Why does the old bigot think that, exactly?  I kind of want to hear the old/racist explanation for this one.

My money's on something like "Have you ever tried to shoot with a limp wrist?  It just doesn't work."

You know what, ma'am?  I'm 100% confident that gay people, be they men or women, can put a gun in their hands, then pull the trigger.  You don't have to be a certain sexual orientation to be able to do that.

Heh.  Actually, "limp wristing" is a problem when shooting certain semi-automatic handguns.   That's because they work by what is known as "short recoil" operation, and if you absorb a significant amount of the energy available to cycle the gun by allowing the whole gun to recoil because your wrist isn't "locked", there isn't enough left over to completely cycle the action.

equal focus as a suspect if the evidence supports it. This applies regardless of your race, gender, culture,
religion, sexual orientation, coffee preference, or music tastes.

FTA:
As of right now, five people have been detained by Wilkes-Barre police for possible involvement in the shooting. In case you were wondering, one of them is the woman's gay son.

What are the odds?

Gay men are stereotyped as feminine and therefore nurturing. Like women, they are assumed to be less likely to commit violent crimes, about 95% of which are committed by men rather than women.

Gay men are stereotyped as a threat. Like all minorities, they are stereotyped as hyper-sexual, perverse, vicious, and murderous.

Contradict yourself much?

In my experience, quite a lot of gay men are quite capable of hurting you. A lot of people in the military are trained to shoot you. So are cops. A lot of these men (and women) are gay. There is also a lot of gay on gay violence in the same farked up relationships as heterosexuals know so well. You don't need to dig very deep in your Fark memory to find a lot of politicians who are bisexual if not closeted gays. Just search for "scandal" and "Republican".

It wouldn't take a lot of work to dig up articles about gay murderers, nor would it be very difficult to find stories about gays in non-stereotypical jobs, relationships, or professions such as cop, priest, President of the United States, etc.

So, yes, she is prejudiced. But, hey, at least it is a positive prejudice rather than the usual negative prejudice. And there are four other suspects (thus far) so I would say the odds are she is right and the boy didn't have the gun.

Yeah, that site has no alternative agenda what-so-ever. It also lumps people who were pedophiles in as "homosexual" because they targeted prepubescent boys for their murders, rather than acknowledging that pedophilia exists separate from homosexuality.

It's an exercise in "We're not saying that there's a correlation between homosexuals and serial killers, BUT.."

/hint: If you want to cite something about homosexuals and serial killers, -DONT- pull it from a fundie Christian website.

Good point, but their acts were not considered homosexual by their cultural as they didn't have a distinction between heterosexual and homosexual sex. It was also considered an insult if a father presented you his son after being victorious in an event (all were preformed in the nude) and you did not touch his penis.

I am bi-sexual and have shot women and children though it wasn't out of anger and I am not proud of it.
