Upon further reflection I felt hypocritical by not helping you with your Internet research day.
First off, for the purpose of this discussion I’m going to be open, honest and sincere. As with everyone: I do have my biases. Feel free to post links with your own views, but don’t expect me to jump onto your ship, and don’t throw a tantrum if I disagree.
I’m not going to censor myself or not talk about things we shouldn’t talk about; especially, if doing so is not polite. Please refrain from name calling, unless it is in making of a point, slander, or contempt for those who don’t see eye to eye with your views. if you are willing to do the same without snarkiness, satire, sarcasm, or using a mob mentality to belittle other thought processes, please continue.
The terms “Conservative”, “Liberal”, “Conservativism?” & “Liberalism” can be tricky to define, given the current time’s monoculture, the race for votes and not for truth, the amount of money and influence poured into molding perception and the deceptive practices by both. On a cursory Google search, I found many inconsistencies between definitions of these words / positions /platforms. I thought we could flush out some of the chaff here in this space. Feel free to comment or bring others into the conversation.
I added “homosexuality” as an easier identifiable qualifier, I didn’t mean it to be a slam or slurr. You don’t have to be gay to be online with a viewpoint which meshes with the homosexual agenda. You are, however, in most cases, required to get indignant when homosexuals aren’t treated like a race of people. Hand shaking and using the word bigot is part of the new social defense landscape.
Would my gay friends agree, or lash out at these statements with fist waiving, kill the beast sort of rhetoric?
(it’s sort of in the same vein as what would Jesus do? WWJD. But, with more “Let’s cripple him” ).
There is, however, a gay culture which has been developing, quite a strong political voice over the last several decades, to the extent of recent Sweden School dropping gender pronouns &
Washington State Now Has Gender-Neutral Laws.
I’m not trying to push a religion nor a sexual preference here. I’m not saying I don’t think gays should be able to get married nor am I attacking feminism. I do think words matter, and I am a fan of pluralism.
I’m trying to focus on this “my way or the highway” sort of position we often have labeled “civil rights”. There is I would have to say, a gay agenda which wants change now, as opposed to a gradual change over the next couple decades.
This changing of the guard seems to be in the same strain as a coup d’etat or toppling of a power structure; without changing the countries name or rewriting the Constitution (which I am interested in because I think our Judicial System and Government is corrupt & beyond repair and obviously unconstitutional in most respects).
Everything is getting more complicated, and decisive. Truth is sacrificed for efficiency or for dodging culpability.

And yet I still like comments like this one by Superdestroyer:
And unfortunately, this is the sort of response I get:
