When Sophia, the daughter of two gay dads, decided to invite her classmate, Tommy, to her tie dye birthday party, it seemed like an innocuous enough gesture. But Tommy's mom, Beth, was NOT PUMPED. She sent the invitation back and really gave those dads a piece of her mind.
The fathers say they initially received a response from Beth after attempting to invite her son Tommy to their daughter's tie dye birthday party. They received the invitation back, and instead of simply saying Tommy wouldn't be there, Beth went on an anti-gay tirade.
"Tommy will NOT be attending," wrote Beth on the invitation. "I do not believe in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your 'lifestyle'. I'm sorry Sophia has to grow up this way. If you have an issue or need to speak to me: [phone number]."
MAN, THAT LADY REALLY DOESN'T LIKE TIE-DYEING.
The dads decided to take Beth's shitty note public:
After receiving the cruel response, the two dads decided to send the invitation to local radio station K98.3. The station posted the invitation on their Facebook page, and since then, people everywhere have expressed outrage. Beth's phone number was initially blurred from the picture, but the radio station removed the blur and said, "Beth gave us permission to post her phone number and said anyone who has a problem with what she wrote can call her, too!"
Seriously, who are these people that just waste their own time on purpose? I wish I had the kind of leisure time it takes to be a homophobe. HEY, LADY. APPARENTLY YOU'RE BORED. HOW ABOUT READ A BOOK. GET A ROKU. GO OUTSIDE. DO A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT. WRITE A NOVEL. RUN FOR OFFICE (wait, please don't). ARE YOU LITERALLY JUST TRYING TO KILL TIME WHILE YOU WAIT POINTLESSLY FOR DEATH!?!?!?!?
Of course, this note could be a fake just to get us all frothing and get this radio station's name in the news. It kind of seems fake. What modern homophobe actually puts "lifestyle" in scare-quotes? Too on-the-nose, man. Also, who names their kid "Tommy" in the 21st century? Shoulda gone with "Bragen," imo.
But, fake or not, "Beth"'s homophobic mindset is real and common and gross. So froth away.
