Will we all soon become LGBTs?
By Greg Strange
Remember those good old days when there was a thing called a “gay rights movement” and all that homosexuals wanted were society’s tolerance and not to be mistreated or discriminated against? It was a perfectly reasonable thing to ask and eventually most straight people – which is to say, the overwhelming majority of people – came around to the idea that such tolerance was a good thing.
That all seems so quaint now when recollected through a gauzy nostalgic haze. Fast forward to the present and we see that what was originally a reasonable movement has been transmogrified over the intervening decades into a Frankensteinian monster that is stomping about the land, wreaking havoc throughout society and attempting to overturn the immutable biological truth of your very existence.
And now, today, we are dealing with a crazed juggernaut that goes by more acronyms than you can shake a stick at: LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender), LGBTI, LGBTQ, LGBTQ+, GSM, DSG, LMNOP, QRSTUV, you name it. And then there’s my personal favorite: QUILTBAG, which, according to a handy website of LGBT terms, stands for “(Queer [or Questioning] Undecided Intersex Lesbian Trans Bisexual Asexual [or Allied] and Gay [or Genderqueer]).”
Follow all that? Unless you have an advanced degree in queer studies from one of our renowned institutions of leftist – er, I mean, higher – learning, probably not. To the unsophisticated, it’s an alphabet soup of crazy. But you better get used to it because for the foreseeable future you are going to be unceasingly pummeled with even more unhinged LGBT propaganda. (And by the way, if you don’t buy into every last niggling bit of it, you’re a bigot!)
Ever since they got the Supreme Court to hand them gay marriage on a silver platter in all fifty states, LGBT Inc. has been drunk with power, marching to and fro about the land, taking advantage of leftist judges and university administrations that grant them their every wish, and winning every skirmish with an increasingly cowed citizenry. Don’t even think about not baking a cake for our gay wedding, Christians. We will shut you down!
They’re even demanding that public restrooms become free zones where transgender folks can go in any restroom they choose without regard to male/female designations. The previous attorney general of the United States, Loretta Lynch (who is black), without irony and with a straight face, compared the fight for bathroom freedom to the historic civil rights struggle of blacks.
I have a dream today! I have a dream that one day little transgender boys and little transgender girls will be able to choose a public restroom without regard for bigoted sex and gender designations . . . .
It’s probably for the best that Martin Luther King Jr. isn’t around to see what passes itself off as a civil rights movement nowadays.
So where is all of this going? Well . . . LGBT Inc. wants nothing less than to utterly destroy all traditional notions of sexual and gender normalcy. Accordingly, they will not rest until society declares, for starters, that one’s sexual preference is neither “normal” nor “abnormal,” but instead is as irrelevant as whether one chooses corn flakes or Froot Loops for breakfast. The same goes for gender behavior, which they believe has little or nothing to do with one’s “assigned” sex at birth. In fact, according to one twisted school of thought, as represented by Canadian trans writer Christin Scarlett Milloy, “With infant gender assignment, in a single moment your [newborn] baby’s life is instantly and brutally reduced . . . from infinite potentials down to one concrete set of expectations and stereotypes . . .
So there you have it. The joyous exclamation since time immemorial of “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” is now tantamount to a hate crime. Welcome to Planet Bazongo where immutable biological laws are jettisoned and replaced with a concocted leftist doctrine so bat guano crazy that it ranks with the biggest lies in all of human history.
But wait a minute. How is LGBT Inc. getting away with this insanity? By going after the young, whose minds are basically blank slates, especially these days. Integral to their plan is to actually “turn” young people, which means to bring as many of them into their fold as possible. The idea is to brainwash young people into categorizing themselves somewhere within the LGBT spectrum. The more LGBTs there are, the fewer there will be left to criticize aberrant behavior.
Their most devastating weapon for “turning” people is probably the concept of “gender fluidity.” This refers to gender identity that instead of adhering to rigid binary gender characteristics, can express itself anywhere along a male/female behavioral continuum at any given moment. So, one can act like a boy or a girl or anything in between at any time one likes. And remember, the “T” in LGBT, which stands for “transgender,” is an umbrella term which includes not just transsexuals, but also anyone who practices any degree of gender fluidity.
And since, you know, we all kind of have a feminine and a masculine side at times, however fleetingly, then, well, one could make the argument that, by this criterion . . . we’re all LGBTs!
