‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

Bear in mind as you read this story below that many American liberals and leftists often…

– especially the ex-Christians, or the guys who use the “Exvie” (ex-evangelical) tags on Twitter, or some of the Facebook groups that rant about Christian spiritual abuse and in favor of leftist identity politics –

…behave as though American evangelical Christians or Republicans are the biggest threats to homosexuals.

Aside from homosexuals, the Taliban (Muslim extremists) don’t like Christians; I just heard the other day that Christians trying to flee Afghanistan say that if the Taliban catches a Christian, they will set a living Christian on fire.

I’d be a little less concerned if someone won’t use my “pronouns” or refuses to bake me a wedding cake over my sexual identity or behavior, and more concerned over being shot or burned alive by Muslim extremists for political or religions disagreements.

A gay man trapped in Kabul has said the Taliban ‘are hunting us’ as he gave a harrowing description of what a life under the extremists’ rule would look like for the LGBTQ+ community.

The man, whose identity has been concealed for his own safety, said the Taliban would take pleasure in hunting down and killing LGBTQ+ people in an exclusive interview with MailOnline.

Gay Campground Gets Accused of Hateful Transphobia for Banning Female Genitals

Gay Campground Gets Accused of Hateful Transphobia for Banning Female Genitals

I’m sitting here as a conservative, a non-woke, never- been- woke, non- ally,  watching in some amusement as the left eats one other!

I remember when a lot of homosexual men, the “g” in LGB(T), used to harass Christian bakers, photographers, or florists, for not wanting to provide their services or artistry, in, or for, homosexual weddings. Many Christians were sued out of business, or almost, over that.

Now the shoe is on the other foot!
This is the third or so blog post I’ve done in the last couple of months of how the far left, usually the “T” in LGBT, harassing cis (biological) male homosexuals.

I hope any of you homosexual guys who used to harass straights or Christians over the legalization of gay marriage, whether IRL or on social media and on blogs,  are now feeling sheepish or remorseful over that, because you are now on the receiving end of the same behavior you used to dole out. How does it feel?

We’re living in interesting times.

An easy example: the evolving concept of gender and its inclusion in a gay/lesbian alliance.

Originally, “gender” related to grammar. Then we were told it’s the same as “sex.” Then we were told it’s a societal construct. Then we were told it’s within us when we’re born.

And also:

(Link, off site): Official Harvard Guide: Gender Can ‘Change From Day to Day’

Meanwhile, homosexuality — an absolute attraction to the same sex (as opposed to gender) — holds down the “L” and “G” in the same grouping amid which “T” defies the convention.

As society evolves, we’re working our way through:

Apropos, in Michigan recently, a clash of initials occurred.

Businessman Bryan Quinn had an idea: Open a gay camping area in the spring.

The co-owner of Camp Boomerang RV Park and Campground — in the city of Orleans, roughly 50 miles north of Lansing — posted to Facebook an explanation of the camp’s concept.

Biologically speaking, Bryan envisioned the vacation destination as exclusively male.

These days, what’s the best way to put that into words?

Last month, here’s what he composed:

Camp Boomerang is a private, membership-only RV park/campground that allows only “guys.” A “guy,” in terms of this discussion, is defined as a person with a penis, [who] presents himself as male and has a state-issued ID that says “male.”

Clear?

Bryan must’ve braced for a bit of backlash:

We understand this statement, unfortunately, may not make everyone happy, but feel it needs to be clarified.

“Being a ‘private membership only’ entity,” he wrote, “allows us the ability to build a like-minded atmosphere.”

….As reported by the Advocate, not everyone was on board.

While some critics declared they definitely weren’t “like-minded” toward the policy, one nay-sayer inquired as to whether there would be “penis checks” at the entrance.

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

If an adult born of one biological sex later in life wants to pretend to be of the other biological sex, I don’t entirely care (so long as it does not negatively impact me or other people), but I DO NOT support this idiocy, where facts of life, like biological sex, are denied!

People should not be hounded online, or banned or suspended from social media, or receive hate mail from people, or face being fired from their job, for knowing and saying that most humans are born one sex or the other, or for stating or acknowledging truisms, such as men don’t get periods or get pregnant, and women don’t have testicles or penises.

