A Cape Girardeau, Missouri woman is recovering from injuries she sustained from an attack by teenage neighbors, directed at her over her sexual orientation. She says the teens have been harassing her and her partner, Southeast Missourian reports:
The couple say the teen began shouting slurs at them, as had happened on several other occasions, and they responded by telling her to get off their property. There have been other times in the past several months, the couple said, that they have told the children's parents that they were concerned with anti-gay slurs coming from the children. But no physical threats had happened until now.
