BY ANDREA HOUSTON – Here is a list of despicable people, many of whom tweet under their real names. Fly, monkeys!

The hashtag started to trend on March 12, according to Polari Magazine. The account, @homophobes — specifically created to re-tweet shockingly homophobic statements on Twitter — captured 100 tweets from thoroughly disturbed people who said they’d actually murder their children if they turned out to be gay. These are real people, with real names and faces that go beyond avatars.
@homophobes, which is "run by a homosexual," wisely advises to #ThinkBeforeYouTweet.
