Gay Family Victims of Hate Crime

Still from Video at WINK-TV

In yet another stunning and heartbreaking example of man’s inhumanity to man, a gay couple in Cape Coral, Florida, who tried to give their 16-year old daughter a car for her birthday, awoke the evening after the family birthday party to discover that some local homophobic thugs had a nasty surprise for them.

The lesbian couple, who who did not wish to be identified out of fear that they might incur retaliation of a worse nature, were in disbelief at what the cowards had done to their cars and front door. The women’s 16-year daughter’s birthday car was not exempt from the damage of vandalism.

The hate-filled messages were spray-painted across the cars. The vandals wrote “dykes go to hell, go home, gays don’t belong here” and “lesbians equal hell”.

“It’s more than devastating. I don’t think there are words that could explain what it would make you feel like when somebody does something this nature to you and your family,” said one of the victims.

The attack happened earlier this week, and the perpetrators are still at large.

The couple, who have two children, said the vandals also damaged several lights on their front yard and cut through the pool’s lanai.

When you hear and see one of the mother’s talking about the cowardly act, the tremble in her voice makes one mad as hell…well, it’s just too much.

    how did you come to the conclusion that they were “homophobic”? do you even know what that means? are you a psychoanalyst? do you know that sigmund freud said that homosexuality is a mental disorder? maybe you should just stick to the facts. hate or disgust do not equal fear or phobia.
