Loc: in my own world in pittsburgh,...
i was reading some statistix the other day reporting this year hate crimes in general were down 1% last year, but anti gay hate crimes increased by 6%.

i am wondering if any other survivors have felt the pressure of living in the climate of fear that you have been one of them or may be one of the statistix in next year's report.

i guess in light of the fact that more and more people are living 'out loud' it makes sense that more of us would be targeted.

when i was a lot younger back in the 70's, i was often chased, verbally threatened, and even spit on. it was not unsual. i came to expect to have to live in the fear of constant threat of attack. that alone was one of the things that made me scared straight.

have you ever been the victim of a hate crime that resulted in being sexually victimized?

what impact has that had on your feelings about your sexuality and yourself as a person?

I myself have gotten in trouble for saying things in this forum, but people mistaken about my orientation have made me a victim of anti-gay hate crimes.

I can't say whether the crime was part of the sexual abuse or not. Usually I just blot out my memory.
