Jordan Steff, a junior at LaPorte High School in Indiana says that he’s been enduring homophobic bullying since he came out in seventh grade, from hateful slurs to food thrown at him in the cafeteria, reports The Insider.
When, according to Steffy, a classmate posted a homophobic message on Snapchat using a photo of him, it was the last straw.
“He made an anti-gay post with a picture of me on it saying how he hated gays and a bunch of throwing up emojis all over it,” Steffy told Insider. “I walked up to him and said ‘Why did you post this?’ He said ‘It was just a post.’ And I said ‘Well, it’s not just a post. It’s a post about me, saying how you dislike who I am, and I don’t appreciate that.’ He went on to say ‘Okay, but what are you going to do about it?’ I said ‘I’m not going to deal with this, this is the last time I’m called anything.’ And then he said ‘What are you going to do about it, faggot?’ And that’s when I was like ‘No, I’m not doing this.'”
