theantijock saidwww.Gay American Heroes.com27 Year old straight man picks up (a 68 year old) gay man at a well known gay beach in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Agrees to "hook up" and goes back to gay man’s home and Strangles him To DEATH with his bare hands. Robs gay man’s home and is found days later in a Straight Stripper bar in Miami spending gay mans money....
All people who live honestly about their sexual orientation or gender
identity are heroic, as it takes great strength and courage to face the daily
struggles for personal freedom in the face of enormous opposition; to
ultimately give their life for said freedom makes them-- HEROES.
Sorry to say but a 68 year old guy picking up some kid on the beach for a quickie at his place is kind of an example of risk, not of being a hero.
Triggerman saidAnyone that meets anyone is subject to risk. Gay, straight, whatever. For every Jeffrey Dahmer there is a straight Ted Bundy that seems perfectly normal. People get killed all the time, straight or gay, by family, friends and coworkers. It is not the fault of the victims. Who assumes that someone is harboring a murderous rage? Be smart, yes. But do not blame victims of freaking murderers. It could be the 68yo picking up a guy or it could be the 22yo meeting someone at a party. No one knows, obviously. People get killed by the most innocent seeming people all the time.
theantijock saidI didn't say he deserved to die. I didn't deny that we all take a risk just getting out of bed in the morning.
But the generally accepted hallmark of a hero is risking one's own life to the benefit of another, not to swallow the cum of some kid 40 years your junior. It is the selfless act, not the act of satisfying yourself.
Risking your life and losing it thusly is unfortunate, sad, maybe even an embarrassment. An online pamphlet trying to elevate that as heroic has not garnered my support.
mcwclewis saidI think they should include some people that weren't... you know... murdered.
Martyrdom isn't the only way to be heroic... and it's kind of morbid to have a website dedicated just to people who were murdered, especially considering very little information is provided about most of these people.
