Dear Haters

I am proud to say that my grandmother on my dad's side was born in Scotland. 

I've been on visits there twice and if I had my way, I would love to live there. 

All of these connections are only strengthened by finding out that the government and police in Scotland are taking an active part in letting haters know that they are not welcome. 

Perhaps all civilized countries might adopt this approach to haters. 

Dear homophobes, racists, bigots, transphobes, and disablers. 

There are things this country doesn't welcome. 

We don't welcome you attacking people because of their religion, where they're from, or the colour of their skin.

We don't welcome you abusing and bullying disabled people.

We don't welcome threatening gay, lesbian, or transgender people, with verbal or physical abuse. 

Haters are not going to hate here. 

That's why if we see anything, we're calling the police.

We believe in acceptance and it's time you accept that.

Yours, Scotland
