A would-be gay-basher got more than he bargained for when the two men he attacked in a New York City bodega turned out to be trained graduates of the U.S. military academy at West Point.
According to the New York Daily News,
West Point graduates and husbands Daniel and Larry Lennox-Choate were
shopping at a bodega in SoHo when a man spewing antigay epithets rushed
up and punched Daniel in the face.
Larry Lennox-Choate wrote on Facebook that he leapt to his husband’s defense and the assailant “left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs.”
“I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward
loser he is,” the Facebook post continued. “The hate crimes division of
the NYPD is on the case and we have full faith a positive outcome will
“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,” he concluded.
The couple graduated from West Point in the classes of 2007 and 2009 and were married in 2013.
And that, folks, is why rightwingers don't want gays in the military -- I mean, teach a few gay men and women how to defend themselves and the next thing you know, they'll start kicking rightwing ass right and left!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't have that, can we!!!!! And God only knows what would happen if a few gay people owned guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!
