Earlier, I made a similar point about conservatives and LGB critics of trans radicalism, but focused on opposition to the child transition movement.
I have conservative Christians in my feed celebrating a radical feminist lesbian while progressive queer advocates dismiss the notion of even interacting with her because she holds a single view they find heretical.— Chad Felix Greene (@chadfelixg) February 23, 2020
One Comment for “Strange Bedfellows”

The child transition movement, and opposition to it, will create unforeseen alliances among the “traditional family values” right and gays and lesbians who oppose puberty blockers (or worse) for gender nonconforming kids who, if left alone, would likely grow up gay and lesbian.
I don’t usually comment on this perennial topic, but the thought of forming an alliance between conservative homosexuals and conservative Christians to increase the number of gay and lesbian adults strikes me as so ironic that I can’t help myself.
I’m afraid that this will be the next chapter in the endless saga of “We tried to earn a place at the table and got kicked in the head again.”
Conservative homosexuals, hear this: Conservative Christians are not going to give you a place at the American table — not even the kids’s table — no matter how hard you try to get them to like you.
