#tomyunbornchild – your future parents are bigots.

Christina here…

Sorry I’ve been slacking off on The Daily Twitter recently – my life got busy and I haven’t had much time to blog. Shameful, I know.

Still, I’ve been plugging away on Twitter between clients at work, baiting bigots left, right and center.

A few days ago, the hashtag #tomyunbornchild trended. Most of the comments revealed positive messages of love, affirmation, and acceptance.

Most.

Thousands did not. Instead, people tweeted <140 character filth. Here is a nice selection of a few of them. Some people have deleted their tweets, so I will post my re-tweet rather than their original if they have.:

 

You win the EVIL PARENT award. #athEIst RT @bridgethaley_: #ToMyUnbornChild if ur an athiest, I PROMISE i will beat you with a garden hoe

Now, I realize some of these are jokes… I guess. But, that one would even joke about murdering/disowning one’s offspring if they are gay, atheist, or ugly  surely betrays an ugly personality.

I don’t have children, but the only reason I would  even potentially desire the death of my own child would be maybe if my own child killed another human being intentionally.

What does it say about these people that they think another human being is better off dead/abandoned than gay/atheist – even that their own potential child is better off dead? I honestly don’t understand how someone can be so filled with hatred.  I say that, knowing that gay people have been killed, and knowing that gay/atheist children have been disowned by their families. I just don’t understand.

Family values my ass.

 

Update:

Apparently some people don’t like it when I re-tweet their hateful tweets to a wider audience:

Crommunist tried to talk some sense into him:

“Their” place, JDa. What kind of sick individual thinks women should be put in their place, and that they should be put in their place by threatening to shoot them?

Oh right, I forgot. You’re Bible thingy pretty much says that word for word, but with stones instead of bullets.

    AAAAAAAAAGH!!! Christina, how do you do it? How do you keep going back, time after time, reading the crap these cretins spew, and responding? I read this stuff and I want to weep for the future of humanity. I know I should be out there being vocal, trying to change minds, trying to help get even a little bit of enlightenment out there into the public sphere, but instead I end up just wanting to curl up into a little ball thanks to all the stupid and ugly.

    How do you keep standing up and pushing back?

      I don’t know. It must be some kind of addiction or something. I’m also a little bit of a masochist. My husband and I used to go to a different church every Sunday, until we got burned out.

      I don’t think I can change the minds of the actual tweeters by doing this – they probably won’t be shamed into thinking – but the people around them observing will hopefully see what kind of vile behavior occurs and take some time to examine why it occurs and how to prevent it in themselves and in their friends/future children/etc.

        Christina: “My husband and I used to go to a different church every Sunday, until we got burned out.”

        Any chance of a post about this?

    And they call us immoral.

    It will be a lovely day when one of these moron’s potential bosses Google them and find these tweets. :-/

    • http://www.freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd Christina

      …exactly. That’s another reason I post this stuff here and re-tweet it. You can delete a tweet on your own feed, but not on mine.

    I guess he didn’t apologize to you. He apologized to me. Kid’s an asshole.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ziztur Christina

      Actually, he did. He said, “my apologies”.

      … I think in a few days I’ll put the whole conversation up.

      • http://freethoughtblogs.com/crommunist Crommunist

        Good that he (kind of) apologized. He’s still an asshole though.

        • Aliasalpha

          He used “there” instead of “their”, that alone is enough to declare someone an arsehole

    Even if it’s a joke, some queer atheist kid on the internet is not going to know that. Words have power that intent cannot erase.

    Isn’t it funny how many straight, Christian-folk would kill their children if they were not straight or not Christian? How many gay parents would kill their kids if the kids didn’t grow up to be gay as well? How many atheists would kill their children, or even disown them, simply if they converted to a religion? How many would even threaten this?

    I just said this on a different thread:

    I’m beginning to think that Christian Intelligence is up there with Christian Love and Sophisticated Theology, on the great list of religious oxymorons.

    I should’ve remembered to include “Christian morality” as well.

    Trying for a second to comprehend these people – it’s as if they regard apostasy or coming out as gay as being a crime of the same magnitude as murdering a close relative, because that is the only circumstance in which I could possibly justify myself turning so vehemently on one of my own.

    • mywall

      Comprehending these people isn’t as hard as you make out. Have you ever heard of a little thing called stupidity?? Well, they got it!

    Most of these people are big-mouthed small-minded chickenshits. The fact that a lot of them delete their tweets also demonstrates that they are cowards- they won’t stand behind what they type. They are a waste of internet bandwidth and the earth’s natural resources.

    you better be a catholic or Christian

    Made me chuckle :D
