A MAJOR, MAJOR problem...that is, WE'RE BEING THREATENED AND KILLED
IN OUR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS...in the very heart of our gay "meccas" that
are thought to be the safest: The Castro, West Hollywood, and Amsterdam.
And these latest hate crimes are largely from the new crop of crazies
coming down the pike.

Well, homophobia is homophobia...doesn't matter if you're gay.
Spewing "faggot" and brandishing meat cleavers in the Castro is not
only homophobic, it is homophobic in the WORST DEGREE. How DARE you
think that scum should have been spared! How DARE you think we gays
are supposed to take all this crap that a heterocentric society dumps

GOOD RIDDANCE TO THE IDIOT SCUM...and I think his immediate
family ought to be IMPRISONED for not protecting innocent gays
from his raving lunacy.

THE HATRED WAS COMING FROM HIM, YOU SCREWBALL! He should be
ISOLATED from the social, public spheres, to prevent such violence. But
since society fails to do this, it has come to where we either get bashed,
or bash back.
Now, what the fuck is wrong with you and his family and friends, to
let someone so DANGEROUS loose in our queer neighborhoods...when
we are already being so terribly attacked by our government, our
churches, our cities, our neighbors?
So I actually hope ALL his friends and relations who "miss" him, will
soon join him at his new location. Then, EVERYONE will be happy,
