    “They were hitting me, punching me, doing all types of things, I tried to stand up and laugh it off” UGH, SWING A DANG PUNCH BROOO. My god. would it kill you to learn how to defend yourself.

    Great interview guys— We, too, hold hands all over NYC- Public displays of affection ARE important. Keep it up!
    Kev C. clearly you have no education- maybe 2nd grade drop out? Good thing the majority of PhD’s are dem’s!

  3. RJP says

    Perhaps if Kev C would stand up a little more and just run cowardly from shadow to shadow, he wouldn’t need so much Chapstick to sooth his dragging knuckles.

    Nicely done video. To the poster above me that says “don’t flaunt”. Really? You are of the same neanderthal state of mind that rationalizes rape with an outfit. Do the world a favor, grow up and become a human being and stop parroting the asinine nonsense.

    New York City is a very liberal and very homophobic city.

    Liberalism and homophobia tend to go hand in hand. That’s because liberalism’s tolerance of us is based on segregation. The de-segregated male homosexual act or suggestion thereof (such as 2 guys holding hands in public) represents a threat to segregation that is so beloved of liberals.

  6. Brian says

    Rick, stop posting as me. Everyone knows the only people who encourage segregation these days are anti-gay republicans like yourself. I noticed you’re also posting under the name Kev C in addition to your usual name. Could you stick to your own names and leave me alone? Save it for Kiwi.

    My partner and I (we’re both 71 years old) live in the middle of Kansas. We hold hands and kiss each other goodbye or hello when we are in public. We don’t “Make Out”, but I don’t even see many straight senior citizens making out in public. Sure we get called names, but it’s not going to stop us. So Nick and Kevin, and everyone else, if you have someone you care about, show them with displays of affection, even when you are in public. Don’t hide from the haters.

    “Victim blaming is useless”

    If cowards are “victims”, they are only victims of their own cowsrdliness.

    Any gay man who refuses to defend himself when attacked deserves to get the living crap beat out of him.

    The cowardliness that causes such behavior is learned……just as other aspects of effeminate behavior are learned…..and need to be unlearned.

    Until they are, gay men will continue to be treated with disrespect and attacked physically.

  9. Rick says

    Whoops, sorry Kev C. I thought you were MateoM. I’ll stop posting under your name. My bad. I just get so sick of the flamboyant effeminate gays who insist on flaunting themselves on this site, like MateoM.

  10. Brian says

    Well, if you’re expecting a free ride from liberals, think again. While it’s true that liberalism has given us acceptance at the level of law, this hasn’t translated to the level of society. Why so? Because women fear us.

    Unless it is wrapped up and hidden away, the male homosexual concept is a threat to her. It threatens her ability to control male behavior.

  11. MateoM says

    Ha! I knew Brian was just Rick. Rick has posted that same exact rant against women on this site literally dozens of times, and is the only person who has ever harped on the “homophobia of liberal women” (something he made up because he hates liberalism, gays and women). Rick, you’re so OBVIOUS.

  12. Hunter says

    What a couple of faggots. Being super gay and proud is disgusting. That’s why I choose to remain single and closeted. Wouldn’t want to be mistaken for a happy and self-confident fag. I’d much rather come off as a closeted creep.

  13. Audi-owner says

    @ MateoM

    He’s posted the same hateful rants about women,gays,blacks,and liberals numberous times. He’s the GOP**sy/Turd Cabin poster child on this blog. Along with 6 or 7 others here.

  14. SamIam says

    It’s a shame. SOMEONE knows who these perps are. It’s such clear footage. But they come from a “Don’t snitch!” area where people are encouraged to never tell anything to the police. So pathetic and sad.

    Dear Andy,

    If this comment thread is an example of anything, it’s that you must — in very quick order — reform the comment system to require log-ins.

    This level of trolling ruins Towelroad — and I can’t imagine the pain these two guys from the story would feel if they were to come here and read the comments. I hope they know it’s from bigoted trolls.

    But for the sake of people like the two from this story, please… please… please… reform the comments. I’ll even donate a little toward it, if that’s what it took! (Seriously, if funding is an issue, kickstarter it or something.)

  16. Kev C says

    This is the real Kev C and I firmly believe if gay men had the right to keep and bear arms in NYC, a lot of this gay bashing would have ended or never begun, as bashers realize that they could die if they gay bashed. Expecting government will solve the problem of gay bullying and bashing is unrealistic and ineffective. But we can expect that gays will be bashed in the future. The question is: what are you going to do to be prepared for that moment when it happens again?

    it’s unfortunate that they had to experience that and they shouldn’t have to experience that. however, folks gotta understand that homophobia is rampant in society. they can hold their hands in public BUT they have to be aware that there’s certain people within the public that are going to mess with them or take issue with what they’re doing. i am NOT blaming them for what happened to them but you have to be aware. nyc might have a large gay population and gay neighborhoods BUT it doesn’t mean that there aren’t homophobic people inside the city though.

    @ Ryan:

    I agree. It was almost impossible trying to read this discussion/thread. What is the f.cking point of posting under a “Towleroad regular’s” name–posting a point of view opposite to what that “regular” believes? What’s the point?

    And don’t blame Little Kiwi. What Kiwi does is parody. He makes a parody of the views of the lunatics on this blog. Parody is obvious–it is deliberately unbelievable. Parody is diffferent than being an imposter who attempts to discredit other commentators by making statements that are opposite to their views.

    Shyt, some of y’all need to look up the definition of parody as a literary device, and then go back and take a college course in freshman composition.
