Some hypothetical questions:
What kind of a kid would do this? How about a kid who grows up
- not realizing the difference between private and public?
- believing that only physical presence leads to agency i.e. that if you were not physically present, then you have no responsibility
- believing that technical wizardy is praiseworthy regardless of consequences?
- thinking that homosexuals are the "other" i.e. not quite people and fit to be made fun of?
How much of this mindset is intrinsic to being 18-years old and immature? How much to being of his generation, a generation that grew up with social media? How much to being Indian American, one of the most homophobic groups in America?
