BonBon does NOT Approve

If you want to annoy one of my LGBTQ+ friends there are a quite a few ways to go about it, but one of the most effective is to mistakenly think that just because they are gay\lesbian\Trans that they automatically share your views on any other hot button liberal topic. It rather annoys them that liberals and\or the liberal media is promoting the idea that the world is divided into two camps, "straight white Nazi" and "everybody else". And that "everybody else" is always on the same page about everything, all of the time.

I remember a particularly heated argument right before the Trump Pox hit, between a friend of mine who is gay and somebody who had the misfortune to think that this was the same thing as them being pro-immigration and pro-diversity.

The other person, an individual whom I shall describe only as D (As in dumb*ss), loudly proclaimed something to the effect that that they looked forward to the day when homosexuals and immigrants were the majority so that Republicans would know what it felt like not to be at the top of the heap, and they looked to my friend for a public display of support, expecting to receive it immediately.

What they got was an ear full of colorful expletives that cold be loosely be summarized as "If you think that Republicans are bad then you should try living next to a group of people - from a certain country - who can't decide whether the best way to deal with a homosexual is an exorcism or a lynching". And that we, as a country, were welcoming in people from cultures that were at least 100 years behind us when it came to things like tolerance, and that by opening up our borders to people we were also opening them up to their backwards ideas.

I've also seen similar things when it comes to 2A issues, and socialism. There's a tendency by the left to think that if you're LGBTQ+ then you're by definition a Marxist who supports strict gun control. The idea that there might be a thriving gay scene within the NRA is as alien to them as the idea that your gender identity not defining your views on capitalism.

Anywho, Lyra doesn't like being stereotyped. Yay for her.

The topic of the intersection of LGBT and guns reminds me of a sign I saw once. It said, "Armed gays don't get bashed". I like that sign.

The thing about guns is that you often don't get the chance to draw them. Especially if they're concealed.

As a moderate person vaguely on the right I can say that I've noticed a rather stark distinction between an actual Liberal and Leftists. Chiefly being Leftists are just hiding under the cloak of Liberalism to morally grandstand while they are in fact neo-fascists... for the most part =\

That's because a lot of leftists are Gentilists. Which means that they are following the path defined by Gionovanni Gentile: Which is defined as being the pursuit of socialism through constant advancement.


It's probably no surprise to hear that Gentile is also known as the father of Fascism.

Is it a coincidence that it sounds like "Marxist agenda", or am I missing something?

TheBadFaerie's avatar
TheBadFaerieHobbyist Digital Artist

That's quite literally how I intended it. It's was the only pun on the Word Marxist that I could think of.

evg-zhabotinsky's avatar

Oh. Then I definitely don't get it, how homosexuality and Marxism even relate?

On a second thought, that's the whole point, isn't it?

TheBadFaerie's avatar
TheBadFaerieHobbyist Digital Artist

Yeah, you didn't get it by quite a wide margin.


The connection between homosexuality and Marxism is that the left expect people who are into one to also be into the other. Which is what's gotten Bonbon so angry.

evg-zhabotinsky's avatar

Thus why I said that a sane person [who is lucky enough to not live close to that bullshit] not getting how the two can be related is the whole point.

As a leftist who is bisexual, I couldn't agree more. Being LGBTQ+, persons of color, Muslim, immigrant, etc. doesn't mean they have to agree on everything the left says. There are some who are conservative or right-wing. In fact, I don't care if one's a liberal or a conservative as long as they don't shove their political agenda into my face.

My family is part of a refugee resettlement program. We take in refugees from all kinds of different countries train them to be organic farmers.


Near to where I live there's a big gated community that's filled with wealthy East Coast types, and their kids are into the whole SJW thing (We call them townies), and It can be quite alarming to see the way that some of these kids interact with our farm-stays.


The townie kids typically expect them to be ... well ... more or less like a Dreamer. An Americanized, socially liberal, educated teenager, from a diverse community, who hates Trump, supports Sanders, and who is into all of the traditional liberal causes that SJW are into.


And, they're not.


