Erik Rhodes Bullied Gay Kids at School and When One Calls Him OUt About it He Calls Him a Fag
Charming POS. No wonder he's a party favorite of Bryan Singer's.
"I really didnt come to terms with being gay until i was out of high school. Had plenty of GF’s and didn’t really have to hide anything, i honestly believed i was straight.
My twin brother and i tortured the gay kids in my high school. Which was weird when years later i ran into 2 of them while out at Limelight in the city… This one comes running up to me screaming “you have to be fucking kidding! You made my life hell”. To which i could only reply, “I’m sorry, i didnt know”… of course he forgave me then tried to hook up with me…typical fag.
Trust me i could sit here and say “it does get better” and be part of that retarded movement but no, i dont think it gets better, i just think after awhile you stop giving a fuck.
He kind of has a point...after a while you do just come to terms with it and don't care what anyone thinks. Lets face it, there is always going to be homophobia and you just have to tell those people to go to hell.
He sounds like a horrible person.
At least I won't feel guilty when I laugh about his inevitable suicide.
The wrong people kill themselves.
Erik Rhodes is a damaged, bitter queen.
I can't believe that such an accomplished and brilliant young man would behave in such a callous manner.
What an asshole
what a total wanker - hope he finds a corner to curl up and die in
He sounds like a smug, self-loathing prick. A true ugliness of the heart.
The bully has a fantastic body. In the gay culture (which we all know has the consciousness level of a 13 year old girl), that places him at the TOP, at least in a bar. Looks and muscles make you more important than mere geeks and skinny guys who he tormented in highschool. So in his own way, he is still tormenting them from a position of privilege, isn't he?
Oh gee thanks for judging every single gay man and woman in the 'gay culture' by your hardbitten stereotype.
He hates himself as much as anyone. Read his blog. He talks about how fucked up he is.
Honey, go get a free gay magazine or newspaper, if your town has one. The handsome and muscular male is idolized like a god. His naked form is strewn across a new car (advertizement for a car dealership), his body is used to advertize clubs and bars. I live in WEHO, one of the gayest neighborhoods in the United States. I know the bar scene and I depicted it accurately.
This does not mean that all gay people are like this, but the "bar scene" is pretty much like that. On a hot day, guys with bodies out of some porn flick are often lined up outside without their shirts on, showing off their pecs and abs. They are the ideal in gay culture.
If you are one the people who instead likes ultra-skinny boys, that's fine but you aren't going to find them "strewn across a new car" in gay rags. They also won't be very popular in WEHO bars. I guess you could, for example, create a bar just for fat gay men or skinny gay men.
Jesus, why does someone have to pick at everything. Some people come here purposely to find a post that they believe insults them.
My high school bully was a big buff guy like this. He was a football player and he hung out with jocks. He used to phycially assault me at the lockers and say, "You look like a fag. I bet you're a cocksucker."
A year after graduation he walked into a gay bar I was in, apologized, and asked me to (slow) dance with him. I accepted.
The worst homophobes are closeted gays. Look at Roy Cohn!
[quote]Melodrama is in the original post where in [bold]infers[/bold] that he currently calls those he bullied 'fags'.
I'm happy you and Karofsky made-up, Kurt. WHET Blaine though?
Isn't he the one who is supposedly certifiably insane?
He's evil and his defenders are even worse.
he's a sick puppy, have mercy on his tormented soul
He's too stupid to be evil.
He has a twin brother? Does his brother do porn too? Have they ever done a sex scene together?
That took a whole 34 posts to finally get asked.
Dataloungers, you're slipping.
Is the twin brother gay?
How could he not know he was gay all the way through high school, considering how gay (not mannerisms...his addiction to cock) he is now.
Actually his blog is incredibly honest, I think that is the point. In an odd way, he is trying to be a better and hopefully a happier person and for him this is a struggle. I wish the guy well.
Who is this guy and why should I care?
R13 and R16 nailed it, people will still like this guy because he's hot or because they think he's hot.
Let's try an experiment. Let him kill himself and let's see if anyone gives a rat's ass that a miserable piece of shit like him is dead.
He looks like the on guy in high school who bashed me for being gay. He'd push me up against the lockers. "You look like a fag. I bet you're a faggot, aren't you?"
Two years later, no shit, he walked into the same gay bar I was in, asked me to forgive him, and we slow-danced to Beat of Burden because I was drunk.
I knew I was gay when I was 5. I have never felt guilty about it. The worst homophobes are closet cases.
Can someone tell me who the fuck this nobody is?
