Ward’s letter ‘eerily reminiscent’ of SATIRE

By [email protected]

In response to people becoming hysterical over Samantha Ward’s letter; wow. When I read it, I was chuckling the whole time. Not because I was giddy with the prospect of treating a group of people like 2nd class citizens, but because it was funny. It was satire and hyperbole, used to show the absurdity of rampant homophobia. If someone wrote something similar and was serious, I’d be shocked and angry too. This was not the case, however. I, personally, found the satire to be quite obvious. Thanks for the good read, Samantha.
