    Funnyhow a news about a man unsuccessfully going through a lawsuit against their former employer due sexual discrimination gets a shitload of replies, and this news story is largely ignored for some reason.

    Actually its not funny, its tragic.

    It's way too early to say if this is a hate crime, much less protest the lack of protests about #gaylives. Regular murder victims can be gay too...

    Unfortunately, the first thing we need to watch for is

    THE GAYHOAX

    aspect of the story, especially since this is from Andy Towle (who isn't getting any younger, by the way).

    There's this:

    "His roommates called us on Friday and told us that the previous night around 1 a.m., he had a very loud and emotional conversation on the telephone that woke the whole house. He left the residence and was never seen again," his father said.

    So I'm thinking no hate crime. Sounds like another dispute over drugs and money, like the Queen Mother of all bogus gay hate crime stories,

    THE GAYHOAX

    that started it all, the death of Matthew Shepard.

    Funnyhow people prefer to compare people's reaction to stories rather than react to the stories themselves.

    THIS story, however, remains tragic.
