Matthew Shepard was a gay drug addict who was killed by a couple of other gay dope heads who he owed money to.

As many times as you post that worn out fiction that some pathetic hack trying to sell his book put out there, it will never take away the fact that a young man was pistol whipped, beaten to a pulp, and left to die tied to a fence. If you can't even wrap your head around the brutality, but get off on it, then it is a relief that you have been isolated from society and posting as cyber thug, the Topix Proxy Queen.

It did turn out that at least one of the sadistic, homophobic murderers later realized or claimed he has homosexual feelings, but those two murderers were never out and were "opposed to" (male) homosexuality.

The dynamic sounds awfully current in topix gay threads.

Considering my post is 15 hours old, it would appear you are the one having a delayed trigger reaction, as usual.
