How Can These Things Still Happen?

This story via Wicked Gay Blog and Edge New England is so disturbing. The original story about this boy was in the news some time ago, but the perpetrators are now getting off with a life sentence. Hope prison is miserable and they live long.

  1. Of course there are monsters who torture and kill by abuse or neglect their own kids for no particular reason - just because they are sadistic and they can. Child abuse is a huge problem.

    But this case serves to remind us that even though we've won all these legal and political victories, there is a still a deep, vicious hatred for "queers" among a certain portion of the population. It doesn't help that the religious right keeps whipping up the fires of homophobia with outrageous claims and hysterical fears.

  2. Russ,
    You wrote the commentary I didn't have the time or the patience to write. Thanks.
