In summary, an Illumination writer published a horrifying article instructing parents on how to prevent their children from “becoming” homosexuals. Some monster of an Illumination editor then published that article.

Last night, after I brought the article to the attention of of the pub owner, his reaction was post a supportive comment to the author, including a wrong and horrifying assertion that sexual orientation is a matter of “preference.”

He has since deleted that comment, but I can’t unsee it. It will burn inside of me forever.

I didn’t know the pub owner before last night, but he’s revealed himself to be ugly and foul. And this morning he’s digging in and doubling down on his personal horror show by calling my reaction “baseless.” What an awful human being he is.
