'This Is the Point': Colorado Shooting Follows Rise in Anti-LGBTQ Vitriol
www.vice.com

...Late Saturday night, a 22-year-old gunman opened fire inside an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, killing five people and injuring 25 others in a tragedy that follows years of escalating anti-LGBTQ rhetoric in the U.S."and, according to advocates, could have been prevented.

"It didn't surprise me; it angered me," Erin Reed, a trangender activist and researcher, told VICE News. "It doesn't feel like this was inevitable; it feels like this is the point."

Advocates and experts have long warned that LGBTQ people and venues could increasingly be targeted in person as Republican lawmakers push false anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and increasingly introduce anti-LGBTQ policies. This year, the Boston Children's hospital, which provides gender-affirming care to youth, received bomb threats after far-right figures posted about it online and wrongly accused healthcare providers of "mutilating" and "castrating" children. In September, a pride center was vandalized in Florida, and protesters in Eugene, Oregon, threw hand grenades and rocks last month outside a pub that was hosting a drag queen storytelling event.

"All of us have been sounding the alarm that this was going to be the end result"we've all known it, and we've all tried to get people to listen to us," Reed said....

So your alias makes an assertion.

And then it posts a link that does nothing to substantiate that assertion.

Somehow, my usual, "do try harder" seems orders of magnitude out of its realm with your current alias.


Your alias has made specific assertions. Please provide specific substantiation.

...apparently 'choking' prostitutes is not administratively unsound in that jurisdiction.
The point is, this behavior, all of it, is antithetical to family structure. And the family is key to continuance of any civilization, society, and species. Any legimate society is properly centered on POSTERITY. Everyone has known this always. To be sundered from posterity is to be a slave. Please note that the drivers of our society always set up multi-generational structures for themselves, and encourage surrogate sexual activity for the hoi polli.

I guess this explains why you don't think gays should be allowed to have families.

But what about a family that has gay person in it?

Do they disown the abomination?

< rant >

You want to see hate blooming in all its ugliness?

Watch Florida. The Republicans now have a supermajority. There is no buffer. DeSantis will have free rein. The Florida GOP has already announced putting "don't say gay" on steroids, with Sen. Dennis Baxley (R) putting out a bill to "curb an epidemic of children coming out as gay." Yep. You heard that right. Apparently Florida has an epidemic of children turning gay.

But there's more:

"Baxley, a funeral director, was openly critical of the marriage equality act, called lesbians "dysfunctional" and opposed legislation allowing same-sex couples to adopt children. He sponsored legislation that would have made gender-affirming care for minors a felony."

And more - on minors getting abortions, oh hell - on abortion period. You name it, if the right-wing culture war has even thought about it, Florida's going to do it.

This is the GOP. This is DeSantis. The petty tyrant that has the Right and dumbass Cubans (just the dumbass ones) enraptured with his "family values" and being sent by god.

God help us all.

"The five people who were killed in the nightclub that night, there is no evidence at all that they were Christians. So assuming that they were not, that they had not accepted the truth of the gospel of Christ and affirmed Jesus Christ as the lord of their life, they are now reaping the consequences of having eternal damnation," Ellis said. "And that is far, far greater " we should be having that conversation. Instead of just the tragedy of what happened to the body, we need to be talking about what happened to the soul and the fact that they are now in eternal separation from our lord and savior Jesus Christ."
