FURT SAYS:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Voice aren’t you missing the point? No the papers don’t say “Heterosexual murders 16,” but neither do they say that “homosexuals murder 16,” unless it is relevant to the case (as it was with the Matthew Shepherd and Gianni Versace killings)
And Kbutcher said that “the media” was downlaying the issue. How the hell did you get onto what people say in lockerrooms? Being a bit defensive?<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Ahem…Why you would think that stating the obvious is “defensive” is beyond me. But, then I make the mistake of believing that you did think, in the first place. The facts are these – whether a person is Gay or Hetero, has nothing to do with committing disgusting crimes. Whether they be Rape, Murder, Mass Murder or the biggie for Heteros, child molestation. And this first occurred to me way back in '81 or '82 when the “Atlanta Child Murders” were going on. During the trial, while watching GMA or some other morning show, the news caster said, “Wayne Williams denies he’s homosexual.” What the hell does that have to do with murdering little boys?..My point, and perhaps if you re-read my response you will get it, is if someone commits a horrible crime, I don’t know what their sexuality has to do with it. Ted Bundy, for instance, who murdered women was never referred to as “Heterosexual Mass Murderer Strikes again”… But that scumball Jeffrey Dahmer was referred to as a homosexual in every thing printed or spoken about him. And although Heterosexuals are responsible for the vast majority of sex crimes (disproportianatly so) whether against adults or children…I have never seen “Heterosexual man rapes 5 year old girl”. Yet read an article about any open homosexual…it is included in the article. Additionally, several years back, a male karate instructor abducted one of his young students. He took him to another state and raped him and molested him. They did catch him, the boy was returned. I won’t say unharmed…obviously a child is sacred and not fodder for evil sexual deviants of any persuasion. What was very telling though, was that when the police brought him back, the father of the boy blew the kidnappers head off, in the airport. He was given a suspended sentence or probation…a very light sentence at any rate. A few years later, out west I believe, A HETEROSEXUAL man abducted and repeatedly raped a little girl. He was caught and during the trial taunted the girls mother. Finally, the woman blew his head off in court. She was and may still be, in prison. So, I guess if a heterosexual commits heinous acts against a child, it’s not so bad. Is that your point?
As to Matthew Sheppard, you got your facts a bit twisted. Matthew was the victom and the Gay man…the deviants who tortured him were the Heterosexuals (ya know, so called normal)
Gianni Versace? If the murderer was constantly identified as a homosexual, then how come when a hetero shoots a hetero, its not newsworthy? It’s simply reported as Joe Smith Murdered Bill Jones.So you help to make my point.
The point is that a person’s sexual identity has nothing to do with whether or not they are murderers, child molesters, Senators, bus drivers or, heroes (as in the case of Oliver Sipples, a Gay man who saved the life of President Ford…and begged the media to keep his life private…they didn’t)Barney Frank is always the Gay Congressman from Mass., Martina Navratilova is always the Lesbian tennis player. Greg Louganis lost out on a lot of endorsements…didn’t even get the Wheaties box. Bob Packwood nor Bill Clinton are never referred to as the “Hetero Sexual predators”…everyone assumes that the world is hetero…unless told otherwise. That is arrogance. And if stating facts makes me defensive, Guilty. Please, just never assume I am a Heterosexual. And never assume that you know my beliefs or politics. Or do all Heteros dress, act, vote the same? Do you all wear the same clothes? Eat the same food? Watch the same movies? Vote for the same politicians???
