D.C. to gays: You're 'derogatory'
A court ruled today that the now-infamous Duke University lacrosse player Collin Finnerty will have to stand trial in Washington, D.C. for the assault of Jeffrey O. Bloxgom.
According to court papers, Finnerty was arrested (along with two friends) for punching Mr. Bloxgom after he told them to "'stop calling him gay and other derogatory names.'"
No one should be assaulted (well, I can think of one or two people who may deserve a beating) and no one should have to deal with punks on the street like Collin and his Chaminade buddies, but get over yourself Mr. Bloxgom . . . being called gay isn't the worst thing that could happen to you and certainly not the worst name you could be called. Hello?!?! Your name is Bloxgom for f**k's sake!
Update: Not only is "gay" derogatory, but the term "homosexual" is unacceptable!
And Mr. Bloxgom is heterosexual (or so he says).
