I have often considered “coming out of the closet” on this blog by revealing my identity (full name, location, etc.) Some of my regular visitors might know some of those details, but most of the people who visit this site by way of a search engine do not.
I received the following comment on my post about marriage equality this morning:
Spare me the touchy feely political correctness. I think all gays should be shot. And I’m NOT being sarcastic. Sinners.
Although it doesn’t contain a direct threat, it is downright vile, and it reaffirms my intentions to remain as anonymous as possible.
