    YouTube - Middle Sexes (excerpt)

    The body disposal in the beginning and toward the end of the clip is a reinactment of Gwen Araujo's disposal by her murderers.

    Corrected "subling" to "sibling."

    I have always thought that homophobia is an outgrowth of sexual denial...
    we are MUCH more fluid in our sexuality than we say we are. There are very few individuals who are exclusively homo or heterosexual and most of us fall somewhere in between but we have our preference

    The sad thing is that BECAUSE of societal pressure and hatred the most vulnerable are young teenage males who are finding out who they are sexually and can becaome frightened by these feelings they cannot deny
    and sometimes this comes out as violence against someone they feel has no power....usually another homosexual male
    or they are vulnerable to thoughts of suicide

    All in all it is the stigma that is still allowed against homosexuality and it continues til today
    ...go into any middle school in America and what's the worst thing you can call a young man of that age ...
    9 times out of ten it's "fag"
