North Carolina – Mecklenberg County Commissioner Bill James, who sent a letter to a collegue last week describing homosexuals as “sexual predators,” isn’t happy about all the emails the country has sent him. He’s sent out another letter saying gays prey on young men at YMCA’s.
Tipped by PRIDEinUtah reader Trenton C.
Read the full letter below, but notice phrases like ”Congress needs to develop rules to protect young heterosexual military from predatory behavior” and “YMCA’s have to have ‘Red Phones’ to protect young hetero men from teh gay!”
Who the hell does this man think he is and what alternate reality is he from? This kind of blatent bigotry and lack of intelligence in a politician is exactly what causes thousands of young LGBT kids to be bullied and harrassed every year, resulting in many of their suicides.
Of course, in typical bigot-conservative style, he provides zero proof of any of his claims. He tries, inadequately, to persuade using a snip from a letter he received from a soldier, but of course with no name or any proof he didn’t just write it himself. Sad… so sad.
I say keep contacting him!
