For four months, Radford University student Jordan Addison drove a car whose windows had been bashed in and that had a homophobic slur keyed into one of the doors. Addison tells the New York Daily News that his car had been vandalized on four separate occasions because he is gay.

Lacking the funds to fix his 1999 Volkswagon — at least $2,500 just for the door, says CBS News — the Virginia student had spray-painted over the slur on the door and fitted mismatched pairs of tires to the axles.
