Broke my nose

actually some random guy at a party tonight broke it...

I was sitting on a couch with my boyfriend and some guy started screaming about ******s, I told him to watch his mouth, then a bunch of people pushed him out of the house and shut the door. (not welcome in a gay-friendly party) The guy punched a window out and walked across the street, me and a bunch of people crowded out to see where he went because we were calling the cops. Then his friend came up on me and assumed a "fighting" stance. I wasn't playing along, just standing there, and he punched me in the face. My glasses are broken, there's blood all over my favorite party clothes, my nose is broken, I spent the night in the hospital, and I can't see well enough to go on the cycling clubs first meet of the year in four hours.

Kind of annoying. All because I'm a ******

...at least I got some painkillers out of the deal.

that's terrible, he didnt do it cause you are a "******" like you said, he did it cause he is a very insecure little person. I have much more respect for you for being who you truly are.
Im very sorry about your nose, big hug.

Wouldn't that qualify as a hate crime?

Wow, Zinn-X, that's awful. More than that, it's really sad . Hope your nose heals up quickly, and that the "assclown" (thanks, Stacey) gets run over by a cement truck or something.

Sorry to hear this Zinn. It truly sucks.

I live in a smallish town in Indiana, not exactly the forefront of societal development. I have never understood the the zealous hatred of gay people. I am not gay, therefore some people have never been shy about spewing their venom about the "godd*mn ******s" in my presence (never more than once mind you). It makes me sick.

I sincerely feel for you.

Keep your head up, Zinn. For you, the pain will pass in a couple of days. For them, this will be on their records for life.

Speaking of records for life, Zinn-X, if you wanted to post them, mugshots are typically available from state webpages.

Somewhere, somehow, he will reap the rewards of his crop of pain and bull****. Perhaps those two cretins have future husbands waiting in the wings (like east wing, cellblock H).

Don't wish that until the guy coughs up money for Zinn's glasses, medical bills, pain & suffering, etc.

Sorry to hear that zinn, but figure on them getting to be someone's b!tch if they see prison time. And learn how to defend yourself. Someone takes an aggressive fighting stance, you should get into a defensive posture so you can duck and move out of their way.

I agree. I also think you should be willing to hurt someone to protect yourself. Some of these people are dangerous, and won't stop just because you aren't defending yourself. You could get killed taking the high road. If someone comes at me in an aggressive manner, I will, shall we say, take away their ability to attack for my own safety. I have that responsibilty to my family.

At the risk of pissing a bunch of people off like the last time I encouraged someone to be armed after having her nose broken, I agree that you should arm yourself. A taser would be perfect.





These things are nasty. No permanent damage, but they hurt worse than being shot according to most people who have experienced both.

Michigander's solution to every problem...guns! How much does a taser like that cost?

Hey, it beats having a hospital visit or worse.

A good modern taser is 500 bucks or so.

I bought 1 for my wife, the handle type for 150. It uses the same cartridges. The carts run about $25 each and r good for 1 shot. Not cheap but it could be a life saver.
