I n , when Calvin Burdine was awaiting sentencing for allegedly stabbing his gay lover to death, the prosecuting attorney encouraged the jury in his closing remarks to award Burdine the death penalty, rather than life in prison, on the grounds that sending a gay man to prison was akin to sending a kid to a candy store.

All they did was moved me from one facility to another. And I saw my attacker again not too long after I tolded on him. Then I paid for it. Because I tolded on him, and he got even with me.
While many professional and management workers have crossed the threshold, the same is not true for the trades and labouring classes. Blue collar workers, and truckers specifically, are antsy about declaring their homosexual orientation. Now I know hundreds of drivers out there.
