reach.

No male DNA was found on a pair of white knit gloves Rogers said one of the attackers was wearing. Rogers' DNA, however, was found on the inside of the gloves.

No blood was found on the covers of the bed where Rogers said the men held her while they carved the epithets into her body using a box cutter.

Rogers purchased zip ties, a box cutter, box cutter blades and white gloves from a local hardware store five days before the alleged attack. A store clerk picked Roger's photo out of a lineup as the person who made the purchase

Rogers also said the men spray-painted graffiti in her basement and set fire to her home.

Police said it is standard procedure to remain open to the possibility that assault reports are false. In the days after the report, they said they were actively searching for suspects, but they never made any arrests.

Gay-rights supporters held rallies in Omaha and Lincoln supporting Rogers, who they dubbed "Rainbow Jane." The case also was reported nationally on news websites and discussed on social networks.

I wonder if the repair shop is going to be a target for anti-gay sentiment now.

Can't watch videos at work - Did they mention what the school administration's response was to the vandalism? (I am assuming the key-ing happened in a school lot, obviously).
 
2012-08-21 06:47:34 PM

We can only hope? If they fixed it, they're gay too.

There really are very few social conservatives any longer, its why that idiot got smacked down for being an idiot.

There seem to be plenty of them left in Missouri. the guy is still one point up.

CheekyMonkey: lordaction: Bullshiat. Pretty much all of these "hate crimes" that have been in the news the past few years have always had a follow up story where it was found these people were doing it to themselves. There was one just last week where a gay guy was beat outside a bar and then the video came out that showed him falling down (drunk) and injuring himself.

I know, right? This is just like the time that that coked-up asshole and his douchebag friends invaded Iraq based on some bullshiat that they made up one night when they ran out of puppies to kick.

No one can possibly be that stupid.

These companies did a good thing to help him out, I hope it sends a message to these vandals. But there were no details in the story, did he know the vandals? Have any idea who they might be? Was he bullied directly? I thought by the time you're in college people just don't really care who's gay anymore. I'm hoping the vandals get their payback, somebody knows who did it.

CSB time
I had a friend some years ago, his GF broke up with him and moved out of his place. But not before taking a bunch of his valuables for no reason other than maybe he was too nice. Well, some friends got together and found out where she moved to, all her car windows were broken out.

Insurance paid the damages anyways unless he has liability only.

So now the kid has to pay taxes on extra work they did and the items they added. Everyone now knows he has a nice stereo system. In a week it'll all be stolen and the car will be back at the shop with the insurance paying for it.

I once had a person ask me why I hate them so much, I just replied "because youre breathing my air"

They stayed away from me from then on, some people do not get along, its nature most of the time but in this case they were piggy backing off work I had done and making sure they got credit along with me when I put in 80 hour weeks while they barely worked 35. I felt the hatred was justified.

A straight kid would have been told to 'man up and deal with it.'

If you're black, brown, gay, Jewish, or purple you now get special
treatment in this farking country.

If you're an average white male who get's shiat on, you have to man up and
deal with it.

I'm not saying they should be teased, but they shouldn't get prizes for having
to put up with assholes.


Amen, brother.

In this country, assholes who vandalize cars normally get their teeth knocked down their neck by anyone who sees it happen.

The assholes got away with it this time, so some cool bodyshop stepped up and made things right.

Dear gay people
(and black people, and women, and people with disabilities ...)

I am a well educated white male, I am middle class and life has been pretty easy.
Oh sure there was a bit of bullying in high school but I got by. And my first wife left me (which made me sad but I think I managed things OK).

Wait, what was I saying?
Oh yeah, it isn't all about me. If you guys get a break in life or if someone does something nice for you, it isn't the same as someone pissing in my wheaties. My life has been damned easy because of some sort of social-genetic lottery I won at birth but I think it is great when someone comes along and evens the playing field a bit (even if it is just for this one guy this one time).

I just think it is important that occasionally a guy like me (in a collard shirt, with this fantastic full head of grey hair) stands up and admits that it has really been easier for me than for you. And that I admit that the bad stuff in my life doesn't equal the holocaust.

So, equality. I'm all for it (and doing what I can to help it along) and I am sorry that some of my more entitled umm, brothers? (for the want of a better term) act like good things happening to you is the same as bad things happening to them.

Really, most of us are nice people (just like most of you).

I heard "dyke" shouted at me via a moving car, oddly enough full of pussies. While wearing a floral pink skirt of all things (not saying lesbians don't just that I was more girly girled out than usual already). Just made me sad for them, really. Hard to cure stupid, esp the kind of stupid that's liable to get you punched in the face eventually.

Well, that is not fabulous.
In my experience gay people don't dislike me at a greater rate than that of the general population. (have some of them been pretending to like me and if so, why?)
As for the smell, I have been to rugby training. I'll be fine once I shower.
