Lincoln Nebraska Lesbian Bound, Gagged, With Anti-Gay Slurs Cut Into Her Body Survives Brutal Hate Crime

A Lincoln, Nebraska woman became the victim of HORRIBLE hate crime on Sunday morning when three masked men  barged into her house, bound her wrists and ankles with zip  ties, cut her all over her body and carved homophobic slurs into her skin before  dumping gasoline on her floor of her house and lighting it with a match.

The woman survived crawling  from her blazing house, naked and bleeding and screaming for help  reaching the doorstep of a neighbor’s home.

The Omaha World Herald adds:

[Capt. Jim] Davidsaver said the victim’s  description of the suspects was limited because of the masks. When police  arrived, the house was still on fire, the captain said. He said it caused about  $200 in damage. Davidsaver would not say what words the men carved into the  woman’s skin. “We need to maintain the integrity of the case,” he  said.

But Erin Thompson of Lincoln, who described herself as the victim’s  best friend, said she got a call from her friend about 6:30 Sunday morning. The  friend asked Thompson to pick her up from the hospital.

“They carved on  me,” Thompson said her friend tearfully told her.

Thompson said three  epithets, including the word “dyke,” were carved on the woman’s arms and  stomach.

Police are still searching for suspects and have not made any arrests.

A Facebook group has also been formed. and a vigil for the poor women took place Sunday night attended by hundreds:

  1. And breeders call gay people a threat to civilization and western culture. I am so proud to be an out progressive homo.

  2. *breeders* don’t call gay people a threat. Biggoted, unstable idiots do. To infer that anyone not gay is by default anti-gay and biggoted, is as bad as those who verbally (and sometimes physically) attack the gay population in the first place. Tolerance and lack of prejustice is a wonderful thing and should work both ways…

    And needless to say, on the subject of the original article, I so hope they catch those responsible. I literally can’t undertsand the mental attitude and state of mind that could make somebody do that. How can you ever inflict that sort of pain (both physical and mental) on a fellow human being for simply being different from you?

  3. I used the word breeders with contempt, and to make a point. Now get off your high horse. I never made any inference and you should not as well. You don’t know me and my sensitivity and this forum is not here to attack the very people that are of a like mind as you. Well not entirely of a like mind like yours. I did not jump on you first. When the haters out there learn to respect our humanity I will then respect theirs. And yours too.
