Florida Police on the Hunt for Three Men Who Raped Woman Just for Being a Lesbian (VIDEO) -
The fight for gay rights is the civil rights issue that defines American civil rights history at the moment. For years, conservatives have railed against the LGBT community, claiming that rights for homosexuals harm the family, children, and heterosexual marriages. Even though there is no evidence to support their claims, those of the religious right have driven themselves into hate overload. On Sunday, that hatred led to a hate crime in Florida.
As a woman was walking home from the Revolution nightclub in Orlando, three men pulled alongside her in a silver vehicle and verbally taunted her. They then proceeded to rape her.
According to Raw Story, “the victim told police the men called her a “lesbian” and “dyke” before they pushed her to the ground, took off her underwear and raped her. She suffered scratches on her arms and a cut on her chin, according to police.
“They made statements indicating their desire to kind of punish her for her sexual orientation,” Sgt. Jim Young told WKMG 6.
One of the men allegedly told the victim, “I’ll show you how a real man feels.”
