Lesbian Couple Finds 'Kill the Gay' Scrawled on Garage, Noose on Doorstep: VIDEO

Killthegay

A Parker, Colorado lesbian couple fears for their safety after finding "Kill the gay" scrawled on their garage and a noose on their doorstep, KWGN reports:

ParkerThe couple admits they’ve had an ongoing feud with their homeowners association at their Parker condo complex. They say their H.O.A regularly complains that the couple does not pick-up after their dogs. One neighbor said the two regularly have noise complaints.

The couple has notified Parker police who are investigating. Investigators take the reports of harassment seriously and they have increased patrols in the neighborhood.

Said Aimee Whitchurch: “You get words like ‘homos’ or ‘you’re going to burn in hell’ and things of that nature, but ‘kill the gay?’ That’s a threat against our lives so it was overwhelming...You don’t know who is targeting you. At first I thought it was kids until the noose."

The couple says they will not be scared into moving.

Aimee and Christel put up signs on the garage door that read “We will not submit to hate” and “Don’t cover it, solve it.”

  1. Hold fast. Let everyone see the kind of monsters are out there, especially those who believe that LGBTs are "over protected" and that anti-gay bigots are the real victims.

  3. Pathologicals and Prejudice

    In The Anatomy of Prejudices Elizabeth Young-Bruehl looks at such "primary prejudices" as sexism, racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia. She argues that they fall into one or another combination of categories: obsessional, hysterical, or narcissistic.

    Obsessional (Malcontent) prejudice, by her definition, sees its objects as omnipresent conspirators or enemies set on one's destruction, who therefore must be eliminated.

    Hysterical (Histrionic) prejudice interprets the hated individuals as "other, as inferior, and as sexually threatening". Racism is the best example of hysterical prejudice.

    Narcissistic prejudice "cannot tolerate the idea that there exist people who are not like them". She argues that homophobia alone fits all these categories, and this might help account for its persistence and prevalence.

  4. I'm sure the HOA will fine them for not covering it up as well.

    I think I'd have to throw BBQs every weekend and invite as many gays as possible.

    Invite the nice neighbors to join in & remind everyone it's usually the guys with the tiniest penises that engage is this kind of cowardly, misguided, bullshiz.

    Pity them. ;)

  6. Another example of why we need to stop calling harassment, attacks, violence, crimes against LGBT people "bullying." No one is calling THIS bullying...why when it's in our schools is it?

  7. Totally agree.

    Stop calling these crimes "bullying".

    These crimes are vandalism, physical assaults, destruction of property, intimindation.

    When you call someone a name, that's bullying.

    When you beat the living crap out of them it's a crime. It's assault. It's battery.

    By terming some of these crimes "bullying" you trivialize the nature of the offense.

  8. If they don't pick up after their dogs they're sleezes (and sort of look like it) with neighbors that are sick of them, plus someone who's so sick of them that they've put up the most offensive grafitti they can think of. This a matter of be smart about, not stubborn. If they can't cooperate they should clearly get out.

  9. @uffda: They sort of look like "sleezes"? First of all, you seem to know enough about this couple from a minute-long video to conclude that they are "sleezes", and second, it's spelled "sleazes".

    We have no way of knowing whether the accusations of the couple not picking up their dog's poop are true or not, and if the neighbors didn't actually see which dog left the poop, it's easy for them to just blame dog owners they happen to dislike personally.

  10. They should make one of those NOM Marriage Anti Defamation videos. But I suppose there would be no point since they weren't even provoking anyone politically before this happened.

  11. Local news Interviewed the women and they stated they pick up after their Great Dane and Mastiff all the time and they state the HOA sent someone over to "cover up" the writing by just painting white over it, so they had a volunteer come over and spend the time to take it off, properly.

    My partner and I live a few miles from this and we find that we get dirty looks here where we live, but mostly from International Men who are used to a certain female culture. Personally, we haven't had any issues and our complex owner's are very nice towards us. That is why this type of thing makes the news each time, most people in Denver metro are "live and let live"

  12. I hope this isn't another one of those "faked hate crimes" that you see from time to time.
