Oh, but I think we should extend the special treatment that glbt people get to fundies and other sexually sick filth:

Say the evilgelicals can't marry, adopt, serve openly, be protected from arbitrary firing. And I'm sure someone could arrange to beat them up on the street just to keep the treatment authentic.

It's very clear you didn't read the article.
It's the 3 straight girls who are getting the special treatment.
No such thing as special treatment when you do not have rights or equality in the first place. Another right wing moron ought to eat his words...

This person was being bullied and snapped as she said.... so why prosecute the victim? Those straight girls should be prosecuted. What if this had turned into yet another suicide... these cases can go in different directions - suicide, fight back which is better - or just take it take it and take more abuse.? And the school should be held responsible.
