[Miranda] Greer said a man approached her after he saw her dancing with a male friend. The man, a patron at the club, thought she was a gay man and, using a slur, told her to leave, she said.
Greer told him she was a woman and a lesbian, she said. The man responded by punching her in the face, Greer said.

The man then used the bottom of a beer bottle to jab her in the left eye about four times before smashing the bottle over the back of her head, she said.
Greer said when she got up, the man charged her, but missed and fell. She said she pinned him down until bouncers grabbed her by the throat and threw her out of the bar.
Greer said she could not find the man for police as people filtered out of the club. Her friend Michael Robinson, 27, said a man who was in the nightclub told him he saw Greer's attacker slip out an employee entrance.
Oh, and lesbians are the threat? I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for Bill O'Reilly to talk about straight violence against queers, but this story is a whole lot closer to reality than this one is. Yeah, she pinned him down, but when someone stabs you with a broken bottle and the bouncers choose to do nothing, you've got to respond somehow. Funny how a woman fighting back is what the bouncers went after, not a man stabbing a woman.
Greer and several others are now planning a protest of the bar. She is partly blind now and may suffer from brain damage.
