22 Sassiest Responses To Homophobe Comparing Being Straight During Pride Month To Being A Jew In Nazi Germany

They say that the best way to respond to hate is with love. True, but in these days of anonymous internet trolling there might be an even better option: sarcastic mockery. The latest trend among alt-right types these days is to present themselves as some kind of victim; where is my straight pride parade? Why don’t I get a white history month? What about an international men’s day? Completely missing the point that our entire social structure is skewed heavily in favor of the straight, white male. Do you really need those things to feel accepted and valued, snowflake?

The latest example of this pathetically insecure victimhood came from this Twitter user. Surely we are all being trolled? If so, plenty of people took the bait and the tweet was shared and commented on thousands of times. Eventually, it found its way to Reddit whereafter it was shared on the famous ‘Murdered By Words’ page.

Ironically enough, the very best takedown to this abhorrent tweet was by a Reddit user named GaydolphShitler. Yes, you read that right. Ol’ Gaydolph was having none of it and set to work with the sarcasm-meter set to 11.

The satire-laden response sparked an entire ‘glitzkrieg’ of derision, full to bursting with glorious punnery and homo-nazi wordplay, as well as some more heartfelt and eye-opening reactions. What do you think? Is this a good way to respond to hate/trolling? Scroll down to read the rest of the reactions below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

It always surprises me when straight people get their undies in a twist over something that's got nothing to do with them. Gay Pride month isn't hurting you. I think most are just offended because they think that to tolerate it means they aren't being a good Christian. Well you need to read your Bible better, Honey. Especially concentrate on the part of love thy neighbor, judge ye not lest ye be judged and let he who is without sin cast the first stone. If the only thing you do with the Bible is use it to find fault in others..I think you got more things to worry about in your relationship with God than a bunch of gay people prancing around in rainbow attire and sparkles for a month.

I totally agree. Like, seriously, since when did movements trying to promote the rights of homosexuals, people of race, and women come all the way back to focus on straight, white males.

What was it like coming out straight? Did your parents disown you? I bet you were told to keep quiet at Christmas.... did your gay friends joke/not joke about just needing to find a woman to have sex with? Pride isn't about being better than everyone else, it is about normalizing a place in society. Getting over the assumptions about who/how a person sleeps with another person... it's almost funny how uncomfortable breaking those assumptions are, and how much some folks lash out at it.

A similar situation, yesterday I got into an argument with some doofus on Reddit who thinks men are being oppressed just because women actually have a few rights.

The thing I hate is that there are about 10 people on the entire planet who think this backwards, and they end up getting the most attention. Why can’t us sane people who can argue like human beings get a spotlight? Or maybe society could, oh I don’t know, collectively stop being stupid?
