United States Trump presidency and homophobia


This video from the USA says about itself:

16 February 2016

Donald Trump admitted that he would appoint homophobic Supreme Court justices to overturn the landmark marriage equality ruling. Since Donald Trump wants to ban things he doesn’t like, we discuss things we want to ban that Donald Trump likes.

After Islamophobic and anti-Jewish hate crimes in Donald Trump‘s USA, now homophobia.

Drunk gay basher tells Key West couple: ‘You live in Trump country now,’ police say

By Gwen Filosa

Calling them gay slurs and taunting, “You live in Trump country now,” a drunken scooter rider attacked two Key West men who were on bicycles riding home on Duval Street early Thursday, police said.

Kevin Seymour, 38, and Kevin Paul Taylor, 49, said it was a drunken tourist who followed them as they rode south on Duval Street “calling us faggots and a slew of other anti-gay remarks,” according to a police report.

At one point, the scooter rider struck the rear tire of Seymour’s bike, knocking him to the ground.

Police were called to 1221 Duval St. about 1 a.m. Thursday for the report of aggravated battery.

“We were victims of a hate crime last night biking home from dinner,” Taylor posted on his Facebook page. “He kept stopping in front of us and swerving into us. Finally Kevin got ahead of him and the guy charges him with his scooter and runs into him and knocks him off his bike. Kevin is okay.”

“I think the cops will be able to track him down,” Taylor wrote.

Police described the scooter rider as a white man in his mid- to late 30s with “a southern accent” wearing gray shorts and a blue polo shirt. His moped was a black Eclipse.

A witness gave a statement to police backing the couple’s story and officers said there may be security video available from nearby businesses.

“I bet you faggots voted for that bitch Hillary,” the suspect said to the couple. “Well, you live in Trump country now.”

As the scooter followed the couple, Seymour told the man he would call 911. “If you do that, I’ll cut you up,” the man replied, according to reports.

George Weinberg, a psychotherapist who, in the mid-1960s, observed the discomfort that some of his colleagues exhibited around gay men and women and invented a word to describe it — homophobia — died on Monday in Manhattan. He was 87: here.
