unicorn booty, gay news, gay blog, hate crime25 year old Sarah Gilbert was arrested outside of an Alabama bar after being attacked by a group of people, including two men. Althought Gilbert was targeted because she was a lesbian, and police officers were unable to provide a reason for the arrest to a local news affiliate, Alabama hate crime laws to not protect citizens on the basis of their sexual orientation. Gilbert, the victim, was the only person arrested – even though she was beat by two men.

“As they were hitting me and everything, I heard a man say ‘If you want to look like a man, you’ll get hit like a man.’” Horrendous.

Gilbert added, “Im an American, just like the rest of us are. I have rights. I have the same rights y’all do supposedly. But people from here don’t look at it that way.”
