"Two thugs who attacked what they thought were a pair of transvestites picked on the wrong men - when their intended victims turned out to be cage fighters on a night out in fancy dress.
Dean Gardener, 19, and Jason Fender, 22, singled out the two men walking along a street in wigs, short skirts and high heels....Gardener and Fender were left dazed and seen staggering to their feet after their failed attack."
As a note, it's unclear from the article as to how the two cage fighters identify, gender-wise. I would also be curious to know whether the attackers picked out their victims believing them to fit the defenseless-woman mold or because they had clocked the two as being "men dressed as women."
While I am generally opposed to violence, I have to admit there is a certain satisfaction in seeing would-be victims successfully defend themselves from an attack.
