in the Spain of General Franco it was taboo for any couple to snog in public. And i expect it is the same in some conservative religious countries around the world.

In the 'free west' people have much more freedom of expression, but this needs to be tempered to consider the sensibilities of residents from a more Conservative background. Doesn't Saudi Arabia still persecute gays ?

the stabbing victim was a male in his twenties ?

hate crime ? very vague description.

was the victim ?
gay ?


what does it take to get stabbed ?
