Homosexuals are sick, enthusiastically fascist spreaders of disease who purport to be open-minded. You're all mentally ill, hormonally imbalanced, self-obsessed idiots. It would probably be a benefit to humanity if you all were to die of AIDS, and I say these things as a former supporter of gay rights. This is not hate, it's truth.
