I know I"m not the only one whose emotions are going crazy over this Penn State story.

Here's a great column by CBS Sports columnist Gregg Doyel.

So often, we feel forgotten in the world. But today, people got our backs. People like Gregg Doyel:

But he grew old, this knight so bold / And upon his heart a shadow / Fell as he found / No spot on the ground / That looked like El Dorado.

I've read so much about it. I'm just in shock. So preventable. So sad. It makes me feel like there is nothing we can do. I'm feeling pretty hopeless tonight.

It really upsets me that people have continued to say:

"Homosexual Pedophile" and "Homosexual Child Rape"

when discussing or posting on forums online or in person regardin the Penn State situations regarding Sandusky and those that surrounded him.

What does one have to do with the other? It would appear that some people would like to vilify homosexuality with pedophelia or sexual molestion of children. Or that Pedophelic persons are merely homosexual's.

Just like in the Catholic Sexual Abuse situations, there are people out there that insist on claiming that the Priests who offended against male children, were simply "homosexual's".

I get really sick of the implied "connections" these ignorant people out there put into forums and postings. Not only as a "gay" man but overall because of what we all have gone through regarding sexual abuse, as children, as teenagers, as adults as well whether by a male perpetrator or a female perpetrator.
