A freshman at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg said he was given a letter of discipline after reporting he was the victim of anti-gay harassment. 18-year-old Alex Worthley of Sedalia said his dormitory roommate threatened him with a knife because the other student didn’t like having a gay roommate. “He was like, ‘I do have a knife and I’ll use it if I have to,’” said Worthley.
