Ann Coulter Calls for ‘Disown Your Son Day’ to Combat ‘Coming Out Day’

| by Michael Allen

On a Twitter post, on Tuesday morning, conservative columnist Ann Coulter wrote: “Last Thursday was national ‘coming out’ day. This Monday is national ‘disown your son’ day.”

DoSomething.org Chief Marketing Officer Naomi Hirabayashi reponded in a tweet: "Out of the dozens of people responding on Twitter, not one seemed to find any humor in Coulter’s joke."

GLAAD spokesperson Aaron McQuade responded in a statement: “LGBT youth who are completely rejected by their parents are more than 8 times as likely to have attempted suicide. Pretty funny, right?”

“But the idea of family rejection is one that does deserve serious attention as a society. Go purple on Friday, not just to show LGBT young people that you support them, but to show Ann Coulter what you stand for.”
