Two weeks ago I posted about a trans teen in Kansas City, Landon Patterson, who was elected to be homecoming queen at Oak Park High School: The difference support makes.
Soon after her election, Landon started receiving hate from the Twitterverse.
Everything was such a fairy tale and the world stopped for a minute. People, like, hate me. And now there is a group that hates me, going out of their way to be mean to me.
We might have guessed. The folks at Westboro Baptist have decided they need to picket OPHS...and that was on for today. They spout something about landmarks...which I completely don't get.
Do these people not work? How do they go to these protests all over the place? I’ll be working, but Landon knows I’ll be there with her.
