Progressives are (mostly) hesitant to denounce a 9-0 decision in favor of a Catholic social service agency’s right to not include same-sex couples when placing foster care children, pointing out that the decision was made on narrow grounds while at the same time calling for passage of the Equality Act to ensure that religious exceptions are prohibited under federal law.
Some of the more perceptive commentaries follow below.
Bruce also writes that during the height of the gay rights struggle when “far-Left gay activists — most of whom preferred ‘queer’ to ‘gay’ — who didn’t want a place at the table but, as one of them told me on the ‘Charlie Rose Show,’ wanted ‘to turn the table over.’ Meaning what? Meaning that they weren’t in it for reform but for revolution.”
And now, “Add it all up and it’s hard not to see it as the beginning of a sweeping set of revolutionary, society-wide changes of precisely the kind that the queer Left wanted to achieve with the gay-rights movement, but never did.”
That said, the modern LGBTQIA2ZJGKSA+ Pride Movement™️ is a woke disgrace that erases gays individuality and uses identity as a partisan cudgel.— Brad Polumbo ??⚽️ ?️? (@brad_polumbo) June 1, 2021
Embrace pride, reject Pride™️.
Case in point:
James Kirchick observes:
#Pride2021 hadn’t even begun & @nytimes ran two pieces in 3 days w/ the myth that Stonewall was led by “trans women of color”— James Kirchick (@jkirchick) June 1, 2021
First was @rgay asserting that the gay rights movement itself was “largely ignited by Black trans women and young gay hustlers”https://t.co/gZqZG0Q09k
Last year when the trans Stonewall lie formed the basis of an entire Times article, I wrote to standards editor @CorbettNYT and a “correction” was issued.— James Kirchick (@jkirchick) June 1, 2021
How many times will the transwashing of Stonewall be pushed in the NYT (and elsewhere) this month? https://t.co/l8GnuE9DeF

On March 24, 2013, @GLAAD formally dropped “Gay & Lesbian” from its name, becoming merely the acronym.— LGB Alliance USA (@LGBAlliance_USA) May 26, 2021
This couldn’t be any clearer than in the current moment, as they shamefully abandon the gay & lesbian youth being sterilized by a procedure the majority desist from with time. https://t.co/CkoXsUMUa1
“If you are LGB, why do you write so much about trans-related issues?”— LGB Alliance (@ALLIANCELGB) May 19, 2021
Because part of our work is a large-scale disentangling process. Sexual orientation & gender identity are different issues. Combining them has caused confusion and harm, especially to young LGB people.
Where are your words about how dangerous it is for us to perpetuate the homophobic notion that it is better to medically transition gender non-conforming youth than to allow them to grow into the (mostly) gay and lesbian adults that they would be if left alone? #letkidsbeGNC https://t.co/nwj9r1I3Jy— LGB Alliance USA (@LGBAlliance_USA) May 27, 2021

We represent a large number of lesbians, gay & bisexual people who don’t feel represented by LGBTQ+ orgs. We look forward to a wide-ranging public discussion, including people of widely different views, of how best to protect the rights of different groups.#FairnessForAll— LGB Alliance (@ALLIANCELGB) April 21, 2021
Lesbians, gays & bisexuals are distinct groups with specific needs and rights. Our voices need to be included in all relevant policymaking decisions.— LGB Alliance (@ALLIANCELGB) April 20, 2021
LGB Alliance is reviving the campaign to protect the rights of people with same-sex sexual orientation. Join us!#SexNotGender
Since @RepCicilline/@DavidCicilline introduced it, people ask us “Why is a group dedicated to LGB rights concerned about the Equality Act? What’s not to like about a law that protects people from being discriminated against on the basis of sexual orientation?”— LGB Alliance USA (@LGBAlliance_USA) February 23, 2021

Some people struggle to understand the point we’re making. We’re men and women whose sexual orientation is to others of the same sex. #SexNotGender. We see gender identity as a regressive & sexist concept. We make no demands about pronouns since we see that as compelled speech.— LGB Alliance (@ALLIANCELGB) April 30, 2021
