South Fulton County police are searching for a man they say assaulted another man with a baseball bat for making a pass at him.

It all started when Adrian Wilson spotted a man fixing a flat tire outside his apartment on Cascade Road in southwest Atlanta. Wilson said the man asked him for help fixing his tire.

The man, who police later identified as Denzale Johnson, was wearing his pants sagging low. Wilson said Johnson asked him how much money he wanted for the help.

Wilson probably took that as a sign that Johnson was trade -- gay slang for a young heterosexual man who is willing to trade sex for cash or other favors.

“I said you already gave me a free peep show, so I’ll go ahead and do it for free,” Wilson told Channel 2 Action News.

Wilson said Johnson didn't take kindly to the sexually suggestive comment.

“He asked me then if I’m straight, and I said, ‘No, I’m gay,’” said Wilson. “He went off telling me, he wasn’t gay he was straight, he hated gay people.”

Wilson said he turned to leave and Johnson struck him from behind with a baseball bat.

“He said he hates gay people. I’m gay, he hit me with a bat so apparently he hated something about me,’ said Wilson, who received 13 stitches to close a head wound.

South Fulton police are looking for Johnson who is wanted on aggravated assault charges.

Georgia is one of 5 states that has no hate crime legislation on the books. So Johnson won't be charged with a hate crime.

But critics of hate crime legislation say the law is used unfairly in cases where victims instigate violence.

Provocative clothing is never an excuse to sexually harass women. So why is it okay for a gay man to hit on another man just because his pants is sagging?

Violence is never acceptable, but neither is sexual harassment whether the one doing the harassing is a man or a woman.

I know many gay men who were beaten for coming on to straight men. I don't agree with violence. But at the same time, women feel helpless when they are constantly hit on by men.

Men who are hit on by other men feel their manhood is threatened -- and men who feel threatened will often attack.

The gays are quick to yell hate crime, when in fact 2 wrongs don't make a right.

No one has the right to make unwanted sexual advances. Tolerance is a 2-way street.

  • Di Ana

    I got the fact that he shouldn't have been hit with a baseball bat AND at the same time you can't be out here talking suggestively to folks cause you don't know who is crazy.

    I was very sad when I heard this actor died of AIDS soon after the movie wrapped. He was so funny.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I agree Sandra, tolerance is a 2 way street, but we're adults. I don't say this cuz I'm same sex oriented. There have been a couple times I may have read a guy wrong and got the "oh no man, I'm not gay." Apologies bro, no disrespect. It stopped there. We have to be more careful than your traditional man approaching a woman - I get it. My point is (adults) when did we get to this point of full grown men/women fighting over everything someone SAYS to us? Being touched is an entirely different thing. Now that's one side of it.

    Denzale done caught a case all over words. Now in his defense, what grown man tells another man "you already gave me a peep show?" Huh? Were they having small talk during the tire change and he thought DJ would just smile and play along? He was way outta line for what he said to the guy. But I'd be a hypocrite or at least contradict myself if I didn't admit how I'm always saying you can't say what you want to people and think it's ok. Believe it or not, I'm siding with Batman Denzale on this story. Yep, I'm still same sex oriented.

    We have a right to respond when sm1 says something to us. I guess this was DJ's response to the peep show comment. SN: What if women snapped the hell off on every guy that says crazy stuff to her? We'd never get anything done. IJS.

    It wasn't a hate crime though. It was a guy who felt he was violated. He didn't go out looking to beat up a gay guy. Please don't abuse laws in place (not in GA) that protect your rights. If the law were in GA, this would be a case of abusing the law when there was no hate involved. He got hit with that bat for making that comment, not cuz he like guys. Would he have said it was a hate crime had Denzale been calling him a N word?

    I will assume, based on your name, that you are a man. Men are not built to be diplomatic. That's why world wars are started by men. They fight when they feel threatened. That's the law of nature. On the other hand, some gays don't take no for an answer. They are especially opposed to you saying, "I'm not gay," because they assume ALL men are gay.

    And she need to be next with that bat for that lol

    It's probably his middle name though.

    When dude gets caught, where's he going? to jail to live with men, where he won't be able to escape the sex that's going on around him and depending on the amount of time he has to serve, the probably of him fucking another dude Is pretty high. The same with racist, you hate black people, so you kill them, then you go to jail to live with them. Makes no sense

    Same as the white girl that claim she got beat up by 3 ""African American" people, everybody just wants to be discriminated against.#$hit$real #can'tmakethis$hitup.

  • Truth

    I saw this story. In all honesty this man was out of line. He had no business sexually harassing that young boy. I feel there s more to the story, but straight guys hate for another man to make a pass at them. Violence is not the answer, but this fella will think twice before he tries this with another man

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Last I heard it's a hip hop fashion statement that symbolizes strength and power and individualism. Some isn like that.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "Violence is not the answer, but this fella will think twice before he tries this with another man"
    ^^^^^^^
    No he won't. Trust me. I had gay friends who got their azzes beat regularly for hitting on straight men. Their wounds healed and they went right back out and hit on other straight men. The cycle repeats itself.

  • Everclear1972

    Sweet baby Jesus.

    Kermit had a hysterectomy on his rectum.

    But that ish was a statement when I was going to high school and I graduated 25 DAMN years ago.

    Fads come and go but this one has never gone out of style.

    Mr. Wilson sounds like a thirsty queen. Sometimes, thirsty people get more than they can drink and they drown.

  • Guess Who

    For some reason, I think the gay dude kinda deserved it and this is a rare occassion when Sandra Rose was spot on with her commentary. Why is it ok or funny for a man to harrass another man but not ok or funny when a man harrasses a woman?

