    So perhaps there is bullying that's based on difference, not just being gay or not.

      Nobody can claim ownership on victimhood when it comes to bullying.

      Bullies, like rapists, are equal opportunity targets. Rapists, for example, will rape someone not even of their own sexual orientation or someone elderly because it's about power, not about sex.

      They prey on those they view as weaker or less able to defend themselves and those they think it will be easier to marshall others against.

      This includes gay people, fat people, people with disabilities, people with Asperger's, racially different people (my white boyfriend was horribly bullied in a San Antonio public school with mostly Hispanic students, for example), etc.
