    experienced gay bashing himself?  I'm straight, and what Horace put forth in his diary here just confirmed my impression of the whole episode.

    If the reporter had somehow challenged Grimm, or been in any sense confrontational, then maybe you could pass off the "you're not man enough" line as just a mano a mano response in a testoterone charged faceoff (i.e. "nothing personal, things just got heated").  But in this case, IMO it was entirely personal.  Grimm didn't state the "you're not man enough" line once, he repeated it.

    And then to follow up the "I'll throw you over the balcony" line, with "I'll break you in half, boy/boi".  Which was Grimm threatening to do first?  Throw him, then run downstairs and break him?  Or more likely rape him "break you in half like a boi", and then throw him over the balcony when he was done with him.

    I didn't need Horace's diary to get that impression.  I although you can critique the diary or the opinion in general, I don't see how the diary comes even close to an agenda driven piece that's more about Horace than Grimm.  That's just wrong.

      Just another way of saying "pre-existing bias".
      "Sensitive to it" doesn't grant one a free pass to just invent an argument without any proof other than two words which sound the same.   lol

      I'll await Horace's answers - but I want you to take a stab at this one - why were those statements refuting the Gawker writer's "boi" theory deliberately left out of this diary?   They seem somewhat relevent, don't they?

      It's about Horace because Horace has chosen to make it so, as did the Gawker writer.
