A lady has revolted against a shocking assault she and her better half were exposed to while going on a night transport in North London.
28-year-old Melania Geymonat had been out on the town with her better half Chris, and had been going back to Chris’ home in Camden when the assault occurred on May 30.
Subsequent to acknowledging they were a couple, a gathering of men on the transport started requesting Melania and Chris kiss before them for their diversion. At the point when they can’t, the group continued to genuinely attack them, leaving them both shrouded in blood.
Air master Melania has spoken about the assault over Facebook, depicting it as ‘jerk, misanthropic and homophobic savagery’.
Reviewing how the men’s provocation immediately heightened to actual savagery, Melania composed:
They began carrying on like law breakers, requesting that we kissed so they could appreciate watching, calling us ‘lesbians’ and portraying sexual positions.
I don’t recollect the entire scene, yet the word ‘scissors’ stuck in my psyche. It was just them and us there.
Attempting to diffuse the circumstance, Melania attempted to make jokes, while Chris claimed to feel unwell. Be that as it may, this didn’t deflect the pack, who just turned out to be more ‘eager’.
The before I know it is that Chris is in the transport battling with them. Rashly, I went over yonder just to discover her face draining and three of them pummeling her.
The before I know it is I’m being punched. I got dazed at seeing my blood and fell back. I don’t recollect whether I passed out.
The gathering of men at that point purportedly took things from the bloodied couple prior to escaping the scene. Melania has not gotten back to work since the assault, and is uncertain starting at yet whether her nose is broken.
Composing on Facebook, Melania made some noise fearlessly against demonstrations of homophobic brutality:
What disturbs me the most is that VIOLENCE HAS BECOME A COMMON THING, that occasionally it’s important to see a lady seeping in the wake of having been punched to feel some sort of effect.
I’m worn out on being taken as a SEXUAL OBJECT, of discovering that these circumstances are common, of gay companions who were pummeled JUST BECAUSE. We need to bear verbal badgering AND CHAUVINIST, MISOGYNISTIC AND HOMOPHOBIC VIOLENCE since when you defend yourself poo like this occurs.
Incidentally, I am grateful to all the ladies and men in my day to day existence that comprehend that HAVING BALLS MEANS SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. I simply trust that in June, Pride Month, stuff like this can be stood up uproariously so they STOP HAPPENING!
