They could’ve taken offense and it could’ve ruined their Christmas. But a gay couple who became victim of a homophobic attack was all grace as they countered the foul assault in a very funny manner.
On Christmas, the couple discovered the word ‘faggots’ had been carved on their front door, just below their Christmas wreath. Instead of going ballistic and complaining of their rights being violated, the two decided to make fun of the incident.
The pair got a sand paper to scratch off the offensive words and covered it with paper containing their humorous response and utter disappointment over the crime. However, it is not for the reasons you think.
The note was addressed “To the individual who scrawled the word “faggots” into our door.” It went on to notify the person that, “We regret to inform you that you completely failed to use glitter paint and/or sequins, your work looks rushed, and your handwriting was positively atrocious.”
It continued to say, “It is for these reasons that we had to remove your work from our door with sandpaper.” And ended with, “Fabulously yours, The Gays in Apt. 611.”
Too bad the perpetrator did not do a better job on his vandal. Otherwise, the two may have thought twice in removing it. The fantastic response of the couple is very commendable. Instead of crying foul over the matter, they decided to make it a laughing matter. The mention of glitter paint, nice handwriting, and glitter – things that are stereotypically “gay,” only made the note funnier. It showed how the couple doesn’t take the hatred for homosexuals seriously and took it lightly, without any bitterness. It only highlighted the perpetrator’s foolishness and made him look like a total idiot for doing so. Now that is what it means to take the high road. Stay classy.
