The lisp, limp wrist and penchant for wearing pink throws people off.

Bashed even though he's straight, out of Surrey? That's just not cricket.

Maybe so to those overly concerned with such things.  But your not condoning the beatings are you?

The kind of ape who would do something like this is liable to think you're gay if you bathe regularly. Or read without moving your lips.

Son, when you walk into a room and announce that you'll swallow every wiener that is put in front of your face, there will be problems.  Even if you are in a butcher shop.

/The mesh tank-top and nipple-ring aren't helping either.

maybe he was beat up for being the louis ck definition of a fa@@et.

So is that considered a hate crime or not?

When your single, thin and neat, this is bound to happen.

I know people who think their gaydar is perfect.  They look at a guy who likes show tunes, bright-colored clothes, and giggles a lot, and they just can't understand why he would get married, have kids, and never act on his "obvious" gayness his whole life. Must be in denial.

Effeminate != gay

I don't want to say that he would carve a backwards B on his cheek, but I think he is leaving something out of the story. It makes no sense.

Nabb1: When your single, thin and neat, this is bound to happen.


I'm single and thin (possibly not so much on the neat) and I get mistaken for gay from time to time.  Thankfully, all this has ever resulted in for me is being hit on, not hit.

This.

Of course some people find this harder to understand than others. My uncle still thinks that every man with a lisp is gay.

First reaction: That's horrible.
After reading article: Oh, he's a skateboarder. Meh.
 
2013-10-13 10:06:44 AM
Maybe he was beaten up for being a grown man still traveling via skateboard.  I can appreciate that.
 
2013-10-13 10:26:26 AM
This time Street says he was skateboarding in Guildford...


Oh, yeah, it was "gay-bashing". Right.

In Canada? Damned right it is. We have the strictest laws in North America against this type of discrimination.

As with most one sided stories, I'm sure there is more to this than what's being reported. For one thing, being called a "gay slur"  (F word) doesn't necessarily mean they were assuming you're gay. There's still plenty of people who use that word as an insult rather than an insinuation of sexuality.

Does this count as a hate crime?

Probably does.  I don't really like hate crimes because it doesn't really matter.  Hate is hate, drug deal gone wrong or wrong religion, ect.

If "no or very few words were exchanged", and all he's got is that the dude threw homophobic slurs to call it gaybashing...? NEWSFLASH for this kid, homophobic slurs don't really have anything to do with it.

Gaybashing is when you get stalked home from a known gay bar and jumped. Gaybashing is when you and your boyfriend get beaten for holding hands in public.

Gaybashing isn't when you're riding your skateboard with a muppet haircut and someone takes you down with little preamble. That's trying to beat some sense into you for having horrible muppet hair and riding a skateboard in Guildford, and eating crackers like you own the place. Sexuality doesn't have to have anything to do with it; methinks doth protest too much.

it sucks when people think you're gay when you're not.  because once they believe you're gay, it is absolutely impossible to convince them otherwise.  nothing you do matters, you can have sex with a bunch of women right in front of them, and they'll still think you're gay.

i'm not gay, but i'm also an awkward nerd who is terrible with women.  i've had lots of people think i'm gay just because i'm kind of shy and i don't have a girlfriend.  apparently that is enough to set off some people's gaydar.  i can't even make jokes about possibly being gay, because people will think i'm serious.  i'm sure i have relatives and even friends who expect me to come out of the closet any day now.  but i'm not gay!  not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.

My father used to say: "The first time someone calls you a horse you punch him on the nose, the second time someone calls you a horse you call him a jerk but the third time someone calls you a horse, well then perhaps it's time to go shopping for a saddle."
 
2013-10-13 10:40:04 AM
I'd love to read an actual old time news article (one with actual investigation) about this, or anything that mentions if anyone who later helped him up, heard the slurs as well.  I'm wondering if he got beat up for rudely skateboarding into people in a crowd, and is just trying to collect dollars and sympathy.   Not that beating anyone up is right either way, I'm just wondering if his own actions started something first.

He reminds me of a friend who's bar fight/arrest stories always start off with "so I was minding my own business when..."

This isn't the case here. The dude has a stupid haircut but if you watch his YouTube video effeminate is not a word you would use to describe him. Maybe he was dressed like a hipster and some idiot Neanderthal didn't know their is a difference.

You're completely wrong.

It's about intent. Sure, we have no way of knowing intent, but the fact that the guy who assaulted this man called him a gay slur would lend some credence to the fact that this was probably a homophobic attack. Occums razor and all that.

But yeah, go on being you're awesome iconoclast contrarian self. I'm sure that's working out real well for you.

I would at least bet even money on the guy wearing naughty librarian glasses to be a pole smoker. Someone get him a haircut, shave, and a suit. Then burn the rest of his wardrobe. And contacts, because he clearly has bad taste in eyewear.

Then we can talk about mannerisms. See, this is what happens when you don't let the school bullies provide negative reinforcement.

Or one could argue that as an application of law, it does not matter why he was his ass kicked if he was doing nothing wrong. Only that he was getting his ass kicked for doing nothing wrong.
