    Wow, that's horrible. Seven guys ganged on up him and beat him up? Who would have a fighting chance unless you're a martial arts expert.

    I hope they catch the culprits and that hey are punished appropriately.

    This is disgusting and totally unforgivable conduct. These sick minded gay bashers need to have the living shit beaten out of them.

    Surprising in Buenos Aires- very gay friendly city. Guess there are versions of Republicans everywhere.

    It's always interesting that gay bashers nearly always subscribe to a gang mentality when bashing gays. I wonder if that's because they know their egos wouldn't survive a one-on-one attack, with the associated actual risk of losing, or if it's just another example of the old rule about mob mentality (originally applied to teen boys - but works for men too) "One boy as a brain, 2 boys have half a brain, 3 boys or more have no brain at all"

    Simply horrific! The perpetrators should get the harshest conviction possible.

    If this was just a random attack then I hope they get prosecuted but as was suggested in the comments and I am reading between the lines here, the guy who got bashed contributed or could have invited the attack by trying to act up or as suggested by all the threads about fantasies of sleeping with str8 guys he may have attempted to pick one of them up or acted sexually towards them. Neither excuses what happened but I have to point out the reality that if you want your sexuality respected, respect the sexuality of others and don't take for granted that you can get away with acting in a sexual way towards str8 guys coz this can happen. I am saying this even if it's not applicable in this case as a warning to remember that even with progress in societies attitudes, don't think it's a licence to do what ever you like
