gaypanicA San Antonio man was murdered in front of a local bar after he allegedly made a sexual advance toward another man. Enrique Santos, 22,  has confessed to the murder of 50 year old, Jorge Sgetelmeg, stating that a fight broke out after Sgetelmeg purchased some beer for Santos.  According to Santos’ confession and affidavit, Sgetelmeg and he were sharing the beer in his SUV.  Sgetelmeg made a sexual advance at Santos and Santos punched him several times in the face before removing a rock from his pocket and hitting him several more times – then chocking the man with a neck tie.

Sgetelmeg was found dead, but Santos’ driving was no match for his intoxication.  He crashed and was arrested by police fro driving while intoxicated and on a previous traffic warrant.  The connection to the murder was made by the detectives as witnesses had provided a description of Santos’ black SUV.

This happened in my hometown.  It’s not the first and certainly won’t be the last violent, unnecessary crime that occurs simply because someone’s ego was compromised; however, we can only hope that a San Antonio jury will not acquit this admitted murderer as other juries have done when the Gay Panic Defense has been invoked.

    Everytime I read one of these stories, my heart breaks and my mind reels. Some straight men must be extremely unbalanced. I would be these are the same men who have no trouble making sexual 'advances' (or worse) toward women. I am counting the number of dead bodies I would have in my history if I murdered every guy who made a sexual advance at me. And I use advance lightly because I was physically trapped or harassed at least ten times in my life, often by a group of young teens at school. At least 100. No, I wasn't that hot. Young and old straight men can be pigs. I wonder how I would have been viewed. Oh wait, I know." I asked for it. " Probably by wearing those sexy turtlenecks and bluejeans that I wore.

    Premeditation? I always carry a rock in my pocket so that when I’m ready to pick a fight with straights I will be prepared to bash their heads in. I mean of course only in the event that one should try and make advances after I either willingly invite them into my vehicle/home or willingly end up in theirs. WTF!?!
