TEXAS CASE SPOTLIGHTS `GAY-ON-GAY´ DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Autor: Terry Philips Fuente: Family News In Focus

What is the greatest danger to gays: being the victim of a so-called hate crime or the victim of violence from a partner?

The recent murder of a Texas woman by her lesbian lover has again raised the issue of gay-on-gay domestic violence. It's the secret homosexuals don't like to confront.

It's not that homosexuals don't know that violence against one another is a major problem; they just don't want it to become common knowledge, according to Robert Knight, director of the Culture and Family Institute in Washington, D.C.

"Homosexual activists are worried people who don't agree with their political agenda may seize upon this and say, 'See, this is another reason to dissuade people from getting involved in homosexuality,' " Knight said.

The statistics prove it to be a very compelling reason.

" 'We believe as many as 650,000 gay men may be victims of domestic violence each year in the United States,' according to two homosexual activists who wrote a book several inches thick on the subject," reports Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association in Michigan.

Other data suggests lesbian domestic violence is at least equal in extent.

"There is a book called 'Violent Betrayal,' by Claire Renzetti, in which she documents women are four times more likely to be victims of domestic violence in a lesbian household than in a married household," Knight said.

But the huge disparity is in the reality of a gay being victimized by a partner, rather than by a gay-basher.

Glenn concluded that if mainstream media want to be effective rather than politically correct, they would shine the light on the semi-secret of homosexual violence against one another.
