Parliament doesn’t raise the red flag on Labour Day or the women’s liberation flag on March 8th, yet they are expected to raise the Pride flag during Pride month. Pride now appears to be more celebrated than any other political movement. Over the years, this attention — from corporations, politicians, and public institutions — has given the Pride organizations enormous power. Pride has become big business.
This might be seen as cause to celebrate, but while Pride may have begun as a human rights movement for lesbians and gay men — something I and most others support — it has developed into something entirely different.
Not only has Pride rejected sexual dimorphism, biology, and anatomy as essential in defining biological sex, in its support for “trans rights,” it has adopted many controversial positions, including legalization of the sex industry and the surrogacy industry; the promotion of BDSM as a sexual orientation, rather than a fetish; and advocating to prescribe puberty blockers to youth identified as “trans” who are as young as 12 years old.
What other controversial political lobby groups been given access to schools in order to teach children their ideologies? If all political groups and lobbyists were given this kind of access, we would likely view it as a situation where children are being exposed to propaganda instead of knowledge. But when it comes to LGBT, everyone is expected to be on board.
