GOP Georgia representative thinks that bullying and hazing are good for you


A Georgia bill to prevent anti-gay discrimination in public accommodations has failed, according to the Georgia Voice , but the real story comes from a publication called “Creative Loafing”: Republican state representative Tom Weldon is quoted as saying, “bullying makes you stronger”.  
 
This seems to be a throwback to mentality where college hazing (or “tribunals” as they were called at William and Mary in 1961) was seen as making young men more resilient, and more able to conform to heterosexist expectations, no matter what.   (It might take hair off your legs.)
