Anybody who knows homofascist Leftism can answer why he lied.Ok - not "the only problem" (there are many with this scenario), but one big problem with it.
Why he chose to declare he had been attacked is something only he can answer, but what brought him to make this claim in the first place? There are many issues about this that are disconcerting.
Homosexuals have the Leftist-homofascist media and government at their beck and call for fun and profit, because they know they are more equal in the eyes of the law than non-homosexuals.
They know they also also face little, if any consequences for lying and fraud, just endless sympathy and hand-wringing. They can just cry "discrimination, bigotry, homophobia" if anyone tries to hold them to account for perpetrating their frauds.
