From page A6 | July 02, 2014 |

SAN FRANCISCO — Police say an attack on two women during Gay Pride festivities in San Francisco was a hate crime.

The women were walking to a transit station on Saturday evening when they were approached by five men in the South of Market neighborhood.

Officer Albie Esparza said Tuesday at least one of the men shouted slurs related to sexual orientation before they began kicking and punching the women.

One of the victims, 25, suffered head abrasions. The other, a 27-year-old, injured her wrist.

The women had attended Gay Pride events. Police have not identified the suspects or made any arrests.

    Not saying this act was ok, but you have to understand not everyone is accepting of this type of behavior. They are running around just about naked doing god knows what infront of straight people and we sometimes take offense to it .

    2real, wow that is one of the most st*pid comments here ever. How about if non-believers finding your faith "offensive" walked into your church and beat up your fellow parishioners? Guess that wouldn't go over so hot. You really need to grow up.

    Mr. Smith, it's like one of those parallel universe things.

    So I guess by your "logic" if a gay person were to take offense at you holding your wife's hand or kissing her in public, they'd be justified in kicking your @ss.

    Jason, it would absolutely be justified. I mean, have you seen his wife?

    So where is your complaint about the heterosexuals doing the exact same thing every year for the exotic erotic ball?

    First of all,,, I have always hated the term "hate crime",,, crime is crime,seems like a law that is up for interpretation and not set in stone. Secondly the fact they were females makes this a story. Violence against women is not tolerable. But a mostly nude and flamboyant deviant prancing in the streets is another story

    Apparently mostly nude and flamboyant deviants are just fine at the mostly heterosexual exotic erotic ball held every year.

    And this subconscious fascination with mostly nude and flamboyant deviants is more telling about the poster considering that how they envision the SF Pride parade does not match reality. It is even televised. Families are everywhere. It is a pride event not an orgy.

    Archie, aren't all laws open to interpretation? That's part of the court's job. Since over 15% of San Francisco is gay, I would hardly call the behavior deviant. Personally, I am not offended by prancing. I rather enjoy it!

    I take it most of you guys are gay judging by that outlash of comments aimed at me? First of all no one says anything about heterosexual couples at the ball dropping because its NORMAL HELLLLO... ANYBODY HOME?? Now u might be fine with your kids seeing two guys makin out but im NOT! Its ungodly gays cant reproduce and without straight people mankind would perish! God created adam and eve not adam and steve. Im just being honest. They had it coming. No remorse for what happened. STRAIGHT PRIDE OVER HERE!!! Besides didnt aids evolve around gays?

    2real, they just found the missing pages from your bible. They say your maker will be greeting you with a jar of Ben Gay and handful of sand.

    Being straight is normal for me. As is being female. If I was a gay male, being male would be normal for me, as would being gay. Now it would be foolish to think that being female was normal for someone who identifies his gender as male. Yet every so often someone does seem to believe that what is normal for him is what is normal for everyone. And I know why I speak out.
