So there have been a few homophobic incidents recently where I live and its despicable and disgusting how little is done about it.
I won't use details because I don't want to trigger anyone.
But this really pisses me off and I wanted to say something but I didn't know where I could do so.
A couple weeks ago there was a anti-gay incident and then a couple days later, the cops arrested people that were trying to stick up for the gay people involved.
This next incident hits closer to home.
A person I met recently, they were gay bashed really badly. Thing is, they won't/can't tell the cops because of how homophobic the cops in my area are. So this person has to take on the responsibility of helping themselves and protecting themselves because the police force here hasn't done shit for gay people recently.
I'm afraid it will just get worse.
And people say this area is getting more tolerant?! Wtf?.
It sucks. It makes me a combination of sad, angry, and fearful.
They didn't deserve it at all.
...I could use a little reminder that there are non-lgbt people out there that actually care about lgbt people's well being...
