One Baltimore resident thought she was just hanging a set of innocuous rainbow jar solar lights in her yard. Little did she know she was actually creating some sort of — er — “homosexual haven.” A neighbor, appalled by the so-called “gay” sight, left Julie Baker a crude note that has the social media world up in arms, according to Wonkette.
But don’t worry, Baker handled it.
First, take a look at the note written by the anonymous neighbor:
“Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone It Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be Forced to call the Police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.
A Concerned Home Owner.”
Baker passed on the note to a friend, who then decided to pass it on to George Takei, an activist best known for his role in the Star Trek TV series.
“…You know what happens when [Takei] posts things on Facebook,” Wonkette said. “ALL GAY HELL breaks loose, and the damn thing has gone viral.”
The note, which has nearly 24,000 shares on Facebook, pinched a nerve with many users:
“If someone hangs decorative jars in their yard and you think of homosexuality, I have some bad new for you,” a Facebook poster by the name of Natsumi Takanawa said.
“Tone it down??” Facebook commenter Christopher H. Justus asked incredulously. “After a letter like this, my yard would look like Las Vegas.”
Well, Baker is taking Justus’ advice. If the “Concerned Homeowner” and “others” thought Baker’s yard was “relentlessly gay” now, they better grab their rosaries because Baker is about to turn her home into the most insufferably “gay” residence you’ll ever see in your life.
Launching a GoFundMe campaign, Baker is asking for $5,000 to paint her home in vivid rainbow colors:
So, I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my Home even More “relentlessly gay” If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!
Because my invisible relentlessly gay rainbow dragon should live up there in style!
Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!
Baker has already surpassed her $5,000 goal and received more than $43,000, so far, to make her home look like a Gay Pride float.