See if he got it on with his twin brother like a normal person, none of this would have happened.
[quote]Trust me i could sit here and say “it does get better” and be part of that retarded movement but no, i dont think it gets better, i just think after awhile you stop giving a fuck.
When we tell kids "it gets better" we mean they get away from assholes like you.
If true it's further proof for the general belief that bullies attack gays to compensate for their own latent homosexuality.
But what about bullies who pick on fat, nerdy, black, Chinese, 4-eyes, beanpole, midget?? Are they all compensating for their own latent fat, nerdy, black, Chinese, beanpole, midget, 4-eyed self?
Is he angry because he looks like he has Down's Syndrome? He's so gross and base. Look at the "words" in that post on his blog.
r45, yeah, what about them?
Bullies use threats and violence to seperate themselves from the weak groups they otherwise would be part of. A closeted bully can very well attack all sorts of "outcasts" to lash out.
LOL already 2 wankers here pretending they ended slow-dancing with some football jock bully who bashed their heads in high school. Bet they are fingering their arses will fantasizing that such thing ever happened. I guess the abuse they recived fucked up their minds to the point they ended with a crush for the bully.
Miss Rhodes is now living the life of luxury in Italy with his sugar daddy. Lucky whore.
I can't think he's hot anymore after reading his blog. Total boner killer. Porn stars should be seen, not heard.
Is it true his asshole has turned inside out?
Funny, I never thought he was that goodlooking, pretty much average.
Well today he stopped giving "A Fuck" and killed himself. What a sad waste of a life.
Bye bye pigfucker Rhodes. Have fun roasting in hell!
Disgusting Piece of Shit
I knew a porn star who bullied kids once. AND THEN HE DIED.
You have to admit some of those marys in school deserved it. They were always mincing around and lisping and skipping jump-a-rope with the girls.
And you'd hit the ball to them and they'd scream and run away.
They were just asking to be wailed on.
The gay ones were the only ones effected because the normals would fight back
Cunt at r56 - thank your lucky stars that you never met this "gay one"...
Physically weak and sensitive is not exclusively a homosexual trait. Mitt would surely beat up any nonconforming or non-pack stray male. He is surely lupine.
See how he punishes dogs.
Karma for the gay gay basher.
Ugh, and the same posters who were hating on him up above back in November are GUSHING and swooning over him today. How soon you people flip-flop.
You all make me sick. Bullies are entitled to forgiveness after all they are the true victims. Anybody who wants to inflict pain and suffering are not healthy on the inside and are polluting their souls. Mr Rhodes was damaged and all you can do is spit on his corpse.
I used to tease other suspected gays and other losers too, I was kind of mean but not a real bully. I didn't have the heft to be a bully and didn't like fighting. I feel pretty bad about it now but honestly it was just a survival mechanism, like look over there, a bigger loser than me! Awful, I know.
I hope R56 gets hit in the head with a ball, preferably a boulder.
Asshole, bullies attack anyone they perceive as weak/vulnerable.
That's right r62, real smart of you. Attack violence with violence instead of intellect and integrity.
[quote]Cunt at [R56] - thank your lucky stars that you never met this "gay one"...
You're right I never know what to do when guys run off crying to their mommies.
[quote]I hope [R56] gets hit in the head with a ball, preferably a boulder.
First of all I doubt you could lift it. Then you certainly couldn't throw it, unless you threw it like a girl.
Face it I'm gay and I'd beat the hell out of most of you. Stop mincing and man up
r65 turns me on.
R65, you're an idiot with a big mouth.
There isn't one way to be in this life and who in the fuck are you to decide whether or not someone is "manly" enough? If they don't live up to your definition, that doesn't mean they should have the shit beaten out of them.
Your attitude is the reason some choose to "man up" by shooting up their schools.
R56/R65 is the anti-fem troll who got slammed by the WM a couple months ago. He's back spewing the same homophobic bullshit.
Rhodes had a repulsive side to him that probably came from expressing his internalized homophobia, just like R56/R65.
Of course he did. That's what most closeted gay men do.
The fact he couldn't come to terms with being gay probably contributed to his death. He probably never came to terms with it.
[quote]Bullies are entitled to forgiveness after all they are the true victims.
Unlike the bullied who did nothing to you. Just existed. And, the bully comes along and...
... gives them a priceless lesson about the realities of life and that self-worth is the only answer because other people cannot validate you. Get it, r70? Maybe you enjoy the Its Get Better campaigns telling you it's wonderful to be a victim but I don't need anybody to hold my hand and wipe my tears. I choose self-empowerment through knowledge of reality.
