I hate having to write posts like this, but apparently I need to do it. A Projector left this comment on the guest post by Samir Luther on HRC's update to the Corporate Equality Index.
I want heads on a platter.
I want to see one dead HRC staffers head cut off, and put on a pike outside Rhode Island Avenue.
I want to see effigies of HRC staff burning bright in every town in America.
What I want most of all, is to outlive you all at the HRC, and piss on your grave.
PS, You should be glad I wrote this when I was in a good mood.
PPS, Can you guess if I am trans or not?
Advocating violence is never acceptable. I realize that many of us are angry with HRC over past issues, but this is completely out of line. Thankfully, most Projectors have the tact to express their anger constructively without resorting to this level. Bilerico Project is a spot for open discourse, not death threats.
The comment has been deleted, of course, but I want to specifically point something out... I don't give a shit how angry any of us are, commenting on a guest post and advocating killing them is extremely disturbing and disgusting - especially when the guest's work address is listed and the their headshot is on the post. While we keep Projector's information private, this would be a case where I would gladly hand over any identifying information to the authorities.
