Big Trans

We’re living in an era of leftwing ‘gay erasure’

They expect the LGBs to champion and fight for our replacements.

The whole notion would be laughable if it were not so incredibly sad. Gays, lesbians, and bisexuals have been erased from the narrative. (Even during the monkeypox fiasco, activists wouldn’t use the label “gay”. They opted to call us “men who have sex with men”). In the eyes of the activists, the only people worth fighting for these days are trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming—the latter two terms having only been manufactured less than a decade ago.

I often use the term “Gay Inc.” when speaking disparagingly or derisively about activist organizations like the Human Rights Campaign and GLAAD. It has recently occurred to me, however, that this is a misnomer. Instead, I should call them “Trans Inc.” since they do not seem to give a shit about gays anymore.

It’s not enough that these organizations have replaced us with these so-called marginalized groups. To add insult to injury, they expect the LGBs to champion and fight for our replacements. If we do not fall in lockstep, we are branded as transphobic and excommunicated from the community. I, as a gay man, am obliged to lend time, money, and voice in support of people who have absolutely nothing in common with me solely because they have been forcefully lumped into my community. This is the brainwashing religion of collectivism at its finest.

In an attempt to take the edge off of this harsh reality and to make us feel the slightest bit included, activists refer to the collective as “queer”, a word that was until very recently considered a pejorative for gays and lesbians. This bizarre attempt at reclamation and rebranding is supposed to give us a sense of solidarity despite the fact that sexuality and gender expression are in no way comparable.

Of course fighting the age-old battle between collectivism and individualism is just the tip of the iceberg of gay erasure. Activists and gay media have been working hard to erase gay history, again by injecting trans ideology. The trite example of Marsha P. Johnson is prototypically illustrative of this movement. The lie that Johnson was a transgender woman who threw the brick that sparked the Stonewall riots and by extension the gay rights movement has been repeated ad nauseam despite the fact that Johnson was a male drag performer who was not even present at Stonewall that fateful evening. That lie has been pushed to make gays beholden to the trans community and cause, as if we owe them something.

Another more recent example is Louisa May Alcott. Gay media has pushed the notion that the beloved author of Little Women was actually trans. They base this flimsy claim off of the fact that she was masculine and befriended mostly men. These stereotypes are indicative of nothing, but if one was going to read into it, calling her a lesbian would seem a conceivable conclusion. However, it’s as if gay media can no longer acknowledge the existence of lesbians, and they make the wildly improbable and unprovable leap to transgenderism.

While gay activist organizations like HRC erase gays here at home, they ignore the plight of gays in other parts of the world. Homosexuality is still illegal and even punishable by death in many countries, yet HRC has remained silent. Do human rights stop at the US border? Does HRC feel that gays in the Middle East are undeserving of human rights?

HRC’s mission statement includes this blatant lie: “By inspiring and engaging individuals and communities, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBTQ+ people and realize a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all. The Human Rights Campaign envisions a world where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people plus community members who use different language to describe identity are ensured equality and embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.” HRC has done nothing to ensure equality for the gay men in the Middle East being slaughtered at the hands of their families as a result of honor killings.

HRC was built on the backs of gays and lesbians with their blood, sweat, tears, and financial contributions. Why then are activists ignoring atrocities being committed against us in other parts of the world while simultaneously erasing our existence in the US? Simple—money and political power. Once gay marriage was secured in the US, activists feared becoming irrelevant. Their domestic job was accomplished, and their coffers were about to dry up. In order to keep their money and power, they had to invent problems to solve and get the political left to buy into them. Now everyone and everything is trans—children included. Radical gender ideology is the religion du jour. And the gays who are responsible for their creation, success, and wealth are being tossed aside like yesterday’s trash. We are expendable. We are being slapped in the face, and so many of us masochists turn the other cheek and ask for another.
