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."

Do as I say, not as I do kids.

People went on Twitter to sarcastically share all of the reasons they wanted kids. The theme centered around all those incredibly annoying household things your parents forced you to do. You know, all of those inconsequential childhood chores that made ZERO sense at all.

Just remember not to question anything, or you're grounded.
