Progressive Bigotry.
Posted 1/6/16


I've been thinking on the bigoted threads circulating about as of late. With all of this talk about thinning out the herd within the ranks of liberals of gays and transgenders, I think its important to say, the left is a fairly diverse group. That being said however, alot of this talk in the spirit of "gays and transgenders not speaking for us" doesn't really address the underlying problem, which is the desire to exclude glbt and other undesireables from american politics. If you think about the many discriminatory threads on homosexuality and gender conformity, it almost seems liike its less to do with trolling liberals and more of a genuine desire to try and change the political landscape of the forums, to "balance" it. Almost.

Not so fast. There is a deliberate effort to label GLBT as mentally ill. It used to be considered that in the DSM. The mentally ill are some of the most vulnerable people in society, it would seem advantageous to put glbt in that group.

I'm wondering if this itself is a form of political extremism? Why must people hate ppl for being different? What can be done about this mindset? Discuss your thoughts on the rash of outcries from self-described moderates and conservatives.

Really its a few users that rally against gays and other groups by making shit posts, lately its been increasing abit. Forum politics is hardly reality though, but it might indicate how people feel out in the real world. Separating genuine idealism from trolling is the hard part.

I find that the comments that come from the anti-LGBT people are usually people that also happen to be religious. I'm seeing a strong correlation between religion and anti-whatever. It's what their book of lies tells them. They also like to say, "But I'm not __phobic, I just don't agree with this lifestyle" as if that doesn't make them phobic.

Believing that homosexuality is a sin does not make you homophobic. Treating homosexuals with hate, discrimination, or prejudice makes you homophobic.

Also, believe what you want. As I have said before, I used to be an atheist, and had no problem with homosexuality. I am now Christian and believe it is a sin. It doesn't change how I feel about the person committing the sin. Not that there aren't some bigots who hide behind religious beliefs, because there are. However, truly following Christ offers no opportunity to hate anyone, regardless of sin.

Calling Christians and other religious people bigots because of beliefs is an outright assault on religion, usually Christianity, and it is far from the truth. However, you can call my bible whatever you want. As I told someone else, it took me 28 years to find my faith, and it means a lot more to me than any slander you can to toss around.

Also, regardless of my religious beliefs, I believe in the separation of church and state, and therefore support gay marriage rights.

God bless you.

Gonna be honest, I don't think I've seen ANY threads saying, "I hate faggots" or "Gays don't belong!" I've seen a SMALL amount of replies like that but definitely no threads.
