I'M NOT DEFENDING ASSAULT OR GAY BASHING:

July 4th

Alcohol and other intoxicating substances are being used and abused at higher levels than usual

Vast influx of transient visitors to the downtown core (including Kenmore Sq area)

Anyone familiar with this kind of environment knows tension rises with crowded conditions, adding in the 'party' type atmosphere.

Are there any independent verified accounts of the assaults? Security camera? Clear audio of the words exchanged?

This guy may of course really be just a complete asshole, but consider the above. BTW I'm bisexual and open about it. Yes, people assaulted for just being homosexual or stereotypically appearing to be homosexual does occur. I also know gay, lesbian, bi, transgendered are just as capable of being disorderly, antisocial, starting argument or fight, and playing the innocent victim, as anyone else.

And July 4th was a hot day and night. Why isn't he dressed more appropriately? He's not even wearing a ss shirt.

What does any of that have to do with an alleged assault and alleged gay bashing? Are you suggesting it was self-defense? If not, what exactly ARE you trying to say?

It's possible for two people or groups of people to get into a fight, and for everyone involved to be at fault.

Is that what all those words were alluding to? I didn't get that at all from the several paragraphs above.

"I am not defending assault or gay bashing"

Well... I think you know the rest.

In all caps too.

Not that this guy isn't a scumbag, but why do people keep perpetrating the "all homophobes and gay bashers are closet cases" myth? It's a fallacy. This inaccurate knee jerk reaction does no good in combating homophobia or educating the public.

Because "The lady doth protest too much, methinks" is as valid an observation about the human psyche today as it was in 1602.

The list of anti-gay pastors and politicians caught sucking cock is endless. But don't take my word for it. Being a homophobe is totally gay (as proven by science).

There is a difference between " anti-gay pastors and politicians caught sucking cock" and homophobes. Homophobes actually hate LGBT people for whatever reasons that don't necessarily have to do with them being gay themselves, which they are likely not. The "anti-gay pastors and politicians caught sucking cock" are just gay people pretending not to be gay. This may sound like semantics, but there IS a difference. They actually like being gay or they would recoil from said activities.

It's unfortunate that your need for simplistic answers keeps you from understanding simple and straightforward differences. You are simply wrong.

Why else would folks like Buzzy have such a strong reaction to something that doesn't affect them? Gay bashing goes well beyond

I've lost count of the number of times people have attacked me, using their cars as a weapon, for riding a bike, and used anti-gay slurs against me. Maybe next time I'll get it on video and call the cops.

What exactly would they be right about? And why would you think that "proving them wrong" is the goal here? This isn't play group.

Saw a guy on bike mocking a woman on a bike when he almost ran into her as he blew through a red light. After he cycled passed me and another guy with a German Shepherd waiting to cross the intersection (on foot), the dog growled and lunged at him. Thought it was pretty funny -- karma's a bitch. I just wish the woman on the bike could have seen it.

Great picture, does the T have a way to identify passengers if he used a company or monthly pass?
