    And that's why gay men want legislation to protect us from this type of harassment. At least these guys have a video to take to court...

    I found it heartwarming that those drunken jocks were setting such a fine example for those 7 & 8 year old boys who were sitting there. Right?

    Apparently they were Red Sox fans, not necessarily homosexuals. You're kind of asking for trouble if you wear Boston shit in New York.

    Also, even assuming that this was a real homophobic act, not all gay men "want legislation" to "protect" them from this shit. Some guys would actually start whooping some hater ass like real men.

    Stop giving all queers a bad name.

    Y'know, with your advocation of 'might is right' you're giving them a far worse name than someone who is seeking nonviolent, legal solutions.

    Nonviolent and legal are mutually exclusive concepts. By definition any legal threat implies the threat of force. If cops could not restrain, arrest, spray, beat or shoot people do you think anyone would follow the law if they didn't want to? Of course not. Our entire legal system rests on the threat of force by the police should you not submit to the state's demands. What I advocated was merely cutting out the middleman. Plus fighting is fun.

    Someone is either incredibly young, or incredibly stupid. Getting fired from your job for being gay is not exactly a place where you can just whoop some ass. The same can be said for gangs stalking and beating a gay guy to a pulp for being gay. Time to grow up.:rolleyes:

    You know, I can get over the fact that a group of "frat boys" are fucking retarded and think they are being funny.... I really can.

    What I can't get over is the older woman laughing in the background, and the 20-30 people standing around them, not doing anything.

    Fucking mob mentality.

    How did this go to being about workplace discrimination? That's another topic altogether.

    That's what martial arts and weapons are for.
    Time to get real.

    That video made me want to lock them all up. I wonder how many of them are closeted themselves.

    Violence is not the answer. That type of behavior should not have been tolerated by the police (who are at every game), regardless of the person(s) the mob is taunting.

    African Americans had to take to the streets in protest, and we need to do the same.

    This is from the YouTube comment from the guy who posted the video:

    "masterofthenet1 (12 hours ago)
    Those guys Arent gay...THEIR RED SOX FANS FUCKTARDS!!!!!!



    The Bleacher Creatures serenade some douchebag red sox teenager who thought it would be a good idea&#65279; to sit in section 41 for a Mid Summer Yankee Red Sox game. Moron"

    Not that this makes this video any better. I don't like crazy judgemental, pyscho fans anymore than I like homophobes...but I just thought I'd clearify this.

    Just like other people said here, I am mostly mad with the parents and everybody else looking at this like this is such a funny scene because they are bashing at the Red Sox fans!!!! Then we wonder where do all the pyschos come from, obviously they were raised that way, hence they know no better...

    If you want to be gay, expect criticism, violent criticism in some circumstances. That's my opinion, I'm all for equal rights, but homosexuality will never be 100% acceptable to all people, it's fact, some people (like me) don't think it's right, but the majority of most people, will get on with it.

    Most Brilliant Comment Ever.

    [sarcasm] Oooh, yes, please, I love harrassment and threats of bodily harm! Deny me all my rights of citizenship! [/sarcasm]

    Uh, frizzle, do you remember the exact point in time where you made the conscious choice to be straight, not gay? How did you decide? After all, it is a choice, isn't it?

    Glad to see I wasn't alone in taking great offense at his comments. I was beginning to think my skin had worn a little thin. :rolleyes:
