Shouldn't have killed himself...
Hurt a lot of innocent people (who cared about him) in doing that.

If queers wouldn't have homosex then they wouldn't feel so shameful as to kill themselves. Stop the perverse homosex and end the senseless suicides.

When you are young and immature, believing that you have irrevocably disappointed those closest to you can be devastating. If his family had disapproved of premarital sex, this same type of thing could have happened.

This is sad, and I wish he hadn't killed himself. That said, if he felt so ashamed acting out with other men, maybe he should have considered that first. If there is nothing dirty, sinful, or shameful about being gay, then how can being outed make anyone kill themselves? If you really know deep down that you were born that way, didn't choose it, and are doing nothing wrong, then there is little others can say to make you take the easy way out.

The victim had made some racist comments. It is not the Indian guy's fault that the victim's mother couldn't accept her son. If it wasn't for the taping incident, it might have been something else.

Another thing I don't understand is why neither went to the RC about this tension.

At any rate, this is a sad tragedy that never should have happened. Ravi shouldn't have been snooping on his roommate.

I think it is sad for everyone involved. The young man didn't think it through enough to realize given time itnwould get better. And the young man who revealed this did not think it through to see what might happen. Now he has to live with the fact someone killed themselves because of something he did. This was a meltdown that didn't have to happen. How many people affected 20 or 30 or who knows how many.
What a shame.

Just because someone says something you disagree with don't act like they are ignorant. They may have a bias not based on fact but may be very intelligent. At least this way you don't have to worry about spelling mistakes.

You're a disgusting and disordered bigot-pos. He wasn't merely outed. After all, he told his roommate he was planning on a hookup with this 25 year old man. He was out to his roommate, you idiot.
He was broadcast over the internet (or Rutger's intranet) having sex. How'd you like that happening to you? People might see you're a closeted transsexual in denial and shame over it.
(Although in your case it would the viewers of your sex tape jumping off bridges. Gross.)
You keep spreading lies that I am a transsexual. I am female and born with a vagina, and I will keep it for life. I was born with my current name. I am simply an advocate for true-transsexuals and working to liberate them from LGBTs hijacking and co-opting their community. If you think only transsexuals should take up for transsexuals, then we need to make it a felony for non-gays to support gays, non-Blacks to support Blacks, and men to support women.

Everyone knows I am a professional advocate for true-transsexuals, and them alone, not TGs nor LGBTs. I will continue to take up for my clients no matter how many lies you spread about me. Being a transsexual woman is no different from being any other woman, since neither were supposed to be born with a penis. Transsexual women are normal women born with the wrong parts below and the need to have them removed. Transgender "women" are really cross-dressing men who choose to live as women. Transsexualism is a condition, transgenderism is a behavior and chosen lifestyle. Transsexual women are born with female brains and perhaps inner essence, thus giving them their validity, unlike transgender men who lie and pretend to be women who have a fetish, not a valid medical condition. Transsexual transition is therapeutic, while transgender "transition" is a recreation and lifestyle. Transsexuals who transition and fully hide their past are liberated, while transgender men are self-handicapping. Transsexualism is a subset of the mainstream community, while TGs are a type of Queer (LGBT member).

Like I said, if the man was truly born gay, then being outed in such a wide fashion would have never bothered him. After all, he would have been doing nothing wrong. Not doing anything wrong is nothing to feel guilty and ashamed over. I have yet to hear of a heterosexual sleeping with their spouse or regular lover killing each other over this.

As for sex, I am proudly a virgin. So nobody will see anything, since I do nothing. I prefer living alone and engaging in solitaire, technical activities. I am so intelligent, secure, self-sufficient and mentally healthy that I don't need anyone as a crutch. That is what sex is, a crutch. The primary purpose for sex is procreation, but most use it as a drug or a crutch.

I am glad my parents are dead and don't ever want anyone else to ever run my life again. And a spouse or even a casual sex partner would be like having replacement parents, and I vowed at an early age that as soon as I got free of the shackles, I'd never submit to another ever again. And I've made good on that promise to me.

The last two personal messages you sent me were nothing more than over the top sewer sludge flinging. You made some very nasty comments and then in order to keep me from defending myself you blocked (or at least threatened to do so) like a complete little coward.

Did you even read that last comment? It is pompous beyond imagination. Maybe it was just as well that you blocked personal messages from me as you seem impossible to reason with.

But it is okay for you to make threats, lies, and slanderous comments in private emails to try to drive others to suicide?

Are you from Rutgers? Or are you here trying to make other people commit suicide? Since I have never liked you, why don't you block all posts from me and ignore the rest? Or are you too little of a man to do that?
