I was just attacked
« on: September 10, 2006, 06:31:30 AM »
Just back from the hospital. With 7 stitches and 2 "staples." Still in shock, close to tears.

From the bar I went to the one late-night pizza place. Made eyes with a boy. We start talking. We laugh. We start walking home (my place). We smoke a cigarette. We sit on a bench. We're a little... cosy (i.e., we're making out, kissing). Four women approach us. "So, you were making fun of us." What?! No, we weren't, you must have someone else in mind.

"NO, bitch!." Kick with big heels. Arms. Stomping. Then, a bottle was broken over my head and I can feel the blood flowing. Brian is being kicked in the balls and is bleeding also. Then they run.

"Call 911" I manage to mumble. A crowd has gathered, there were lots of witneses, it was still "only" 2 a.m. on a Saturday night. Big commotion. Police arrives. Ambulance arrives. I look at Brian -- his face is a bloody mess. I look at myself in the cops' mirror -- mine is too.

At the hospital -- stitches, staples. Oh gawd! For the stitches, near my eye: about 17 "pricks" of lidocaine before the stitches could be done.

Leaving the hospital: my wallet's gone. Have to get the hospital to call the police to drive me home. And here I am, with a face and chest still caked with dried blood, wondering why bad things happen to good people. And hoping Brian is OK as well.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

That really sucks - so sorry it happened to you. Hope you heal quickly - especially the damage to your psyche, which can linger if you're not careful. Talk to a counselor at a crisis center or similar if you feel you're having a difficult time shaking off the emotional effects. Hope you're friend is ok too.

Hi Jay,

I'm also really sorry this happened.  I'm not trying to make light of the situation, but were these real women or maybe drag queens?  In any event, I always thought men were the more violent of the sexes.  I know it'll take some time for the emotional scars to heal, but they will, for the most part.  What you've experienced is one of my greatest fears.  Obviously, being gay doesn't add to our safety.  Man, I'm about ready to move to the campground where I always feel safe.  Take care and keep us updated on things.

So sorry, Jay, this happened to you and your friend!  Allow me to say one or two things about the subject of violence against gays and lesbians, please.  First, you really should do everything imaginable and make sure these women are found and punished.  Now, I am not sure how much  the American police can be trusted on the subject and, for this reason, I strongly advise you to hire a lawyer --- if possible.
Second, when and if they are found, you really should press charges against each and every one of them.  In case you decide to do that, you should also be prepared for retaliation/blackmail from them.  It is indeed a tough choice, but it is the one a heterosexual person would do.  Now, why gays and lesbians don't do the same beats me every single time!  I know that the fear of being harrassed and, especially, beaten again is overwhelming.  However, until we, gays and lesbians, don't follow these simple rules,  there will be always attacks against us.  Of course, this is easy said than done, but it is the right thing to do if, once and for all, you wanna live your life with dignity. 
Know that there are --- or there should be --- ways to protect yourself and your friend from the blackmailing as well.  You won't believe the things a good lawyer is able to do!
It is interesting noticing, and since we're discussing this sickening subject, that violence against gays and, get this one, especially against lesbians have increased considerably in France as a whole, but especially in Paris.  It is even something that the gay press is urgeing Parisian gays and lesbians to tell friends who visit the city to be aware of...
Just when you thought that it was safe (and generally accepted)  to hold hands and show your love and affection to your honey, in public, in one of the most liberal capitals of Europe,  the violence starts all over again!  But this time, and no one knows exactly why, the lesbians are in the front line.
So, Jay, I do hope you'll have a speed recovery and, hopefully, the police will do what it is paid for and these women will get the punishment they deserve.  You are not alone in this fight!  The first thing to do is to get in touch with a Human Right Association, AIDS Association and/or any organization you think might be able to help you out with this thorny matter.  The important thing here is "to take action!"
Peace to you.

Thanks guys, for all your good wishes. All of you know, I hope, that they mean a lot to me.