R71, you are one fucked up piece of shit of a person.
R71, this asshole called gay kids in high school faggots and made their life a living hell for reasons only that he didn't like himself. Should they have beaten the shit of him? Yes. I would have. He would never have called me or any gay kid faggot again. He would have been jumped instantly after school if he had. But, that's me, not anybody else. Not every else fights back. I am in no way supporting victimhood, but you have to defend those who are think or they are victims.
* defend those who think they are victims.
R75, yes you have to defend them but not through giving them some warped promise that respect will come from the world. You have to teach them to respect themselves, then they are untouchable.
R77, exatly. You are 100% correct.
yeah, untouchable until some asshole who thinks bullying sissies is justifiable knocks some poor kids front teeth in.
What makes bullies think they are tough if they bully some kid half his size and strength? I never understood this. There is nothing manly about beating on a small kid.
He was seriously troubled. No doubt about that.
It's easy to judge someone else without having to confront or admit our own guilt and remorse on an anonymous message board.
At least I won't feel guilty when I laugh about his inevitable suicide.
r80. It's about power and alpha dog status.
what a total wanker - hope he finds a corner to curl up and die in
Are u going to join the Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston club anytime soon?
The funny part about that was that i had a needle dangling from my arm when the news of Whitney came on the TV. I thought… “well this one is for you, dumb bitch”
r65 - no, I'd have punched you until you were sensible...
Then kickboxed you into oblivion...
Amateur Heavyweight who lost weight kickboxing... with rage.
how butch r87
Does anyone know where on Long Island he was from? It keeps saying he was born on Long Island, but I'm curious the town as I grew up there.
He's a 'mo so that must me he was from QUEENS.
And yes QUEENS is on Long Island.
I am so, so, so glad this piece of vile pointless subhuman trash has removed himself from this planet. It's a good start, anyway. Now if we could just get the others like him to follow suit...
As a gay kid, viciously bullied in middle and HS, I was shocked how many of my tormenters apologized later. Men and women. They admitted their homoerotic feelings made them HATE me.
In time, I forgave them but the scars remain.
[quote]In time, I forgave them but the scars remain.
That's odd. I thought when you (genuinely) forgive people that it will heal the wounds (and frees you) from the traumatic past? I thought that was the main selling point for the whole forgiveness thing.
[quote] I was shocked how many of my tormenters apologized later.
Did you apologize to them for provoking them?
I can just see you prancing and mincing and snitching to the teachers.
Thanks for the input, Pollyanna, at r93. The real world is a bit more complicated than that.
What kind of sociopath tortures people to throw the gay scent off of themselves: "Hey look, I can't be queer- I abuse them!"?
I read Michelangelo Signorile admitted to bullying, too. He's invisible to me.
masculine gay men are ashamed and repulsed by faggots as straights are!
straights call masculine gay men "faggots" as well, r97
A faggot is a flamer
There's a word for you, R99, but it isn't used much in high society . . . outside of a kennel.
This guy was a piece of work, but sadly, there are gay men just like him still alive.
Same old tired bullshit from R97.
Erik Rhodes . Or James naughtin. I knew him personally. This is my Take on him in as little words as possible: a victim
Of incest, sex addict in the highest form, narcissistic, self absorbed. SOCIOPATH. Disloyal, insecure, manipulative, sadistic as well as masochistic. I've never loved a man as much as I loved him. But a true sociopath wants your pity so he can work you like a fucking puppet. Go ahead and fall victim to his trickery, he gave a shit about no one but himself. His sexuality came from an extremely dark place. If you knew of the severe sexual abuse this man experienced, the idea of seeing him as an object of sexual desire would cease entirely. It did for me. If you knew of the thousands of sex partners he's taken, without limits or boundaries, because his boundaries were compromised at an early age. this man was so broken, and this was before the porn, or the crystal meth. I'm not sure we pity is the answer, that was his weapon of choice. But I will say this- his mother and stepfather should be ashamed that they created a monster, someone incapable of giving or receiving love. Someone obsessed with sex, and who betrayed him at an early age. You contributed to his self destructiveness,And the pain he caused so many others. I cannot help but love James Naughtin. But it came at the price of my own sanity. Some people are too toxic to engage any further. Nonetheless, may his internal suffering be over.
That's okay. You're SOOOO hot Erik. I forgive you. You can throw every homosexual in an oven for all I care! I want to suck your cock! Or, I did at least! You are fascinating!
Wow. Is R103 copied from antoher site/posting or is that posted here ?
