What about the "personal responsibility" and "character" of the CRIMINALS who-not once but TWICE-went out their way and CHOSE to violate this young man's privacy--all the while pretending to be his friend!!?? We have truly hit a MORAL LOW (!) when we cannot EMPATHIZE with a CRIME VICTIM regardless of his personal "preferences"! The particular nature of this crime--the Internet-- is permanent and long reaching. For all this young man knew every single one of his professors and classmates saw him naked. Is this suppossed to be ok? Was he supposed to simply pretend this violation didn't happen?? GAY OR STARIGHT, IS THIS NOT SEVERLY DAMAGING???
