gay bashing

The former "Empire" actor is accused of falsely reporting to police that the phony attack was real.
Chicago police tweeted the announcement in their investigation of filing a false report after the actor said he was beaten in a racist, homophobic assault.
As a mostly masculine, caucasian man from New York I had little pushback when I chose to live as an openly gay man. In fact, the majority of the time I forget I am part of a sexual minority.
Well, what can I say? I do prefer it when people tell me straight in the face that they know, instead of judging silently from afar. Honest, unwarranted verification of my gayness doesn't cause me any anxiety or distress at all.
