Here are some of the tweets:
Even if this is a joke, I'm left speechless.
Hope dime21 reads this. He insists that no one hates gay people.
I dont think anyone would be sick enough to actually do this.. I hope. I mean- your own child? You'd love him/her no matter what
That's the thing. Not all people do. Some people love their children conditioned on some arbitrary measurement of what they think they should be.
Sad, but true. As crazy as your own family may seem at times, I'm unbelievably thankful my parents never would pull crap like this.
Does he advance this forum as much as you/your comment? I ask non-rhetorically.
I guess you'd have to ask everyone else. Why don't you take a poll?
Because I'd rather follow the rules and properly call you out, Lee. Enjoy your rhetorical non-poll.
Odd that that's the first consideration that these cretins had.
Some seriously awful people on the planet.
Ah, but if there were a test to test for teh ghey in utero, would they abort?
Call me out for what? If you have a problem with me, PM me and let's talk. Don't crap on people's threads to do it. My post was OT and quite relevant, given recent discussions in this forum. If you don't like it, don't read it. There are mods here to police the forums. You can relax. They're quite capable of doing their jobs.
Oh, I think they would without a doubt.
Filicide is actually tragically common in the United States. It's difficult to get good statistics, but most studies seem to indicate that parents are responsible for just more than half of the cases of child homicide in the US and Canada, and that the rate is fairly consistent across genders. This would of course include direct acts of murder, as well as negligence so gross that it was tried as murder.
I don't think any of these people are remotely serious. Instead of "I seriously hate gays enough to kill one, even my own child" this is more "hey let me gay bash on twitter a little and try to post something someone might find semi-humorous because I'm an attention whore. This tweet will also offend many people so I'll be talked about more! "
Attention whores I hate them so much, granted I do my fair amount of trolling but that's out of boredom not some deep-seated need for everyone to give me attention.
Then again I might just be underestimating the hatefulness of society.
What the **** is this? Is this for real?
Gotta be a joke.
And, the Total Dickwad theory of human interaction on the Internet continues to hold credence.
You should threaten to murder your own child should he become an attention whore, so that we will know how serious you are about it.
This is...... disgusting parents are meant to love you no matter what.
Jeez. Are they really for real? That's just crazy.
It just shows how sick some people can be.
I knew a kid in my department at college who went home for Christmas and his dad locked the door and wouldn't let him in. A few months after he stuck a gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger. You'd have never known from talking with him either, was a really outwardly happy guy.
I'd like to also add that these to be parents are probably all Christian. This is about the equivalent of an honor killing in Islam.
After the initial revulsion died down a little, I started noticing the high amount of tweets using "your" instead of "you're."
One wonders how strongly intolerance is negatively associated with intelligence.
Attention whore exceptionalism.
I think most parents would love their gay kids. Yet, some might kill them...
