Why are they posting this as "news" from an LGBT website that states right up from that they are a website with "homosexual tendencies"?

Furthering that thought, what added value does this "article" bring to the discussion? All they did was cut-and-paste a condensed version of the initial Town Talk news story onto their site. No new interviews with family, friends or neighbors of those principally involved; not even an "expert" opinion from a mental/sexual health professional or experienced law enforcement agent. Extremely lazy and irresponsible journalism if you ask me.

Once again, we have this confusion with Transgender and Gay. Transgender is NOT gay. While we are grateful to Towleroad for publishing this on our behalf, it only adds to the confusion of the casual reader. I'd much rather see the article in the Wall St Journal or even the NY times.

LGBT-Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, right? Aren't they all the same? Their sexual identity is confused in every case.

My question is: why does Topix here this freaky site listed as a news source when, like DB said, they are just repeating the same story from a local paper?
