So over in England (a country), some gay activists want to cancel a gay pride parade because it will cause "community tension," between gays and Muslims.
The march was a response to anti-gay stickers placed around town, but some worry this event could hurt Muslim feelings.
Here's part of a letter from a group of concerned types, who claim the march will "oppress other marginalized groups."
"We want both homophobia and Islamophobia addressed as a collective problem and not feed one against the other, we do not recognise these as distinct categories."
So, let's rewind: homophobia and Islamophobia are the same thing.
Okay..I gotta ask: do you think they would also group homophobia and anti-Christian attacks as one and the same? Do they see crude jokes aimed at Mormons as no different than anti-gay jokes?
So why are they embracing Muslims as marginalized brethren - and not others?
Well, for one, it's HARDER to protest around people who "really" hate you.
So better to stay out of Islam's way, and target the gentler dissenters, like white pudgy Christians - the people who remind you of dad, and don't want you dead.
And so here we have fear, masked as tolerance, forcing gays into contortions even circus performers wouldn't try.
I mean, how can the gay left defend a religion whose practitioners want gays punished? They're joining hands with folks who, in other more extreme lands, might cut off theirs.
Anyway, let me remind you that I hate all parades, so I don't mind if it's cancelled.
Marching to celebrate something you "are," as opposed to " have achieved," seems odd. And later, I often wake up naked in a bush.
And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe.
