Well worth 22 minutes of your time.
And worth repeating:
Two orthodoxies embraced by the LGBTQ+ progressive left:
Sullivan adds: “This is because the vast majority of children with gender dysphoria are gay or lesbian; and this is the target population for child sex changes. … In many ways, the threat to gay and lesbian children is as grave a threat as any that the gay world has encountered. And because of the “LGBTQ+” formulation, the threat this time is coming from inside the house.”
Absolutely: “LGBTQ+” prioritizes transing gender-nonconforming gay boys and lesbian girls, and adult gays and lesbians who don’t go along are labeled “transphobic” bigots.
And, more broadly on the progressive left’s cultural confusions and theoretical inanities:
A direct line can be drawn from this upheaval in the early 1990s and the divisiveness in today’s LGBT activist spaces, where “cis gays” — and, in particular, “cis white gays” — are seen as upholders of villainous Western cisheteropatriarchy and its henchman capitalism. …
This is racism, operating under the guise of “anti-racism”, plain and simple. It attempts to end inequality by inverting it and, in the process, is attacking the foundations of the principles that have enabled the remarkable progress our society has made in transcending bigotry and prejudice.
He adds, pertinently:
Before social media, most gays and lesbians naturally reconciled the tension between their sex and their feelings about gender by adulthood. Over the course of puberty, they came to terms with their sexual orientation, and by extension, their sex.
Many gays and lesbians express their gender in creative and individualistic ways all through their lives. We’ve always been a proudly gender-bending community. But until social media came along, very few of us experienced such long-lasting mental anguish about our gender expression that we adopted transgender identities and underwent “sex change” treatments. Nowadays, the rate of medical interventions on gay & lesbian people’s bodies is so high, alarm bells are going off all over the world.
Increasing numbers of people are coming out as detransitioners, people who regret the medical therapies they feel they were misled or coerced into carrying out, under the influence of Gender Fundamentalism. Irreversible damage has been done to their bodies. Upon meeting some of them, the penny dropped for my acquaintance Helen Joyce, a former editor at The Economist who went on to write the bestselling book Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality and who now co-directs the advocacy group Sex Matters.
She put it this way: “Oh my God, they’re sterilizing gay kids.”
I thought “Queers for Palestine” was a joke this whole time, but it’s actually real. The jokes really write themselves. https://t.co/EpdUEnWK69— ܕܘܝܕ (@realMaalouf) December 12, 2023

“Queer for Palestine” supporters SHUTDOWN the Manhattan Bridge last night.
Hamas would literally throw them off of the bridge.
Someone on Instagram just said "If Queers for Palestine actually go to Palestine their pronouns would be Was/Were".— Luai Ahmed (@JustLuai) December 12, 2023
