Normally, I wouldn't give vile, hate-spewing, bigoted jackasses like @LGBTFacts the time of day, but this is simply too funny to pass up.

@LGBTFacts is a Twitter account solely devoted to "spreading the truth about the abhorrent homosexual lifestyle." In reality, that translates to making up ridiculous claims about LGBT people and presenting them as "facts." Here are some gems from their feed:

Homosexuals believe they deserve rights for sticking their genitals in places they don't belong. #LGBTfacts 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Homosexuals descend on Disney Land every year for a special day dubbed as "Gay Day" (to indoctrinate young children) #LGBTfacts #lgbt #ssm 5 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Homosexual "rights" have never been about ending discrimination but taking control of government like the nazis. #LGBTfacts #lgbt #ssm #no4m 5 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Pedophile priests in the Church are closet liberal homosexuals acting out fantasy & trying to tarnish Church's rep #LGBTfacts #lgbt #ssm 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

They get more specific and pointed in their "facts," but you can clearly see what's at work here.

Now, @LGBTfacts only has about 300 followers - so it's not like they are some giant force on the social network. But by using extremely popular hashtags like #tcot and #p2 in their tweets, they are most likely able to penetrate some Twitter conversations. At least it looks like they were able to get the attention of some LGBT activists.

Now here's where this story gets funny. Displeased with the bile being spewed from @LGBTfacts, some people on Twitter decided to turn their handle into a hashtag. And thus began the fighting of hate with humor:

Did you know... putting another man's balls on your eyelids allows you to see through space and time? #LGBTfacts #lgbt #ssm #no4m #tcot #p2 2 days ago via HootSuite · powered by @socialditto

When cornered, the male homosexual can shoot glitter into the eyes of an attacker to blind them. #LGBTfacts #lgbt #ssm #no4m #tcot #p2 2 days ago via Tweetbot for iPhone · powered by @socialditto

The LGBT community uses that abbreviation so people don't catch on to how fabulous a BLT becomes when you add gravy. #lgbtfacts 2 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Once @LGBTfacts caught wind of this campaign, they weren't pleased:

Pro-homosexual twitter accounts are attempting to hijack our #LGBTfacts hashtag like they did with #no4m. Fight back! 2 days ago via web · powered by @socialditto

But the funny #LGBTfacts continued, as did the hate-group's resistance. They even referred to them as the #Gaystapo.

Radical and militant homosexual activists (#Gaystapo) have hacked/deleted Christian soldier @GodsWordIsLaw. Sad day 4 free speech #LGBTfacts 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

(That guy's account is still up and running, by the way)

Too funny -- the bigoted #LGBTfacts hashtag has been hijacked. Check out the hilarious facts therein. 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

The #LGBTfacts hashtag is still active and tweets are still rolling in, so check it out for a little bit of midday humor. It's nice to see humor take down misinformation. And on no other service could you see something like this happen. As one user put it, "I love that people have hijacked #lgbtfacts to mock @lgbtfacts. Twitter is cool like that."
