Gay Bashing: Would You Try to Stop It?

Gay Bashing: Would You Try to Stop It?

There are 45 comments on the abcnews.go.com story from Mar 24, 2009, titled Gay Bashing: Would You Try to Stop It?. In it, abcnews.go.com reports that:

With the election of the first African-American president, the nation ushered in a new era of tolerance and acceptance. The visible shift in American ideology brought forth bright expectations for people across the spectrum. But will all communities benefit from this change? With sexual orientation hate crimes consistently on the rise in the past decade, we wondered.

(ABC News)Watch the story on "What Would You Do?" tonight at 10 ET.

To test Americans' increasing open-mindedness, we staged a verbal gay-bashing scenario at a local sports bar in Linden, N.J. We hired actor Vince August to play a homophobic patron. Dusty St. Amand and Dominic Benevento, a gay couple in real life, played the targets of his slurs. Two additional actors, Traci Hovel and Brad Lee Wind, played a heterosexual couple at the opposite end of the bar.

This is Christ, happy Tuesday. Honestly no. I'm not gay why should I? I haven't even had sex since 1994. I have been busy Creating The Internet that you now owe me $80,000,000,000.00 for. Good luck.

Who wouldn't stop it. I happen to be gay myself. It's not right to go around and pick on gay people. We are human beings as well.
