Like #ToMyUnbornChild before it, another Twitter trending topic has solicited disgusting and violent anti-gay sentiment from homophobic users. If Child Protective Services didn't start following these child-related Twitter hashtags before, perhaps it will start after a flood of shocking entries to the #ThingsIGottaTeachMySon thread saturated the social network. Some of the most vile responses to the trending topic, after the jump.
#ThingsIGottaTeachMySon reached nearly 60,000 mentions on Wednesday, with most responses inviting the "awws" out of our emotionally bankrupt hearts. But as with #ToMyUnbornChild, hundreds of Twitter users took the topic as yet another opportunity to threaten to kill their young sons if they happen to be gay and to spread the promotion of violence against gay men.
