24 year old guy beaten to death in Northern Spain over his sexuality during Pride weekend in Politics and World Events Posted July 6 8 minutes ago, Je5u5 said: I hate how they are trying to turn this into "The killers didn't know him so they didn't know he was gay, so they didn't really mean it when they were shouting "Faggot" while beating him to death". Newsflash: every day members of the LGBT community have to deal with people that don't know them saying stuff about them, sometimes directly to them, sometimes to others or even to themselves but with a tone and intention to be heard. The guy was doing a videocall with one of his lesbian friends and her girlfriend, I'm sure he was acting like many gay guys would and this was noticed by the animals that killed him. The saddest part is seeing the "but they didn't know him, so they couldn't have known he was gay" narrative invading not only social media but the press. Where are those people living? So disgusting. They didn't know he was gay but called hi fag anyway = hate crime, no matter how it's parsed. You think we've come so far in this world, and then suddenly you're reminded that we haven't. Not far enough and not by a long-shot. Love to Samuel's family and friends.
