Update on Dopey's Petition

Well, dear reader, I've been a bit quiet of late but thought I'd post a quick update on a story I posted two months ago. Dopey-Fae wanted 10,000 people to sign her petition against the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Two months ago it had been signed by '54' people. I put the number in inverted comments as I showed at the time that the numbers had been falsified.

So how has the petition fared over the past two months? Has it received a flood of signatures from the scores of people outraged at our vulnerable, impressionable youth being exposed to the recollections of homosexuals about their own childhood and adolescence? Well, not exactly. It's actually received one more signature to bring the total to 55... but of course that total still includes four 'missing' signatures so the actual total number of signatures received since December 2009 is a rather underwhelming 51.
