The internet is a buzz with the fact that the Gay Girl in Damascus blog is just a hoax. If you haven’t heard, it was written by a man named Tom McMaster who lives in the United States and created for the purpose of trying to get his comments about issues noticed. Here’s a piece of the apology letter:
I didn’t mean to harm anyone who is upset. I didn’t mean to hurt the causes which I myself believe in. I didn’t mean to malign anyone. My intentions were good; I got carried away. I owe apologies to those I hurt and will do all in my power to make things right. I only wanted to set forth real information through the use of artfully crafted fiction. I was too successful and I was too caught up in what I was doing. I ignored the consequences of my action.
