There is, of course, no evidence whatsoever for the inane, hateful assertion that is the headline of this post. It unjustly demonizes an entire class of citizens by reducing them to caricature, and assumes, with no evidence beyond the writer's serene ipse dixit, that outliers are cultural norms.

Obviously, persons who say things like this do not deserve to participate in the public discourse of serious issues.
