Excellent work. You could tell the phobe was feeling quite nervous and a little afraid of what was going to happen. Good. Good that there are finally consequences to his actions. Maybe he'll change. That poor neighborhood boy (the 13yo). And really, too bad for the phobe, too. Look how old he is and is still probably repressed (since he's gay, too). That's really too bad. What a miserable life.

Probably the guy taking the video is more at risk of being charged with something- he is kind of harassing the (very gay) guy walking down the street & then posting the video on-line without the guys permission, which the guy can then sue for damaging his reputation (whether justified or not)

OK- seriously now- you have a 13 year old kid who has been harassed 'for years' by this guy at recess, but the parents wouldn't do anything? So this guy is going up to a school yard a calling a kid a 'faggot' (for years, so since the kid was, lets say for arguments sake 10), and the school or the parents won't do anything? A grown man harassing kids at school wouldn't be something that parents would report? If they were scared for the kids safety, wouldn't it be worse if they guy actually did something to a bunch of kids at recess?

R78 is the kind of uneducated fool that covers his shit with more shit and then insists that you're wrong for smelling shit.
1. Homophobia is "caused by" non-stereotypical male behavior.
2. Non-stereotypical male behavior causes other men (and BOYS) to have trouble with their own gayness.
3. It's not homophobic to be homophobic, and to "dislike" non-stereotypical male behavior.
4. ("Nearly") all gay men are attracted to "masculinity" and so non-stereotypical male behavior is "self-defeating" because all gay men want to act in ways that are not natural to them so they can snag men. In other words, gay men need to be better bait and not be themselves because it's all about fucking.

Well, the only thing DOCUMENTED is the gay guy "harassing" the homophobe by filming him walking. So, yeah, the 'phobe" would have more of a cause of action for harassment than the gay guy. Unless there were witnesses to the guy saying "faggot." Nothing would come of it in a court, though. Something is off about the whole thing, though, I agree. Just can't really tell what. No parents are going to let their child continue to be harrassed by some creepy guy, at least not in 2013. The walking homophobe sure didn't react like one would think a person might "normally" react, at least at first. Why didn't he yell at the guy to stop filming him or start running or lunge at him or something? I mean, he eventually did that but for awhile he just kept walking and ignoring the filming like he was some celebrity or something. VERY odd.

I can't believe how dense some people are on this thread. The homophobe clearly admits that he called the videographer a "faggot" then states repeatedly, trying to justify his behaviour that "it happens every day," over and over meaning he does it to other people every day.
Also when do bullies and harassers say thank you?
For all the progress, the U.S. is still incredibly homophobic, in this case, in the most institutional way, demonstrated in the awkward "what's really happening here" reaction to the video which boils down to, "is this really an offence?" and the protection of the perpetrator. Though YouTube might claim legal protection rather than moral arbitration, I seriously doubt they have release forms for every person you see on YouTube.
