I am writing to announce the Society for the Encouragement of Xenophobia, or SEX. SEX promotes healthy insularity, combats the prejudice against provincialism, and celebrates the beauty of exclusivity. SEX affirms that suspicion of strangers is natural and healthy, and that its free expression is the birthright of every man, woman and child. SEX is necessary because xenophobia is nowadays repressed, persecuted and defamed by Cosmopolitan bigots. These zealots have succeeded in criminalizing xenophobic behavior, and in planting morbid feelings of guilt and shame in the minds of many xenophobes. Cosmopolitan propaganda has also taught far too many people to shun the xenophobes in their community, and to dread xenophobic feelings in themselves. SEX fights back with educational programs that explode the dangerous myths about xenophobia, and that put a human face on the xenophobe community. SEX stamps out the ugly lies and shows that xenophobes are no different than anyone else. They are your co-workers, your children, your friends. But SEX mostly encourages xenophobes with the assurance that they have no cause for shame because God made them just this way.
