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.
