Can lesbians commit a hate crime against a gay man?

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Roy Cohn was gay, and the man was a walking hate crime. But it is an interesting question. From the Boston Herald:

Prosecutor Lindsey Weinstein said the two sisters and one of their domestic partners, Lydia Sanford, also a defendant, viciously beat the man Sunday, repeatedly punching and kicking him after he bumped them with his backpack on a stairwell.

She said the victim, who suffered a broken nose, told cops he believed the attack was “motivated as a crime because of his sexual orientation” since the three women “called him insulting homophobic slurs.”
