Last Thursday was national “coming out” day. This Monday is national “disown your son” day.
GLAAD – along with “everyone” – is not laughing. According to a statement released by the advocacy group:
Approximately 50% of LGBT youth experience some degree of family rejection. There are as many as 100 thousand homeless LGBT youth on our nation’s streets, and it’s estimated that LGBT youth make up as much as 40% of our nation’s homeless youth population. LGBT youth who are completely rejected by their parents are more than 8 times as likely to have attempted suicide.
Instead of feeding into the ever-burning furnace of bullshittery that is Ann Coulter’s ego, GLAAD is urging everyone to participate in Spirit Day on October 19. By wearing purple you can take a stand against demon hellspawn like lady Coulter and other bullies.
