Gay Nebraska Woman's Attackers Carve Homophobic Slurs Into Her Skin!

Gay Nebraska woman attacked and carved in hate crime

Awful! Just…awful.

While the tragic massacre in Aurora, Colorado last Friday has the most people talking, another horrific crime has made national headlines.

A woman who identified as a lesbian was attacked in her Lincoln, Nebraska home on Sunday morning by three masked intruders. She was bound, beaten and stripped naked before the sick, twisted criminals carved hateful words like "dyke" into her skin and then set her home on fire.

Luckily, she managed to escape and get to a neighbors house to receive help. Unfortunately, her attackers — who also spray painted homophobic slurs (above) on her basement walls — are still at large.

Although we're deeply saddened to hear that hate crimes like this are still occurring in the country, at least over 500 people cared enough about equality to attend a candlelight vigil in support of the victim that same evening.

Karen Bratton-Cranford, an out and proud lesbian at the vigil, said:

"I'm not going back in the closet. You're not going to scare me back.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the anonymous victim. It's absolutely terrifying that the LGBT community faces this kind of danger in this day and age, but we must ALL be proud of who we are and not let fear determine our future.

We hope the three men responsible for this brutal crime are caught ASAP and brought to justice for their deplorable actions!

    SadieG, just because it's not AS bad as the Colorado shootings, doesn't mean it's not fucking terrible. This is one of the most awful things I've ever heard. Who would ever do something like this?

    And no, this is not a "minor gay crime". How is setting someone's home on fire and mutilating them a "minor" crime? Fuck.

    Re: Lady Who? – Wow! Calling it a "minor gay crime" comes across like a hate crime by itself.

    Re: Lady Who? – There is a distinction to be made between a senseless act of violence, like in Colorado (thoughts and prayers to those victims and their families), and an attack aimed purposely towards the gay community. This wonderful woman we are calling "rainbow Jane" has been an active member of the community, creating avenues for care and support for others. She is expressing concern for everyone who is making themselves visible in regards to this issue. My heart goes out to her.
    Second thing, of what good is speculation regarding it being faked? If it isn't don't you see the possible harm such statements make? Think about how lonely that could make someone feel…This is a story of hate against a particular group of people and the actions it can create. Colorado has

    Re: Lady Who? – He never equates them he just informs us that both have made the headlines. And referring to Lesbians as a mean bunch is just downright idiotic, you didn't know the woman and probably have never had the time to actually get to know some lesbians. So keep your unfair, unintelligent comments to yourself please.

    Re: Lady Who? – You are one horrible person. I see your posts on here and there always filled with hate and usually don't even make sense. I hope I never come near you. Lets see if that happened to you, you wouldnt call it a minor crime.

    I BLAME THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR THESE KIND OF CRIMES….
    THEY GO AROUND PREACHING ABOUT HOW BEING GAY IS A SIN YET THEY CAN FORGIVE EACH OTHER FOR RAPPING INNOCENT CHILDREN…..
    I HOPE THOSE CRAZY FUCKS ARE FOUND AND BURNED !!!!!!!!!

    So how about those lesbians who faked the hate crimes? No mention of those stories here.

    Re: SadieG – He did not compare it to the Colorado shootings. Please learn to read.
    What is comparable is the hate behind these two events. Sane or insane, those who do these kind of things are fueled by hate.

    Re: Lady Who? – He did not. Can't you read a simple sentence ?

    Sadly I doubt the police will do much investigating into this crime, it is Nebraska after all.

    There is another vigil being held in Omaha, Ne For this surviver ( Rainbow Jane) on Turs July 26th that is expecting up to 1800 people. With a fundraiser following at Kelly's hilltop bowling.

    Re: Lady Who? – Honestly, what is your problem? You can't compare two tragedies because they are obviously different. And this was a personal attack on the woman and on her lifestyle and who she chooses to love. This wasn't a random person they chose to attack. The attacked her because of just who she chooses to love. And for you to be such an ignorant, small-minded person and to call this a "minor" attack is sincerely just you being an incredibly awful human being. Don't call this crime minor. It is anything but minor. And please take some time to educate yourself. You're the douchebag in this situation, not Perez.

    Re: Jonoh – Actually, the Lincoln Police Dept. are taking this very seriously.

    She did it herself to raise awareness. It is nothing more than a stunt. Outlinc (Lincoln's Official GLBT Group) is no longer accepting donations for her survivor fund, and they are returning the donations they already accepted.

    I would like to see a follow up on this because I don't believe this woman was attacked. Like many other stories — I suspect she did this to herself.
