Gay Couple Attacked For Sharing Their Marriage

Club Kensington
Even in relatively gay-friendly California, gay couples are still at risk for violent attacks based on their orientation. Rather than being accosted by strangers on the street, San Diego couple Zack and Shawn struck up a friendship with an older straight couple at Club Kensington, who congratulated the men on their marriage. Then, after inviting the couple over for dinner, things got violent:

But after 20 minutes at Shawn and Zach's home, Zach said the evening took a violent turn while he was talking to the woman's husband about sports. 

"He looked at me and said, 'I hate faggots,'" Zach told 10News. "Next thing you know, he hit me upside the head." 

When asked by the police what happened, the man claimed Zach tried to molest him, but when pressed for specifics he conveniently was "unable to remember details." ABC 10 News reports that the man and wife were planning to divorce and suspect that he may have been lashing out at the happily married couple.

  1. I'd be interested to see if the attacker turns out to be Mexican. California is overrun with illegal immigrants from Mexico. They commit a lot of crime.

    Watch your backs my Cali brothers!

  3. Translation ; alcoholic gay couple invites alcoholic straight couple over for dinner, and George and Martha got critically crunk.

  7. Aren't there enough stories here to prove that inviting any people you really don't know to your home puts you at risk? As Lily Tomlin would say in her act as the bland housewife: "It just makes sense."

  11. It's pretty obvious that the post by "Little Kiwi" is really Rick/Jason/one of his 50 other alts posing as LK.

  12. Mexican isn't a race, it's a nationality.

  14. Very odd story, the more you think about it.

  15. Little Kiwi is a grandiose c&nt sometimes, so I wasn't sure if that was her or not. The racism seems a bit much, though.

  16. Sounds like something I saw Little Kiwi post before though, so I don't know.

  17. Inviting strangers over for dinner is fraught with risks, be it to your furniture, your cutlery, your carpet or your self.

  18. I stand by what I believe and I speak up when I feel like it. That's just who I am and I don't self-censor and I can't be pigeon-holed, K? .. . . There's a real Mexican crime problem in Cali and I just want to see if this is one more example of it.

  19. it's not that hard to pose as somebody on this site.

    Posted by: LITTLE KIWI | Jul 30, 2013 3:12:42 AM

  20. Kiwi, you are the one who started this. Promise now to respect other people and to never post under other peoples' online names and then maybe people will reciprocate.

  21. It's to the point when I see any posts by Kiwi, I simply scroll over them. I can't give much credence to posts by children.

  22. There's more to this story.

  23. There's a lot of unfortunate blaming the victim that goes on at this site, but in this case it's mostly justified.

    Posted by: ripper | Jul 30, 2013 9:16:12 AM

  24. Folks, the "blaming the victim" thing may apply in appropriate circumstances, but I doubt it in this situation. The neighborhood of San Diego in question is a very upscale neighborhood. While the bar isn't the nicest place there, one would not expect to have to be wary of inviting other neighbors to dinner for fear of being attacked. It's not shocking just because of what happened, but because of where it happened.

  25. @Little Kiwi: go f*ck yourself, you lousy, trolling, racist twit. You've mucked up this site long enough. You don't know sh*t about anything and the only thing you DO know about is how to be as annoying and vile possible.
