Islam does have a point. The idea that Western media is exporting insane sexual mores to Islamic societies via its control on entertainment is factually correct. I fully expect to see Bill Nye referenced in ISIS, MB or al Qaeda literature/video in the very, very near future (they used Miley Cyrus MTV bit where she was eating out a fat woman's ass and that's nowhere near as objectionable as Nye's schtick to a person of conscience). The reason they will is because they don't have to twist anything to make their argument. "Muh Sex junk" is exactly what they will say it is. That Islamic societies' sexual mores are also insane and that the people who are making this point are more violent than Bill Nye could ever be (mostly due to capabilities) doesn't contest the specific point they're making--that the West is intentionally trying to indoctrinate youth in degeneracy. That's what makes # like this effective as a recruiting tool. The salafis don't have to lie or mischaracterize anything. Nye's message is verbatim what they're a few weeks from saying it is. Islam's solution/response is evil, but the grievance, itself, is not BS. Not as long as Netflix/Hollywood is funding ***** like this and holding up people like Nye as some sort of person to be admired

The key themes of the poll gauged Generation Z’s views on the future of higher education, civic engagement, public policy, technology, financial literacy, and personal aspirations. “Generation Z exhibits a strong entrepreneurial, independent, and self-sustaining spirit, with a driving motivation to map out their own futures,” according to the school’s recap of the small pool of data. “They are highly progressive when it comes to social policy, with strong support for universal healthcare, relaxed immigration laws, and equal rights for all people—regardless of sexual orientation.”
Gen Z is more progressive than you Trump#ers want to admit.

I'm continually perplexed/amazed at how folks can get so tweaked around and their perception of reality so skewed.
The "appeal to extremes" logical fallacy is supposed to be just that, a logical fallacy -- not adopted as a true representation of actual reality.
