IS VIOLENCE AGAINST NON-HETERO PEOPLE INCREASING DESPITE OVERT ATTEMPTS TO NORMALIZE THE NON-HETERO AND MARGINALIZE THE HETERONORMATIVE?
They say there is a 51% increase in violence against lgbtq+ or alt-gendered people. Violence is not acceptable, period. What’s alarming is that this is increasing while the culture-bearing institutions all favor this group of people and treat even the slightest hint of disagreement with them as if that slight disagreement itself is violence.
Perhaps the definition of violence has migrated to verbal things that are not agreeable, hence the high percentage of 51% claiming to experience violence. Or maybe people being told they have to walk around on eggshells and parrot the latest shifting terms and language on pain of being canceled has actually made them hostile to non-hetero people.
The latter may be making some feel that lgbtq+ and alt-gendered people, in general, in general are themselves a threat to their peace, and their freedom to just be. The non-hetero become bogeymen and the fear drives people to violent rage. Or so the theory goes. The former, that the definition of “violence” has expanded to mere words, may be inflating the statistics so they can do more of the social shaming and canceling to force people into active acceptance and participation.
One of two things will happen eventually, if things run the same course. First, society will shift and becone wholly “anything but monogamous-hetero” or “cis-gendered”, as some wags want to refer to just normal people. Second, the backlash against anything non-hetero will become inense and possibly be used to justify more authoritarian countermeasures, but it will not work as the general violent rebellion could get intense.
One suspects that the actual goal is to erase the heteronormative in favor of an undifferentiated sexuality driven by pleasure and typified by temporary transactional relationships. In this scenario, the average person has nobody closer and more reliable to themselves than a sexual hookup. This makes it easy to control people. But if the chaos of violent rage misdirected at the people being used to justify authoritarianism as opposed to the actual authoritarians.
Option three, where we sidestep the game the ruling class wants us to play, is for people to stop trying to force the alt-gendered ideology on others. In this scenario, everyone learns to let each person, family, group, and community of people do their own thing. Nobody has to be non-hetero or hetero or anything but all must show due respect for their basic human dignity and human liberty.
You don’t have a right not to be offended. You don’t have a right to have everyone accept everything about you. You have a right to expect to be defined as no more and no less human than anyone else and to have your dignity and liberty respected.
As for families, groups, and communities of people who reject things you think are perfectly good or who embrace things you think are bad, you don’t get to dictate your values to them. You should not in any way seek to shun, shame, cancel, or otherwise interfere with how they do life together with those they choose to affiliate with.
The kind of inner circle community of people I affiliate with are most certainly of the mind that marriage for life between a man and woman is God’s only design for humanity. We believe children ought to be raised by their own, or adopted, mother and father who are married for life. The extended family and then larger close-knit communities of people consisting of a few extended family groups all based on this form of marriage and child-raising is to us the perfect fractal of an advanced civilization.
You don’t like it? Lump it. But if you engage in any form or degree of tortuous interference, like trying to cancel people and shun or shame them for choosing the way they want to do life with others, then you are nothing more than a criminal, morally speaking.
It may be that all this increase in alleged violence against the alt-gendered rainbow crew of anything but “heteronormative” people is a function of dishonesty in what defines “violence.” If may be that some or all of this is a twisted, and wrong-headed, “self-defense” reaction to feeling that “these people” want to stamp out your way of life and punish you for not going along with their practices.
As irrational as that last bit sounds, since almost nobody who is non-heteronormative cares what you do or how you live, it is true that the culture-bearing institutions in this land are all controlled by a ruling class establishment that very well may want to reshape society. They aim to atomize individuals through the alt-gendered ideology to wit our only freedoms are sex, drugs, and abortion, but actual human liberty is no more.
But the idea that some trans or gay person is a threat to you or wants you to join their club or at least affirm that what they are doing is good, even if you don’t agree it’s good for you, is irrational. The ruling class are just as happy to see you forced into a non-heteronormative sociocultural milieu as they are just to stir the pot and make you angry enough to harm someone just for not being heteronormative like you.
It would be interesting to know if these stats reflect actual violence or just a migrating definition that equates any act of even peaceful disagreement with violence. On the other hand, anyone who thinks it’s OK to physically hurt someone else over such things is totally wrong, regardless of how much the ruling class may be trying to incite such fear and rage.
