So very sad!! In this day and age you would rather kill yourself than be gay - what a tragedy!

These two kids are going to have to live with this for the rest of their lives. And the rest of their lives should be in prison. What a very hateful thing to do.

This isn't about him being gay, it is about his roommate outing him in the most public way possible. His roommate deserves everything he gets for his actions, and probably a lot more than that. It is a hate crime! He might have thought it was being funny, but in truth it was a sick joke made by a sick person. The girl is also responsible for this, but apparently not to the degree that he is.

I don't want to make light of this serious situation but I have a question. If the couple had been heterosexual and the woman killed herself because she was ashamed that she would have a bad reputation would this be a crime?

Yes. But not a hate crime.

if the guy was gay, why was he ashamed of it, just because he was outed. if he was ashamed of being gay, then being gay must be something to be ashamed of. i wonder why? people arent ashamed to be heterosexual.

What a tragedy. My heart and thoughts go out to this young man and his family. It disgusts me that another human could do this to a person. Hopefully the roommate who violated his privacy will learn a big lesson during 5 years in prison, apologize to the victim's family, and be sorry he ever made such a cruel mistake.

now that this criminal has been caught, perhaps he'll enjoy some more prison sex, only this time it'll be live for his enjoyment, and perhaps he may even be the star of his own reality t.v. show!!!!! hope they get close ups of his facial expressions during tapings!

Ironically, the roommates will soon be having sex with men themselves.

And straight people do not usually have their sexual intercourse recorded without their consent and broadcast on the internet without their knowledge or permission. Wonder how proud you would be if you and your (what ever) were recorded doing the nasty and it was posted for the world to see. If you think so, then relax your normal. if not, then you are probably already working in the sex trade.

This is terrible that this young man took his own life. But, I will say that Homo Sexuality is wrong. It is a behavior of choice. Look at this young mans response to being outed. So terrible, I feel for the family.

The killer of Matthew Shepard was celebrated when he entered the pen. It is very likely the same sort. Don't expect remorse unless they show it to get a reduced sentence.

He was ashamed because confused people like you teach that we should be ashamed of our bodies and our sexuality and that we should hide our differences instead of celebrate them. People shouldn't be ashamed to be homosexual or heterosexual, but they should be ashamed to be repressive and narrow-minded. Think about the role model YOU portray for a young person in your life that may be struggling with who they are, and who doesn't feel they can speak to you.
