Mallory Owens, Alabama Lesbian, Allegedly Attacked By Girlfriend's Brother During Thanksgiving Dinner (GRAPHIC)
An Alabama woman is recovering after allegedly being attacked by her girlfriend's brother over Thanksgiving weekend.
Though details of the case are continuing to emerge, NBC affiliate Local 15 reports that 23-year-old Mallory Owens is being treated for injuries following a Nov. 22 assault by Travis Hawkins Jr. Owens, who was reportedly attending Thanksgiving dinner at the family home of girlfriend Ally Hawkins (Travis' sister) at the time of the attack, suffered multiple skull fractures and crushed bones, and had metal plates put under her eyes because of her injuries, according to reports.
Hawkins, Local 15's report notes, has been charged with second degree assault, though it remains unclear what may have prompted the attack.
Al.com cites Owens' sister says it wasn't the first time Hawkins had attacked Owens, noting: "He never liked Mallory and Ally to begin with. Mallory would never do anything to hurt anyone."
Avery Godwin added, "He should've been charged with attempted murder."
A photo reportedly showing Owens in the hospital has since been posted on Facebook. "It is reported that the accused attackers family stood by, did not intervene, and have threatened the [victim's] family," the user wrote.

Someone put a link to his Facebook. If that's him, looking at his likes he seems like a typical male macho-wannabe douche.

If this does turn out to be a gay bashing, and the account is accurate, why would those women even show up in the first place?
I am NOT saying she deserved that in any way, but if the family just stood by, obviously they are homophobic and low rent.
I always shake my head at much lesser examples of homophobic disrespect in the Home for the Holiday threads.
I disconnected from my family years ago and never regretted it.

He posted a picture on Facebook of a tattoo that reads "Forever Condemned." The following exchange took place with his mother:
[quote] Mom: Is that how you feel about yourself? We may not go to church like we should, but I always thought we instilled Christian values in you. Do you really feel that your condemned?
Guy: this isnt the conversation to be having over a public forum mom. christianity has nothing to do with the symbolism of this tattoo i dont feel religiously condemned or spiritually etc. but by my father i will always feel condemned so thats the meaning of my tattoo, but honestly i dont think this is the conversation to be having over facebook
Mom: Your father has never condemned you nor does he have the power. You feel condemned on your own. Bud, you have made a mess of your life on your own and we have done everything to help you. Your dad more then me.
Guy: Look i know this isnt mom speaking and if it is you typing the words arent your own and i will always feel condemned by my father if you want to have this conversation over facebook would you like me to go down the list of reasons why i feel condemned by him: the final reason was the voicemails that i have saved by him to me, etc. etc. i have plenty of other more explicit reasons. im not gunna argue about this anymore im grown mother/father im on my feet now i have a good job good money my life is no longer a mess so... all in all f$#@ my father!
Mom: Love the language you would use with your mother. So your calling me ignorant and I don't know how to put words together. Thanks son!! Go a head and use all the stories you have made up or changed about your dad to gain all the sympathy you can get. We have never wanted anything but you to be happy and successful. Whether you believe or not we both love you very much. Take care of yourself.
Mom: Please stop trying to continue to cause us pain. You've done enough already. [/quote]
He clearly comes from a fucked up background, that much is clear.

So, his sister didn't do anything to stop him? This is why I'd carry a gun if I lived in any red state.

Maybe they lured the couple to the house in order for this to happen. I would not doubt it for one minute.
I escaped Alabama, thank God. It is as backward today as it was 20 years ago. Fucking assholes.

R14,16 As hot as you think the attacker is, he's a homophobe he will beat you worse than this girl long before he fucks you. Defending this homophobic SOB on a gay board is pathetic.

R15/17 is a nasty ass piece of shit and should promptly throw himself off a bridge. Everyone F&F him.
On another note, the word "alledgly" in the headline pissed me the fuck off. If this attack didn't involve a lesbian no one would be doubting whether it took place or not. Why the hell is it that people here and elsewhere always seem to question homophobic violence against lesbians? The same thing happened when the lesbian was tied up in her home and when a lesbian teenage couple was attacked.

That should have been R14/17. And "allegedly".

R17, the brother is to blame for savagely and brutally beating this poor woman. Are you brain dead? The family is to blame because it is reported that they stood and WATCHED. Which leads me to believe they were in on it.
R17, you are damaged, severely.

r17, I agree you are a fucking asshole.

they use allegedly because the assault was a criminal act and and the perp has not yet been tried and convicted. he will keep being the suspect/defendant/alleged assailant till he takes a plea deal or is convicted at trial.

Those who stood by and watched this coward batter the woman is just as guilty. Justice would demand he be celled with relatives of lesbians. But that doesn't happen. I,for one, believe he'll eventually self-destruct!

someone beat up R17 so we can all laugh at his tattered ass. Maybe a little rape for some extra fun. He obviously deserves it.

How bout the Feds charge him with a hate crime since the state offers no clause for LGBT citizens?
He deserves the death penalty. What good could he possibly serve on this earth. Absolutely horrifying.

The victim is now saying the beating wasn't due to anti-gay violence, just a "bad, bad night."

r17 also wrote this on another thread:
"My parents raised me to be a proud Republican and that is what I will always be. I do not believe in liberal values. That is why I am voting for Mr. Romney. My relatives were victims of the Holocaust so we are very attuned to the despotism that liberals represent. I will always stand for Freedom and purity."

Says it all really. Just as self-hateful as R17.

There definitely seems to be more to this story. The victim's gf said that more will come out later and that "it's so humiliating."
And apparently this wasn't the first time the brother attacked the gf. He hit her in the head with a pipe wrench but they got past that. WTF is wrong with those people?