Interesting to possibly be hearing from someone who claims to know (and still love) this guy. Pretty much describes what I expected. Sounds like Erik was (obviously) troubled from an early age .... but also btought a lot of trouble and pain to those who tried to care about him.
Men generally think with their dicks, gay or straight. Righteous gay men call it sexual politics/ sexual liberation. Whatever.
Being a male myself, I prefer an alcoholic beverage. My dick shuts up and I can get on with life.
Incest ? If so why does his twin turn out fine
I have discovered he died some days ago and it really made me feel strange. I live in Brazil and I'm a christian - i've been trying to give up on homossexuality for a year or so. I used to watch his videos and stuff. There was even a video of him as a teacher in which he tops and bottoms. It was one of my ex-boyfriend's favorites (because he said it was cool seeing a big guy like him doing both). I unfortunately relate to James/Erik a lot because of an acid relation between my sexuality, looks, and inner reality. Shoot, I don't wanna die like him, but I'm as well as him I'm addicted to sex to the highest level, can never keep a relationship going without cheating, wrecked up my ex's mind because of a blend of jealousy, envy and mistreating, and I'm totally addicted to juicing/steroids and my body. What I look from the outside only depicts a small portion of me since I do act like a whore sometimes when I manhunt almost everywhere, but when I'm all by myself I wish I could be different.
I hope God forgives me for being this kind of person, since I have been trying hard to change it 'cause I don't like being like this - just like James/Erik sometimes loathed being like that. I hope I could get to talk to someone who really knew him in person so I could talk some more ask about his true belieds...
Can someone post where he was burried so that all the kids that were bullied by him can go and dance on his fucking grave.
R108 There is no God. And if there is, he's a DICK.
r108 you are conflating being gay with being a narcissistic jackass. At some point it's about making decisions about how you will behave and react. You don't have to be a whore on steroids just because you're gay.
You can be gay and be a good person.
I'm not saying that all gay men are bad people. I'm saying that I related to him on that point where you don't wanna be like that but you still can't change that destructive behavior. That's why I feel like knowing more about him - so I can find out if he used to feel that dualistic way of thinking himself like me.
DING DONG THE WHORE IS DEAD! WHICH DEAD WHORE? THAT DEAD WHORE! DING DONG, THE CRAZY WHORE IS DEAD!!!
In feel like I understand most any situation, even if I don't agree or feel the same way. However, I have trouble understanding when somebody intentionally hurts themselves to the point of suicide or when people kill other people.
I understand some destruction to ones body in persuit of fun or a high but I don't understand ppl like Erik. There is something I am missing. In hindsight the blog was all about documenting his slow, intentional palth to suicide. he was so twisted and sick. WTF happened to him and why did his twin turn out so normal?
[quote]i've been trying to give up on homossexuality...
Is this 1950?
can we let him rest in peace, he was a good friend. i wish i could have done more to help him.. you guys don't get it, people who hurt others are hurt themselves.
R113 = Chi Chi
Ya know what? All this does is confirm what everyone thought was actually going on with these type of guys in our youths.......their overbearing and obnoxious displays were nothing but a cover-up for deeply rooted insecurity about their sexuality. So next time you see someone acting like this in a school or work situation, your first thought about what's really eating at this guy and motivating him to be a complete moron is probably going to be spot on. Such a sad commentary on how society almost forces some people into mental illness.
I knew James back when he worked as a stripper on Long Island. He was all of 19 and even though I could tell he didn't have the best home life, he tried to be kind and nice to everyone he met. We all make mistakes when we are young, he was no different. I hope he is now at peace and I hope his brother finds peace and comfort in knowing how much his twin loved him.
Oh, well......he IS dead, and I don't think it was a "good" death. Heart attack, due to steroids, in his sleep, about 0530, June 2012. And boy, he was a miserable unhappy lout.
BUT: he did not call the guy a fag because he called him out about teasing him, he called him a fag because he hit on him. a couple of losers.
And, that is that.

I think this is Chi Chi talking. Was he whored out as a child? This whole thing doesn't sound right.
Why did you bump this thread up again eight months later, r120?
R16 You really needed four paragraphs to say "good looking people get more attention"? I think I understand why you claim you know the bar scene. You sound like a typical drunk.
Honey, do you realize you're trying to be cunty towards a poster from eight months ago? I don't think you're going to do a lot of damage at this point.
Erik Rhodes bullied me at school. Then he died.
Watching an old dvd of his now. For a homophobe, he seems to like putting the dick up into the other man. And having the other man put his dick up into him.
What kind of trauma did he suffer as a child? Steroid injections?