  • TeeTee

    because harassment becomes rape everyday by the men who were just being friendly

  • Queen B

    I dont agree with violence but he shudnt have made that comment to him....that was very offensive everybody n atl is not gay so i wish all these homôs from other cities wud stop coming here assuming that all men are gay or on the dwn low....some of them will beat yo ass hence, this situation...ijs

  • the guest

    He was hit with a baseball bat for being a slimy uncouth pig. Gay or not he's got some nerve making distasteful remarks to strangers. No one man or woman likes being disrespected. Some people still believe in old fashioned butt kicking for disrespect.

  • Guess Who

    Soooooo...you're saying that's why it's ok? Because harrassment becomes rape everyday by the men who were just being friendly? Makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE. Please clarify as to why that makes it ok or funny for a man to harrass another man but not ok or funny when a man harrasses a woman. ????????? da faq? lol

  • Lolalao

    What's the name of the movie?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "Low Down Dirty Shame" starring Damon Wayans and Jada Pinkett.

  • ThunderPuss404

    Sandra, you need to stop. First off, let's get realistic. Gay men make harmless comments about and to straight men all the time and usually, baseball bats aren't deployed in response. Most straight men who are comfortable in their sexuality don't have to react violently to such a scenario; so this makes me wonder, what made Denzale get that bat--and where the hell did he get it from? The fact that he may be riding around town with a bat in his trunk suggests he has anger control issues. Did you consider any of that? Probably not, because that doesn't fit your narrative of gay men as AIDS carrying child molesters who troll helpless thug black boys and then go on to predominate the music biz and wear skirts. Girl, whatever.

    Second, in modern "gay lingo", "trade' implies any masculine, presumably straight man who will get down with another man--and cash could have nothing at all to do with the arrangement.

    Third off, I don't know what kind of gay people you hang with because I can assure you that if anybody hits me with a bat, I'm gonna break him off something proper and it won't be no dick either. No shade, but honey, for all the many, many years you've been bulldaggin', I'm sure you know that not all gay men are helpless, easy targets for violence.

  • http://suzar.com/BOTW/BOTW-ch1d-pages7-8.html Staci Elle

    aww really? sorry to hear!

  • ThunderPuss404

    Honey if I were you, I'd be trying to find a more modern dress to take a picture in, instead of talking ish while looking like a SOLID GOLD dancer from 1976.

  • Tiffany Miller

    Now I am out here alone at night with no way to get away from you.. and you make a pass? And he just brandished a bat out of nowhere... you were too turned on to realize that he had gotten up and got a BAT. I can't imagine him saying all of that Daytime Drama SCRIPT!!! And he conveniently used the word HATE... to make it a HATE... CRIME.. LMBO!!!!!

  • Tiffany Miller

    If this happened to me as a woman, I would have pepper sprayed and tased him.

  • ThunderPuss404

    Sandra, honey, I've been a reader ever since 2007. Still Love U, but sweetie, you know damn well that a baseball bat wasn't necessary. Denzale could have just said, "Man, I'm not gay, don't disrespect me like that".

  • ThunderPuss404

    Sandra, don't you think the appropriate thing was for Denzale to merely say, "Man, I'm not gay, don't disrespect me like that?", instead of deploying a bat? Now his ass is going to jail. And let me assure you: As a gay man and former Marine with 2 tours of Iraq under my belt, had he hit me with a baseball bat, I'd have broke him off something proper and I don't mean no dick either. I wouldn't have gave a damn what I just said to him; that bat would have been up his ass or dangling around his neck.

    Sandra, sweetie, you've been bulldaggin' for many, many, many years, and in all your travels, I'm sure you've noticed that not all gay men are weak and helpless targets for violence. Girl stop.

  • ThunderPuss404

    Stop lying.

  • ThunderPuss404

    As a gay man (and former Marine) who did two tours in Iraq, and grew up in Bankhead, regardless of who said what to him, had he brandished a bat at me, I would have broke him off proper and I don't mean in the bed.

  • ThunderPuss404

    Sandra, sweetie, not every gay man is helpless and waiting to be a target of violence; honey, you've been bulldaggin for years and years and years and you know that there are lots of gay men who woulda beat the brakes off that boy for hitting them with a bat.

  • Queen B

    There's always a hating jealous bîtch sumwhere n my corner....carry on honey ????

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I never said all gay men are weak and helpless. But gay men should respect the rights of straight men not to be sexually harassed. Thanks for your viewpoint.

  • ThunderPuss404

    LOL girl there ain't a damn thang for anybody to be jealous about judging by that tired dress you are so proudly rocking which looks like something Bea Arthur gave to GOODWILL before she died. LOL.

    Girl, nobody has to be jealous of you to point out how tired you are. No shade. I just gave you free fashion advice; thank me later honey.

    Maybe you need to make a gay friend or two instead of bashing "homos". I promise you, a gay fiend would never let you leave the house dressed like THAT wearing a weave somebody gave you.

  • ThunderPuss404

    More like you would have been on GOOGLE and Priceline looking for coupons to take him to Motel 6. Keep it real honey.

    I def dont have the patience to read ur novel....but by looking at this its fair to assume ur a homô. No need to b offended just mk sure u dont hit on a straight man if u dont want ur shît bashed in....carry on ??

    Who is his mother. I would love to thank her for the wonderful job she did raising that bat-shit crazy punk.
    The guys n my Apartment complex are wondering why was he running (with the bat still n his hands) from the man he had just hit n the head with the bat.
