The hoaxer behind a fake blog that claimed to be written by a lesbian Syrian-American living in Damascus, and which caught worldwide attention, has defended the stunt.
A writer giving his name as Tom MacMaster, a US student studying at Edinburgh University, admitted the narrative was fictional but insisted it “created an important voice for issues I feel strongly about.”
So apparently Tom was raised to believe that simply feeling strongly about something is a license to lie and deceive, is that it?
