It’s Eireann Dolan, girlfriend to Oakland A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle, who wrote this open letter to A’s fans who weren’t happy that the team was having an LBGT night. (As the daughter of two moms, I’d say Ms. Dolan did the family proud):
Dear season ticket holders who wish to sell their tickets for LGBT Pride Night,
Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs and as long as nobody is getting hurt, I’m happy. I also can’t stop you from selling your tickets. I won’t tell you that you are wrong or that you are not allowed to think or act that way.
We live in a free country, after all. You are free to think and say and do whatever you’d like.
In fact just this morning I used my freedom to eat yogurt with a steak knife because I ran out of clean spoons (because SOMEone forgot to turn on the dishwasher last night). Who was going to stop me? That’s right. Nobody. Nice try bin Laden.
I ended up cutting the corner of my mouth on the knife, and it wasn’t one of my brightest decisions. But I may have just invented a DIY smile enhancement. And I will sue you if you steal my idea. #America
I digress. So, A’s fans; if attending a baseball game on LGBT Pride Night makes you at all uncomfortable, it is probably a good idea to sell your tickets. And I have the perfect buyer. ME!If you’d like to sell your tickets to June 17th’s LGBT Pride Night
game, I will buy them from you at face value. As many as I can. No judgments. No questions asked.
From there, I will donate any tickets I purchase to the Bay Area Youth Center’s Our Space community for LGBTQ youth.
That way you don’t have to feel uncomfortable, and the seats don’t go to waste. It’s win-win.
Please tweet at me (@EireannDolan) if you’d like to sell me your tickets. I’ll purchase as many unwanted tickets as I can out of my own pocket. I also encourage other A’s fans to do the same. Let’s fill the stands that night!
Love,Eireann and my hella gay moms
Here‘s her blog. Read it.
Hope the damn stadium is PACKED.
Wait a minute — she’s STRAIGHT? What happened to her mothers’ GAY AGENDA?
Okay. You are now to blame for my losing the last 45 minutes. I have posted a comment “at” somebody who complained about The Gay Agenda. I have read all the blog posts back to October 10 and “The Time My Brother Died But Didn’t.” I have laughed a lot. She’s a very funny writer.
She really and truly is.
There’s a pistol. I bet her moms are bustin’ their buttons.
And how about those A’s? Send an email to the offices here with a subject line “Thank-you” and a message of support.
Great idea. Thanks, Leftover.
Good move! So, these people who weren’t happy about the LBGT Pride Night….were they afraid someone might force them to sign up and join the gay club? Or they may be tattooed with “Gay Agenda” phrases? Or they may make a new friend who turns out to be gay, which (every homophobic knows) means they are really gay? What exactly, I wonder, are they afraid of?
What’s that Gandhi quote? It’s not hatred? It’s fear? I just botched a Gandhi quote and I haven’t even showered yet.
“So, these people who weren’t happy about the LBGT Pride Night….were they afraid someone might force them to sign up and join the gay club?”
No no no! They’re afraid someone might make them Go Against Their Religion, don’t you see? Choosing to be in the presence of those intentionally-sinful people is sinful in itself! I guess…….. And besides it makes them feel icky.
Baby, Teenage, and Cranky Jesus are all crying.
Because they are without sin? Since when?
Well, without THAT KIND of sin, of course! It’s the worst! It’s an abomination, and these Good Religious People only commit little acceptable sins. I guess.
