I must admit to conflicted feelings about this one.

Well, the headline is ambiguous. Maybe the attack was committed by someone else entirely, but the woman is guilty of dyeing the dog pink, thus inviting violence on its owners. Or maybe dyeing a dog pink is a form of attack?

Fuck all of you and your "conflicted feelings" and the other insinuations that somehow the gay couple deserved the attack.

Fuck your bigotries -- because as you well know, that's the attitude that gives the idiot bigots the belief they have a license to bash.

You should be ashamed of yourselves, but I doubt you are, bigots.

Who dyes a dog pink?

Not the same idiots who paint themselves in the colors of their favorite football team, but somehow that idiocy doesn't give the rest of us the license to attack those particular idiots.

Bigot.

In a city that doesn't care, the 'outrage' would involve a pink couple walking a gay dog. Parrotwise: I confess, Holy Father, for eating a communion cracker prior to my ablutions.

Did you see the picture? That dog was fabulous. And that woman was probably jealous as hell that she could not pull off that look. She was NOT fabulous in any way.

She was found guilty of one count of Obstruction of Justice.

Huh?

What am I missing?

@4,5: good lord, calm down and breathe.

Of course the couple didn't deserve the attack. Am I a bigot because I am a gay man who finds the practice of dyeing a dog's fur pink to be gross?

I shouldn't have been flippant in my comment. For that I apologize.

A pink poodle? Thanks for shattering those stereotypes, fellas.

The woman looks like someone transplanted a small face onto a big giant head.

The dog looks kinda cute, and I don't even like poodles. I was expecting a less attractive shade of pink. The dog looks happy to be pink.

My favorite part of that story is her lawyer complaining that "homophobic slurs tainted the jury".

Because when you beat someone with a tire iron, your motivation is nobody's business.

"Convicted Masturbator Doesn't Get Off" is pretty good too.

I'd just like to state the unambiguous and obvious: the attackers are abominable, redneck trash who deserve prison. That's really all I take away from this story.

What the hell does "blessing" a parrot do? Does it make its poo like holy water?

way to disarm the word "bigot", judybrowni. ya fuckin' idiot. i guess i should have stated (although i thought it was pretty obvious) that, yes, the person who attacked the gay couple is a complete piece of shit. as an ASIDE, dying your dog is pretty fucking stupid. there, happy?

That pope/parrot/male stripper story is bullshit. The picture with the story has a pope and a parrot, but absolutely no male strippers in it.

@20: Ok, you win. I am bigoted against people who dye their dogs' hair to satisfy their own aesthetic whims. (and the color is irrelevant really)

No, these people did not deserve to be attacked. It is horrendous. Horrible. Awful. I hope the attackers face serious punishment.

Satisfied?

fuck you, judybrowni, for advocating the HATE CRIME of dying a poor, defenseless dog.

HATE CRIME!

I'm anti dog-dying. However, please READ the story. They did it with kool-aid. That's far less egregious than the fuckwits who pay my groomer to use actual dye on their dogs. I'd take my dog somewhere else out of protest, but she does a really great job with him (he gets a bath and trim...that's all).

@10,

From the context, it seems like she didn't do the attacking (her boyfriend did), but presumably gave false statements or some such to the police.

How do you know the pope isn't a male stripper?

It was kool-aide dye. And they dyed all three of their dogs temporarily for Easter. The pink one looks perfectly happy and healthy. This lady is a really ugly homophobe who's married to another really ugly homophobe.
