Woman-bashing, fat-shaming, resorting to personal attacks against women regarding appearance when we don’t agree with them… what’s up with this, anyway? Julie Compton, a lesbian who endures regular rude and insensitive treatment because of her looks, speaks out on the frenzied social media attacks regarding the looks of Kim Davis. Davis, you might remember, is the county clerk jailed for contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Compton takes the dignified approach to this situation and comments individually on several of the social media posts.
Social media is putting Kentucky clerk Kim Davis on trial for more than refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
