There are only a few ways to view a song where grown men sing about coming for your children while winking at the camera. Youtube commenters have covered nearly every arena of confusion, disgust, and outrage.
The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, which is a stupid, redundant title and only serves to tell me that you weren’t good enough to make it in the regular chorus, decided to write a dumbass song in honor of Pride month.
“You think we’re sinful, you fight against our rights.
You say we all lead lives you can’t respect.
But you’re just frightened.
You think that we’ll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked.
Funny, just this once, you’re correct…
We’ll convert your children.
Happens bit by bit
Quietly and subtly, and you will barely notice it”….
There’s a full four minutes of harmonizing wtf’s, and I have to say, I’m not amused. Neither is anyone else. IF you can even find a video praising the song it will have about 20 likes and 1,000 dislikes so far. People are pissed.
It’s not hard to get – LEAVE KIDS OUT OF SEXUALITY. What kind of psychopath thinks kids need to celebrate and endorse your sexual orientation? They don’t give a rat’s ass about your orientation, nor should they; they care about lego sets and My Little Pony hairpieces. Leave them alone. Call me crazy, but I think children should simply be left out of sexual decisions. If you need my kids approval on who you sleep with, well first of all you won’t be getting it, but second of all, you have mommy and daddy issues you need to deal with. Learn to live your life.
Gay people achieved equality, but it wasn’t enough. Now we have to celebrate them and buy Pride t-shirts every year so we don’t lose our jobs or get banned from social media. We’re supposed to teach our kids that the LGBT way of life is all about glitter and hugs that we should embrace, and if we don’t then someone will take over our jobs and teach our kids their agenda anyway. Um. Are you trying to breed hate? Because that’s exactly how you breed hate.
LGBT acceptance went from, “don’t shun us from society” to “we want to celebrate our lovers publicly” to “everyone should love us” and now “if you don’t teach your kids to love and accept the gay lifestyle we’ll just do it for you on the sly”. Because love and acceptance. Just not love and acceptance of YOUR views or beliefs.
The only response to this push will be a swift and extreme rejection of the ideology as a whole, and a large portion of society will move in the opposite direction. Like everything the left does, they lack finesse and compromise. Eventually people get tired of being bullied and they will fight back twice as hard. I wouldn’t be surprised to see anti-gay sentiments rising over the next decade. You simply can’t accept someone when they’re beating you over the head the whole time.
And I say that as someone who has gay family members and friends. This is NOT the road to acceptance. A little less eyebrow wax and a LOT less self-righteousness would do wonders for this group. Not one likes a piss-ant. And you guys are singing piss-ants right now.