How diabolically clever is that? And the plan is going swimmingly. LGBT Inc. has been infiltrating the nation’s schools for years, particularly in more liberal states like California, Massachusetts and Washington, and it’s paying off handsomely. The concept of gender fluidity is all the rage now and to varying degrees is being pushed on students everywhere. At the university level it is, of course, de rigueur. Combine the brainwashing with draconian political correctness that considers LGBTs an aggrieved victim group and you’ve got a potentially unstoppable totalitarian movement.
Although you would hardly know it, there are naysayers out there, like the American College of Pediatricians, for instance, that participated in an open letter to America’s cultural and political leaders. In particular, the pediatricians say that promoting gender fluidity is tantamount to child abuse:
“A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V). . . Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”
In any place other than the alternate universe in which we find ourselves, that would be unassailable common sense. But when you go down the LGBT rabbit hole, two plus two equals five hundred and thirty-seven, and gender is as malleable as Play-Doh.
Most straight people have given enormous ground on their views of homosexuality and the like, but it’s never enough for the LGBT belligerents. Tolerance of gays? Not enough. Laws against discrimination? Not enough. Civil unions for gays? Not enough. Same sex marriage? Not enough. There are always more demands – and even more after that.
In the resulting atmosphere of craziness, then, the Boy Scouts of America cave in to pressure and accept transgender girls who think they are boys. And universities do things like unilaterally altering the English language by expunging gender-specific pronouns such as “he/she” and “his/her.” And the NFL threatens to boycott states that attempt to resist transgender bathrooms through legislation. And transgender murderers in California serving life in prison are accommodated all the way up to getting publicly funded sex-reassignment surgery. And on and on.
For now, LGBTs are enjoying a blitzkrieg that seems unstoppable as they try and rip to shreds every last notion of gender and sexual normalcy. If successful, they will fundamentally transform what it means to be a human being and the results will be anything but noble. Think about what kind of people are being produced by this unconscionable gender idiocy. Are they people who believe in liberty (as opposed to license), the Constitution, American exceptionalism, self-reliance, hard work, capitalism, defending democracy? Or are they more likely intolerant, ungrateful narcissists who care about little or nothing beyond their own self-gratification and often perverse desires?
But don’t expect the lunacy to stop with gender fluidity and specifically LGBT-related issues. The extreme permissiveness that is inherent in those issues will spill over into other kinds of taboo sexual behaviors. If you want to know how far things can be taken, look to Sweden, that progressive, post-Christian, social welfare state that Bernie Sanders thinks is a model of what the United States should aspire to. In that country it has actually been proposed that – are you ready? – incest and necrophilia should be legalized. That’s right, a living, breathing, sentient human being in the youth wing of the Swedish Liberal Party actually uttered, in public, the following about incest and necrophilia: “I understand that it can be seen as unusual and disgusting, but legislation cannot be based on it being disgusting.”
In other words, beyond it being considered “disgusting” by some narrow-minded fuddy-duddies, what’s the big deal, what’s the real harm in it? A corpse will never know the difference and if consenting family members want to get it on, who are we to judge? So if Sven is drilling Ingrid, his consenting sister (or his consenting daughter, for that matter, or his consenting mother), that’s their business and no one else’s. And if by some bizarre fluke she happens to die during the act, why, there’s still no particular reason for him to stop just yet, is there? That might strike some as “unusual,” but according to the aforementioned member of the Swedish Liberal Party, we simply can’t have laws on the books based on nothing more than the subjective feelings of unenlightened old-timers.
This is where human beings go when taboos fall like dominoes and extreme permissiveness becomes the order of the day. If this Swedish vision ever comes to pass, and if the LGBT juggernaut continues its madcap march through society unopposed, there is no depth of sexual depravity and human stupidity that won’t be gleefully plumbed. In that case, Western civilization itself will end up being the sodomized corpse upon which this movement will eventually collapse into an abyss of idiocy, self-indulgence and meaninglessness. Whatever power rushes in to fill the resulting civilizational vacuum (Islamism, for instance) will be rather unlikely to indulge LGBT demands. In fact, L and G and B and T will likely be serious crimes, possibly punishable by death.
But until then, enjoy your libertine liberation, LGBTs, as you steamroll towards the day of your Pyrrhic victory when you can finally declare, “We’re all LGBTs now!”
