I’m all for equal rights. Everybody walking this planet should have the right to bang, love, marry, and be totally fucked over and forever screwed by whomever they choose. I could give a rat’s ass if Adam loves Eve or Steve or just wants to shove his pet turtle up his ass and sing Katy Perry songs. Go for it. But stop with all the staged activist nonsense. Like this letter buzzing around the Internet supposedly written by a dad who uses tons of quotation marks in a letter to disown his daughter for disowning her son when he came out of the closet. Here’s the rousing conclusion:
So, while we are in the business of disowning our children, I think I’ll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gays put it) grandson to raise, and I don’t have time for heart-less B-word of a daughter. If you find your heart, give us a call. – Dad.
Somehow, his touching bit of Hammurabi code justice made its way to FCKH8, a gay activist group that you can tell by their edgy acronym is in touch with the youth of America. Since the daughter who received the letter obviously didn’t send this letter to the group, you might wonder how they got it. Yeah, you might wonder. Apparently, the gay grandson, Chad (as if a guy named Chad needs to come out of the closet) is a big merch shopper on the FCKH8 website. These groups have been posting more and more of these touching private letters unexpectedly made public, sort of like Teen Mom didn’t expect her sex tape to be seen.
I suppose it’s okay that this hype is manufactured since it’s for a cause that allows tons of people on Yahoo and similar sites to write supportive comments in posts showing how tolerant they are. And it’s okay that this real or fake dad didn’t see the hypocrisy in intolerantly disowning his daughter for being intolerant. As long as I don’t have to see pictures of the guy with the turtle up his ass, I’m good.
