Don't Get in Fights

I had friends in college who liked to get drunk and get in fights. It was annoying, to say the least. I certainly never understood the desire to get in fights generally, but more than that I didn't get that nobody seemed to think that they could have serious life altering injuries or even death from a fight. At the very least, cosmetic facial scarring is a pretty likely outcome. Broken jaws are too, and they can be pretty serious. Also, it takes one bad bump to the head for things to go really really wrong.

It's not okay to just kick the crap out of someone. There can be consequences. The gay bashing element is important here, but it isn't the only issue. Don't be fucking idiots and beat people up. It might fuck them - and you - up for life.
The two men who were insulted by anti-gay slurs and viciously attacked in Center City Philadelphia nearly two years ago filed a lawsuit earlier this week against the three Bucks County defendants who were criminally charged in the assault.
