    This, seems rational. Right? The above formentioned correlates with that I'm talking about here, which is Gay Panic, a legal defense people often use who decide to beat someone in the head with a baseball bat after a homosexual person makes an unwelcome advance- not with force, just simply an offer of sex. Perhaps this isn't the only situation which this occurs but it seems like in most cases it's just an easy way out.

    Here's the most recent example I can gather, in July of this year

    So what do you guys think about this sort of defense? I found it...interesting, to say the least.

    Why do all of my topics end up being funny.

    I can never get a thread as pumped up as Duty and Satya does.

    Except for that one paedophilia thread I made....

    oh, and how can we forget the infamous thread split that pretty much kicked off my career
    "Everybody's a little bit racist"

    I wish I could find the statistic, there really isn't a need for one...but essentially everyone has had a homosexual thoughts before. With a large amount of social pressure against homosexuality, it becomes an especially delicate subject, because unlike social distinctions based on ethnicity or race, this is something that could be completely invisible until brought up in conversation, or some overt gesture. At this point, both parties have been made vulnerable because one has exposed him/herself while the other is seeing that uncomfortable thought right before their eyes. It is really a matter of social change, and this defense is certainly unproductive because merely furthers the persecution of homosexuals and builds up an unnecessary divide.

    The amount of homosexual thoughts I have had are pretty astounding. It always comes up when I watch Harry Potter.....

    OH FUCK YOU'RE GAY?!

    Seriously, though, my mom does this with everyone. If someone has so much as a northern accent then they're gay, automatically. It's so annoying.

    Also, all gay people are child molesters. I just thought I'd let you guys know.

    Won't be able to sleep very well this week... I don't even know what you are saying, but it sounds disturbing enough already.

    If you mean the final, where Voldemort is revealed as an abandoned baby, that's the whole moral of the story. It's a way of the author to fight back the English tradition of neglectful raising of children. (which accidentally coincides with the English culture conquering the world; not necessariliy a reason for righteousness)

    No I'm just making unbacked up assumptions about the characters, I find it amusing to think that Voldemort is homosexual with Potter...I mean, why else do they have such an 'odd' relationship amognst each other? Har har har. But we're getting off topic and I made this topic damnit!

    I WILL STAY ON TOPIC!

    Continue serious discussion about the topic at hand.

    Interesting would be an undestatement. I don't understand it. This is no defense, this is pure rage. And it's so deeply rooted and I wonder how could people have so much hatred and fear buried within them. This kind of thing doesn't just happen, there are serious reasons for such a thing. Generations of fear, shame, misguided beliefs. I get that with panic attacks you're not thinking clearly (well, obviously, 61 stabs, crazy) but how do people get into such a state is beyond me. And this guy was acquitted. :doh: 21st century.

    the definition of murder is unjustifiable homicide. I can not see how attributing one's actions to a psychic reflex acquits them of murder.

    I haven't read any replies.
    That is taught hatred...period.
    I am under strong impression that we are
    taught to hate each other's differences.
    I refuse to differentiate and have my
    Children become a victim to that game.
