    No question about it: Between White Replacement Theory and Straight Replacement Theory, in 4-5 generations not a single straight, white person will exist outside of a few pockets of racial purists living in the mountains of Utah.

    Stephen may not have recognized that Bill Mahar was satorizing Marjory Taylor Greene (Marjorie Taylor Greene Predicts Straight People Will Soon Be Extinct) and the other Republican ignorati who have shoved aside thinkers like Bill Buckley and George Will as the intellectual apologists for conservative thinking, but I think that we may have hit a new low. MTG has apparently hired Milo Yiannopoulos, the former poster boy for MAGAY homosexuals. Milo, of course, is now 100% straight. I think that we have now officially crossed the line between the ridiculous and the sublime.

    Does the percentage of LGBT people or people of color have any legit impact on their human rights and human dignity? Sometimes I think that this is what some conservatives are implying in a less-then-kind manner.

    Historically, that has been the case in practical terms.

    The idea that minority status has legal impact on the human rights and human dignity of minorities is at the heart of White Replacement Theory. If that were not the case, conservatives would not fear the emerging majority status of people of color.

    Isn’t it odd, that some conservatives claim that racism no longer exists, are also little, white snow flakes over being ‘replaced’ as the ethnic majority.

    Yeah, well, current conservative thinking abounds with cognitive dissonance. Witness the contrast between Republican insistence on parental rights and legislation in Florida, Kentucky and other states making it a felony to for parents to take a child to a drag show, with attendant termination of parental rights. To date, Republicans have not yet criminalized 1950’s television viewing by children, but that will probably come in the next wave, and if it does, Republicans will have to no qualms about government monitoring of private television viewing.

    Across the board, conservative thinking is irrational at this point, in a way that it was not when the conservative movement was shaped by thinkers like Bill Buckley and George Will. The conservative movement is currently driven almost entirely by fear that white, male, Christians will lose the power to dictate our laws and culture according to their own lights, and seething resentment at inroads into that power that have been made over the last fifty years.

    I care not how many people are statistically heterosexual or LGBTQ. I care about everyone being free and equal.

      If the entire population were gay, everyone would be equal. Then the human race would be in danger of extinction.

      There are more important things than two ends of a scale being 180 degrees horizontal to each other.
