    I don’t quite understand these sorts of things. It only makes it that much harder for gay people who are really victims to get justice. Is it just for the attention?

  2. StraightGrandmother says

    I wonder where the investigation is at of that lesbian who had zip ties on hands and feet and claimed 3 men attacked her. Remember she crawled to the neighbors at like 4am. Also they spray painted slurs on her basement walls? There was gasoline but they couldn’t get a fire started, wasn’t that part of it? Where did that happen again?

  3. Shawn says

    when i noticed his nose when unscathed by the supposed attack I thought something was fishy, but i thought i’d keep my mouth shut and give him the benefit of doubt.

  4. says

    What is wrong with these people? Are they really gay? Or right wing plants? GoProud folks? I just don’t get it at all. Sure you get a few minutes of fame, but they’re always found out, and then they should be pariahs for life.

  5. DrJWL says

    The only thing I can think of is that these kids have NO idea how good they’ve got it these days and they do next to nothing to further the LGBT causes except follow Lady Gaga around. This may be the closest thing they have to marching for pride or whatever the rest of us grew up doing. Way to go moron, thanks for invalidating a thousand other LGBT assaults with one foolish incident.

  6. scott says

    Thanks a lot man…… just like the people who cry “rape!” and were never touched- makes it so much harder for actual victims to be believed.

  7. Lying Pig says

    What a sick guy. Here we all were feeling sorry for him yesterday and it turns out he’s just a famewh0re wanting attention and sympathy. Are people really THIS starved for attention these days that they would stoop to this level and lie about something so serious? Sick.

  8. cruz says

    thanks for tuning in our show, “Drunk Kids Doing Stupid Things for Attention.” Having said that, this kid need to do several hundred of hours doing community service for his false allegations and reporting.

  9. Jason says

    I suspected this was a fake. This guy claimed that he walked into a random Missoula bar and told patrons he was gay and looking for a gay bar. As if that has ever happened anywhere and as if he wouldn’t simply run a google search to find a gay bar. Ridiculous. In addition to being a fraud and a moron, this guy wears pink pants. Way to promote stereotypes!

  10. AG says

    I’m not surprised. A couple of weeks before Obama finally evolved on gay marriage you, left-wingers, were telling each other that it would be better if remained anti-gay-marriage, cause it can cost him re-election, Supreme Court nominations, and so on and so forth. So, I asked if there’s anything you wouldn’t do to help Obama’s re-election. And one of the regulars here admitted that he would do anything, he would lie, he would cheat, he would deny he is gay in order to help the Democrats. So, one of you decided to do just that for the cause. But got caught!

  11. Mike C. says

    Wait…the video was uploaded to YouTube AND he tried to claim a false attack. Initially, he did it for the attention, kids do that sometimes, they don’t understand the power of their words/actions, and they want to be in the spotlight in our 15-minutes-of-fame world. He does seem to be a kid.
    But if he knew the video was being posted publicly online, then he is really dumb. Makes me feel even worse

  12. says

    pray that he gets a life. Right on the very first time his facial expressions made me feel something fishy, may be he just wanted to get some media related project but first he needs to get a life.

  13. MarkUs says

    Any follow up on the two Texas lesbians who were shot (one died) or the lesbian from Nebraska (I think) who “survived” the attempt at burning down her home after her “attackers” has spray painted “We found you, dyke!” on the wall? The latter I believe was total make believe.

  14. Caliban says

    A$$wipe! His next video should be of himself reading “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” aloud while every gay person in Missoula kicks him in the rump.

    As others have said, it just introduces doubt where there shouldn’t BE any, so every time you hear about a bias-attack you have to parse the details to decide if it’s just another drama queen or not. In some ways these false attacks do more damage to our community than the real ones, because they make people skeptical of the real ones.

  15. TrueWords says

    With ALL of the attention and sympathy that is AUTOMATICALLY given to a real gay victim (as it is deserved)…it is not surprising that someone lied…

    These things will continue to happen….so stay tuned!!!

  16. says

    Well, he’s a pretty boy and will be very popular with all the xians and republicans already in prison.

    Maybe his boyfriend was already locked up?

    Here’s a hint, little girl, getting arrested doesn’t guarantee you will wind up in the same prison as whichever loser you just threw your life away for. Hope it was worth it.

    Seriously? It will be years before you realize what kind of damage these types of lies do. I don’t think you’re mean, evil, or malicious. I think you were drunk and young and stupid and this was the first thing that fell outta your mouth while you were trying to save your ego.

