"Going to work in the subway at the 6 in the morning there were four children who, upon entering, decided to hesitate. At first I was silent and I changed my place, when I followed one and I said "What's wrong with you?" And he has risen to tell me to tell him from man to man that same, I have decided to ignore him. Then he said "Sure, you're not a man, you're a fagot" to which I replied that what he was is stupid. They have continued threatening me until I have called the emergency intercom, they have answered me but they have not given me a solution. When I got off at my stop, about to take the stairs from behind, they knocked me down and kicked me. At first I defended myself and two ended up on the floor, but they were 4 against me so I shrugged to wait for it to happen. The security guards arrived soon and I touch my face and I find it full of blood. Finally the Mossos and the ambulance come. From the 6 in the morning until now going around. At least now I know what it feels like to get points. But of course, I saw blurry"
