It doesn't look like a 6-colour rainbow to me and they don't 'own' the 7-colour 'promise' rainbow of Yahweh or indeed the Sinclair or Pink Floyd 'spectrum' rainbow so I don't follow TBH. The rainbow tick definitely doesn't resemble the weird new LGBTQ+ flag with clashing brown, pink and beige 'intersex triangle' or whatever it is!!!?!

Be 'proud' of what Jesus did for you to break the insurmountable barrier of sin between you and God. Let Him initiate this rescue plan or get busy being 'proud' of the wall of sin!

@Amiga4000

Conflating the gay and transgender debate isn't particularly helpful given that gay rights activists generally aren't demanding we all recognise fantasy as reality and in the process, marginalising anyone else or encouraging children onto a life changing trajectory at an impressionable age.

With all due respect Sir, That is EXACTLY what they are doing! There is not one without the other. Case in point..,.

International Drag Day

What is International Drag Day?

"Noticing this lack of appreciation, Adam Stewart founded International Drag Day in 2009, a day where, all around the world, on every gay scene, we take the opportunity to celebrate and thank the Drag artists that add so much to gay life and culture."

@Amiga4000

I disagree. If anything, I think the entire LGBT#? collective as been basically coopted by the gender ideologues that claim to speak for everyone. Or so it seems. Gay people, like straight people, generally, do not have issues with their sex and like straight people they are physically attracted to other people on the basis of their sex. Note that I'm using sex and not gender, in order to sidestep the nonsensical rabbit hole here. The terms heterosexual and homosexual are pretty clear and unambiguous and the only meaningful difference is the opposite v same sex attraction.

One of the last gay men I asked about their views on "pride" and primarily why they wanted nothing to do with it was, "In gay, not some bloody weirdo."

We do need an international grumpy old man appreciation day, and maybe some flag and symbols to associate with it.

Clinking pint glasses over a pipe and slippers.
No marches to take place but everyone to gather in their local boozer to have a grumble.

Cheers.

If I sound like a grumpy old man, it's because I have young kids I don't want indoctrinating into some cult driven by an ideological motion that's divorced from reality. Especially when I need to train them in the skills needed to make the Amiga great again...

You were always going to be a grumpy old man anyway.
Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
It is your destiny.

As for the other thing, the Amiga will rise again.

Don't worry about kids being indoctrinated, as it won't happen, they never listen.

And the next generation always rebel against the previous anyway.
The current lot who think they are in charge will have the same culture shock we did when we got usurped, lol.

Cheers

I agree that "juvenoia" is a real phenomenon, kids today don't know they're born, etc. but what I'm specifically worried about is the tendency for influential people in our children's lives (teachers, doctors, etc) being expected to be "gender affirming" at the first sign that a boy does anything feminine and vice versa. That gender identity ideology has literally "taken over" the institutions that oversee the wellbeing and development of young people.

I do hope you're right and that the next generation bucks this nonsense, but the cost paid by the current generations really worried me. As someone who has always considered themselves left leaning, it worries me that the only people making any sense are folks like Matt Walsh.

You must live in a weird place, really.
Spend some time watching kids shows on youtube to calm your worries.

I do. It's called the United Kingdom. We are busy importing the gender identity affirmation ideology at the moment. I mean, don't get me wrong. If an adult male wants to be considered a woman and vice versa, that's up to them. They shouldn't expect their choice and their subjective view of reality to be accepted by everyone else.

I could identify as black, though I doubt this would be widely accepted by people regardless of their ethnicity. Oh what, you have to be black in order to be black? Check your privilege, you melanin hoarding bigot! Some of us were assigned caucasian at birth but I'm transracial... You see how ludicrous this is. Even if I genuinely did identify as such, why should other people be forced to accept it?

Your scenario is not as ridiculous as you make it out to be. If I indeed through my words or actions belittled your condition or in some way actively denied you to express such identity views, that would absolutely make me intolerant.

The crux of the issue is critical mass, and it always has been when it comes to society.

Quote:

Here you are personalizing the issue by placing the emphasis on the "being forced". No one is forcing anyone to accept a specific identity claim, rather the movement implores us all to leave behind our outmoded notions and recognize that things are not so simple as "normal" vs. "not normal".

The end of the Roman Empire had a lot of new and 'progressive' anti-Biblical philosophies and ideas including orgies and infanticide. It was none the less a intellectual dead-end perpetuated by lust and self centredness as society tettered on the brink. We are at that point in the UK at least. It is not a "brave new world" it is the death throes of a previously successful and God honouring Western society unless we repent and turn back to God!

If Franko has it his ways (and I do expect so, this time), there will soon enough not be any UK to speak of (and perhaps not even a K, as there really isn’t any popular successor, is there). With Ireland united and Scotland independent, what will happen to the anglican church?

@BigD

Western society was buildt and established despite, and not because of, your so called "god honouring".

It is pretty clear that a common faith in Yahweh/Jesus underpins western democracy and freedoms.

What time? The referendum vote was once in a generation a bit like Brexit. The Scots had their foolish chance to go all 'Braveheart' and then limp off to join the European Superstate with all its pseudo democratic proportional representation technocracy/quango kangaroo court governance....

...and they chickened out because they know deep down after all the bravado and caber tossing that we're stronger together in the United Kingdom!

That's not true. We are not being implored, or even asked to accept the gender identity viewpoint. We are being told to. In some countries, not respecting someone's pronoun choice is now considered a human rights violation. We are being asked to abandon an aspect objective reality and the linguistic tools used to express it that people have used for countless generations. So it's not even a natural evolution of language. Moreover, "outmoded" according to who? Who gets to decide which ideas are outmoded and should be replaced?

You are only allowed to question the validity of this ideology if you don't mind being labelled a bigot for doing so. Nobody has asked me if I accept gender identity affirming "norms" being instilled into my young children at school and nobody will. Thankfully it hasn't gotten quite that far here. Yet.

It would make you “tolerant” of racism and a supporter of racial stereotyping.