I'm fine. Reading old sci-fi novels, lounging on the couch, eating (what else?) ice cream. Last night already feels remote. I'm just baffled by the apparent motivelesness of the assault. Money? I had barely a few shekels. Homophobia? But they didn't call us fags or anything like that. Revenge for a (mis)perceived slight? Maybe. Just for the heck of it? That's the frightening one. The police do have their descriptions, there were many witnesses, and I do intend to press charges.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure Brian's OK, he was less hurt than I was; we hadn't gotten to the number-exchanging stage, so I hope to see him around.

Off to queer choir practice, for the first time, in a few hours. And now back to the adventures of Thorby ("Citizen of the Galaxy," Robert Heinlein) and cookie dough ice cream.

Hey Jay,

I'm pretty stunned right now.  Sorry such a thing happened to you.  It really is maddening.  Has to make you wonder WTF makes people tick.

My gut reaction is to wish those people a slow, painful and miserable existence.  Truth be told, though, they probably already have that and have to act in this manner to make themselves feel better about their sorry, trashy life.

Speedy recovery to you, and hopefully you can connect with "the boy" again.   :)

Just back from the hospital. With 7 stitches and 2 "staples." Still in shock, close to tears.

From the bar I went to the one late-night pizza place. Made eyes with a boy. We start talking. We laugh. We start walking home (my place). We smoke a cigarette. We sit on a bench. We're a little... cosy (i.e., we're making out, kissing). Four women approach us. "So, you were making fun of us." What?! No, we weren't, you must have someone else in mind.

"NO, bitch!." Kick with big heels. Arms. Stomping. Then, a bottle was broken over my head and I can feel the blood flowing. Brian is being kicked in the balls and is bleeding also. Then they run.

"Call 911" I manage to mumble. A crowd has gathered, there were lots of witneses, it was still "only" 2 a.m. on a Saturday night. Big commotion. Police arrives. Ambulance arrives. I look at Brian -- his face is a bloody mess. I look at myself in the cops' mirror -- mine is too.

At the hospital -- stitches, staples. Oh gawd! For the stitches, near my eye: about 17 "pricks" of lidocaine before the stitches could be done.

Leaving the hospital: my wallet's gone. Have to get the hospital to call the police to drive me home. And here I am, with a face and chest still caked with dried blood, wondering why bad things happen to good people. And hoping Brian is OK as well.

"Vissi d'arte, vissi d'amore."

Dear Jay,

My heart goes out to you!  I hope your body heals quickly, emotionally please take your time...

This goes to show that assholes know no gender boundaries.

always, makes me sad, very sad, when someone has to see that side of human behaviour, makes it so much harder to believe in the good bits.
sometimes, the shouting just drowns out the whispers i think.
heal quickly, keep smiling

Hello Jay,

This is some terrible news that disturbs me. Those four ******* should have minded their own business. WTF? Anycase, I am hoping that you get better soon and take care of yourself.



Have the BEST Day!

Fucking bitches!!!!

You wanna know the reason to be attacked? SIMPLY: You are a handsome guy, with a beatiful butt , firm pecs and a nice guy...

MEN, BELIEVE: THAT DRIVES ANY WOMAN CRAZY!!! (Specialy, because the last 3...You know, some crazy people simply destroys what they cannot have)....

Now, PLEASE: For the gay/queer pride that joins together every single fag around this planet, from ancient greek times... MAKE SURE YOU ARE EATING LOW FAT ICE CREAM....(Or you will regret later at the gym)  -Ok, somebad humor from ine...But I do not care-

Get well...Wait, too straight...Let me re-phrase: GET HOT SOON!! :P

Disgusting thing to have happen to anybody.  I pray that I will still be living in a time were this sort of social intolerance has long been forgotten.

Not much of an update. Police have nothing, doubt they will in the future.

What's odd though: meeting my friends and peers, yesterday and today, and listening to their comments of sympathy and horror, was more upsetting than the actual aftermath of the assault. Recited the "story" 20 times today; not looking forward to more of the same tomorrow (still have black eye and noticeable gash etc).

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

Makes me so mad everytime i think about what happened.

Hopefully your eye and your gash will heal where they arent noticeable soon.
