Cruel dad whipped his teen son mercilessly after finding him using Grindr

Cruel dad whipped his teen son mercilessly after finding him

A father in a southern England town assailed his own 15-year-old son – humiliating him and whipping him with a television cable – all because he joined Grindr.

Courts in Plymouth heard how the father launched into a brutal display of dominance against his own child as he lashing he son 20 times while calling him gay and a “woman” for joining the queer dating app.

The man, who is in his 40s but cannot be named to protect the identity of his son, forced his son to strip to just his underwear, PlymouthLive reported, in a disturbing saga that came to an end when the son fled his family home and broke down at school.

Senior barristers commented that the son will likely not only suffer from physical scarring due to the attack, but long-lasting psychological trauma, too.

Father launches into rash of violence against his own child for having Grindr on his mobile phone.

Plymouth Crown Court heard how the father hurled a volley of homophobic and transphobic insults towards his own son. His legal counsel sought to argue that the attack was not driven by hostility towards his child’s sexuality.

But the judge told the defendant: “You asked him about photographs of lots of boys on his phone and shouted ‘You are gay’ and ‘you are a woman’.

“You shouted: ‘What’s that between your legs?’

“You hit him again and again, some 20 times, with the television cable. You caused him ‘loads of pain’, to use his words.

“I have no doubt that part of the reason you became angry is that you saw material which you thought indicated he was bisexual.”

‘The son will inevitably suffer some psychological consequences,’ says senior barrister.

Prosecutors said the father asked to borrow the son’s mobile phone, leading him to see Grindr and the photographs that prompted the deluge of violence. He cornered the teen who then left to see a friend that evening.

The morning after, the father, again, confronted his son, lobbing vile remarks before forcing him to take off his pyjamas. Shivering in just underwear and socks, the son was then struck by his father “multiple times across his body, particularly his arm, breaking the skin there”, the Crown Prosecution Service’s Francesca Whebell said.

“While he was beating his son, the defendant was continuing to ask questions,” she said, noting that the father’s attack appeared motivated his the teen “exploring his sexuality”.

The son only managed to escape, she said, after he asked for a glass of water. He instead grabbed his school uniform and fled the scene, changing his clothes before class.

The defendant pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm on 30 September last year.

Recorder Pilgerstorfer QC said: “On the basis of the photographs, he is likely to be left with some scarring on his arm and he will inevitably suffer some psychological consequences.”

In the latest flare-up amid the Black Lives Matter protests continuing to seize major US cities, a Black trans man was left with his jaw and eye socket shattered after two men brutally beat him up.

Samson Tequir, 30, who helps organise demonstrations in Rochester, New York, was assailed last Friday afternoon (July 31), law enforcement said.

Surveillance footage from a nearby storefront captured the rattling moment when two males hurl anti-LGBT+ slurs at Tequir outside Big Town Grocery at Denver Street and Parsells Avenue on the city’s east side, then, while walking home with bags of groceries, everything went dark.

He was unconscious. Medics said he was likely struck more than once. Tequir awoke to the sounds of his friend yelling, the dialling of police.

Tequir, now wearing a black eyepatch in his home, told Democrat & Chronicle that, following the attack, he now needs titanium plates inserted to repair a broken eye socket and suffered multiple fractures to his cheekbone.

Trans Black Lives Matter demonstrater brutally beaten by two men: ‘My story is not new.’

“My story is not new,” he reflected.

“It is not the last one, and I can look around the room I am in right now and find more of those stories just the same. The only reason you are hearing about it is because people happened to know my name.”

It was warm when Tequir and his partner left to grab Gatorade and water. Watching his partner go inside the grocers, Tequir described, he said two men down the street began to yell.

They lobbed abuse at him, saying “I couldn’t stand on the corner like that”, and shouted: “I had to get off his corner with that gay [expleitive].”

The men drew closer and “they told me that I shouldn’t be dressed like that, I had to get out of here with these gay clothes and all that.”

After Tequir said he would not leave until his partner was done shopping, the men, he said, then went into the Big Town Grocery and were hostile towards Tequir’s partner.

Tequir said that the pair focused on getting back home while the men lurked behind them, but the men struck Tequir’s head, hurling him into unconsciousness.

“The preliminary investigation revealed that the victims were approached by two suspects who engaged in a verbal altercation with the victims regarding one of the victim’s sexual orientation,” read a statement released by the Rochester Police Department.

“The Rochester Police Department is investigating this incident as a potential hate crime and is consulting with the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office.”
