Gay Couple Attacked in Sept. Come Forward After SUV Set Ablaze

A gay Columbus, Ohio couple whose SUV was set on fire yesterday morning were reportedly urged to come forward by police about an attack on them in September, WBNS reported. It’s unclear from the station’s report how the fire and the attack might be related:

Suv“John and Larry Charlton were hospitalized following the beating on Harris Avenue in September, 10TV’s Glenn McEntyre reported. The men, who have been together more than seven years, said the attack began when a group of men yelled a gay slur at them. ‘Next thing I know, one of them’s on (John’s) back, whooping on him,’ Larry said. ‘I pulled that guy off. He turned around and smashed me a couple times in the head and knocked me down. Then three more guys were on top of John.’ Police urged the men to come forward with their story after their SUV was set on fire Tuesday morning. ‘Why in the world did these people jump us? How can they be that hateful to two people just walking down the street?’ Larry said. Police said one of the attackers is a white man in his late 30s or early 40s with a long gray ponytail. The second is a white man in his early 20s with short brown hair.”

Those with any information about the attack is urged to call Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 645-TIPS.

    Ever notice these “manly-men” always attack in groups? It’s getting to the point a gay couple can’t even walk down the street peacefully without a group of mentally deficient thugs beating them or worse. I hate to sound like an alarmist but we need to start looking at this as though we’ve had war declared on us, because we have.

    Instead of heading to the gym to pump iron all the time we should look into taking a self-defense class once or twice a week. Not only would we look good but we could kick ass to defend ourselves and those we love as well.

    Hate crimes against lgbt’ers are usually perped by packs of young men in their early twenties and late teens. There are, of course, notable exceptions. Get a concealed weapons permit and start carrying a loaded gun. Make the fight fair.

    My point exactly,If all gay and even lesbian people were permitted to carry guns no ill-minded str8 guy would even dream of attacking us.As I said before and Ill say it again,Im already getting physically violent with these str8 punks when are yall gonna start.

    As my motto goes

    You are what you eat.Str8 guys eat pussy,therefore they act like a bunch of pussies and attack gay men in groups because they want to believe that gay men are weak and they wanna have that sense of superiority and attack us (which is also why they rape women) it gives them a sense of control because they have no control over their own lives.Considering that we are what we eat maybe all gay men should start biding by that and start acting like Dicks and Assholes and treat str8 men THE EXACT same way they treat us.LIKE SHIT.Wake the fuck up people,these problems arent gonna erase themselves.
