NJ High School Teacher Viki Knox Really, Really Hates LGBT History Month

Each week, Queerty picks one blowhard, hypocrite, airhead, sanctimonious prick or other enemy of all that is queer to be the Douche of the Week. Have a nominee for DOTW? E-mail it to us at [email protected]

Remember Randy Buell, the Florida teacher/NOM centerfold who got temporarily suspended after writing a comment on his Facebook wall about nearly throwing up over the cesspool of sin called marriage equality?

It turns out Mr. Buell has a female counterpart in New Jersey.

Our Douche of the Week is Union High School teacher Viki Knox. She’s currently under investigation by the Union Township School District for calling homosexuality “perverted” and “a cancer” on her Facebook wall. But she differs from Buell in one significant way: instead of one comment, she wrote reams about her disapproval.

Seriously. Pages and pages. And we pulled out the craziest bits. We promise—you’ll want to read this.

It all started when Knox posted an image on her Facebook wall of a school display for LGBT History Month and announced how she’s “pitching a fit” over its existence.

Soon after, commenters started piling on Knox for being anti-gay. In defense, she knocked out response after response—which, of course, only made her sound much worse.

A parent who saw the comments contacted local attorney John Paragano who then wrote the district calling for Knox’s dismissal.

The web-document of her original Facebook comment thread goes on for 36 pages, most of which she spends justifying her point of view. We read through the entire thing so you wouldn’t have to and picked out the craziest bits. (We have however kept her bad grammar, spelling and punctuation, just for LOLs.)

Here’s one on how she loves people who have the sinful homosexual cancer:

Homosexuality is a perverted spirit that has existed from the beginning of creation… I have friends and loved ones who are practicing/living as homosexuals. Yes I love can care about them. We hug and exchange gifts. We have family dinners. But how they live and their actions, behaviors -CHOICES are against the nature and character of God! Do I tell me so? Yes, of course. Do I treat them bad? If course not! Jesus never did that to ANYONE he meant… I do not pretend to know ALL things. Nor do I pretend not to have biases, failings and faults. But I know sin and it breeds like cancer!

Then she wishes 15-year-old girls were fortunate enough to lose their virginity to pimps:

As a 15 yr old girl, how many positive fulfilling sexual encounters has she had with a man to know or THINK she wants to only have sex with another female. Most of her experiences would have been with some male trying to practice his techniques and control on her. I haven’t run across any teenagers/young adults fortunate enough to be introduced to sexual relations by professionals: gigolo and escorts.
