Today, May 17th, is International “Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia Awareness” Day.
This afternoon, I logged into my Twitter to be greeted by this hashtag in the Trends box:
On May 17, 1990, the World Health Organization made the decision to eliminate homosexuality from their list of mental health disorders. Today, if you click on the #loveislove hashtag you’ll be met with a barrage of celebratory comments, videos, pictures, et cetera, all of them touting the okayness of gay and going on about how it’s the only way forward and so on.
All arguments put forth by the LGBT crowd deserve attention. That is, they need to be seriously questioned and put under scrutiny and picked apart. But for this little blog post, I’d just like to problematize one of the recurrent propositions that keep popping up in these tweets.
LGBT people are human beings? Well, no durr.
Nobody questions whether LGBT people are human beings. Yes, they are indeed human, just like you and me. They laugh and they cry; they have their hopes, fears, joys, and pet peeves. People who militate against the LGBT agenda do not deny the humanity of individual members of the LGBT crowd. Even if their eagerness to put faithful Christian entrepreneurs out of business may at times seem less than human.
All human beings must be treated with dignity. Nobody in this world should be able to deny that. However, it does not follow from there that as human persons we are entitled to do anything we want.
The promotion of the LGBT agenda has proven to be detrimental to societies, to free speech, and to individuals on both sides of the fence. While we recognize the humanity of people who suffer from same-sex attraction and sexual confusion, we must also understand that this postmodern SOGI ideology is toxic and must be stopped.
