Remarkably Mark #44

#44: The Baker's Dozen, SFPD and Homophobia

Jeffrey The Gay Expat joins me to discuss the recent incident in San Francisco involving the Yale singing group The Baker's Dozen. We talk about violence, homophobia, and the effect of privilege in the legal system. Thanks to listener Nancy Belt Wilson for bringing this to my attention and providing links.

I spent the evening listening to a few of your podcasts, and they were very insightful and entertaining :)

Keep up the great work!

Mark,

Great show! I have been initiated into several frats and there was nothing homophobic about any of the hazings. They were all about tradition, (much like the military) the process is to break you down and then build you up in the brotherhood. Humiliation is a very small part and in my experiences there was nothing homophobic.

When I lived in Palo Alto SFO had one of the highest number of reported hate crimes. people are not as tolerant in SFO as you would think, police included.

Is it bad to say I think John Kerry is a pussy in a non gay way?
