Hate Mail

It was bound to happen eventually. A reader's mother found a copy of Pride High, went nuts, and sent me a scathing letter. Here's a snippet that sums the letter up:

I am utterly disgusted by the lack of shame in which you conduct yourself. Not only do you live your perverted lifestyle, but you force yourself on other youths, twisting their morals and good sense.

Awwww! My very first piece of hate mail. It's a landmark worth celebrating! But on a more serious note, I'm glad that the reader was a straight girl who is into slash fiction. A young girl who thinks "gay boys are SO totally cute" will probably face less parental wrath than a boy who thinks the same.

Gee. And your stuff is pretty tame. But what a milestone!

OK, that was amazing. You know you're doing well when people start sending you hate mail, dude :)
