First, we've got this video of a group of young teens harassing a man as he leaves the Minneapolis Pride parade, including walking past some security guards from a local building:
The man in the video has utter composure and reacts in the best, most impossible manner. Also, don't read the comments on the video. It's a combination of racism and heterosexism.
Then some people were kicked out of a taxi by a homophobic driver (after being picked up in front of a gay bar).
And out of Minneapolis, there's this.
How? How in this day and age can people still be like this? How do we as surrounding society allow this to happen? Why do we create these spaces where homophobia thrives and grows?
To the people in these situations, my utter condolences.
