To the Editor,

I was very offended when I read the Fud4thought cartoon you published on 12/24/01. I was embarrassed for you that you would approve to print such an obscene cartoon. The only "benefit" of this distasteful cartoon was that I was forced into explaining to my children the meaning of ignorance, stereotyping, homophobia and acceptance of differences.

The message in this cartoon perpetuates the intolerance and bias against a part of our population who are already severely victimized because of their sexual orientation. Instead of encouraging ignorance, we need to promote tolerance and acceptance as we try to make our community a better place for all of us.
