Of all the queerbashing I have heard of, it was always a group doing the bashing. I used to be in the military, and there were four serious gaybashing incidents that I knew of. The victims were always cornered by two or more cowards, and they were usually armed. There was one incident near where I live now, in the state of Wyoming, where two young men searched for someone who they thought fit their gay category. These two criminals kidnapped a young man, tied him to a fence and beat him. He died crucified on the fence.

Jumping someone because they appear or act differently is a cowardly act, and deserve jail time. That's just my two centavos.
