WARNING: Contains some pretty nasty and hateful language.

In March, the Twitter tag #tomyunbornchild became a popular tag for expecting parents to tweet messages to their kids. The vast majority of these tweets were positive, loving, encouraging sentiments. However, a small minority of people used the trending tag to instead send rabid homophobic warnings to their future children. In this video, some actors say the tweets out loud, giving a new and unsettling dimension to hate speech posted on social media.

From Cavatica: "It's easy to dehumanize hate speech online because we've gotten so used to seeing it. We tell ourselves that it's the product of trolls, of random, anonymous strangers.

Except they're not. They're real people. Many of them will be parents. And some of their children will be gay."

People Are Beside Themselves Over This Mom's Facebook Rant About How Her Kid Doesn't Have to Share

Let's get a solid cringeworthy round of slowclaps going for the foolish, destructively ignorant mom who thought it'd be chill to go on the anti-sharing rant. Did she want to get herself publicly tarred and feathered via social media, for the rest of us to see? If that was the goal here; maybe a fleeting moment of fame in the Facebook spotlight....then damn, mission accomplished. 

Angry mom goes on Facebook rant about how her son doesn't have to share with other kids.