Often the refugees doing farm-stay come from very strict or conservative countries, and a lot of them are African or Middle Eastern Muslims. Or they come from very traditional rural backgrounds where old fashioned beliefs and superstitions are in abundance, and some of them have been through terrible experiences. Like being forced to be child soldiers, or coming from communities that were destroyed by groups like ISIS and Al Shabaab.


By our standards they can be extremely xenophobic, homophobic, and can harbor views on women that my great Grandmother would consider to be backwards. We've had men who won't even speak to you if your having your period, and who've been stood by while a relative was killed for doing something that supposedly brought shame on the family.


The townies can't seem to understand that just because somebody is a minority or a refugee, they aren't always like them.

That's the one thing I hate about SJWs. They fail to realize that minorities can be just as bigoted as majorities. Take my father for example. He's homophobic, and he had told me that he'll kick me out if I get a boyfriend. He also holds some conservative views.

TheBadFaerie's avatar

Yeah, I've heard similar things. They seem to think that a lot of the things that they don't like are exclusively white traits.

Try being a pansexual (gay leaning) bear of a guy, who is an absolute republican and does not support anything liberal what so ever. You have no clue the pure vitriol and hate so called "liberals" throw at me.

TheBadFaerie's avatar

Speaking in general, Liberals seem to either break down or freak out when somebody doesn't comply to their narrative.


They have such a fixed world view that they think some things are mutually exclusive, and can't cope when they find out otherwise.


In your case, they probably see it as some kind of betrayal. If it's any consolation, my extremely conservative family don't know that I'm into MLP, and I'm absolutely not going to tell them because they'd not understand.


It probably won't make you feel any better, but from what I understand you're having pretty much the typical gay republican experience. A friend of mine wanted to go to an LCR type event but was nervous about going on their own, so I went up there with them. We never even got into the building, the entire thing had to be called off because of the leftwing protesters outside.

Funny thing is I don't hide being a brony, a furry, or pan. Now part of that is being someone older (in my early 50's) and having reached that point in life where I just have no more F's to give.

I come from a really small rural town in Michigan, and I from one of the towns oldest and largest families (We were there before it was officially founded), so we;re somewhat set in our ways.


I grew up in the same house as my great grandmother, and she thought that Disney was filth, so imagine what she'd have thought of MLP?


My family don't get Anime, or cosplay, or pretty much anything like that.

That was good and so true. Keep up the great work. All I have to say is the major problem in the world right now is nobody wants to debate or discus anything and it is destroying this nation. A republic will fail if no one wants to meet in the middle ground, open debate and communication is the key to running anything.

You only need to go into our colleges to see whose behind a lot of this.


I've lost track of the number of times I've tried to go to an event, or even a music concert, and mobs of people from out of town have showed up in rented mini-vans and have blocked the entrance so that people can't get in.

Wow...a sad tragedy that I know only too well as a black man. No matter what we do, we're still treated as 5th class citizens. 😭😡
TheBadFaerie's avatar
TheBadFaerieHobbyist Digital Artist

To be honest, most people that I know who are black are from tough inner city neighborhoods in places like Detroit, and most of them are girls, so my views on these matters are probably come form a rather specific perspective.


But I think that the unpopular truth is that a lot of people feel like they are being treated as 5th class citizens these days. I've been in a room on numerous occasions with people from all kinds of backgrounds who each believe that everybody else in the room had it better than they did, and that the other groups represented in the room were discriminating against their own group in some significant way.


You should hear a Japanese-American, a Korean-American and a Vietnamese-American all competing with each other about how much prejudice their respective communities face. And how each of the other groups was discriminating against them.


As a white rural conservative, I could go on for days about the number of times somebody has heard my accent and has labeled me as being an inbred yokel or a racist, or both, based purely on my pronunciation and grammar. I've been spat on, refused service, been called derogatory names, and had things thrown at me, and that's just while trying to pick up my vendors pass at a comic book convention.


The world in general would be a better place if we all stopped hating on each other, but also if we all stopped believing that everybody else was hating on us.

Right. Fair enough.