    Regardless… You’re gonna have some time to think about this little “Darwin Awards” entry. You better start going to the gym… Fast, while you still can.

  17. says

    You do it because you are stupid. You think you can get away with it. You do it because you are going to gain ample sympathy and perhaps become (in)famous. Did I say stupid? Oh yeah, you do it because you are a total sh*twad.

  18. Contrarian says

    Ditto the anger and disgust with this all too typical member of the fame whore generation. The only thing they really, really, care about is one of their many electronic gizmos going dead. He should also leave the makeup and mascara to real drag queens. They’d wipe the floor with this punk.

  19. NVTodd says

    Haaa, but what about all the people that posted saying they know this guy and what a great kid he is ?

    ROFL

    This WAY more common than anybody likes to admit.

  20. Patrick says

    Having been a victim of hate crimes myself in the late 80’s and early 90’s I am saddened that anyone would fake something as serious as this. I do not hate this kid or anything but I wish people who do things like this for attention would realize that it just inflames the right who will and do (reference to my current ongoing discussion with my cousin on facebook) use this kind of thing to say that all anti gay violence is either warranted or faked. Also, some of them will actually use an event like this to put forward the stupid and bigoted conspiracy theory that it is all part of some Gay mafia/ power agenda to overthrow the Western world and destroy Christianity.

  21. John says

    @straightgrandmother the police are still trying to find the men responsible. They have verified the crime was in fact committed so quit acting like it didn’t happen. It happened in Nebraska by the way.

  22. Anthony says

    I am relieved to see this is a hoax. When I first saw this I couldn’t believe this could happen in Missoula. I worked there on training for 2 weeks 4 years ago and was surprised by how very gay friendly it was. It’s a neat town in a beautiful place ans its on my short list for retirement living!

  23. andrew says

    They are scum. Worse than the Limbaughs and Hannatys. They bring disgrace on therir own people. I wish we could still tar and feather people of their ilk’

  24. ratbastard says

    His facial abrasions were inconsistent with a fight/brawl, they were simply a few light abrasions to mostly one side of his face, and as someone else pointed out, his nose is unscathed. I’ve been in street fights, and have had broken bones, broken nose, the whole nine yards, and it was certainly obvious to me this kid was lying about how he got his injuries.

    He should absolutely be charged with whatever’s on the book and will stick. Punks like him need to be taught a lesson. And unfortunately, like I’ve said before on other TR posts, MANY ‘hate’ crimes are fake, and police and prosecutors of course know this. They profile ‘victims’ the same way they profile perps.

  25. Martin says

    makes me sick…. so unfair for all the Matthew Sheppard’s of this world who Died alone after REALLY getting beaten to a pulp and we get this scum who FAKES a Bashing just to get attention… seriously, this disgusts me..

  26. Byron St. James says

    The next time we post skeptical statements about one of these incidents, I want you to remember this and the others like it before criticizing. Will the lesbian “home invasion” story be next? These people are really beneath contempt.

  27. Icebloo says

    It seems very suspicious to me that these cops in many states are now saying a lot of the gay attacks are faked. Could it be the cops don’t want to help the gays so they pretend the crime is fake and then they don’t have to investigate it OR tell the federal government that it is a hate crime, therefore, keeping the Feds out of the case.

    I can understand one or two of these cases being fakes but I am now deeply suspicious – I don’t trust local cops on gay issues. Their history has shown they can’t be trusted on gay bashings.

  28. KC says

    This is really sad, especially since I initially supported this idiot. In my 8 years in Missoula, I spent many great evenings at the Mo [Missoula] Club, and they’re very cool people. As are the vast majority of folks in Missoula – a place that, when I was there in the 90s, was run [quite well] by an all-female county board of commissioners, including an open lesbian who served multiple terms and was wildly popular.

    As for the Mo Club, if I would have asked where the local gay bar was, it’s a no-brainer – everyone there knows, and nobody cares. Go out the front door, stumble a half block and you’re there. Voila.

    I hope one day this kid realizes the damage he’s done. He needs to. In the meantime, he also needs to be subject to the same laws as every other idiot filing false charges.

    Sigh.

  29. Wilma Fingerdo says

    Why was the jail time suspended? He deserves a little lesson for his disgusting actions. Now people who actually are victims of anti-gay assault may be suspected of not telling the truth. I wanna kick his ass.

  30. FunMe says

    $300 fine and NO jail? What the heck!

    How is this going to deter other a**holes/jerks from doing the same thing?

    The stupid boy will get his karma, BAD karma.

