I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but over the last few years what is referred to as the LGBT Movement has grown from strength to strength. Around 15 years ago this movement had little publicity, but it is now mentioned on a daily basis across the West’s top newspapers and news channels. It enjoys the support of the majority of Europe’s democratic parties and has activists embedded in all of them. It receives generous financial support from the taxpayer, both on a national and EU level. During the recent Pride events big corporations changed the colours of their logos to match the LGBT flag. It has even been granted access to schools, where the LGBT vision of life is taught to our children. Any mention of the movement in the Western press is more often than not accompanied by people waving colourful flags and smiling.
So, someone may ask, “What’s the problem? This is good, no? A part of society that was once imprisoned and subject to electric shock treatments is now free!”
Well, when I studied A-Level History at school, one of the most common ways of beginning an essay was, “On the surface, it appears that…but underneath the reality is…” or “While it may appear that…a rigorous study of the available sources allows one to conclude that…”.
In 50 years, when historians choose to study the LGBT movement, it is likely that they will begin their essays with: “While it appeared that the LGBT movement was simply righting the wrongs perpetrated against those people who were sexually attracted to people of their own sex and ensuring that these people were accorded the sufficient protections to live a life without fear of discrimination, the real objective of its leaders, that overrode all others, metamorphosed into grabbing political power through identity politics and holding onto it for as long as possible, whatever the consequences.”
Comparisons – the spearhead of today’s LGBT movement is now analogous – can be made with Communism, which seemed to promote the idea that everyone is equal, which sounded nice, especially to the workers in Tsarist Russia, but that quickly ended up, as George Orwell pointed out, with the movement’s leaders becoming a bit “more equal than others.”
Another aspect of Communism, which interestingly is largely brushed under the carpet by most academics (to the extent that no one blinks an eyelid when a History Professor hangs a Communist flag in his room, while a History Professor that hangs up a Nazi flag is lynched on the spot – even though both flags represent contemptible movements that have killed and maimed millions of people), is the brutal persecution (and yes, discrimination) of anyone that dares raise their head above the parapet and question the ideology proposed.
The LGBT movement is already way out there. And it’s seriously lost the plot. After a succession of achievements over the last fifteen years, now we are all bigots and homophobes for pointing out the insanity of its current causes. What the LGBT movement now wants is too often sinister, and anyone who gets in its way is a target.
And the problem with that, as History teaches us, is that if an ideology is not based on the truth, or doesn’t even pretend to be, crazy things can happen and the ones that end up losing are always the weaker members of society – such movements need victims as fuel. Based on the information published about today’s LGBT movement, one can conclude that:
- If a child with a willy (we used to call them boys) begins to wear a dress and says that he wants to be a girl, the LGBT movement would be in favour of granting him all the support he can get to wear a dress for the rest of his life. Access to surgery and hormones wouldn’t be a problem and, if you’re lucky enough to live in Europe, it’s likely the taxpayer would cover the costs. And if the homophobe parents try to get in the way, the State would no doubt kindly step in.
- If that same child (or now adult) decides that he actually wants to be a boy again, then he may find that the local LGBT Community Centre has randomly changed the locks.
- If you are sexually attracted to the same sex and you don’t agree with the ideology pushed by the LGBT movement, best to keep your head down; especially if you own a famous fashion brand.
- If you are a child up for adoption, even if there are many couples (a man and a woman in this case) yearning to look after you, the LGBT movement will do its best to ensure same-sex couples have priority. The idea that a child receives different types of benefits from a father than from a mother and vice-versa, and that these are mutually beneficial for development, isn’t important here. In fact, the child’s interests are not important at all; when adoption by same-sex couples is discussed in the Western Press the child’s voice is but a distant murmur.
- If your child attends a state-financed school, where the LGBT ideology is taught (despite having serious inconsistencies with a number of other subjects covered in the syllabus) and you don’t agree with your child being taught this new ideology, then tough luck.
- If you suffer from mental affliction and are convinced you are a man despite not having a willy, or that you are a pedigree champion Labrador, or a Barn Owl, the LGBT movement will open its doors and use you as proof of what they are fighting for, rather than suggesting you go and speak to a Psychiatrist first.
- If you are a person who used to be sexually attracted to the same sex but then changed and began to be sexually attracted to the opposite sex and you decide that you want to help people who are going through similar situations, by writing a book, or giving conferences … then there is a place called Ascension Island a couple of thousand miles off the West coast of Africa which has a very cosy nuclear bunker where you really need to go.
Take the time to look up what LGBT now means:
“The initialism LGBT is intended to emphasise a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. To recognize this inclusion, a popular variant adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer or are questioning their sexual identity; LGBTQ has been recorded since 1996. Those who add intersex people to LGBT groups or organizing use an extended initialism LGBTI. The two acronyms are sometimes combined to form the terms LGBTIQ or LGBT+ to encompass spectrums of sexuality and gender. Other, less common variants also exist, motivated by a desire for inclusivity, including those over twice as long which have prompted criticism.”
I rest my case (…and the next flight for Ascension Island is leaving in 20 minutes).
