Gay Basher Attacked Married West Point Couple – And It Did Not Go Well
Daniel and Larry Lennox-Choate were minding their own business, shopping in a SoHo bodega, when some anti-gay lunatic came up and started shouting obscenities and gay slurs at them, before punching Daniel Lennox-Choate in the face.
However, the roving violent bigot picked the wrong couple to mess with–the Lennox-Choates were the first gay male couple to marry at West Point Military Academy back in 2013.
On his Facebook page, Larry Lennox-Choate wrote:
“He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is…We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves, but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.”
I am no fan of violence, but when someone attacks you and punches you in the face like that? By all means! Be my guest! Knock yourself out! Or them!
Police are currently investigating the incident, although no arrests have yet been made. Anti-gay attacks are down 20 percent this year in New York City, with 43 so far this year compared to 54 last year at this time. Which is really, really still not okay.
