It’s amazing what happens when people are left alone to make their own decisions and come to their own conclusions about certain things. The natural way that people come to develop their opinions on things is the way that real tolerance is reached. The leftist SJWs just don’t seem to understand this concept. They believe that shouting at people over and over again while calling them racists or homophobes or whatever the insult may be, will drive them to accept their point of view on any certain issue. This hurts their cause more than it helps it. For example: Say you’re a person who isn’t completely on-board with the whole idea of gay marriage, but you personally don’t have any problems with gay people and accept that this is now the law of the land. How do you think you’d feel if anytime you expressed your opinion about how you feel about the issue someone shouted “Homophobe!” at you over and over? You probably would start to resent that issue even more. That kind of behavior would probably drive you to be more against it than you already were. The reason? It’s because you’d get into this frame of mind: Why are you going to try to be tolerant of an issue you aren’t completely on-board with if everyone is just going to scream at you and call you a homophobe anyway? In this situation, if everyone just left you alone and let you believe what you wanted to, you may come around one day! Who knows? If not, than that’s alright too because this is America and everyone in entitled to their opinion.
Real tolerance can not be achieved by forcing beliefs upon someone. Even if people will say they’re tolerant just to not get screamed at, that doesn’t mean it’s what they actually believe. This is how the fake tolerance of the leftists is created. It’s born out of fear of being called a racist bigot sexist homophobe and doesn’t do anything for anyone. If you just leave people alone to make their own decisions and believe what they want to, some of them will come around one day. In contrast, if you yell at and berate people for having different beliefs, you’ll just cause them to hold even more resentment than they already had. If you SJWs really want to help your causes, then leave people alone, don’t cause resentment, and let people achieve real tolerance on their own.
Recently, Blaire White did a response video to Riley Dennis, (a popular YouTube transgender activist). Dennis made a video explaining LGBT people’s decision to defend muslims on the basis that not all muslims support Sharia Law in regards to LGBT people. Well, duh! Of course not all muslims want to stone LGBT people to death; however, the Sharia Law that many islamic countries follow does call for the oppression, imprisonment, and even death of LGBT people. Dennis acknowledges this, but then attempts to create a false equivalency with Christianity and again uses the excuse that not all muslims abide by Sharia Law. This point she makes over and over again is irrelevant because we aren’t talking about muslims, we’re talking about Islam! One is a group of people and the other is a set of ideas. There’s a difference, the set of ideas is what we critique. The fact that the LGBT community constantly defends Islam and will make excuses for its completely backwards view on LGBT people is mind-boggling. Blaire White does a great job explaining the absolute insanity of this alliance and dissecting Dennis’ video.
A couple days ago, Mississippi passed a statewide religious freedom act that has many friends and members of the LGBT community up in arms. Popular daytime television host Ellen Degeneres has openly condemned the law calling it, “the definition of discrimination.” The new law will allow private businesses to refuse services to LGBT people. The services included would be wedding venues, counseling, medical services, adoption, florists, DJs, and more. The controversy is whether or not this is protected by the Constitution’s freedom of religion, or if it has overstepped its boundaries and impedes on someone else’s rights. At the state level, these kinds of laws are still able to be passed. However, laws opposite of the one passed in Mississippi can also be passed, and they have been. Many different states have laws of their own expressly prohibiting the things mentioned in the law passed in Mississippi. Laws such as these usually vary depending on which kind of state it is. When looking at a very southern conservative state like Mississippi, this law reflect the deep religious beliefs of the majority of the population while discriminating against the LGBT community in the minority population, and this is a common problem in a democratic system. Eventually, every single state is going to have to deal with decisions similar to this one in Mississippi. This opens up a grey area of law that many lawyers, judges, and lawmakers have been debating for the longest time; where do my rights end and where do your rights begin? As Americans, we know that our rights end where another’s begin. Many of us learned about this when we asked our social studies teacher about why you can’t say anything you want with reference to the 1st Amendment. Figuring out the grey area in between citizens’ rights is tough, but it has to be done, and not everyone will like the persons judgement no matter which side they favor. It’s in the hands of US lawmakers to decide for now and in the future, and all we can do is watch and see how they decide, and those that disagree will take action. Either way, it’s all in the perception of every individual. What do you believe? Leave a comment and share with a friend!
