Is This Blog For Real?

Sometimes the things that get written are so over-the-top that one suspects the writer of being a double agent, intent on discrediting the cause he ostensibly supports. In this case, Don Myers, who runs Captain Normal, a militant gay rights blog, has been writing things so utterly boneheaded that The Dread Pundit Bluto is more than half convinced that Myers is actually a homophobe.

Writing about the soldier, serving in Korea, who received hate mail from sixth grade students, apparently at the instigation of their teacher, Myers says that, "...Pfc. Rob Jacobs of New Jersey balls[sic] his eyes out and writes home to taddle on the big bad sixth graders." Then Myers makes an obscene and insulting post to the soldier's mother.

The most likely scenario is that Myers is the type of person who hates homosexuals with a passion and is trying to foment anti-gay violence by pretending to run a pro-gay website. Either that or he has a room temperature IQ, Occam's Razor doesn't help much with this one.
