I dedicate this post to 27th Comrade, and to Kissyfur
I did not know that the problem was simply asking one to be his valentine. The words are not mine, and here they are.
Ellen DeGeneres was moved to tears on her show when she began talking about gay hate crimes. The 50-year-old talk show host told the audience about 15-year-old Lawrence King was murdered by a classmate on February 12 after he asked another boy to be his Valentine. “To be gay you can get killed for it…we need to change the message,” she said. “Larry is not a second class citizen. I am not a second class citizen. It is okay if you are gay.”
In case you dont know what she is talking about, it is about the child who was killed by a child, the 15 year old who was killed by a 14 year old.
