    And people can get arrested for threatening violence.

    Examples:

    Arrest after online posts seemingly threatened violence at fair - Fox 2 News Headlines

    UPDATE: Maize Teacher Arrested For Threatening Violence Against School

    Police Arrest OKC Man For Threatening Violence After Cat’s Death… |

    So yes, threatening violence is a crime. Even if the threatened violence is against homosexuals or because of your religious beliefs.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    I can see you wish you hadn't said you've been in jail or prison. Very well then. I just assumed if you were willing to reveal that about yourself you'd also be willing to go into more detail, but no matter.

    Violence is illegal, and in most places the threat of violence is illegal. Learn what is and is not illegal and you can avoid a repeat of future prison time.

    so..if I beat up a woman..it is an assault..

    If I beat up a lesbian it is a gay attack?

    As often happens here..black guys beat up a white person..it is an assault..

    White guys beat up a black guy...it is a racially motivated crime..

    Sheesh...

    If you beat up a lesbian yelling about her being gay, that would be an attack motivated, in all likelihood, by her being gay. If you beat her up for some other reason, then you should be able to defend your other reasoning, if you were in fact yelling something at her about being her being a lesbian.

    If a black guy is beating up a white guy and yelling stuff at him about him being white, then it is evidence of a racially motivated crime. If a white guy beats up a black guy for "getting in his face" and no racial epithets were stated by the white guy, then the prosecution would have to prove racial motivation some other way that is going to likely be hard to do, especially if all the evidence indicates that the white guy would have beat up any guy, no matter their race, for the same "offense".

    This would probably work in a perfect world of course...

    Unfortunately not in ours!!

    Your words,not mine.
    Doesn't matter to me what terminology people want to use,assaulting people is still wrong and should be punished to the full extent of the law.
    Threatening to commit violence against someone for whatever reason is still wrong and should be punished to the full extent of the law.
    You don't have a problem with that,do you?

    Still, that's not sufficient for hate crime prosecution. It must be demonstrated that there was no other motivation and the attacker must be a member of or possess material from a recognized hate group that targets the victim's gender/etc.
