Hate Crimes- Open Lesbian Gang Raped in California

“Anytime there is an anti-LGBT initiative, we tend to see spikes both in the numbers and the severity of attacks,” he said. “People feel this extra entitlement to act out their prejudice.”

A woman who’s only “crime” is being lesbian was brutally gang raped in San Francisco, California. She was raped off and on for forty-five minutes on 13 December. The attack began when four men jumped her after she got out of her car, which bore a rainbow sticker, clubbed her with a blunt object, disrobed her, and began to rape her. When a passerby almost stumbled upon them raping her in the street, they bundled her into her car and took her to an abandoned building where the sexual attack continued until the men finally left her naked, and badly injured. Through out the entire attack, the men barraged her with homophobic epithets.

She sought help from a near by resident and was taken to the hospital. The Richmond Police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of these men. All that is known about these men is that the attack was random, and that one went by the nickname “Blue” and another by the nickname “Pato”.

Avy Skolnik, a coordinator with the New York-based National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, who is quoted above, notes that there has been a sixteen percent rise in anti-gay violence last year, and that was a sixteen percent rise over the year before.

Men like Rick Warren spew hate speech from their pulpits and forget the human costs of those that they hurt. They care little that what they say, such as comparing gays and lesbians to child molesters, embolden and empower those who seek to injure those that they feel entitled to, such as the very same gays and lesbians that they have vilified. If we are to consider Adolph Hitler guilty for the crimes that others committed, that he inspired with his words and gave them orders, then Rick Warren and others who vilify gays, lesbians and transsexuals are as guilty of the crimes that those who do the actual harm do as the actual perpetrators are.

    That is because this state hates lesbians or any women who is not a sexually submissive masochist. Women here are totally passive and submissive, there are no longer any lesbians in California. California is the worst place in the world to be a lesbian. 

    I hate men in California, I hate women in California

      I don’t think more hate is the answer here.

    That is because San Francisco Bay is gay men territory. Although the area is safe haven and everybody loves gay men, the area shuns gay women. Gay women do not exist in California, they are leaving the state. Nobody hates lesbians more than the liberals of California, because they all love gay men.

    I’m not even going to be nice to you because I don’t care what you think.
    How do you and other religious people go off saying that god is the way???
    You have no right speaking for him! If he had a problem with me being a raging lesbian then he probally would have struck be by lighting and sent me to hell. Guess what??? I’m still living happily at that with a wonderful Girlfriend. You act like it is such a terrible thing to be happy and be yourself. FUCK YOU!
    You are so ridiculous. I am fucking flabbergasted that people are as rude and selfish as you are. God loves me and all the other people out there equally the same.

    This is exactly why we all need to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. Everytime. We need to elect people who will enact and enforce laws. Vote as if your life and the life of your loved ones depended on it, because it does.
