BILLINGS, Montana -- A three-letter word spray-painted onto Cain Stacy’s trailer door in the Heights greets the bisexual teen whenever he comes home.
It’s his own scarlet letter.
The word first showed up eight days ago, when the 18-year-old, who goes by Caz, said he came home to find it scrawled in rust-colored paint on his front door.
It was not the word so much that bothered him. Stacy said people have been launching it at him for as long as he can remember. He is used to it.
“I’ve been called a fag my whole life,” he says.
