“It's shocking every time it happens, but it's not new to us at the center," said Will Batts, who runs the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Center. "We hear a lot of stories about people who are assaulted by family members. Young people who are kicked out of their houses when they come out to a parent.”

The unidentified victim told investigators he was in bed when his mother accused him of being gay. When he tried to leave the room, he says his mother punched him in the face. She remains jailed on $1,000 bond. I wonder what she has to say about the son now ?
