I know I am getting old but since when would a gay man want to have sex with a woman in the first place? Seems irrelevant.


She killed herself because of things written on twitter. She wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Have you ever heard of depression? do you really think that a person who attempts suicide does not realize even at the time that he's doing it that it's wrong. Why do you think some suicide notes will include an apology (sometimes even to God) for the decision to try to commit suicide?

Have you ever heard of mental-health problems? Do you really think that equates with stupidity? Was Robin Williams stupid?

What about abuse survivors who turn to drugs, gambling, sex, etc to numb the pain, escalate it until they can't escalate it anymore, and then finally off themselves? do you really think they don't know what they're doing is wrong? The point is they don't know how to get out of their predicament since they might never have learnt any other option.

When he's paid to do so?

The article blames twitter for the suicide.

Suck it up butter cup, and get over it. That's what needs to be done.


And to be honest, I don't give a fu ck if you like what I say or not. I've been there, and done that. Then I took responsibility for my own life. Something too many aren't willing to do these days and prefer to shift that off on to someone else.

She should have just quit and moved on. Her mistake was putting it on twitter where every self righteous twit can weigh his/her worthless opinion.

She opened here mouth and said some discriminatory stuff, while at the other time some of the people who harassed her should be held just as accountable for what they said in return.

She didn’t say anything discriminatory. I myself am bi and totally agreed with the position she took.

From what I’ve read about her I doubt it was the bullying itself that did it. She was close either way. This just wound up being the last straw.

The position being, fear of contracting HIV?

They weren’t gay, they were bi. As for the want part - it’s a business. They were getting paid to do a job.

Yes, specifically from these men. Gay porn does have lower standards when it comes to testing and safety on this issue. That makes them a lot riskier than her usual straight performers.

John Holmes became a crossover from the straight side of porn and he infected a bunch of porn stars with HIV?

At a time when testing wasn’t a regular part of the industry. Also, I doubt his crossover was the first time he had sex with a man.

I don't know.
John Holmes life kind of went for a shit show before he crossed over. I think he was shunned from straight porn when he crossed over.
Do you remember the Wonderland Killings?

I suspect there was more to taking here own life than the social media stuff. That being said, I can't imagine a porn star being worried about her reputation, so i'm obviously prejudiced.

I think its the bullying mentality of social media. I understand you don't consider a porn stars reputation even a point, but in her world it probably had some meaning.

He called your post Horseshit. What don't you understand?

You're clueless as usual. You're the biggest bully on this forum. It figures you'd take this tack on this news story.

You're such a man of God.

Now now, don't be so sarcastic against Jerry.

When he reads 'Love your neighbour as yourself,' he looks up 'neighbour' in the dictionary, accepts the narrowest interpretation, befriends the neighbour next door, and tells the person two doors down 'you're not my neighbour so F off.'

She could have just said no and let it be at that. It is her body and she can do whatever she wants to with it, no one is disputing that.

She wrote

whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know.

It is discriminatory and if i change it around but keep the theme of what she said, it can be shown she was being discriminatory. If i were to change out the underlined part you would see where i'm coming from.

whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a black guy from Africa who could give you HIV, just to let cha know.
