Recent Rash of Hate Crimes: Abject Phonies

Recently there's been in the news stories about local gays getting beat up "because they're gay". I just wanted to point out, there is a trend in the gay community of perpetrating hate crimes against themselves to stoke public outrage, and for PR value. It's right here: http://gayharms.blogspot.com/2012/12/public-r...

When you are putting yourself in vulnerable positions late at night and you get attacked, you need to question your surroundings before you tack it on to anti-gay bias. Gay bars are notoriously located in the seediest parts of town(s). Gays, as a demographic, engage in more risk-taking behavior, being less mindful of their safety (like anonymous sexual encounters in isolated places). Gays drink and often move about alone in these seedy places, and then it's a no-brainer that they find themselves getting assauled. News flash: if you don't excercise common sense for your safety, you can't blame it on anti-gay bias. And how can you know what the exact motive is when you're assaulted, unless it's explicitly articulated by the assailant? You can't, all you can do is concoct a juicy victimhood narrative that the media's going to swoon all over, and - VIOLA!- you've got yourself another gay crisis. Please.
