    Grandma Jailed Over Beating Teen In Lesbian Clinch
    by 365Gay.com Newscenter Staff

    Posted: June 16, 2008 - 3:00 pm ET

    (Reading, Pennsylvania) A 61-year old Reading woman is in jail awaiting trial for allegedly beating her granddaughter with a cane and a belt after finding the teen in bed with another girl.

    Joyce Y. Beddell is charged with aggravated and simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and endangering the welfare of a child.

    She is being held in jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

    Police said that Beddell discovered her granddaughter in bed having sex with a neighborhood teen girl.

    The neighboring teen ran when Beddell entered the room, according to police, and escaped the elder woman's wrath.

    The granddaughter was not so lucky. Beddell allegedly took a cane and then a belt to the 16 year old. She then forcibly took the girl from the house.

    Neighbors saw Beddell taking the limping granddaughter to the other girl's home where she informed that girl's parent of the affair.

    Police say Beddell then took the 16-year home where she proceeded to beat her again.

    The 16-year old suffered serious bruises to her buttocks and legs.

    Police were called to the house to investigate a report of child abuse. It is not clear who filed the abuse report.

    The teen is being treated in hospital for unspecified injuries the Reading Eagle reported.

    Beddell told police that she had done nothing wrong, the paper reported, and said she should be allowed to discipline her granddaughter as she sees fit.

    Discipline? Beating your child/grandchild is hardly what I'd call discipline.

    I hope she honestly gets what's coming to her.

    What also boggles my mind is what exactly is she disciplining her for?

    (I do know why but it is of course a rherotical question, lol And just unbelievable )

    I think homophobia will gradually decrease as older people die. Younger generations are much more cool with gayness.

    I do spank my son on his bottom when he rightfully deserves it for bad behavior but this is ridiculous. I can see spanking for excessive lying, stealing, being disrespectful, etc. BUT GAY! You've got to be kidding me! Beating a child with a cane and belt like that is not discipline, it's assault! Humiliation can also be a form of abuse like that too. I correct my son and guide him but I would never think to humiliate him to punish him. I've taught my son from an early age to accept all people regardless of their differences. I heard him "religious" aunt ask him a while back something to the effect of what he would do if he saw a man walk down the street dressed like a woman. My son simply replied "Nothing, if he's happy that's all that matters. That's what my mom always says." I couldn't be prouder!

    There is a huge difference between a spanking and a beating as well. Not all people will say that but I'm a spanking supporter myself so I know what you mean, lol

    sad story although 16 is too young for sexual activity.

    on a happier note, a lovely old lesbian couple - both in their 80's! - in california tied the knot yesterday.


    "When they first fell in love, they were fired from their jobs, risked being arrested and sent to electroshock therapy. They founded a social club for gayelles in San Francisco in 1955.

    This will be their second time down the aisle. They married in 2004 when the mayor of San Francisco started issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. The wedding picture of them holding each other was soon seen worldwide. "

    55 years and still going strong :cheers:

    Was the granddaughter a lipstick lesbian or a bull dyke?

    I think that in a weird way gays and lesbians love stories like this (and perhaps even get a sexual thrill off of them). It gives them a chance to say "Look at us! Aren't we tragic and persecuted!"

    I truly don't think that gays want acceptance as that would make things very boring and mundane for them.

    Replace "gays" with "TJames," and I completely agree!

    Nope - I am right.

    I love it when gay men think that if you don't like them then you are a closet case - news flash - that is wrong.

    There are people who truly hate gays (and lesbians - but aren't they the same thing?) that are not gay themselves. Can you not accept that?

    I have no problem with gays, drag queens, etc., (just check out my MySpace page). I have a friend who owns a (mostly) gay club that I go to sometimes and they are always entertaining (you know - who is with whom for the remainder of the night, who has committed suicide, who has died of an overdose, who has a new disease, who has new angst). Sort of like a carnival scene. I always leave there completely entertained.

    I always love it when gays get angry when they are called 'f*ggot' by straights - yet they call each other that on a regular basis. I also love it when gay men think that a straight man is simply a closet case because that man won't even want to get within ten feet of them (continue to delude yourselves, my dears).

    "Love us for who we are" the gays say. "We are normal. We just want to be loved. We are not a harm to your children."

    Hmmmmmmmm, then why do you give each other head in the public streets at Pride (snicker) Parades and dress in crotchless and bottomless leather chaps while getting your bare *ss paddled by a six foot (and very ugly) drag queen? Oh yeah - completely normal activities. And why do the lesbians wear their hair in mullets and walk around trying to BE men? Let's not forget "Dykes on Bikes" (what a sweet name!).

    Any and all gay hate crimes can be traced right back to the main source - the gay individuals themselves and I have NO sympathy when I hear cases like this. NONE at all. I am sure that granddaughter provoked the grandmother to no friggin' end.

    BTW - 'sexual' is the wrong word for what (most) gays feel when they hear of stories like this. "Romantic" is a better term.

    You know - them against the world. They have to stick together (more angst for them to feed on).

    Once again I have to agree with TJames (you're on a roll, dude.)

    I am a gay man... frankly the attitude of "pride" pisses me off. To me, being gay is WHAT I am, not WHO I am... I am neither proud nor shameful of it. It's just the way God made me. Things like drag shows, walking down streets clad in leather, etc. only sends our movement back. We need to show that we are just the same as everyone else, and pride parades do the opposite... I despise that aspect of gay culture... this made college incredibly rough for me as all the other gays on campus were "out and proud" and destroying all the progress I felt I had made.

    That said, your post goes too far TJames. Yeah, it's true that a lot of gays go too far and expect to be given a medal or something for being gay. But it's not all gays, not by a long shot. And we are not the only group in the world to enjoy martyrdom. Lots of people seek it, and I tend to avoid them as friends.

    For the record, I think the grandmother acted inappropriately. I agree with a PARENT's right to corporal punishment of a young child, but 16 is old enough to make your own decisions, and it is never right at ALL to punish a child's sexuality.

    Oh, I know I am (as always). There are many on this board that can't see that (between you and me, I think that they are some straight closet cases on this board. Ssssshhhhhhhhh....).

    You're right - not ALL gay men do this....just most.

    Cheers, juppiter!
