Gentle reader, did you know that you are participating in a hate crime just by reading this!?
Perhaps the government should issue each of us a hate crime whistle. Whenever we see or hear something that offends, just blow, blow, blow on that whistle and shout “Hate crime! Stop hate criming me!” Besides being useful for when you’re sitting at home, surfing the Internet on your own, where blowing the hate crime whistle could give private reassurance of one’s own moral righteousness, it could come in handy in public places, too. Like movie theatres, and especially libraries, where I understand there exist many offensive ideas.
