Have you ever actually sat down and read the things the left thinks?
Despite the facts that American culture is absolutely saturated with pro-LGBT propaganda, from gay Disney characters to men winning “Woman of the Year” to gay propaganda in sex ed classes, the left is still fully convinced they are valiantly fighting a culture war they’ve largely already won.
In fact, as folks like the Benham brothers, who lost their show on HGTV before it even began simply for holding a traditional view on marriage, can attest, you’re much more likely to be ostracized by our culture if you don’t support gay marriage.
The cultural norm is well established: pro-gay is OK, and dissenters will have to walk around with a big pink “H” for homophobe on their chest if they dare even think that homosexuality is a sin.
The really scary thing is that the left sees things the opposite way. Despite the fact that they have been winning the culture war, their victim mentality is far too strong. They’re fully convinced the world we live in–and they’re not talking about Yemen or Iran, by the way, but the incredibly gay-friendly West–is hostile towards homosexuals and gay people.
Enter Seventeen magazine. Perhaps they’ve felt obliged to pick up Teen Vogue’s dimming torch and carry on the imaginary fight against the anti-gay Gestapo and continue to pander immorality and smut to 11-17-year-old girls.
And they’re doing it all in the name of “resistance.”
This month, they are rolling out a new section called “HERE” which is dedicated to (what else?) the LGBTQ community.
In it, they have written a bold mannifesto, rife with snowflakery and a poor grasp of reality:
Now, more than ever—one year after the election of Donald Trump—we need a strong community and a sense of visibility.
The queer community has been a central target in politics, especially in recent history. Trans women have been subject to innumerable hate crimes; LGBTQ people are three times more likely to contemplate suicide than their straight counterparts; the recent bathroom bills and proposed military ban have been direct attacks against transgender people; and, a year ago today, our country elected a new administration, which has acted time and time again to against the LGBTQ community.
This year has been harder than we were ever prepared for—especially for queer immigrants and POC—but it has also proven the strength of the LGBTQ family. Through countless protests, events, and new works of art, we have started our own revolution, and it’s a revolution that is (at its best) inclusive and open to everyone. That’s why, on this one-year anniversary of election day, we want to make it clear that now more than ever, this community is standing together to make ourselves more visible, more united, and more powerful.
Right, this is just what young teenage girls are looking for when they want to read liquid lipstick reviews and interviews with the latest Disney teen star.
They are doing this, they claim, because according to some questionable statistics, more teenagers than not these days identify as queer. While there is good reason to raise an eyebrow at this data, it is also not surprising that teens would take on fad labels when their fashion magazines are promoting this crap.
What do you think–time to start another campaign against inappropriate content in teen fashion magazines, perhaps?
