While we get hate mail all the time, this one came in yesterday while I was at the Pride parade. It seemed apropos to overlook the tone, publish it today and ask everyone to answer the larger question it asks: Why do you celebrate pride month?
From: Sam Riddick
Message: If you are so normal, why do you people have Gay Pride Month? I'm a heterosexual and I feel neither proud or ashamed. I certainly don't need a month dedicated to make me feel good about it. The fact you need your bumper stickers, parades, and entire months shows that you really need some reinforcement that you aren't just a bunch of crazy people. Until that crap stops, I will treat all gays like they are mentally diseased.
In case you're interested, Mr. Genius also sent another e-mail yesterday about Chris Crocker that came in before the one above. I put it after the jump.
So how do you handle people like this in your personal lives?
