So a gay star gets beaten up

And here on DU multiple "Progressives" are questioning the story as fishy.

First instinct is to NOT be angry, but question the person who got attacked.



The DU Homophobia is still rampant

1. I agree, it creeps up every once in a while.

People are so worried about poor Roger and his late night FBI raid. This is much more serious, this stuff has to stop!

2. homophobia is rampant everywhere.

It surprises me how many of us who may not even think they have issues may hold some attitudes that are really not cool. Having a lesbian teen with many bi, gay, and trans friends, I have had to reteach myself how to say or approach certain topics...and I'm pretty chill

I am shocked by the vitriol even displayed by these kids' own families: deadnaming them to their face, forcing them to be "normal" to other family members and friends, refusing therapy or even talking about transitioning...so much more, it's sad.

8. Look for the Thread in LBN about Empire star Jussie Smollett getting attacked by two MAGAts

 

I think linking is against the rules.

Multiple people casting aspersions.

9. So much for "we must believe the victim" so many tout.

Same thing happens when the victim is a Jew. Suddenly, everyone wants to "wait for the details" before making a pronouncement.

11. We should be thankful...

...for all those who lead us to our fainting couches and they 'splain to us the inherent problems with the situation, all whilst they regale us with stories of their heroics in being a gay ally or that one time, at band camp, their best gay friend sucked their cock.
