The Vermont Mother of a Gay Son Chain Blogging

Okay; this letter is cool: Gentle Jesus. So go read that.

Now, check out the chain of blog postings that led to my reading it:

You have to link to this now, yourself! A friend of mine did, and he found a wallet with $1000 in it the same day! Someone else didn’t, and he got in a car accident and had his foot amputated! Ohmygod!

    What a great letter. I wonder what someone like Mrs. du Toit would think of it – what if one of her kids turns out to be gay?

    Between Kim’s badgering of him to “be a _real_ man”, Mom’s inarticulate menopausal ravings, and the profusion of guns in the house, he’d probably shoot himself at a relatively young age.

    Wasn’t she the one who made a big deal about how she’d had a gay brother who died of AIDS, so don’t you dare question her decision to become a raging homophobe, or something?

  3. Adam Says:

    Yes, her brother (and his long-time partner) died of AIDS. Among other things, she’s said that she’s sure that her dead brother would be against the state allowing him to marry his partner. I think her grief and anguish has made her one of the sickest anti-gay crusaders I’ve read on the web. Which is sad, in the final analysis.
