I have a family member i love dearly and several friends who have been physically attacked simply because of a perceptio and bogotted response from their assalants. no words were echanged to provke anyone. It was simply hate. Freedom of speech, whe involved, can be dealt with case by case. but when someone walks by you and pushes you to the groung and then tells you they can because you're a faggot..is that not hate motivated?
