A suddenly rare piece of rational thinking. At the end, I suggest to our progressive and justice seeking friends that the rightness or wrongness of the alphabet soup strain is not a priority discussion. Furthering the implementation of justice, free education, elimination of disease, poverty, famine, are. Promotion of human purity, freedom of faith, happiness and wealth are.I agree with your notion that Western Societies are overly promoting LGBTQ+ culture. But it comes from a disingenuous place.
Let me explain:
First I can only speak of the US, but the country is divided roughly in half by the conservatives who more or less hate this promotion and the liberals who more or less think society should give a stage to those who have been shunned for so long.
I will say it is tiring to be shoved LGBTQ+ information 24/7 and I am not the only one who feels this way.
I should say I am not against what one wants to believe or feel. If someone who is homosexual wishes to be homosexual I think they should have that right. We need to avoid being God in this case. Wether it is morally right to be gay or bi sexual that is for them to decide not fellow citizens.
That being said the spread of transgender, gender neutral, binary, gender fluid, identifying as a horse (a joke) that to me points to signs of mental illness. But again maybe I am not “woke” enough to accept these additions. To me there was always straight, bi sexual, and homosexual.
Anyway back to the original topic, this LBTQ+ promotion is happening from a disingenuous place. It’s really happening from these mega companies who are promoting this as a way to gain further revenue and seem like they care about “social causes”. Quite a number of the executives of these companies are mostly conservative, yet in their press releases they promote this stuff. Very disingenuous. Only want to be seen by the public as up to date on latest issues and generate more revenue.
Hollywood has already milked this LGBTQ+ as much as they can. They thrown a character in every movie just to seem “woke”. If the story calls for LGBTQ+ character by all means put one in, but don’t try to force every movie to have some “wokeness”.
Anyway for Iran this is positive. If Western society wants to destroy its moral and fabric and stoke divisions then it only helps Iran as it weakens the empire.
Anything that gets in the way of those must be shoved aside. Examples are alphabet soup, ‘free speech’, etc.