  31. Matt says

    I don’t know his motives, but “crying wolf” is never appreciated. He should know better, and now that he’s sober I hope he realizes how insulting this stunt is to real victims.

    That said, the extremely violent comment thread here is more disturbing to me than his false statements. What does it say about us that we are willing to make such a quick turn to hate ourselves? He was drunk on his birthday and did something stupid. Do the people writing that they’d like to bash him now think they are providing extra justice by seeking blood? Do we think that the victims of violence want additional violence in the world perpetuated under their names? Let’s instead use this as a chance to celebrate his lack-of-assault, the progress that has been made (years ago he might actually have been assaulted), and try to think of more productive ways for him and us to move forward (e.g. maybe he can be recruited to help push for anti-gay animus to be added to Montana’s hate crime legislation; we learned yesterday that it is not currently covered).

  32. ratbastard says

    @Matt,

    People like him who do and have done similar things really are deserving of a lot of contempt. There are real ‘victims’ in this world, real victims of violent crime, and real victims of real ‘hate’ crimes. Joseph, and others like him, basically mock the real victims of violent crime and ‘hate’ crime, and absolutely make it more difficult for them to both report an actual ‘hate’ incident, and to get police to seriously investigate.

    Joseph is deserving of all the mean spirited responses on here. But, know what? I doubt very much if he cares, and he’s probably read these posts [if he’s been to this site at all] and other online forums that have reported on his story, with a smirk on his face. Something tells me Joseph isn’t quite the ‘nice’ guy he’s been described as,by some.

  33. jay_max says

    While this guy is a total @sshole, so are each and everyone of you who without thinking this through, slandered Missoula – a VERY liberal and tolerant city in Montana – and the good folks who live there. You all should be apologizing as well.

  34. ratbastard says

    @JAY_MAX,

    One of the things I’ve learned through experience in my 35 years on this planet is ‘progressives’ like to eat their own. I grew up in and live in one of a small handful of ‘progressive’ Nirvanas in America. The people here across socioeconomic backgrounds are a pretty tolerant people. But whenever anything with just the tinge of non-P.C. happens here, such as a ‘hate’ crime, or alleged hate crime, the vitriol from The Left is deafening. Suddenly this ‘progressive’ Mecca is a backward, bigoted, hateful redneck hell-hole, where-as 24 hrs earlier they were praising it’s tolerance. I’ve also noticed MANY hardcore ‘progressives’ are quite simply contemptuous of certain socioeconomic classes, regardless if they display tolerance. In a word, they are snobs. These people look down on the ‘locals’ in any area they inhabit, whether it be San Francisco, NY, Boston or Montana.

  35. Fenrox says

    Haha! I think this is awesome. Also, kinda class that he admits to it now. What!? He pranked you, or trolled you, GET OVER IT. Attributing every little thing to our people at large strikes of the same oversensitivity

    I too want to know why he did it though…

  36. Darrell says

    Since Missoula is a large University town, In this day and age the student body is probably pretty tolerant. He obviously thought he could get the “Attention” Very poor justifacation in regards to what he though he could pull off.

  37. GeorgeM says

    Why did this kid get a suspended jail term? He should be there now
    I think most people are nice, few are haters and every place has them like here in CT.

    this letter may be regarded as a letter to the editor, a letter to the campus, a letter to the diversity department, and/or a letter to lawmakers. i have had plenty of experience with homosexuality in my lifetime, and i am now formally suggesting to newspapers and colleges and lawmakers, the repeal of the public endorsement of homosexuality – be it seen on tv or taught in schools or condoned on the lawbooks. i believe that until pupils and politicians and publishers make an effort for homosexuality to once again be cause for public ridicule, until people feel compromised and embarrassed by seeing a “discovery zone” in naked members of their own gender, they are going to follow in chastity bono’s sexually-dysfunctional footsteps and they’ll be apt to treat their gender like its presence on their body is some big mistake. unless people find self-compromise in praising naked members of their own gender, they are not going to fully respect themselves and that lack of self-respect will eventually lead to a lack of respect for anything…which will, in time, lead to a societal downfall.

    i went to the woods because i wanted to live deliberately. i came out of the woods because i didn’t want to come out of the closet singing lady gaga without any comprehension of myself. let me begin my letter by mentioning two lesbians who were shot in texas.

    mollie judith olgin and mary christine chapa – these two are all over the internet. they are the two lesbians who were shot in texas. okay, i’m sure that the one who died was put out of the misery that reeked of gender-disorientation, and i hope the one who didn’t die realizes the injustice she is committing against herself with the self-compromise that is always the mark of homosexuality. i think a line from my screenplay puts that self-compromise best, “How can you expect to be man enough to satisfy my hunger for a man…or anyone else’s hunger, for that matter…if YOU hunger”.

