A guy from Queens -- he's 28 -- is on the street in the West Village on Friday night. He sees a group of women, stops one and tells her she's pretty.

The 19-year-old blows him off. The man, Dwayne Buckle, reportedly uses a "homophobic slur" and tells the women he's going to have sex with all of them. In not so many words. He also spits on the woman he's trying to woo.

The result: Buckle is in critical condition after being stabbed in the stomach. WNBC reports:
Joining in the attack were the woman's six friends ranging in age from 18 to 31, according to police. The Daily News said they beat him with belts, and punched and kicked him.

Police arrested the women a block away on charges of attempted murder and gang assault. ...

"He spat on us and threw a cigarette," another of the woman told the Daily News. "This is a hate crime," she said hours after the incident, as police led the seven suspects out of the 6th Precinct stationhouse.

According to a published report in Saturday's editions of the New York Post, relatives and friends of the women -- who are all from Newark -- said they are lesbians and denied the women attacked Buckle. The Daily News referred to the women as “a gang of petite but ornery lesbians."
Petite but ornery and handy with a steak knife.

Lesbians come out to play?

Why not? Jellico cats come out to play.

That's what I get for reading TS Elliot over the weekend and thinking of Old Possom's like me ....
