Disabled man raped

In Philadelphia, a homosexual man "raped a wheelchair-bound man in a supermarket bathroom." After his arrest the perpetrator told reporters " "Find yourself some real crime to deal with" (CBS 3).

If this was a case about a disabled gay man being assaulted by a straight man, it would likely be on every TV news program in the country but since this is a story about a homosexual perpetrator, I predict that the media reaction will likely be a collective yawn.

A collective yawn? I'm picturing more of a turning their back as they put their hands over their eyes and repeat "I can't hear you, I can't hear you."
