Suspects in Pittsburgh gay bashing slated to go to trial Tuesday

  • The Pittsburgh convenience store where Brandon White was attacked

On February 4, 20-year-old Brandon White was brutally attacked as exited a convenience store in southwest Atlanta's Pittsburgh neighborhood. Three men punched him, pushed him to the ground, and kicked him once he was down. The entire thing was caught on video - video that was subsequently posted to the internet, presumably by the attackers themselves. "No faggots in Jack City," one of the men says prior to the attack, a statement many believe makes the motive pretty obvious. White was beaten because he's gay.

The case, which shook both southwest Atlanta and the local LGBT community, is headed to court on Tuesday, according to Georgia Equality. Four men, Dorian Moragne, Christopher Cain, Darael Demare Williams, and Javaris Bradford, are being charged with robbery, aggravated assault, and participation in criminal street gang activity. Moragne, Cain, and Williams - all of whom have extensive criminal records - were apprehended shortly after the attack. There appears to be some confusion about the apprehension of the fourth man, Javaris Bradford (he's not listed as an inmate at the Fulton County Jail; the APD is checking to see if he was ever captured).

  • Aw, they have so much frowns in common.

It's a strange and beautiful thing when sitting through a third motherfucking hour of this show feels worthwhile. The actual finale? I don't know. Josh definitely did NOT get his suit at Casual Male XL: Big and Tall, which is where he should be shopping, and until now I never knew that people who were...

Oh, there's ever so much for the men to tell, mostly about why and how much they hate Andrew and J.J.

BUT FIRST Ashley Hebert and J.P. Hebertbaum are back because she's pregnant and needs people to see that she has breasts now. But, no, that's not enough. She's going to find out whether she's having a girl or a...

  • But, hey, she really loved Ghosts in the Graveyard.

It's a question as old as time itself: If you had to spend your life with either an adult baby or a banana-handed cyborg who makes a very literal "MWAH" sound every time he kisses you, which would you choose?

I came up with an answer that was unsatisfactory to my viewing companions, but we'll get to that later.

First, poor Chris! Just...

  • The best part of the whole episode

How's this for a coincidence: we send seven marginally employed single people and a shitty country duo called American Young to Belgium to dry hump on park benches and swap spit in a monastery's pottery barn, and then Belgium handily beats the U.S. in the World Cup. Everyone should pretend to be mad at The Bachelorette just like we're all pretending...
