LGB is Worried About T
I wrote before about a growing rift in the LGBT community between the LGBs and the Ts. A number of gay people who spent years trying to convince Americans that they were just normal people who deserve to be part of America, with jobs, homes and families like anyone else, worry that all their efforts are being destroyed by the “Trans” people, who are taking over their movement and becoming the public face of it. They’re doing things that many gay and lesbian Americans strongly disapprove of, like forcing drag queens and groomers into elementary schools, performing lewd acts in public in Pride Parades, and destroying women’s sports by demanding that hulking biological males take all the trophies from females.
You know they’ve pushed the crazy radicalism too far when even gays and lesbians are tweeting, “Men are men. Women are women.”
Bill Maher recently pointed out that the grand marshals of New York’s Pride Parade included a “trans man” but not a single gay male. Author J.K. Rowling, a liberal and feminist, and some lesbian icons of women’s sports have been demonized for standing up for women’s rights. And in the latest example of how males-claiming-to-be-females are taking over the movement, police in Cardiff, Wales, removed a group of lesbians from a Gay Pride Parade because they were “causing confrontation” with the trans marchers.

The move by the LGB folks to dump the Ts has grown to the point that it now has its own trending hashtag on Twitter: “#LGBDropTheT.”
That link has some more recent encouraging developments suggesting that the extreme fringe that’s been wagging the dog for too long may finally be getting a comeuppance even from its supposed allies. You know they’ve pushed the crazy radicalism too far when even gays and lesbians are tweeting, “Men are men. Women are women.”
