Cyber Abuse: The Dr. Laura Letter (Paperback)
In 2000, James M. Kauffman forwarded a satirical letter circulating the Internet, addressed to conservative talk-show host, Dr. Laura Schlessinger. As a result, he became entangled in the raging controversies surrounding homosexuality and same-sex marriage. How he dealt with his unexpected fame and notoriety, and the onslaught of letters, postcard and emails over the past two decades, makes for thought-provoking and entertaining reading. An early victim of cyber shaming and bullying, Kauffman exposes the ignorance and zealotry of self-appointed guardians of political (in)correctness and religious intolerance. Yet, he never loses his sense of humor and celebrates those correspondents who have reacted with open-mindedness, support, kindness and wit.
