Putting a face on the homophobic bile of #tomyunbornchild

Putting a face on the homophobic bile of #tomyunbornchild

Who would have thought the Middle American, saccharine sweet hashtag #tomyunbornchild would be co-opted into a trending hate topic. But that’s kind of the ironic danger of the Internet. At its core, the online world is an adult playground. And sometimes adults act like terrible mean spirited monsters bent on hurting strangers because, oh I don’t know, someone didn’t love them enough when they were young, they can’t score a date, or they’re just afraid of anything different. Whatever the senseless and irrational motivation to spread hate, there are still mature people around town, and online, trying to curb ill-intentioned behavior. A virtual neighborhood watch, as it were.
