It has been reported that Mitt Romney was one of those pathetic jerks who bullied sissy boys in high school. A boy named John Lauber who went to high school with Romney committed the sins of being effeminate and bleaching his hair. That was too much for the butch Mitt who led a group of lemur-like boys to tackle the young man. Once Mitt pinned him down, he attacked Lauber with scissors, hacking away at the offending blonde hair. It must have been terrifying. Lauber died in 2004. Naturally, Romney suffered no discipline for putting the little fag in his place. I have no doubt that he was quite proud of himself.
This wasn't the only incident. Whenever another fem boy spoke up in class, Romney called out "Atta girl."
Romney apologized when the stories hit the papers. He also claims no memory of these incidents. So, what is he apologizing for?
I don't have to wonder how humiliating it is to have a rich, popular boy call you a girl in front of the entire class. I don't have to wonder what it's like to be called sissy when you raise your hand with the right answer in class, and see the teacher suppress a laugh. I don't have to wonder how it feels to receive death threats as a teenager at a private Christian Academy simply because you're different and to have absolutely no one on Earth to turn to. No one. I don't have to wonder how it feels to be pushed around, have things stolen, called fag, sissy, queer. I know what it feels like and I know how deep the wounds are. The young assholes who abuse gay kids don't grow up to be decent men. They grow up to be old assholes.
