Now shame on her, I guess, for failing to clearly identify her post as sarcasm. I mean she’s only a teenager so it could naturally be assumed that she wasn’t making a joke but was, rather, a complete idiot.
Her joke went viral and when jokes go viral on the internet, two things happen. The first is that a lot of people are amused by the joke. The second is that a lot of other people will completely fail to get her joke and reveal themselves to be complete assholes.
The internet, my friends, is the most Democratic place in the world. You want free speech? You can make a joke that reaches thousands of people.
Be warned, however, that some of those people are idiotic. And the idiotic ones are the most likely to say something.
Dear Voters of North Carolina:
You blew it.
We all knew you would. Every state that has tried to constitutionalize discrimination against homosexuals has pulled it off. If California couldn’t defeat Prop 8, what hope did you have?
Now let me be clear, I’m not talking to the people who went to the polls and voted against Amendment One. I’m talking to the 61% of the public that voted to ban not only gay marriage but civil unions and domestic partnerships. You, specifically, blew it. Every one of you.
