Did you ever wonder why when something happens to one of our folks in the community it is almost always followed by stories that discredit the victim?
Remember Matthew Shepard? The child was not warm yet in the arms of God when the stories started circulating he may have set himself up for being tied to a fence, tortured and murdered.
Remember the fella who got beat up leaving one of our gay watering holes? It didn’t take long for stories to get started that his behavior may have led to his beating.
