P’town says straight-bashing taking place

ptown_hateThe Boston Globe reports today that out in Provincetown on the tip of Cape Cod, “leaders are holding a public meeting today to air concerns about slurs and bigoted behavior. And this time, they say, it’s gay people who are displaying intolerance.”

“Police say they logged numerous complaints of straight people being called ‘breeders’ by gays over the July Fourth holiday weekend. Jamaican workers reported being the target of racial slurs. And a woman was verbally accosted after signing a petition that opposed same-sex marriage, they said.”

That said, one police sergeant told the paper, “I don’t necessarily view this as a big problem, but it’s certainly a blip on our radar screen.”
