The New Gay Panic Defense for Murdering Toddlers

Ronnie Paris Jr., 21, is on trial in Tampa, FL for murdering his three year old son after trying to box with him. His reasoning for boxing with a three year old, according to his wife's sister:
``He was trying to teach him how to fight,'' said Shanita Powell, Nysheerah Paris' sister. ``He was concerned that the child might be gay.''

How does a three year old suggest he is gay?

This is a really tragic story. Unfortunately, it only demonstrates how saturated our society is with homophobia.

The tale of filth...
