El Paso Gay Bashing Suspects: 3 Down, 3 To Go

Last night El Paso police arrested 17-year Ivan Gallardo, the third of six gang members connected to the brutal gay bashing of 22-year-old heterosexual Lionel Martinez. Either the bad press attention or being called out by a “gender bender and all around glamazon” have really gotten El Paso police moving on this case. Now only if they could find someone to wake Mr. Martinez from his baseball bat induced coma.

    Try them as adults, add a Hate Crime designation onto it and say good-bye to them for decades.

    You have Kobe Bryant shouting out the word Faggot…then again with the jets guy and David Tyree speaking out against Gay Marriage…and of course you have Tracey Morgan being downright hateful against gays and there are no ramifications. Even the sight of Weiner’s Weiner has brought down a Congressman. Are people that afraid of Gays in this day and age? Well Marc Freden, too, has been given pause with the issue. As a gay man, even he feels the need to apologize for the blatant use of the word “Faggot” in his new book “REALLY!?!” Now Freden using the “F” word should get a tacit pass…much like black people using the “N” word to describe themselves. His harmless use of the word…(And you must read the book to understand) has lead him to a video mea culpa on YouTube “Marc Freden Must Apologize to the Gay Community”. Furthermore, Freden has pledged that if Kobe Bryant can be fined $50,000 then he too should pay a price. A percentage of every book sold as a result of his apology will go to the Trevor Project – a gay hotline for distressed teens looking for a voice of calm and understanding. It is the least he can do. Who will join Freden in this cause?
