Homophobic attack on London bus - mod warning, please see OP

2 women were bloodily beaten up by a group of men in a violent homophobic attack. Why do some men get upset, angry and offended at gay people existing, they could have just minded their own business on what other's people's sexuality is but they rather intervene in strangers lives and beat them up for being gay.

Photo does look staged but believe it happened just it's a weird photo to take after what happened

You're not the sentimental type.

From another article on Sky:

"They started behaving like hooligans, demanding that we kissed so they could enjoy watching, calling us 'lesbians' and describing sexual positions. In an attempt to calm things down, I started making jokes. I thought this might make them go away. Chris even pretended she was sick, but they kept on harassing us, throwing us coins and becoming more enthusiastic about it."

Yeah, definitely sounds like the group you're not so subtly alluding to.

What? This has nothing to do with religious beliefs. The men wanted the women to put on a show for them. When they refused they beat them. So not just a homophobic attack, a misogynistic one too from men who think that women exist for their titillation, and who don't like to be told no

What is very worrying is that boys/men are normally socialized not to hit women...even today, it is much more likely that a man would be assaulted by strangers!

Toxic parenting affects girls and boys differently, boys/men lash out, girls/women have a different process.

Not only a bunch of scumbags for attacking a gay couple, but you're no man at all if you beat up a woman.
