People are surprised, but I don't know why. It is logical to me that the first president who favored marriage equality when he took office would have a majority of supporters who support gay rights as well.— Joe Bidens Memory (@FingerBidens) October 13, 2020
Yet Biden says Trump wants to end gay rights.https://t.co/BFmADOkmCm

The formerly persecuted, whose identity and sense of moral advantage is firmly based on that self-conception, can never allow themselves to see that they have become the persecutors.

More. Via National Review:
Joe Biden used the term “sexual preference” in May 2020, and the late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg used it in 2017. Senators Richard Blumenthal and Dick Durbin — both Judiciary Committee members — have used the term in Senate floor speeches over the past decade.
More than any other value, the brave men and women who started the American gay rights movement in the middle part of the last century advocated freedom—the freedom of sexual expression, the freedom to hold a job, the freedom to publish, the freedom to associate (whether at a bar free from police harassment or in a political meeting free from FBI surveillance), the freedom to serve openly in the military, and the freedom to marry. Now that it has achieved those freedoms and a cultural influence once thought impossible, much of what passes for gay activism today is driven by an impulse which is the very opposite of freedom: control.
As I’ve written before, the pagans bloodily persecuted the Christians, and then the Christians came to power and bloodily persecuted the pagans. Communists began as a small, radical movement for workers’ rights, but everywhere they’ve attained power they’ve been ruthless, murderous totalitarians. Those who were formerly outlawed and subject to arrest and worse, once the tide turns and they have the power of government to force others to bend knee, are totally assured of their own moral superiority in doing so.

Thread🧵 : Some people have challenged me over ACB & the courts, asking why I’m so supportive of a nomination that would ostensibly make it likelier that my own (same-sex) marriage would be invalidated. Short answer, among other factors…I am convinced that will not happen…— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) September 27, 2020

Not big-LGBTQ, that’s for sure.
In the U.K., teachers are told not to push tomboys to change their gender just because of the way they like to dress or play.
We try to maintain a measured tone here. But in truth we’re very angry at what has happened, what is happening, to a generation of children who would most likely grow up lesbian, gay or bisexual if not raised on genderbread fairytales./1of2 https://t.co/O8N5ATIXc4— LGB Alliance (@ALLIANCELGB) September 25, 2020
We need to protect lesbian and gay kids (because big LGBTQ won't). https://t.co/RwKi0hD6lO— IGF CultureWatch (@IndeGayForum) October 9, 2020
