It seemed like it alternated between "Ha ha, unicorn is a jerk" to not really funny. And I think part of the point was to say, "Hey, you know these things that seem normal and okay? They're actually really jerky behavior." So the author is putting "Hoping his son isn't gay" and "Pushing his religion on others" in the same class as cutting in line or some other "ha ha" jerky stuff. To me, the implication is that many behaviors that are either condoned or considered "okay" are actually really, really jerky.
I mean, if I was asked to compile a list of mean things someone could do "Hoping his son isn't gay" wouldn't show up on that list. But you know, hoping your son isn't gay is actually kind of a jerky thing to do.
And then you have more serious things, like ripping out your kid's heart, denying the holocaust, spousal abuse and pedophilia, I guess to say, "No really, none of this is okay."
