"Why do you care what transgender individuals call themselves?”
Because you have made me.
Since the redefinition of marriage in the United States, citizens have come to realise that the “equality campaign” was the public face for a much deeper agenda.
Not satisfied with redefining family and marriage – cornerstones of society – or enforcing tyrannical social laws, activists from the LGBTI community continue to increase their demands.
What are those demands? An all or nothing approach to gender ideology: everyone must accept the full spectrum of the LGBTI movement, and those who do not are punished.
Those who naively hopped on board the same-sex marriage train are now witnessing these consequences – and they are regretting their ‘yes’ vote. Bethany Mandel, a writer for the Federalist, once actively supported same-sex marriage, but has since abandoned the movement because of its proponents aggressive, bullying tactics:
During that debate, I was like many of these younger millennial conservatives. I naively thought the issue was merely about gay marriage, and thought “Hey, marriage is great, so let’s just give into the Left’s demands about the redefinition of a cornerstone of our society because not doing so would be bigoted.”
But there was more to the Left’s battle with conservatives than that. It wasn’t just about redefining marriage to these activists; it was also about punishing those who weren’t 100 percent on board, especially religious Christians. The livelihoods and lives of bakers, photographers, farmers, and the CEO of Mozilla were destroyed for not completely adhering to the Thought Police’s demands. These Americans were made to care.
Despite the “live and let live” mantra, which was cleverly trademarked for the equality campaign, there is nothing disinterested or tolerant about the movement. On the contrary, it has become obsessed with forcing people to accept their agenda, pushing gender ideology down the throats of the silent majority, and becoming irate when people fight back.
The Left has shown the totalitarian manner in which it exacts support, or at least silence, from everyday Americans. We’ve seen how lives were destroyed in the wake of the gay marriage debate, how many individuals were shouted down into submission by the side that proclaims itself to be “open-minded” and employed the slogans “No H8” and “Love Wins.” For many conservatives, including myself, the lesson has been learned.
Those who think that this epidemic has just taken hold of people in the United States are dead wrong. These incidents are not limited to a certain country or socio-political system – they are direct results from the redefinition of marriage.
As the postal vote comes to a head, with many still on the fence about how to vote, reach out to help your fellow Aussies to understand what is at stake. A ‘Yes’ vote will not just restrict free speech – it will compel speech that agrees with the “Approved Opinion”.
You will have no choice in the matter: you will conform, or face the wrath of the totalitarian regime. You will be made to care. This is what the ‘Yes’ campaign supports. A chilling end indeed.
