Now, my point. My name is Stefanie. I joined a while ago, but didn't post anything yet. I'm reading "All She Wanted" the story of Brandon Teena, and it's a disturbing story. I can't believe a person could be so cruel as to kill another because of their sexual preferences. I have several gay, lesbian, or Bi friends and am straight myself. I couldn't ever imagine my life without them or imagine anyone hurting them. I watched "Anatomy of A Hate Crime" (the Matthew Sheppard story) and was in tears. It's so sad that people can treat others that way.
