Continuing on from prior posts about the new anti-LGBTQ+ backlash and how trans-extremism, especially when directed at encouraging gender-nonconforming minors to transition, is undermining the hard-fought gains that gays and lesbians have made:
Politics & Public Opinion
‘Back in culture war hell.’
L.A.’s Major League Baseball is inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, drag street performance group to accept a “community hero award” on the field of Dodger Stadium at LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16.— I Meme Therefore I Am 🇺🇸 (@ImMeme0) May 24, 2023

Debate and Engagement on Transgender Issues
Brad Polumbo ably explains the libertarian/classical liberal view that people have the right to live their lives according to their own values as long as they afford others the same right — a perspective opposed by cultural conservatives who want the state to restrict advocacy of transgenderism and by woke LGBTQ+ activists who want to close down debate on controversies such as medical transitioning of minors and bio males competing in women’s sports, as embraced by those who tried to cancel this event and block people from attending.

He disagrees with @michaeljknowles but opted to engage him and maybe accomplish something.
Trying to shut down speakers rather than engage them is childish and suggests you know you don't have better arguments. https://t.co/nTG0UxxgKE