Woke-ism does not respect science – but then, I suppose the idiots on the left consider science “whiteness,” and hence “white supremacy” (eye roll), so they’re fine with ignoring it, I suppose.

The far left activist crack-pots (and many in the Democrat Party) are demanding everyone else in society speak in their woke terms and deny scientific realities. This is not okay.

(Link): Harvard lecturer blasted by colleague for defending existence of biological sex

Harvard lecturer Carole Hooven took heat from her own colleague after an appearance on Fox News this week in which she asserted that biological sex is real and defended the continued use of terms like ‘pregnant women’ and “male and female.”

“The ideology seems to be that biology really isn’t as important as how somebody feels about themselves, or feels their sex to be,” Hooven told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday. “The facts are that there are in fact two sexes — there are male and female — and those sexes are designated by the kind of gametes we produce.”

Liberal Bill Maher Is Right About Cancel Culture and Wokeness

Liberal Bill Maher Is Right About Cancel Culture and Wokeness

Bill Maher is one of those liberals I can occasionally agree with.

I agree with him on many of the subjects he raises in these videos (they are in this post, below),
except for his swipe in one moment of one of the videos below, where he takes a shot at the border wall –
– the Democrat Biden Administration has been an utter disaster  on immigration and a failure at keeping the U.S. border orderly and safe (the Biden administration has also failed to keep illegal aliens safe), which I intend to make a post about in the future.

The rest of his points are spot on, though.

….He reeled off a series of instances where officials and creative staffers faced consequences over decades-old behavior. In one case, the opening ceremony’s musical director was ousted over a 1994 interview in which he admitted to bullying fellow students when he was a child in school. “Remember when your teacher used to try to scare you, they’d say, ‘You know, this is going to go down on your permanent record,’” he said. “No longer an empty threat now.”

The Culture War is a Leftist Offensive

The Culture War is a Leftist Offensive

I am not in agreement with all opinions of this author on other subjects, but on this one, yes, I sure am.

Republicans and conservatives used to participate in the Culture Wars (I’ve spoken out against this in older posts on this blog, such as this one or this one from 2013),
but in the last few years, it’s been the left, the liberals, and the Democrats, and the “Never Trump” Republicans who have been initiating and perpetuating the Culture Wars in the United States – but they keep acting as though the evangelicals, the Trump voters, conservatives, or Republicans, are behind the Culture Wars.

Democrats have become more extreme on social issues, and they aren’t prepared for the backlash.

July 8, 2021
by Peggy Noonan

The word now is radicalized. So many people feel pushed to the edge and are pushing back.  Go to social-media sites and search “school board meeting” adding descriptors like “explosive,” “outrage” and “chaos.” Parents are rising up. New York Democrats just picked an anticrime former cop as their mayoral nominee.

Other signs that suggests a spirit of having been radicalized: Longtime alliances based on natural affinity are loosening.

Conservatives by nature support and respect the military. That’s changing among some of them, or at least becoming less reflexive, under the pressure of changes of political correctness and a woke brass.

… There’s a sense in America of a continuing political realignment, that it didn’t all start and end in 2015-2016.

I think that what happened last summer, when the streets erupted and statues toppled, is being answered now with a pushback – a quieter one but no less consequential.

…. [Author Kevin Drum wrote a recent editorial on his blog.]

He titled the piece bluntly: “If you hate culture wars, blame liberals.”

The Associated Press Re-Defines the Word ‘Mistress’ Out of Woke Concerns

The Associated Press Re-Defines the Word ‘Mistress’ Out of Woke Concerns

I realize that American  culture has long held double standards regarding sexual behavior, that men are allowed to be slutty, which only enhances their reputations among some, but if a woman is slutty, she gets referring to as a great big whore.

So yes, I am sympathetic to a point with the AP’s rationale behind this – but – I don’t fully support it.

Rather than holding men equally accountable for reprehensible behavior, “woke” moves like this one just seem to be watering down the same egregious behavior when committed by women. I myself don’t approve or EITHER biological sex committing adultery.

(Link):  ‘Mistress’ becomes woke brigade’s latest target

The Associated Press Stylebook, which has traditionally set standards for language usage within the media landscape, mystified Twitter users Tuesday when it tweeted a reality-bending, wrist-slapping admonishment.

“Don’t use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later,” the tweet read.
