Quote# 65033

Nearly four years ago in Brooklyn's Brownsville area, Steven Pomie nearly beat Dwan Prince (pictured) to death for coming on to him. Pomie attacked Prince once, then came back for a second round with a cohort, and returned for a third assault only to be stopped by witnesses. By that point, Prince was unconscious. So how come Prince is now lobbying for a light sentence of his attacker? It might have something to do with Prince blaming himself for the anti-gay attack.

Prince was a witness at the first trial, though he has no memory of the assault. His testimony illustrated the devastating results of the attack. His more sympathetic posture toward Pomie could sway a jury. While the assault left Prince partially paralyzed, he blamed himself.

“I was at blame so it is my to my strongest degree that you get out as soon as possible,” Prince wrote.

“Steve you changed me!” Prince wrote. “So hopefully when you get out we can hang out. You know me. I know you. I help you calm that angry machine down. And allow you to know I am not gay but a lover, and you can find me a female I can love and can love me.”

Prince has been attending a Bible study class at the Riverside Church, a liberal congregation, but he said he has not discussed his changed sexual orientation there.

“I am looking to change my life these days,” Prince, who is HIV-positive, told Gay City News. “I am looking for a female who I can marry and have my sperm washed and have children… With me going to church, I feel myself that I must try to live by the Bible, I must try to live by God’s law.”

That's one weird reasoning.

...and have my sperm washed...

Whaaaaaaat?

There has to be something missing from this story, if it is true (it sounds fabricated to me). There are just too many questions raised, namely why the hell you'd want to hang out with someone who beat the shit out of you, despite your sexual orientation! Geez...

So now he hates his sexuality to the point that he thinks it's right for him to have been beaten to the point where he can't remember it. Thanks, Jesus.

You might want to see a therapist (a real one!) about your low self esteem.

Ok, I had to google this - dude, doesn't have anything to do with getting rid of HIV

But if you believe Drs in Uganda, then you can lessen the risk, at least that's the theory...

Reminds me of that In Living Color episode when 'Twan gets clobbered and wakes up straight.

Brain Damage to the rescue.

Ow. There's just so much to *headdesk* in this that I'm going to have to refrain, lest I have the same brain-damage-related conversion to heterosexuality that this guy did.

For those who asked, there's a technique (I don't know if it's called "sperm washing" though) that takes a vial of semen, spins in really, really fast, and that somehow separates the sperm from the "junk" material in the sample (the “junk” includes the HIV virus) It's a way for an HIV+ man to have kids without passing the HIV onto the mother via unprotected sex. However, I don’t know exactly how safe it really is, having never researched it all that thoroughly.

EDIT: Yes, apparently it's called "sperm washing" (though this isn't the only reason sperm can be washed) Interesting explanation here:

Sad. Sounds like the assault left him so traumatized he went back into the closet. It really sucks because it kind of promotes beating up gay people. He shouldn't be defending his attacker.

Sounds like the assault left his brain a little fried. If this isn't a POE, my loathing of Christianity has reached a new high, considering how many gays they've brainwashed into "changing" their sexual orientation.

Brain damage was extensive. How come no one noticed that during trial?

I second the mindset of the one who submitted this.

And somehow I get the feeling Dwan Prince does as well, in a different manner...

That is, assuming this isn't just utter bullshit.

A reason to have a CCW permit.

Prince should be the fundie named. It talks more about his self-homophobia than Steven Pomie.

Sane Christians wouldn't defend an attack like that, no matter what they thought of homosexuality. Please get help.

Mister Spak

Does this mean if we beat a fundie until he has brain damage he will turn away from his perversion? No, wait, fundies already have brain damage, that's why they're fundies in the first place.

If this is true, then the facts can't be disputed.

Christianity is the result of brain damage.

Holy crap, is this for real?
Please, please get help. You need to learn to accept yourself and deal with it.

Nearly four years ago in Brooklyn's Brownsville area, Steven Pomie nearly beat Dwan Prince (pictured) to death for coming on to him.

Someone needs some jail time.

Pomie attacked Prince once, then came back for a second round with a cohort, and returned for a third assault only to be stopped by witnesses.

Some REALLY long jail time.

By that point, Prince was unconscious. So how come Prince is now lobbying for a light sentence of his attacker? It might have something to do with Prince blaming himself for the anti-gay attack.

Well, let's see where this is heading.

Prince was a witness at the first trial, though he has no memory of the assault. His testimony illustrated the devastating results of the attack. His more sympathetic posture toward Pomie could sway a jury. While the assault left Prince partially paralyzed, he blamed himself.

If I were part of the jury, this poor guy's health would sway me to put Pomie away for good.

“I was at blame so it is my to my strongest degree that you get out as soon as possible,” Prince wrote.

...because you want to hit on him again? Something like that? I don't understand it.

“Steve you changed me!” Prince wrote. “So hopefully when you get out we can hang out. You know me. I know you. I help you calm that angry machine down. And allow you to know I am not gay but a lover, and you can find me a female I can love and can love me.”

You want to "hang out"? Knew it. Get some help, and date someone who'll love you.

Prince has been attending a Bible study class at the Riverside Church, a liberal congregation, but he said he has not discussed his changed sexual orientation there.

Get some real help.

“I am looking to change my life these days,” Prince, who is HIV-positive, told Gay City News. “I am looking for a female who I can marry and have my sperm washed and have children… With me going to church, I feel myself that I must try to live by the Bible, I must try to live by God’s law.”

Wow. Get some REAL REAL help.

Oh, what the hell? I understand feeling guilty, feeling like it's your own damn fault you were abused -- believe me, I KNOW -- but this is just ridiculous!
