    I'm proud of him for doing the right thing. Sucks he got hurt but it will make his message more substantial.

    It shows how people hang out with similar types to themselves.

    The woman spewed anti-gay garbage (presumably), and her boyfriend is obviously a thug.

    A perfect match.

    But are the police going to do anything? If a gay man bloodied up a straight guy I can tell you the results.

    Hopefully this man is going to press assault charges against this bumbling bitch's boyfriend.

    I agree he should press charges, but unless the derrogotory words were specifically addressed towards him he should have kept his mouth shut. It's is not his place to correct or "educate" a grown woman (and a stranger at that) uninvited. What did he expect the outcome to be when dealing with such Neanderthals? It would be interesting to know if he would have confronted her BF it was he who made the remarks.

    If it was a dinner party and she and he were guests and she made derrogotory comments about gays he could have then said something as he would be a captive audience and well within his right to interject his POV into the conversation. But a complete stranger on the street? You're just inviting trouble.

    If you heard her using the n word wouldn't you say something? Or something offensive about Jews or Hispanics?

    I agree, but nothing, absolutely nothing warrants the other guy being physical in this case.

    If the derogatory comments are not directed at me or anyone in my company or anyone specifically, no, I wouldn't say anything.

    @Undercoverman....

    I see what you're saying, but it's leaning towards blaming the victim. Yes I fully admit he was asking for trouble when he affirmatively interjected himself into the situation.

    However, I can yell pejorative terms at you all day and all night on the sidewalk, and unless and until you trump up a charge of "disturbing the peace" or "obscene conduct" then words are mere words. You're free to yell back. TOUCHING is assault, and it crosses a line. There literally have to be bright-line rules for society. This happens to be one. Lay a finger on a person and they'll own part of your bank account, and if the defendant is too poor they'll get 15 to 20% (depending on the state rules) of the defendant's paycheck every payday until the judgment is paid off. Cross the line if you want, but be prepared to pay. And you don't need the DA to "press charges." You can bring a civil suit yourself without any condition precedent (for example, the state had to bring criminal charges against OJ, and the family later brought civil charges...and won).

    Oh, and in a civil suit only has to prove "preponderance of the evidence" (more likely than not, or 50% plus anything) where as criminal suits are the reasonable doubt standard (98% certainty).

    That's you, and he's himself. Some would, some wouldn't. So, no, 'he should've kept his mouth shut' is your opinion, and there is no correct or wrong course of action IMO.
