Teacher gives anti-gay Twitter troll lesson in tolerance (and grammar)

The teacher said that he used to be a homophobe but his LGBTI students taught him acceptance.

An anti-gay Twitter troll was schooled by a teacher on tolerance (and grammar) after he asked this hypothetical question:

‘As a straight man, how do u feel about your child having a homosexual teacher!? Who their around for 8 hours of the day!’ aspiring rapper @Naj_Mullah asked his followers on 30 December.

haitreason, a teacher from Texas, had this amazing response:

‘If a gay teacher teaches my child the difference between they’re, their, and there, I’m good,’

His response was retweeted more than 33,000 times before the original message and reply was deleted.

The teacher explained that he used to be a homophobe but his LGBTI students taught him acceptance.

‘Thank y’all for bringing shame to homophobia,’ he wrote. ‘A great way to close out 2015.’
