That being said, who has the right to try to change anyone's preference on gender/sex? Do they thin that Israel will be a success?
I just dont get it, if someone can explain this to me, I would really like to understand the thinking here.
The basic issue is this; Believe it or not, there are places in the world that do not accept the American version of "rights" that all of us have been
forced to accept, either by law or peer pressure. America is well known for its insistence in attempting to force its idea of human rights and
"democracy" on the rest of the world. Of course there is some one-upmanship here as various other entities, such as the UN, have doubled down with
their "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" that expands upon the American one, though it borrows heavily from the American Bill of Rights and
Declaration of Independence.
It wasn't all that long ago that even in America the liberal view on "being Gay" was that perhaps with a bit of therapy these guys could be put right
and the conservative view was far harsher. But today, not only is "being gay" acceptable, but the transgender "community" believes it is perfectly
acceptable for people to use the public restrooms they more closely identify with, regardless of their physical sex. And people like Bruce Jenner are
lauded as heroes. Not only that, we have a Caucasian woman who "identifies as Black" and passed herself off that way. She's on the ATS home page. We
have a 40 year old man who "identifies" with a 6 year old and a twenty-something who "identifies" with a cat, including hissing at dogs.
Our acceptance of being gay is a result of an intentional public relations campaign done by top notch PR firms whose goal was to "turn this around'
and provide for acceptance of gayness, gay marriage, and LGBTt (better get 'em all in there!) rights. it's now enforced by militancy. Our acceptness
of all this was not because of any enlightenment on the part of the populace; it was intentionally engineered.
There are places in the world that think this is kind of crazy, and it goes all the way back to the idea that "being gay" is some sort of genetic
pre-disposition instead of caused by environmental issues and political correctness, which is not at all proven, breathless claims of discovering a
"gay gene" notwithstanding. This "de-programming" angle has been used on cult religions as well. In America, that's illegal. You are free to join the
Bob Jones cult and drink Kool-Aid because that is your right. We in America are "All In!" for everything. Even Martin Luther King is criticized for
his "I have a dream" speech because he wasn't "inclusive" enough. There is no objective reason why we should be against polygamy. It's just a matter
The fact is that American values often conflict with other peoples' values. Usually we are told we MUST accept other values. We're told "Islam is a
peaceful religion," for example, despite the fact that polls show 20% of Muslims think jihad is okay.
Israel is a theocracy. Oh, it may be a "democratic theocracy," but it is still a theocracy. Businesses are certified Kosher. That they allow stuff we
don't is none of our business, and we ought to butt out.
If you want to push for "equal rights" for trans-species cat-oriented people, by all means go ahead, but let's not keep trying to tell the rest of the
world what to do, because they don't like it, and that has a whole lot to do with the reputation the United States "enjoys" these days as well.
