The Backlash Cometh

The rightwing “Not the Bee” shares a range of tweets that reveal what’s actually fueling the backlash, such as:
— “One day you’re ok with gays getting married, next day they’re telling you kids have to cut their genitals in order to be happy with their identity?”
— “Funny how we went from ‘let us get married’ to ‘let me mutilate your child’ in a decade.”
— “I supported it [same-sex marriage] back then and wish I never had. No offense to gay people who just wanted to be happy but it opened Pandora’s box….”

Across the pond, they actually are following the science.

Gay men and and lesbians standing up to the TQ+ radicals find themselves excommunicated.


The Depths of Intersectional-Left Insanity

Binion adds: “When it comes to ‘Queers for Palestine,’ what’s richly ironic is that many LGBT Palestinians seek asylum in Israel—the same country these stateside protesters are rallying against.”

Progressive, intersectional LGBTQ+ “social justice” activists think that by supporting Hamas and its genocidal policies (look at what children are taught in Gaza) they’ll curry favor with radical anti-Semitic jihadists, the way that Harvey Milk won support for gay rights by supporting San Francisco labor unions. Yes, this is what the intersectional left believes! Coalition-building!

Progressive feminists are now onboard with mass rape.

And this:

Squeezing Out the Middle

Yes, new Speaker of the House Mike Johnson is anti-gay, opposed decriminalizing gay sex and opposed same-sex marriage. It’s also true that polls show many or most Republicans now disagree with him on these issues (55% of Republicans supported marriage equality in 2021 per Gallup, falling back to 49% in 2023 amid unease over bio males in women’s sports/locker rooms and schools pushing trans identities on gender-nonconforming kids, which, for some, seemed to confirm “slippery slope” fears). Nevertheless, the GOP was hijacked by 8 House members of the ultra-MAGA variety, and they were able to force their will on the Republican’s slim majority because the Speaker must be elected by a majority of the House (not the party) and Democrats were all no votes against any Republican.

If a handful of Democrats had bucked their party’s top-down lock-step tactics and chosen just not to be present for the House vote that ousted the more moderate (certainly on culture-war issues) Kevin McCarthy, then McCarthy could have kept a majority of the House without the 8 insurgents. But that’s not how the game is played in Washington.

Here’s an interesting X thread discussing the awful situation of the Republicans held captive by the anti-gay right (again, a minority of today’s GOP), while the Democrats are captive of the LGBTQ gender ideologues (trans the kids, no guardrails) left.


A Way Forward

Countering the Orwellian misuse of language by LGBTQ+ progressives is also vital:

The religious right wanted to “pray away the gay.” Now, the progressive left wants to “trans away the gay,” and gay man and lesbians who defend gender nonconforming gay kids from the new medical-conversion therapy are labeled “transphobes” and “TERFS”—or worse.

HRC’s ‘Emergency’ Declaration

The Human Rights Campaign issues a warning to be afraid…be very afraid:

Via the Washington Times:
>>Mr. Moran said the problem is that HRC has redefined support for LGBTQ rights to include “trans surgeries for minors, biological men competing in women’s sports, and sex and gender identity lessons in kindergarten.”<<

The gender ideology narrative is failing to convince the masses, so it’s an “emergency”!

Promoting the medical transitioning of gay kids is the real emergency that gay people should be responding to:

Where Things Stand

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:
