A man attacked a same-sex couple at a bodega in New York’s Soho neighborhood the other day.

Mistake.

For “victims,” he chose former West Point cadets who, it turned out, are the first male same-sex couple to be married at the United States Military Academy Cadet Chapel.

Big mistake.

Daniel Lennox-Choate and Larry Lennox-Choate were shopping at a small grocery store in Manhattan Sunday afternoon when they found themselves the target of anti-gay obscenities, police said.

A man, believed to be in his 40s, had entered the store to buy beer, but then began making homophobic statements at the couple, leading to a verbal dispute, police said.

The man then struck Daniel in the face, causing minor injuries to his mouth. But he didn’t get away clean.

“Aside from one fat lip and a sore punching arm, we are fine,” Larry wrote on Facebook. “The guy who screamed anti-gay obscenities at us in a bodega before sucker-punching Danny? He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is.”

“We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves,” Larry added, “but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.”

Perhaps this “coward loser,” as Larry aptly called him, learned from his mistake.
