Help change to OK hate laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity

Last night my very best friend was assaulted, kicked, scratched and stabbed in her head for being a lesbian. That's all. Just for being a lesbian. When I woke up this morning after spending many hours in the hospital last night I discovered that crimes against sexual orientation and gender identity are not listed as a hate crime here in Oklahoma. This is not only disturbing but it is appalling. I believe that if more people actually knew that what that monster did to my best friend was not considered a hate crime then action will be taken. Please reconsider this law to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

      Regardless of who you are or what you do no one of GODS children should be hurt for any reason at all. Learn to LOVE each other & stop LOOKING for room in your heart for HATE........

      i believe no one should have to go threw anything like that.. we should all treat each other equally. if a woman or man wants to be gay thats what they want. we should have no room to give our opinion or even cause pain upon someone that chooses that life. we have to do something to stop this hate crime.
