Sandpointer Tells Of Anti-Gay Bullying

Item: Boise rallies against anti-gay bullying/Jody May-Change, Boise Weekly

More Info: BSU student Justin Baxter described the years of bullying and taunting he endured in both middle and high school in Sandpoint, Idaho. Walking home one day after a bullying incident in his gym class locker-room, Baxter was struck in the head with a glass bottle. He fell unconscious to the grown breaking his nose as his attackers kicked him. “People do no understand what it is like to be in that kind of darkness,” said Baxter. But his message included some optimism. “I am happy that I am here today to tell you from the bottom of my heart to stick in there.”

Question: Do you believe bullying against gays is epidemic?
