10 Fierce Women Respond To Ann Coulter’s Homophobic Tweet

“Darlin’, even your hate is out of date.”


The world of Twitter lost it yesterday when Ann Coulter tweeted that she thinks Hurricane Harvey is more likely to be “God’s punishment” for electing a lesbian mayor, than a result of climate-change (Sadly, we’re not making this up). Annise Parker was Houston’s mayor from 2010 to 2016, and just so happens to be a lesbian. In fact, she was one of the first openly LGBTQ mayors to serve in a major US city.

Though we wish that lesbians had the power to change the weather (and if we did—it would be rainbows all day, everyday), Hurricane Harvey IS the cause of climate change.

Coulter is no stranger to making homophobic claims that gays cause all sorts of travesty. She’s been quoted saying, “Gay marriage is not a civil right.” The right-wing media pundit has even used her Twitter to mock National Coming Out Day by creating “Disown Your Son Day” the following Monday, alluding that parents of LGBTQ children should disown them.

Though these tweets are most likely made in a weak attempt to garner media attention and fame—they have lasting and negative impacts on our community. Young members of our community may see these tweets and feel as if they aren’t accepted and loved in the world.

Which is exactly why we want to highlight 10 fierce responses to Coulter’s homophobia, to show that we stick together, especially against bullies.

Evan Rachel Wood: How are you tweeting, though?

The same way Obama caused Katrina (before he took office). ~side eye emoji~

Rosie recycling Hillary Clinton’s burn.

Lesbian magic is real.

Can’t yet summon disaster relief: National lesbian meeting soon to learn this magic.

Don’t poke the lions den…

Even God sent a gay rainbow!

Do some research.

Put your spare time to work!

Let the meme do the talking.

Enough said.

As of Wednesday morning, Harvey had left at least 30 people dead in Texas. The storm dumped more than 24 inches of rain on Houston in a 24-hour period this weekend, causing unprecedented, catastrophic flooding across the city. The storm is currently making its second landfall and damages from the hurricane are expected to continue.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it expected more than 450,000 people in Texas to register as disaster victims and 30,000 to be in shelters. Financial donations are always preferred instead of physical donation of items. Often during natural disasters, the second disaster comes when they have wear-houses full of unusable donations. With financial assistance, disaster relief organizations can bring victims exactly what they need, when it’s needed.

How you can help today: 

Donate to the Trans Disaster Relief Fund

Note from the group: “TFA is creating this fund because trans, intersex, and genderqueer individuals have historically experienced significant difficulties in natural disaster situations. This fund will be used to help this historically underserved community recover from this catastrophic event. If needed, the fund will also help with burial costs for community members who’ve lost their lives in this historic disaster.”
