    US shaken by sudden surge of violence against gay people

    Is this really happening? Is this a trend that DPers are seeing in their own communities? I'd be very interested to hear whether anyone agrees or disagrees with the thrust of this article.

    This is the first I've heard of it.

    I bet it's a case of something similar to missing white woman syndrome.

    I have heard nothing whatsoever that would indicate to me any such thing.

    When a pretty white girl goes missing, the news cannot talk about anything else for weeks on end. Ugly/old/minority/male? Maybe you get a one-line mention on your local news station. Maybe.

    Probably related to the fact that sex (or as close as they're allowed to get on national TV) sells, and hot/pretty white girls are, likely, attractive (not to say, sexually attractive/sexy), thus drawing more viewers to their station.

    Or so goes my guess at what the theory is, in my cynical mind.

    Overhyped news-fodder. Very little violence against gays for being gay in the news here. None locally for quite some time.

    I think that this is the opposite, more of a matter of gays being more accepted in society, and any bigotry against them becoming more and more unacceptable, and therefore noticeable.
