SJWs and ‘Activists’ will Likely Destroy Gains Made by LGB Movement

June 10, 2019 9 comments

As some of you might remember, I have written a couple of posts (link 1, link 2) about how the contemporary transgender movement is creating the conditions for its eventual demise. It is also increasingly clear that much of the external support for this movement is linked to the need for virtue display by some other people. It also bolsters pre-existing CONservative stereotypes about men and women. In this post, I am going to make the case that SJWs and Professional ‘activists’ are very likely to end up alienating the vast majority of people and thus destroy many (if not all) of the historical gains made by gays, lesbians etc. To better understand what I am getting at, let us first talk about the two major categories of minorities.

All minorities fall into one of two broad categories: biologically unlimited and biologically limited. For example- racial or ethic groups who are currently classified as minorities in USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand can become the dominant demographic group in those countries. And the way things are going, we will see that change within our lifetime. My point is that belonging to a race or ethnicity which is currently a minority in a given geographical area does nor preclude that group from eventually becoming the new majority. Groups whose minority status is based on race, ethnicity and religion are examples of biologically unlimited minorities. This is, however, not true for all types of minorities for reasons that will soon be obvious.

In contrast to groups mentioned in previous paragraph, certain minorities are biologically limited and can never become the demographically dominant group in countries they currently inhabit. For example, there is good evidence that (regardless of race, ethnicity, culture or historical era) the percentage of men and women who prefer sexual partners of same sex doesn’t cross ten percent. It is basically impossible for a stable or growing population in any country to become majority homosexual. The same is true for other all other sexual minorities. To put it another way, sexual minorities are also biologically limited minorities. But why is this insight relevant to the topic of this post? And how does it influence what the minority can get away with?

The simple answer is that biologically unlimited minorities can afford to be far more brazen in imposing their will on the rest, especially once they become a large enough minority. They have far more leeway to make mistakes and overreach in their goal of ultimate domination, especially if they are a large enough ascendant minority in a country where the erstwhile majority is in terminal demographic decline. Those options are, however, not available to biologically limited minorities since their percentage in the population will never exceed a few percentage points. To make a long story short, the rights of biologically limited minorities are perpetually contingent upon maintaining the goodwill of majority. The key word in previous sentence is ‘goodwill’.

In a previous post, I noted that the rapid success of movement for equal rights for gays and lesbians was largely due to the issue being framed as an extension of legal equality to historically marginalized and persecuted classes. Their struggle for legal equality was never framed as gays and lesbians being a holier-tha-thou class of righteous and intrinsically superior people who were beyond criticism. And this brings us to the past few years. Many of you might have noticed a recent increase in the number of losers who pretend to be “woke” and see “micro-aggression” in almost interaction they have with other people. You might have also noticed that a small but vocal minority within those sexual minorities trying to claim a special exalted status linked to their alleged intrinsic moral superiority over all those ‘cis’ peasants.

Some may not like my characterization of “woke” sexual ultra-minorities as nothing more than grifters trying to use currently existing public goodwill towards gays and lesbians to elevate their social status and validate their delusions of grandeur. I would welcome alternate explanations for this phenomena which are rational and consistent with observable reality. My point is that the spread of this particular way of thinking among the population most closely resembles quasi-religious cults who promise special status to true believers. It is therefore not surprising that people in the entertainment industry have embraced the “woke” cult. After all, similar older cults such as Scientology or those centered around a plethora of now-discredited eastern spiritualists simply don’t carry the prestige they used to in the past.

But there is one crucial difference between previous cults popular among the effete and declining western “elite” and this one. See.. older cults understood the limitations of their scam and never tried to become mainstream. In fact, many tried to be as secretive as possible. The cult of white “wokeness” (and yes, it is mostly white) is stupid enough to try to enforce its way of thinking on the rest of society. But what harm can come from using hilarious pronouns to humor a few mentally-unusual people? Well.. two major reasons.

First, their demand for special treatment does not stop at hilarious pronouns and gender-neutral washrooms. Read a bit about the controversy surrounding trans athletes (who were born male) competing in female events. Demanding that all biological women accept trans ‘women’ as women is an excellent way to antagonize half the population. Also, do you think biological women will ever accept trans ‘women’ as real women? And why would they? What is in it for them? To make matters worse, a small part of the medical profession is beginning to see this movement as an opportunity to make more money. That is why we are seeing an increasing push to medicalize any behavior in children that appears to be “non-gender conforming”. Do you really think that this is not going to create a rapidly increasing and massive backlash?

Then there is the issue of how SJWs and other professional ‘activists’ who are the public face of “wokeness” behave towards rest of population. The thing is.. getting away with being constantly rude, dismissive and generally abusive towards others requires real power and, even then, is often unsustainable. The current crop of idiots.. I mean activists.. is completely reliant on a few large spineless corporations and existing public goodwill towards gays and lesbians. The real question is- how long will their twin pillars of power hold? More specifically, do you really think that the currently favorable outlook of general population towards gays and lesbians will withstand their association (in the public mind) with these shrill “woke” losers? Corporations, being especially unpopular since 2008, will drop them once it starts hurting their bottom line- directly or indirectly. In other words, their twin pillars of power are made of sand, not concrete.

Perhaps the most unfortunate legacy of this “woke” activism for sexual ultra-minorities is its potential (and almost certain) negative effects on achievements by gay and lesbian movements. A good analogy is how all Germans today often have to answer for actions of Third Reich, even if most of their ancestors were not involved in the atrocities and genocides under that regime. There is no shortage of religious nutcases who would love to use the public dislike and contempt for “woke” SJWS and activists in rolling back many of the rights and protections gained by gays and lesbians over multiple decades- and that would be most unfortunate given all the sacrifices and effort to reach the world of today.
