LGBTQ Jumping the Shark

Timothy Birdnow

Andrew Sullivan is himself a homosexual, which is what makes this so interesting; Sullivan sees the younger generation turning against the gay/trans movement.

From NY Mag:

I wondered when this would happen. How long would it take, I asked, before a younger generation revolted against the new left orthodoxy that there is no sex binary, or gender binary, or indeed any place for biology in understanding the differences between men and women? How long before boys rebelled against the notion that their sex is actively toxic and in need of psychotherapy? Or how long before girls felt violated or just uncomfortable seeing people of the opposite biological sex in their bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers? How many are miffed that they have to compete with biological males in athletic contests?

New data suggests that that time could be now. For the first time, we’re seeing a sharp drop in tolerance of "LGBTQ” people among the younger generation. This is an entirely new phenomenon. It used to be the young that spearheaded toleration and inclusion. Now they’re suddenly bolting in the opposite direction: "The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53 percent in 2017 to 45 percent in 2018 — the only age group to show a decline,” according to the annual [GLAAD] Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63 percent in 2016. (Perhaps they should rename the report Decelerating Acceptance.) "36 percent of young people said they were uncomfortable learning a family member was LGBTQ in 2018, compared with 29 percent in 2017, and 24 percent in 2016. 34 percent were uncomfortable learning their doctor was LGBTQ vs. 27 percent a year earlier. 39 percent were uncomfortable learning their child had a school lesson on LGBTQ history vs. 30 percent in 2017.”

Or check this out: 62 percent of young men regarded themselves as "allies” of LGBTQ people in 2016; only 35 percent now say the same — a near-halving of support. Women "allies” have dropped from 65 to 52 percent. The turn began in the year that the Obama administration — with no public discussion or congressional support — imposed critical gender theory on America’s high schools, determining sex to be whatever a student says it is. The imposition of trans ideology by fiat on the entire country’s young — along with severe public stigma for those with even the slightest questions — was almost textbook left authoritarianism.

Sullivan is right about this and it was inevitable, as the LGBTQ movement is at odds with Natural Law. Eventually somebody was going to see the imperial nudity.

Sullivan hits the nail on the head here:

Of course, there is almost no chance that the gay-rights Establishment will relinquish the "LGBTQ” label. They, like most extensions of the Democratic Party, have completely embraced postmodern critical gender and queer theory. My fear is that this will fail to win support and that, as the trans movement keeps pressing and pressing, the backlash will grow and gays and lesbians will become collateral damage.

The gay rights movement was never about dignity or respect. It was always a tool to further alter society and to break the bedrock of the American People. It was about wrecking the family. It was about making marriage extraneous. And it has always taken aim at the core of Conservatism. The family is the primary educational system, and the way to fundamentally alter Humanity is to eliminate it. Marx understood that. So did Lenin.

There is no better way to destroy marriage and the family then to redefine it.

Kudos to Sullivan for having the courage to say it.

1 I think the "gay rights" movement, or the "LGBTQ movement" it has devolved into, along with the "BLM movement" and the more appropriately named "MeToo movement," are not about society at all but are about "me."

They are attention seeking mechanisms, and means to garner standing and monetary benefit for self. Most of all they are about personal power and the ability to play the role of bully over others.

2 I hear you, Bill; it really is a tool for narcissism.

3 Yes, duh, narcissism was the word that I was looking for.

4 If I remember the Greek tale of Narcissus he was so in love with his own reflection he wouldn't leave the pool. The Gay Rights movement appears to be so enthralled with "gay identity", with being what they do, that they can never walk away from it. They don't see themselves as men who happen to be attracted to other men so much as GAY MEN (or women) whose entire existence revolves around their homosexuality. Not all, surely, but the more political ones, certainly. That is the very definition of narcissism.
