“If it was more about sex, there wouldn’t be straight men raping guys to prove their twisted little point.” I heard this from my friend Devon. Deon is gay, and proud of it. But, not everyone accepts it. He’s funny, smart, and very talented. But that obviously isn’t enough. In late April 2010m Devon was beaten. His injuries sent him to the hospital. But what were the motives?

Not everyone reacts well to a homosexual. Some people even say that they don’t belong on this planet. And some people see to it that they’re not here. Those men tried to see to it that there was one less gay guy in the world. But one of the ways Devon was beaten was male x male rape. It was considered sodomy in trial. But he was raped. How does that make sense? Raping someone because you don’t agree with them being gay? Physically and emotionally torturing someone because you don’t think they’re good enough for the world? Judging a person when you know absolutely nothing about them?

The answer is, it doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t make sense to hurt someone with intentions when you don’t know him. It doesn’t make sense to sin in God’s name. Those 20 years in prison don’t account for anything. The only thing that will account for their actions is…nothing.

Punishment for ones wrongdoings is pointless. They don’t change the act that has been committed. A beautiful, funny, talented boy had been hurt because of prejudice. It’s up to us to make sure it never happens again.
