Gay hairstylist takes stand; lesbians charged with hate crime

In New Mexico, gay Santa Fe hairstylist Antonio Darden has refused to cut Gov. Susana Martinez's hair because she does not support same-sex marriage, according to Newser.com . Darden said, "Because of her stances and her views on this I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I'd changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no again." Despite her position on marriage, Martinez recently appointed an openly gay man to the state's Public Regulation Commission.

In Boston, three lesbians have been charged with a hate crime against a gay man, according to Advocate.com . Erika Stroud, her sister Felicia Stroud and her partner, Lydia Sanford, allegedly attacked a gay man in a subway station, kicking and punching him after he bumped into the women in a stairwell. However, Sanford's attorney, Helene Tomlinson, is arguing that since her client is an out lesbian, there is no hate crime involved. District Attorney Daniel F. Conley disagreed, saying the alleged attackers' sexual orientation is a non-factor.

This country has become a freak fest.


"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."
