I suspect he's on drugs as well, most dirty cops are.

The **** of this boy has nothing to do with being gay. I'd appreciate it if you didn't continue equating gay men with pedophilia just for future reference.

But he is gay. Should that really be censored? I never once said his sexual persuasion had anything to do with his offense. Should it truly be hidden that he is gay?

Then I don't want straight people defiled either, by implying this man is straight. I want a little * at the bottom, that says, "*this offender is not of the heterosexual persuasion".

It doesn't matter whether he's straight or gay, pedophilia has nothing to do with sexual orientation. We've been over this.

I agree with Alia, the fact that he is in charge of a gay rights group makes his crimes even worse because this enforces negative stereotypes, and is a flagrant abuse of a trusted position.

I don't think there was any intention to claim he committed these crimes because he was gay, which is an absurd suggestion for anyone to make.

I must here conceed that. I must also aver than men **** no more than women do. It's against the TOS to say otherwise.

However, why hide the fact that he's gay? No one here would draw the conclusion that it has anything to do with his sexual orientation. In fact, they are forbidden to do so.

Yes, yes they are.

How about I make a bunch of threads with titles like "Straight man rapes little girl" or how about "Straight man rapes little boy".

This is not the first time she's attempted to equate pedophilia with homosexuality. And it is not only factually inaccurate but it's also offensive to anyone who is gay since this is a long time used tactic to show how gay = wrong.

I would ban you.

But if you made a thread about an anti gay marriage preacher that raped a boy, girl, or did anything wrong. That would be fine. In fact it would be irresponsible for you to ignore his agenda in such a report.

Didn't she admit finding women attractive and probably being a lesbian?

You'd ban me for doing the exact same thing she just did on the opposite side of the spectrum? Hypocritical much?

No, I would ban you for doing what you just accused her of doing, but what I just explained to you by giving you an example is not what I feel she did.

So I can point out in the future when a member of the NAACP rapes a woman that he's a black man? Even though it would be totally irrelevant to the fact he raped a woman?

You understand how completely illogical and ludicrous that is?

I wouldn't have a problem with it. If they are straight, and you're just telling the truth, what would be the issue?