    to put the err of homosexuality in another way, “if you’re not man enough to be your man, good luck filling anyone else’s void”.

    back to mollie and mary. now, with females being of the lesser gender, monthly egg-leaks and booby milk-leaks not withstanding, one might think that it’s okay for a woman not to be all the woman she needs if women are not meant to be strong. getting right down to it, the egg-leak and milk-leaks alone tell us that females are tools to be used by men for egg-fertilization and by babies for nourishment. so, given that women were meant to be used as tools, it’s still a fallacy to say that it’s okay for the weaker gender to be gay. it’s a fallacy because it doesn’t take manly physical strength to be true to oneself. all it takes is a little self-love, self-respect and self-devotion to feel compromised by the notion of homosexuality, all it takes is for one to take their own gender seriously. taking another line from one of my screenplays online at http://www.anti-gay.com, i will state that the line was written BEFORE chastity bono’s gender-dysfunction led her to a sex-change operation: “It works for you, huh, treating your gender like its presence on your body is some big mistake?”

    mollie judith olgin and mary christine chapa seemed like unabashed lesbians in the close-up picture of a kiss i saw online. lesbians are females whose own gender-disorientation leads them to feel a pressing curiosity of the female gender. now, we are all born with no knowledge of anything, we are all born disoriented and “in the dark” about everything, and if olgin and chapa were still in grade-school then i could probably dismiss their gender-naivete with the words “it will pass”. these little feminivoids were not in grade-school, they were almost in their 20s and, being lesbian-lovers, i can assume that they were still clueless enough about femininity to treat the female body as a “discovery zone” and spend hours and hours playing with it like it was bought at some kind of curiosity-shop.

    that is what the word GENDERIVOID means. one can be a masculivoid or a feminivoid, but a genderivoid is one who is cluelessly curious about either gender. this curiosity (or lack of real gender-knowledge) comes about from a lack of gender-identity, which comes about through experience living and not through an inexplicable “born this way” panacea. desire for another person can’t come into existence without reason, nobody actively wants anything for no reason. if two gay “men” say that they are only inspecting each others’ bodies for something to do, what’s stopping them from inspecting females? a lack of curiosity is stopping them from inspecting females, that’s what’s stopping them. why inspect her gadget if it doesn’t satisfy the curiosity of gay “men”?

    mollie judith olgin and mary christine chapa were naive genderivoids to be using homosexuality as a crutch for their gender-dysfunctions and gender-curiosities. now, i understand the need for sexual gratification, but unless one gets their homosexual gratification with porn and masturbation, there is an element of self-compromise involved in being gay with another person more than there is with porn – just like there is an element of wife-compromise involved in hiring a hooker more than there is with buying playboy. i guess the army got rid of their “be all that you can be” slogan once they started recruiting fags – “be all that you can be” is offensive to gays because it brings to mind the words “be all the man you need”. and anyone promoting that much self-respect is regarded by gays as a gay-basher.

    don henley had an lp in 1985 called “building the perfect beast,” dr. frank-n-furter marveled at brad majors and called him “such a perfect specimen of manhood,” yet i’m sure gays (who shout about their self-love to anyone who is apt to believe them) would regard as pathetic or conceited or not based in reality, any man building himself up to be his own “perfect specimen of manhood”. still, that is the cure for homosexuality, just a sense of self and a sense of self-respect and a sense of self-devotion.

    wrapping up, i IMPLORE pupils, politicians and publishers – and producers of primetime – to start introducing people to the ways that self-negligence helps a man to find the man of his dreams in someone else. “don’t take yourself too seriously,” i’ve heard it many times, but unless a man takes his own gender seriously then he is apt to become a genderivoid who cannot answer the question “what are you looking for in a man” with one word. instead of being confident enough to provide the one-word answer of “me,” he’s “building the perfect beast” and offering a litany of masculine attributes like he’s conjuring up jack nicholson with cher, susan sarandon and michelle pfiffer.

    i’ll put paula abdul’s “opposites attract” up to lady gaga’s “born this way” anyday. to take another line from one of my screenplays online, i will say that “opposites” is what you feel inside about yourself, it’s not strictly male or female on the outside! i’m jealous, therefore i lust! i’m jealous of your body like you’re jealous of saxy’s! i need a man in my life for the same reason you need a woman, i feel left out!”
