I am sure he must have evidence to have stated this.
Well, that is the unofficial word on the street. New editor, Bryce Johns, is ‘apparently’ getting rid of her.
About mother-fucking time. Her ‘weight’ comments have just been getting stranger and stranger the heavier she has got. But her endless hate against Alison Mau, and her outing of her for TVNZ, as well as the general hatred she betrays, are all good reasons for her to be dumped by any newspaper that wants a scrap of respect.
But mostly, I will be glad to see the end of her homophobic ramblings.
With gay youth killing themselves so frequently, hateful ramblings by the like of her and Cameron Slater needs to be seen for the hate speech it is.
We cannot help being born gay.
You two can lose weight.
And get treatment for the ‘mental issues’.
Anti-gay bullying is being blamed for the suicide of 14-year-old Brandon Bitner of Middleburg, Pennsylvania on Friday. Bitner walked 13 miles before throwing himself in front of a truck, the Daily Item reports:
Freshman Brandon Bitner, 14, of Mount Pleasant Mills, ran in front of the truck at 3 a.m. near Liverpool, according to state police at Newport. The boy’s family discovered him missing at 3:45 a.m., and contacted police.
The road was closed for about three hours after the crash.
There seems to be little doubt in the students’ minds why Bitner did what he did. “It was because of bullying,” friend Takara Jo Folk wrote in a letter to The Daily Item. “It was not about race, or gender, but they bullied him for his sexual preferences and the way he dressed. Which,” she said, “they wrongly accused him of.”
His death came just days after an anti-bullying assembly at the high school, which, according to district Superintendent Wesley Knapp, was not held in response to any specific problems at the school, but because it is an issue Principal Cynthia Hutchinson has always felt strongly about. After the assembly, according to student Briana Boyer in another letter to The Daily Item, “No one took it seriously, and joked around about it.”
Former Midd-West student Erin Barnett sent a letter as well, blaming the school, saying that when students report bullying, “Nothing is done.”
Bitner was reportedly a talented musician. The school has provided a counseling center for students.
