Hate Crime?  Yep.

“Jane Currie and her partner, Anji Dimitriou, both small, soft-spoken women, were waiting with other parents at Gordon B. Attersley public school in Oshawa, when, fists flying, a man attacked them, his blows as harmful as his words.” (From The Star)

I’m glad to hear these ladies are getting a lot of support (if 3000 Facebook friends counts as support) after a violent, disgusting attack by a man named Mark Scott. In a Toronto Star article, Jane Currie (not one of the victims but one of the survivors), says “He went after us because of who we are.”

I disagree. He went after you because of what HE is: a small, ignorant bigot.

Read the rest in here, but if you are a survivor of violence and try to avoid triggers, please know it contains a description of the verbal and physical attack.
