Just got something on my mind and I need you lot to confirm something for me. I was out with a couple of my friends (two women who are happily married to each other) about 2/3 months ago. We had been out to the theatre and then went for a couple of drinks down town. I didn't drink much seeing as I'm diabetic,so I was sober. While we were waiting for our taxi home at about 1am outside a kebab shop, a man came up to us who looked fairly intoxicated. He started shouting abuse at my friends once he found out they were lesbians. We walked away but he caught us up and beat up one of my friends. I rang the police and they took him away. I'm due in court tomorrow to give my evidence. I have just found out that he has told the court that he wasn't drunk, he's diabetic and was in a hypo at the time of the assault. Now I know sometimes being hypo you don't know what you're doing and some people may get a little angry. But surely he can't blame diabetes on him being a homophobic woman beater???!!!???!?!????! I just can't come to terms with it, are they really going to believe him? If they do ... What else can people blame being diabetic on!?!?!? Please help! Thank you! A very confused Beth.
