I must admit I have never been bashed, but probably because I'm not effeminate. However, it seems like the more the bashings are publicize, the more they happen. With the kids ending school soon and warmer weather, it could be a long, very hot summer in the city.
The 6th one this month.
I thought NYC is supposed to be the best place on earth for gays and is supposed to be so tolerant?!
They don't just bash e-f-f-e-m-i-n-a-t-e-s, OP. They bash anyone identifiably gay (in their minds). It could be two guys walking too close together, or an overheard conversation, or someone they saw coming out of a gay bar, or a million other identifiers. Don't forget many homophobes are gay themselves, so they know what to look for.
I find it quite stupid to think "only femmy guys get bashed".
@2, I didn't mean to imply that only effeminate dudes get bashed, I was speaking from my personal experience and what I've been told. No offense.
However, for someone to go in edit my post and call me a bigoted tool is repulsive. Really? That was necessary? And now we see why the general public does not care about gays getting bashed.
Please ban the OP/r3 for idiocy as well as for homophobia.
OP, you are a moron and a troll. Thread closed.
R2 How old are you?
No, these anti-gay attackers/killers are straight. It's almost always a group of straight guys sometimes including women attacking a smaller number of gay people. These heterosexuals are looking to attack gay people, it's a bonding experience, a way to have some "fun." Mark Carson's killer laughed when he confessed to killing him. That is typical. Another characteristic of anti-gay crimes is usually the attackers are younger than the victim.
Would somebody PLEASE shit in my mouth??!!!
Wow. Talking about being intolerant, sad.
R4, you are clueless when it comee to homophobia.
OP, posters are not allowed to write that word or e.lder.g.ay. Those two words will automatically be covered up with a short message.
The black gay guy who was shot and killed in Greenwich Village in NYC several days ago was wearing cut-off short shorts and boots (and maybe a tank top, not sure)
But the very short cut-off shorts with boots is an easily recognizable gay look. The article I read said he and his walking mates were all wearing that outfit walking down a street in the Village.
I wouldn't wear that outfit (adding tank top) in the Village in the near future.
Thanks, R9. I'm pretty new to the site, so was not aware of that rule.
How is one to know that those two terms are not allowed, R9?
Has the rule been announced somewhere?
R12 No, it wasn't announced. People found out about it by looking at their posts and seeing a brief message instead of those words.
