100 Shocking Tweets From People Who Say They Will Murder Their Gay Child

Here are 100+ real tweets from real people who used Twitter to tell the world that if their child turned out to be gay or lesbian they would murder them. Yes, there actually is a hashtag, #ToMyUnbornChild, which, among other things, has been encouraging people to tweet they will kill their children if they are gay. Those who include the #ToMyUnbornChild Hashtag also are tweeting loving, warm thoughts, like, “I can’t wait to meet you<3,” and, “If you are gay, I will love you unconditionally. Same if you are straight or anywhere in between,” but also despicable ones, like these below.

It takes a great deal to shock even us, and this may be one of the most-shocking and disgusting stories we’ve ever done.

Fortunately, the #ToMyUnbornChild homophobia seems to have died down over the past few day or two.

We’d like to thank the owner of the Twitter account @homophobes who put together this Storify list of tweets. They write:

On March 12, 2012, the hashtag #ToMyUnbornChild became a trending topic. People used this hashtag to “tweet to” their future child. Here are 100 real tweets from real people — all within 24 hours — saying they would murder their child if he or she was gay.

Caution: reading these tweets can be extremely upsetting.

i'm not surprised that almost all of these an uses are men. for me, i'd take preemptive action before they had a chance to mess with me or i'd leave there, press charges for death threats, and watch their ugly as ses rot in jail

These parents cannot communicate death threats this way! Action NEEDS to be taken. They should have custody removed and then spay and neuter these animals. What is WRONG when parents can get away with communicating death threats to babies? They are OBVIOUSLY unstable and should not be allowed to keep these babies once they're born. Not everyone is fit to be a parent. If parents threaten your life, that is illegal. Demand action against these people.

what if they're democrat instead of republican, or brown eyed instead of blue. What if they say something you don't like? Just KILL THEM?

Because babies are sacred – until they're born.

yes it is pure hate, This movie was made to generate a response, just like the twitter account @ToMyUnbornChild was created to get some dumb suckers to tweet something stupid. The scum that tweets this stuff are predominantly all dumb kids / collage kids that sip the kool-aid
