" Franco told Entertainment Weekly this week about his affinity for gay roles, and what that means regarding the longstanding tradition of questioning his sexuality." Is he straight or is he gay?' Or," he lamented, " 'This is your third gay movie -- come out already!" "And all based on, gay or straight, based on the idea that your object of affection decides your sexuality" (James Franco's 'Maybe I'm just gay' -- and why we love it).

Bullying is an abusive treatment, the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when habitual and involving an imbalance of power. It may involve verbal harassment, physical assault or coercion and may be directed persistently towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability. The "imbalance of power" may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "targeted individual" (Wikipedia).
