Whoops! Anti-Gay Group Raises Money for Gay School Dance

A Facebook group called Stop Safe Schools (a peculiar name) instructed their members to buy every ticket available to an annual LGBT-friendly high school dance so that no LGBT teenagers could attend.

Members of the anti-gay Facebook group apparently did buy a significant number of tickets, but there's a glaring problem with their diabolical plan.

Unforunately for the anti-gay group of haters there are an unlimited number of "tickets," which are really just donations to fund the dance, which is open to all. "Everyone is welcome regardless of identity, allies included, as long as everyone is being friendly and respectful!"


Because the anti-gay group so generously gave their money (over $45,000) to the Minus 18 organization which hosts the event, attendance will be free for everyone this year.

Jesus thanks you.

It occurs to me that even if their plan had succeeded, they still would have effectively donated a significant amount of money to the organization. It's not clear how that benefits the anti-gay group or harms the organization. Ultimately, they would have only inconvenienced and insulted the students who planned to attend.

    You can’t make this up because I wouldn’t have believed it.

    The organization originally wanted to call itself Safe Schools, but someone reminded them it would be unwise to be a hate group with the initials SS.

    I’ve always known the anti-gay knuckle-draggers were morons, but this just blows my mind. Could this be a result of the Trump effect?

    If this idiocy had been predicted they could have oversold their tickets on purpose and still kept the profits. It could have been the successful version of Springtime for Hitler!

    What a bunch of maroons!!!
