Please don't make it up.
There are hate crimes. But really, please don't make it up. Yet that's what one woman did. She needs to apologize to all those who have actually been attacked because of their perceived sexual orientation, race, or other civil rights issues. I was once told to leave town because of my sexual orientation - that's discrimination. I suspect that the mother who told me so was worried about one of her sons being gay. I know that I didn't know the man with whom she accused me of having an affair. And that sort of situation needs to be addressed, but being gay or lesbian or anything else is no excuse for making up a crime.
