Another time two guys came up behind me. One grabbed my arms from behind and held me while the other guy punched me in the stomach. Not sure why they did it, since I'd never gotten into any arguments with either of them.
Another time my friend and I got taken out into a field by 8 guys because one of them wanted to beat me up. They told me they'd hurt my friend if I fought back so I just stood there and let him punch/kick me until he got tired. I had no idea who he was and had never seen him before.
I was threatened tons of times, and been in lots of verbal disagreements, but those were the only physical fights I've ever been in. In all of them, I was either ambushed or outnumbered. I've never been in a fair fight, or in a fight with a person I knew and that I had some kind of conflict with. It was always people I didn't know who attacked me for no reason. (Though I suspect it's because they thought I was queer, since that's usually what people called me.)
