Now I am going to make this quick because I have said all I thought I would ever say about Kaitlyn Hunt in not one but two posts.
Kaitlyn Hunt is back in jail. Not because the right-wing is trying to get her. Not because America doesn’t love the gays. But because she violated a plea deal that kept her out of jail. How did she violate this plea deal might you ask? Was she was arrested at a peaceful gay rights rally? Nope. Did she chain herself to a 100 year old oak tree? That would be a negative. It is because she (allegedly) continued to send explicit pictures and texts to the now 15 year old girl that got her sent to jail in the first place.
Oh and don’t get me started about her mother… well her mama needs her ass whooped (figuratively). No matter the conversation about Kaitlyn’s age, her mother is sho nuff an adult (my southern is about to slip in). How dare she (allegedly) send texts to the child urging her to delete the evidence that they were still in contact? If the victim’s mother was anything like Mama KWord… there would have been smoke in the city (ok I slipping further and further).
I think we as gay people are falling into a trap that we as black people have found ourselves in in the past. In our effort to put up a united front, we are backing the wrong people. At least once a year, we are still hearing about how we marched for Tawana Brawley, and we all know we were wrong for sticking behind OJ’s murdering self too.
Wrong is wrong and if a 19 year old man OR woman was sleeping with my 14 year old child I’d send their ass straight to jail (don’t pass go, don’t collect 200 dollars) myself.
One thought on “Sooo… y’all still want to #FreeKate?”
I actually wondered if you had seen this story yet. I think I originally found your blog by you having the same views I had on this case. I can’t even begin to put into words how outraged I was when I heard the latest news. It’s clear that the seriousness of her original charges did nothing for her.
