A 16-year-old girl, confided in her father about her ‘struggle’ with her identity. Instead of consoling, helping and accepting her. The father went into an ‘uncontrollable’ fit of rage and decided to rape his own daughter in order to prove to her that ‘sex was better with men’.

Pink news reported:

“As a 16-year-old girl she realised she was gay and struggling with her identity as many people do at that age, she decided to tell you,” Judge Lockhart.

“You reacted by showing real and uncontrolled anger, and you decided to rape her to show her why it would be better to have sex with men than women. Her evidence made harrowing listening.”

The judge added that the crime involved “degradation and humiliation” for the victim. 

“The offence demonstrated your hostility towards her as a lesbian,” the judge added.

The independent has reported that:

The 54-year-old has not been named to protect the victim’s identity and Warwick Crown Court heard that two other of his daughters have suffered abuse from him across two decades. 

The man has been found guilty of three charges of rape, one charge of indecency with a child during the 1980s and 1990s and nine charges of indecent assault.

This case is merely one example of the negative reaction the LGBT community too often face when revealing their identity to friends and family. Hate crimes against LGBT people are often underreported or framed in a way that ignores the underlying homophobic issue.
