Ann Coulter Announces 'Disown Your Son' (for Being Gay) Day


Coulter tweets: "Last Thursday was national 'coming out' day. This Monday is national 'disown your son' day."

GLAAD reacts:

I recognize that this is a joke, and that she is not really taken seriously in any context anyway, but with this coming right after National Coming Out Day, at the start of Ally Week and just days before Spirit Day, I thought this would be a good opportunity to talk about this idea of hers. There was a time in our culture's history when, if thousands of LGBT kids were to come out on the same day, the next week genuinely would be exactly what Ann describes, all across the country. Fathers disowning their sons and kicking them out onto the street. Mothers locking up their daughters or sending them to charm school. Children forced to undergo electro-shock or even worse forms of "therapy" to rid themselves of their orientation. To learn how to not be true to themselves.

And although we've come a long way from those ideas as a cultural collective, I have no doubt that last week, more than a few American households experienced the tragedy that Ann joked about. Approximately 50% of LGBT youth experience some degree of family rejection. There are as many as 100 thousand homeless LGBT youth on our nation's streets, and it's estimated that LGBT youth make up as much as 40% of our nation's homeless youth population. LGBT youth who are completely rejected by their parents are more than 8 times as likely to have attempted suicide. Pretty funny, right?

  1. Attention whore. Her schtick is so transparent.

  2. If there were any justice in this world, the amount of hate in a persons heart would be directly proportional to the growth of cancerous cells in their body...and Ann Coulter would die a long, slow, painful death.

  3. We need a national "Kick Ann in the C*nt" Day!

  4. There is one thing I think is hilarious about Coulter, that she's ALWAYS in a "little black dress" even when she's on a morning show. She looks like she just walked to the studio after waking up in some random guy's bed and didn't bother to shower. And THIS is the darling of The Right?

  5. If there really is a god a house would come spinning out of the sky and land right on top of Man Coulter.

  6. Redundant, it's that day everyday. Conservatives have never been one for nuance.

  7. The GLAAD response actually gets it wrong also - this "time in our culture's history" isn't past, it is now.

    And it is happening in newer ways throughout the country. Last Saturday's Wall Street Journal described how two college kids were outed on Facebook, and were disowned by their inadequate and unloving fathers. (

    So it is still happening now, and is real and serious.

    Time to up the ante, GLAAD.

  8. Narcissistic Personality Disorder? I'll buy that.

    Bi-Polar? Nope. People with BPD say and do the things they do because they can't help it, but Coulter deliberately PLANS her outrages for maximum impact, to promote book sales. She's entirely too calculated to be bi-polar.

    There was an article here yesterday about the Westboro Baptist Church, with people up in arms about them, but Ann Coulter is FAR more insidious and dangerous than they could ever hope to be. The WBC is a joke- a bad joke to be sure but still a joke. No one takes them seriously. But Ann Coulter gets invited onto news shows as if she has something valid to say when she's nothing more than an insult comic- Don Rickles in a wig with a real mean streak.

  10. At this point, she's just Howard Stern with a vagina.

    Hell, she IS Howard Stern's vagina.

  11. I suspect she wouldn't be a good parent in any case.

  12. Towleroad should really stop wasting space on that pathetic hag. I'm embarrassed for you.

    Posted by: Onnyjay | Oct 16, 2012 12:49:21 PM

  13. but she was talking about gay republicans. so it's true. they are emotionally disowned. that's why they then cut their balls off - Burnt Offerings, yo - as part of their plea to be tolerated. just barely.

    she's a sick loser and i, for one, will crack open a bottle of champagne when she kicks the bucket.

  14. There is no one I'd rather pay to see shot through the head on live television.

    (Kiddiing! Get it? It's joke)

  16. She's so desperate for attention. It's very sad. Not really anything else to say about it as her salvos are silly and depressing

    Posted by: david | Oct 16, 2012 1:01:23 PM

  17. Andy, please reconsider posting about her. She has absolutely no news value whatsoever. She's never held elective office or done anything noteworthy or important and is the intellectual equivalent of the crazy woman on the bus who talks to herself. A couple of months ago I decided to stop clicking on news items about her and it's made my life better. (Yeah I broke my own rule here today.) All the media that covers her is helping to keep her in business when she should have been banished to irrelevance after insulting 9/11 widows. I still can't believe that wasn't the nail in her career coffin.

  18. With a horse face like Ann's it's been a tough haul for the ugly gal. She just wants the ugliness that everyone sees on the outside reflect the true ugliness in her heart and brainless head.
    Ann is a proud ignorant c*nt!

    Posted by: SFshawn | Oct 16, 2012 1:03:25 PM

  19. I think the joke, it turns out, is on her - some subconscious little voice inside her head is posting these things to make the big voice inside her look as ridiculous as she thinks either of these things are. What a fool she is.

  20. Strange that anyone would ever crave public attention so much that they would accept such a role in our society to get it. It's a strange thing when you see a woman as an animal. Hard to comprehend what must have gone wrong in her own life that she would take it out on groups of people preceived as vulnerable and therefore perfect targets for her brand of hate.

    Good luck with old age, Ann!

  21. WHY DO we give a fck about wha she has to say?? why? does she say anything new or a life changing experience?? towleroad is drama now. do we need to know everything these idiots say??? NO. then stop giving them attention.

    Posted by: Bosie | Oct 16, 2012 1:20:17 PM

  22. Ann shows her ass once again, SHOCKER!

    I'm intrigued... How will GOProud & Log Cabin spin this one?

    I'm sorry but if you worship this trash that they call Ann Coulter and you are LGBT, you may need to get help quickly. Worshiping Ann would be the equivalent of someone who worships another person who is physically, emotionally, or psychologically abusive towards them.

    This deranged lunatic does has a target audience that exemplifies the following traits: ignorance, uneducated, ill-informed, easily manipulated, governed by fear & hate mongering, and a general selfish & self-centered disposition.

    Let the haters hate & let the lovers keep loving! Peace & Love

  23. Dreary irrelevant troll.

  24. This pathetic self-loathing w$ore will say anything to be noticed, or sell one of her useless books!

    Posted by: BRAINS | Oct 16, 2012 1:49:01 PM

  25. I forget the details but her back-story is actually kind of sad. He father, a Conservative himself, was a misogynist and Ann was his only child. He didn't like or respect women, he wanted a SON, so the only way she could get approval was by attacking "liberals" aggressively, "masculinely."

    He's long dead but here she is, still seeking his approval by acting like an attack dog.

    It's no wonder the GOProud d*cks love her. Like them, she seeks approval from paternal figures by undermining her own worth and rights. "See how good I'm being?! I hate myself just like you hate me!" It's pathetic.
