i actually received this email on may 2nd, early morning, at about 2 am.

hi. i belong to an email list of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered fold at uc santa cruz. we all recently got an email from you pretending to be from mathew shepard's mother that impelled many of us to mistakenly visit your terrible website. that a person could spend so much time creating a website just to hate and oppress any group is sick. you, whoever you are, are a disgrace to your country and your fellow human beings. i realize that i am making this statement without knowing you, but all i know are your actions. and these actions are contemptuous, two-faced, cowardly attempts at changing a community that has nothing to do with you. by sending out this email, you have merely strengthened our resolve to better the world for all and to end such unnecessary and hateful messages as espoused by you. feel free to email me back if you have anything worthwhile and constructive to say in response. i await your silence.

opinions are like armpits, we all have a couple. except, i must reply to the comment about how he assumes* that i am trying to change "a community that has nothing to do with me". first, i'm not trying to change anything, i'm ridiculing it for others to reject it. second, it has something to do with me - after all, i am reacting to a) ridiculous gays i see doing ridiculous things, b) the life i have lived in the gay community, and 3) the (lack of) gay lives i hear about in the media or read about on the internet.

"by sending this email, you have merely strengthened our resolve to better the world for all and to end such unnecessary and hateful messages as espoused by you," he writes, as if to say, "nyah, nyah...you meant to bash us, but we're stronger for it". and about unnecessary websites, well, gay.com is as unnecessary as anti-gay.com. all your pro-gay websites which spout "tolerance" and lovey-dovey notions of gay utopias, they are just as unnecessary as anti-gay.com. and on all your gay websites, hatred may not be as apparent as it is on this website, but the spite gays harbor for anyone who is not in their clique is there for the analyzing!

* when you assume, you make an ass out of u and me
