This thread is in response, to what appears to be a young gay activist writer, who has taken it upon himself to tell the rest of us [who he deems not to be sexual minorities], that we cannot use the term “coming out” when speaking of our own…well…our own coming out.
…In fact, this statement covers my reasons [most of them] for identifying this type of behavior as “hate speech”.
…If the socially privileged perverts are going to be hypocrites, then this needs to have an enormous spotlight glaring down on it.
The guy who wrote this goes by the name halfwrite, halfwrite89 and “Callum Hunter” [Not sure if that last one is a creative pseudonym, or legal name]…The version I was made aware of, appears on his personal blog [http://writeitquick.wordpress.com/]…Not sure how long he’s been writing, but he’s not been blogging there long.
My take is…he appears to be a mid-twentysomething who is gay or bisexual, and who has been brought up in the whitewashed, politically correct, sanitized and carefully packaged “LGBT rights” world…Hence, the painfully obvious sense of self entitlement, when it comes to being territorial about words and phrases…and the lack of hesitation or qualm, in dehumanizing other minorities.
…And what Callum did here, is in fact dehumanization…It is dehumanizing propaganda, implying that we are beneath people like him, and that we have no right to stand or behave on equal footing with people like him.
I would recognize this as clear hate speech…because it is the very thing.
The danger posed by people doing this sort of thing…is that they have the potential of steering large and powerful social groups, towards hyperbole hysterics…stripping whomever they’ve demonized, of any manner of human rights.
In this specific case…creating a conflict over the use of “coming out”, when no true conflict even exists [this is something Collum has made up and thrown out there, possibly because he is trying to lite a fire under his freelance writing career?], is an act of defying our human rights to self identity…as well as to self determination, and ability to communicate.
His implication that we should be banned from “coming out” in preference for “revealing ourselves” [Doesn’t that just sound like “something sinister has been exposed”?], is extreme condescension.
I’ll throw out the title of the post I am planning to write [or record vocally, maybe] for my blog…and just inform Collum right here, that “Coming Out” is a Human Experience…There is nothing about it, which was ever reserved for the LGBT community…Heck, Atheists have been using the term for years.
In fact…”coming out” is every bit as deeply engrained in our culture, as Child Lovers and Teen Lovers, as it is in the LGBT culture…The only real difference here, is that the LGBT culture stands in a place of far greater privilege than we do…and they have gotten away with incorporating the term “coming out” into their own integration strategy [ie: “coming out day”].
…But we have been using the term “coming out”, as far back as I can recall…And frankly, Collum is extremely late to this issue, which he looks to be trying to pick a fight over…
…Or, maybe he is just this naïve, and I have no right to read all of this into his intent?
I’ve been bemoaning for years, the way politically correct LGBT groups have been sterilizing their own past, and grooming sexual minority kids towards this dangerously unaware, uncritical and self entitled outlook on not just life…but on themselves as a group…
…Paired with the monstrosity the LGBT cursed this world with, of mindless chanting retorts, yelling so loud as to drown out everyone else, general bullying, and just doing everything within their power to manipulate and damage people of differing viewpoints [ie: lots of garbage, I believe was heavily influenced by “the jerry springer show”]…and turning this noxious behavior into the norm, when what we really need in this world will never be possible, because of that type of behavior…
…I can see clearly, that the LGBT movement has done a tremendous amount of damage, to the only world I have to live in…And I am very displeased.
The LGBT as a group is an oxymoron…It’s a group self purported to fight hate, discrimination and misunderstanding…while simultaneously pumping out drones who produce hate, discrimination and misunderstanding…and they do nothing to correct this.
I do not equate individual gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people with the LGBT movement…I treat them the same, as I would treat any other human being, be they “normal”, Child Lover, Teen Lover…whatever…Which is why I am very supportive of individual gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered rights…
…But LGBT seriously needs to crash and burn, in a blazing death.
