  1. Kinda cosmic, don’t you think? A LBGT transgender female male beholden to National Rifle Association, KKK, Neo-Nazis, Nazis, Fascists. Skinheads, militia groups, Republican Party and Christian Right for the Florida Stand Your Ground Law defense.

    • How the heck do you know all of that, or think you do? Are you just trying to be funny? Seeing as Sloan likes women (who do not necessarily like him back) I don’t know how he is plugged into gay chatter.

      Obviously he has a cock and is male. Even if he dressed in drag would not make him transgender. He is obviously a nut cash and will probably plead insanity.

      Murders and shootings have been a pretty rare thing historically in Key West and the Keys, but seem to have been picking up lately. We had two big gay murders fairly recently of local gay guys resulting in convictions.

      He said the victim was engaging in “cannibalism”. I would guess that is because the guy sucked off the killer and swallowed. But then every Catholic engages in cannibalism as the Eucharist is transformed by magic into the actual blood and flesh of Christ.

      Obviously the killer wasn’t really up on his religious doctrine.

      • Come on, Key West Dan and JiminKey West. I don’t know the younger transgender man, nor the older gay man.

        It is a fact that the young transgender man is beholden to the named right-wingers for the Florida Stand Your Ground Law defense.

        I wonder how the named right wingers might feel about a transgender female male using their stand your ground law to defend killing his gay partner, who drew the gun to kill him, it would appear, even there had been no allegation of cannibalism>

        You guys need to loosen up a heap. Awful as the facts of this bizarre case are, the irony cutting all ways is cosmic.

    • At this point we do not know if he /she has a cock or not Sloan does seem to think he knows all about the young guy. We really don’t know what all he / she is. What many do not know is male strippers often are not interested in the same sex. Male strippers for men often are not even bi. Women strippers often are bi.

      In this case being he / she might be in to anything. Take a serious look at him and he could easily pass as a girl. Look at the ones outside of 801 bar. And many pass. Do keep in mind the best are outside to sucker you to go in.

      Nothing wrong in dressing if you have the body and desire. Look at how many men dress at Fantasy Fest.

  2. Being the man died tuesday the charge is now second degree murder.

    Will depend on how good his/ her lawyer is as to how it ends
    seems she was a stripper

  3. Sloan , you even accused hi.m of being KKK
    All I see in this is a domestic dispute, we need to look past the gay part.

    Do see a what likely was a troubled teen boy that needed help when he wanted to become a girl..Now no matter how it ends he must live with this the rest of his life.
    Will be huge cost to tax payers as will need a private cell.

    The trick now is to prove who pulled the gun. If he told the truth then he had every right to kill the man by any method. Running would be smart but call 911 or flag a cop down.

    Note we only seen the boys picture not the old mans. A large 60’s man just might been able to beat the boy up. So did he have the right to use the wood ?
