Sexual orientation hate crimes are just as abhorrent as any other hate crime. The citizens of N.C. (I am one) demand equal protection under the law. Please make SOMETHING EQUAL in this state!

My sibling was brutally beaten. Remarks such as gay and fag were repeatedly being yelled at him while being beaten. After filing a police report 4 days ago we still have not yet spoken to the officer assigned to the case. It's very disturbing to know that justice may not be served.

Hate is a terrible thing. Judging people for their lifestyle choices or for who they are is wrong. Allowing people who commit crimes of this nature is inconceivable. If you had a child and they decided to wear their hair a certain way and someone hated that and injured your child how would that make you feel, how would your child feel. When will the hate stop? I was taught to love my neighbor as myself, which includes flaws and all. Stop the Hate and the Judgment!!!!!!!!

It is worldwide the fact that lesbian women, girls and couples are brutally persecuted. In many countries they are imprisoned, tortured, raped, mutilated and murdered. Why are lesbian couples so threatening for men? Quite simply, they live happily and freely and fully sexually satisfied without men in partnerships. They have kids and live happy with them. The men have realized that if they do nothing, sometimes they are to women are dispensable, at leastmany men believe that. And so many women and girls are harassed because of their sexual orientation, are often come in psychiatry. Here I must note, however, men who believe, women find their happiness in domestic and sexual violence, in the deprivation of their sexual self-determination, in a brutal pornography and prostitution, in slavery and humiliation, they think simply wrong. More and more women are choosing to live alone or live with women. The trend is worldwide and will be answered by men and also many Islamic governments with brutal violence. Women and girls have the right to live freely and as they want and when men make women mostly just unhappy, is the logical consequence for women to live without them. This is not the women's fault.
Sexuality of women is also quite different as understood by men, but until this day most men have not grasped it and I fear that most will never understand it, and then they just have to accept that women get along very well without them rightly, in every respect. Violence is no solution here and so violence against women and girls because of their sexual orientation should be legally punished very hard .
